All Things Bow ‘N Beautiful.

The idea for this post came to me when I fell upon this amazing purse that was in the shape of one huge bow. It was the cutest thing ever. A few hours later I came across a stunning pair of wedge heels whose shape was bow inspired. That got me thinking, how many things is it possible to find in bow shape? I gave myself a huge challenge to find all things bow and beautiful. You will not believe the things I have found on this quest. Gone are the days when bow shapes were made for kids. Now this shape is a major silhoutte and inspiration for most designers out there. Ready to see what I found? Yea? I thought as much. Let’s bow!

For starters, grey colour pallets often translate class and formal occasions. so if you are going to go for a grey dominated outfit make sure it’s looking as classy as can can be. Of course adding your personal touch is essential. Grey works best in three ways. You can either go grey all the way, mix several grey tones or mix grey with brighter tones. Visualize this.

Random Star Sightings: Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Zahia Dehar

Lady Gaga buys a hot dog.

While grabbing a hot dog could be the most irrelevant piece of news yet to be reported, it is what the hot dog grabber is wearing that actually catches my eye. Lady Gaga never fails to surprise. She is spotted wearing giant stilts that send her towering above everyone else. the ginormous gold skirt and midriff baring is only fitting for the ethereal giantess look that she seems to be aiming for.
