When I first saw this, I thought to myself, “Hm. That’s a weird dress.” Then I realized, to my horror, that no – the giant floppy bow isn’t part of the dress at all.
It’s an accessory that you can buy separately, then choose to pair with what would otherwise be a perfectly lovely outfit. The giant bow would drive me nuts because I’d feel it under my chin, or my hair would get caught on it all the time.
Why would you throw a heavy black bow onto this? It looks like a cute, light dress. That black bow is the sartorial equivalent of a giant anchor. How come women’s magazines always advise you not to wear heels with an ankle strap, but they never warn you about wearing giant black bows with white lacy dresses? Oh, right, because it goes without saying.
But what really kills me is that they could have given the model a perfect Blair Waldorf look by accessorizing with this silver bow pendant, rather than an actual giant bow.
Right? All it’s missing is a headband, brightly colored tights, and an awesome eastern European housekeeper/sidekick.
