How friggin' cute is this hat/bow creation made from an old vintage felt hat?! The always-clever Emmerson Merrick from An Apple a Day made it herself.
I admit I'm kinda over bows, I mean I still think they are super cute but I personally feel a little twee when I try to wear one and never quite make it out the door with one on. I guess it just reminds me of my school days (blazers, straw hats, emblems, green bows, and nurse-like uniforms!) and I'm afraid it was quite some years ago...
I think if I was 17 again at this very point of time a bow would be a staple in my daily styling with the likes of Blair Waldorf and Lauren Conrad sporting the never-dying trend weekly on their respective shows- the 17-year-old me would be a diehard fan. I was reading some interview with Leighton Meester and she said that wearing a bow (when she is playing Blair) is essential as it's like wearing a crown. Interesting.
I think this mainstream trend is perhaps on the way out (maybe its already passed) but I think it may always be there for us vintage lovers but not necessarily on our heads I think more comfortably tied at our necks, waists, cuffs or feet! But if I was going to don a bow on my head it would be this one!
