The little black bow

Back when I first started this blog, I wore all manner of bows. From big red hairbands reminiscent of Hello Kitty to dainty little bows that I would just slide into my hair. I still have a bowl full of them but I have to say, I don’t reach for them anymore. I think I could probably have a DIY session with some of the bigger ones and transform them into bow ties. The one below is a brooch/hair clip which is one of the few that I occasionally add to my outfit these days. Oh and yes, the broderie anglaise blouse is a new addition to my wardrobe. It’s so clean and white and it makes me feel Summery already! I wonder how many of us will be rocking the white trend in the Summer?

It’s funny how style changes over time but also how blogs evolve too. From the days when I didn’t show my face to mirror shots which are saved only for fitting room photos these days. Onwards to the present day where my photos are against that all too familiar brick wall. I think after reading how other people describe my blog, (thank you Shouting ID) it’s really made me think. I don’t post as often as I used to and I only blog when I have something interesting to share with little in the form of filler posts. I also don’t like to have constant outfit posts either…so I guess you can expect the next post to be non outfit related! I’ve also learnt a lot about myself and it’s surprised me how personal it is but I guess that’s helped to shape the blog. It’s definitely taken time to find my voice and figure out who I am on this blog. How about you guys?

PS: I somehow made it on to the Most Wanted Fashion 100 2011 list again in the ‘Ones to Watch – UK Fashion Blogs’ category along with lots of other wonderful bloggers! It put the hugest smile on my face so thank you to the Most Wanted crew. Yay!
