Lookbook: Big Bow

I forgot what store I was at but I saw that they styled the mannequins with a scarf tied up like a bow and I thought it was the neatest idea! I’m always wearing scarves but have never thought to wear it like this. I felt like a big present.

What I’m Wearing:
Cardigan: J Crew
Tank: Express
Skirt: Forever 21
Tights: DKNY
Scarf: store in Singapore
Shoes: Miu Miu


The lighting was horrible so I had to move to the other side of the street so you can actually see the colors of the outfit! I’m wearing the Tuxedo Cardigan from J Crew and I love it. I guess this is my version of a tux + bowtie 🙂 I’ve had this sparkly tank from so long ago when I was in my early 20’s and I went to the clubs and bars and stuff. Oh the good ol’ days. Those days are loooong past but for some reason I kept the tank. I think it was just the right amount of sparkle for the day.


Oh and yes my newest Miu Mius! They are so pretty and so comfortable, I never want to take them off. I have this “rule” that I don’t wear the same shoes two days in a row (it’s bad for the shoe, you have to let it breathe and keep it’s shape) but I wore these two days in a row and my husband was shocked!


Shop the lookbook:

:: The Tuxedo Cardigan ::

Net-a-Porter Paul & Joe Tuxedo-style buttoned cardigan

This shawl cardigan is really cute too or just get a cheap basic, only $16.50!

:: The Sparkly Tank ::

Nordstrom Velvet by Graham & Spencer ‘Kylea’ Sequin Tank

I’m loving this silver one too or this one to step it up a notch!

:: The Skirt ::

Forever 21 Pleated Satin Mini Skirt

or this pretty pleated skirt or this Jacquard Mini Skirt would be cute to add some texture.

random side note: speaking of purple skirts I am obsessed with this pretty tiered one from Anthropologie. It’s on sale too… need it!

:: The Tights ::

DKNY Comfort Control Top Luxe Opaque Tights

You could always go with polka dot tights or patterned tights for a bit more fun.

:: The Platform Pumps ::

Casadei Suede and Satin Platform Pump

These Stuart Weitzman pumps have great height to them and also love these Dolce Vita pumps for a bit of a wedge/pump look.

    Awesome idea with the scarf. Isn't it funny how that happens? I have so many "Oh, duh" moments myself with fashion- I would have never thought to tie a scarf into a bow, and it isn't something I've seen done elsewhere, but still- such a simple concept! I love it!
