{Fashion Friday} Big Bows

This season, ruffles are big, but the bows are BIGGER. They're being used to embellish everything from shoes and hair styles, to necklines and dress backs.  

For many pieces gracing the racks of clothing stores, the bow is not just a cute accessory - it is the defining feature of the outfit. With this in mind, Merri Poppins and I collaborated on this little number:

This is the  Nina Bonita  "Sweetheart" Dress, with detachable bow.

The bow adds a "pop" of interest, so you can pair it with a subtle print and accessorize lightly. If I could catch this toddler long enough to add a hair piece, I'd opt for a simple headband (or even settle for a "freshly brushed" look!).

Do you have a "Bow" girl in your family? How will she sport this trend in this year's family photos?
