We need to talk about this bow. Firstly, you can’t tell from the pic, but it’s HUGE – totally fabulous. And I found it in Claire’s of all places (I thought it was called Claire’s Accessories too, but apparently it’s just Claire’s these days – I think that probably means it’s safe to say I’m too old to be going in there in the first place). For the record, I sometimes still call H&M, Hennes. Anyway, I digress. It doesn’t matter what I was doing in there (it was Shopkins related, that’s all you need to know), but I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this beauty of a bow. I just snipped off the funny metal tag thing when I got home, then boom – the perfect oversized bow which looks anything but £8.00. Love it. And I always love a velvet dress for a special occasion. And as festive outfits go, this one is particularly wallet-friendly. Maybe put the cash you saved towards the Alaïa sandals??

ps: Tabitha has this velvet dress from So Pretty. This one is gorgeous too. And I love this and this one from Olivier Baby & Kids.
