hello yellow

Whether it's bows, butterflies, or berets, I love it when women adorn their heads with eye catching accouterments. As a kid, I was passionate about historical hairstyles, and scoured markets for decorative vintage combs and headpieces. At the moment, I'm enthralled with feathers, but bold details like this femme's cheerful bow will always make me stop and smile.

The femme in question also has a pretty sharp colour sense, the yellow bow would have just been lost in blonde hair. Gorgeous, though.
May I ask where in India you're planning to go next year?

whohu: what an owl says pretty much all the time.
That's word verification for you.

ummm, I love hair bows. i have recently started a re-collection (last time was grade 8) of vintage bows from Paris...some are giant...and they are so amazingly put together and if you wear something quite simple the bow becomes the main focus of the outfit...

How cute! My best friend is a redhead and takes to wearing a gold sparkly bow in her hair - it's precious!

mm, and it's a nice substitute for the over-done headband.

What a lovely femme; she wears the bow without even an inkling of hipster connotation.
And I see that you are visiting New York this summer, perhaps we'll run into each other?

I like the way the bow accentuates her profile.

I have had this strange desire recently to wear little hats and things in my hair, why is that?

am I connecting with some side of me I had no idea was there!
