I came across this fabulous vintage couture bow dress at an Antiques shop in L.A. and I absolutely loved the vibrant red color, graphic lines and, of course, bold oversize bow. I was in love! But there was a catch… The dress was about 3 or 4 sizes too big for yours truly. I snatched it anyway and took it to my skillful tailor who, as expected, did a number on it. Fits like a glove and feels fabulous. It’s one of those dresses that puts an instant smiley on your face.
I typically don’t go for bows. There’s something overly girlie about them that’s really not me, BUT… when they come in the right size (by that I mean big enough to make a stylistic statement) and in the right color, then I’m happy to break my own fashion rules.
