Monthly Theme: Bows!

The HTML code is not working (bummer!) so I'll do what I noticed a few other bloggers doing. The link to our host Victorian Kitty's blog is at http://www.sophistiquenoir.com/, and her August Monthly Theme blog post is at http://www.sophistiquenoir.com/2012/08/august-1-theme-bow-overload.html. There, I think I covered all the bases! ;-)

 I went with my dad on his courier route today, so earlier I wore a thrifted Express black button-down with purple ribbon bows replacing cufflinks, thrifted Lee Riders high-waisted shorts, Merona tights, and sneakers for running up flights of stairs. My mother picked up the hat for me at the OC Fair yesterday, and the necklace I made myself!

Cufflink detail- and MAN they were hard to tie, even with my long thin fingers-

 Then before lunch, because it was heating up and so I wouldn't mess up my nice shirt, I changed into this, a top combo I've worn before-
 The last, outfit-continuous bow is the silver ribbon bow on my new tiny hat!


  1. Wow, you look fabulous! I especially love the second look, although those tiny purple bows are brilliant! Goths don't rock the shorts often enough... I love how you've styled them.

    Sorry for the delayed comment; somehow I missed the last few entries on the bow theme! I'm so glad you were able to join in. Hopefully the HTML code will be working next month! Thanks for providing the links instead. :)

    1. Thank you! I think we live in the same general area... so you know how hot it gets here. Shorts, and to a lesser extent knee length skirts, are important- and necessary!

      I can barely wait for your next monthly theme, I just love doing them! :-D
