D&OC loves: hair bows

lace rosette bow pin $12; red and cream striped bow hairclip $10; lenton hair bow $12; satin and crochet clip $18; bow what joy hairclip $12.99; heart h $25; fabric bow hairclips $8; mini peter twisties bow clip $8;  full tilt chiffon floral alligator clips $4.99; i am your garden from years ago $15.50tartan bow clip $7; valerie's black bow hairclip $14.99; fabric bow hair clip anchors away $7

I worry that I'm getting too old for hair bows so I figured now is the time to wear them until I'm definitely too old.  I think hair bows are sweet and unexpected when paired with a clean, minimalist outfit.  That's not to say I won't pair a hair bow with a girly ensemble as well, but as much as I don't want to be considered too old for this accessory, I also don't want to mistaken for a 12 year old.  I find people are in two camps regarding the hair bow:  love or hate.  Which is it for you?

Tis the season! If there is any time of the year where a woman can wear a bow in her hair over the age of 18, it's during the holidays. My favourite is the anchors away one.

I love the concept of the bow tie on a chain necklace.

And, my Mama place a big bow tie atop her Christmas tree, and called it her new guy.

Cheers!

I love your reasoning. By all means, wear a bow.

Hope you and B are feeling better.

I enjoy bows, but people mistake me for being 14 already, so I don't know if I can pull them off. Also, they may be a bit too girly for me!
