Speaking of pussy bow blouses...I went crazy for the pussy bow blouse when I first joined YLF five years ago. I had at least five! They fit perfectly with my demure bombshell style. But I haven't been wearing them lately because I felt like my style was moving in a slightly darker, edgier direction. Angie's post was a good reminder that the pussy bow blouse can still be cool!
This blouse was my favorite and was part of my "signature outfit" (http://goldenpig.lookfab.com/p.....ure-outfit) which was the outfit that I thought best defined my style (6/7). In fact I made it my profile pic and haven't changed it for the last five years! Well I pulled out the blouse and skirt to wear them in honor of Angie's post and was embarrassed to find out that the skirt no longer fits. I've gained 15 lb since then, and the skirt shows off my food baby in all its glory. I had a few moments of pity party and almost put the shirt back in shame, but then picked myself up and made it work. I picked a black leather flared skirt and studded stingray pointy black flats, my black Belle (I love the red lining and red edge leather trim), and pearl and gold spike bracelet. I think I actually like this version better! Classic with a bit of edge. Seems my style is going more from boho luxe to edgy luxe. What do you think, did I rescue this blouse, and is it finally time to update my profile pic?
ETA: And is this the "killer twee" that Angie and Xtabay were talking about? Because pussy bow blouses are definitely twee. I think I'm going to have to embrace this new moniker!
