Doing the Tie Bow

August 1st, 2011

I found two of these neat little bows at a thrift store in PA some time ago. They’re made from paper mache and glued to hair clips. Yep, paper mache. This thing I’m wearing is not made of cloth. It’s probably made from wrapping paper or stationery hardened by water and paste. I had this funny feeling that it was made by young Amish girls who didn’t live too far away from where I got these clips. It’s really quite creative—probably a good Etsy idea? I wore one of them in my hair in one of my older outfit posts. This time, I attached a safety pin to the back of the bow so I could pin it on my shirt like a bow tie.

I’ve been wearing a lot of the same things this summer, to be honest! Just take a look at this skirt I’m wearing. It’s the same exact Talbots skirt I had on in my very last outfit post! I have very few comfort pieces, which I tend to live in, especially when I’m on the go and busy as a bee. So if you feel like you haven’t showered in days, just make sure to compensate with a bit of style! Haha. You think greasers used hair gel all the time? By the way, I did shower the day I took this photo. Oh yeah, I also had my hair cut. I love it!

On the next post, I’ll have to introduce the new game from Beauty of the Fall! In case you don’t know, Beauty of the Fall is the game company my bro-in-law and husband started. After that, more giveaways!

    Your hair looks so cute! LOVE the deep side part! :)
    I know, I’ve been an awful Blogger lately! No excuses, I just haven’t posted! *SIGH* I need to take a shower today actually! I’m trying to stretch them out, it’s supposed to be better on your hair to take showers less often (every 3-5 days depending on your “hair cycle”).
