OOTD: Pussy Bow

Mother knows best, right? I wore this ensemble out to Mother’s Day lunch on the weekend and I thought mum would just absolutely gag over this new blouse I bought online. When it arrived I wasn’t too ecstatic over the colour, somehow I thought it was more vibrant, but it’s right up her alley colour-wise and the pussy bow would just be the cherry on top. WELL! No sooner had I walked through the door when she told me she had a similar blouse (from the 80s of course), and let’s face it, it was a whole lot nicer than mine. I should’ve known that I got my love of all things pussy bows, maroon and long sleeved blouses from mum! Of course I nabbed hers and it will no doubt be a new staple in my winter wardrobe.

I wonder if I subconsciously was thinking about mum’s blouse while I was shopping for something with a pussy bow? I honestly don’t remember her ever wearing it which is strange! I got the idea like a lightning flash – I knew that it had to be red (ish) and have a long bow at the neck. Next time I get an idea and have a specific piece of clothing in mind I should go directly to mum’s wardrobe, although by now I’ve already stolen most of the great pieces, like this amazeballs coat. Or perhaps it’s time I go back to thrift shops for that retro feel I’m after? I just can’t stand the smell of mothballs and dust – anyone else get that?

  1. Very nice. I want to see your Mum’s one.
    I get what you are saying about thrift stores, but a good clean with the OMO and you are good to go 🙂 Luckily it is not a smell that persists 🙂 As long as what you are buying is washable I think you will be fine 🙂

  2. I can never go past a good pussy bow blouse dollface! There’s just something so girly and delightful about them. And I love that your mama had a matching one LOL! Chile some of my best outfits are teefed from the back of my mum’s closet. I just give them a good wash to get the musty smell out, and leave them to dry in the sun. Get into it xo

      • Right?! Why didn’t my mum keep the miniskirts and platforms for me? LOL I used to swoon over these white patent platforms she had in all these photos. They had white laces that tied all the way up her legs… Mummy recently told me that the laces were made of white masking tape #TooMuchFashion 😂😂😂

Now it's your turn...let me know what you think. I love reading your comments! :)
