Bow Me

Who doesn’t love a bow? And who can refuse a bow on a little black dress?





Dress: H&M / Boots: F21 / Tights: Target / Watch: MoMA / Ring: ModCloth / Cuff: Laila Rowe


My other love this week? The classic elegance and ageless beauty of the Grecian form.

Ahhh... Grecian fashion. Such elegant, feminine lines. It's one of my favorite styles. I love your LBD with the bow. I have a similar one from Mango. It's such a simple yet chic style.

Oh Courtney! This dress is pretty! Really now, who can resist a good bow? especially when toughened up with some cuffs and boots?

I love bows! That dress suits you perfectly, especially with the way you styled it!

I, like you, love Grecian dresses. I picked up two while in Greece last summer and can't wait to start wearing them again!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

this photo collection is lovely, and i adore bow accents. plus, the title of this post is too clever!

A-Dubs said...

Yep, you're working the bow-dress and those awesome boots.

'Have just finished checking out your ensembles from the past week or so (sorry I'm only now catching up on March details), and wish to give special props to the following: you in the military-inspired black jacket with the excellent red birdie purse; you in the leopard top and velvet bolero jacket; and you in one of your teaching ensembles. Plus those photos of winter wonderlands are helpful reminders of the things that make winter bearable instead of torturous. I so enjoy your blog.
