HAVE YOU GOT YOUR PUSSY BOW ON YET?


Hi Everyone
Phew, such a busy weekend has just flown by, and Monday I was at Scoop London (more about that later) Then an all day stay at the hospital with the other half, and I just don't know where the time went !. Someone get me a rewind gadget please!

I was at a press morning sat, a fashion show Saturday night, relaxed on Sunday (my legs felt like they were going to drop off!)

So I had this event to attend, and you know I had such a hard decision about what to wear. I didn't want to look too dressed up, and I didn't want to look like I hadn't made an effort!


   For a while now I have fancied one of these new pussy bow type blouses. Long sleeves, high neck, covering the right places for me (I hate my neck it's so wrinkly!)
I bought this one from Tu clothing at sainsbury's. Love the colour and the pattern. I teamed it with my favourite Primark trousers, very comfy for the bus journey into London. The weather was horrendous, and I got a near soaking!

I thought I would share with you some of the other "pussy bow" blouse's I have my eye on......


    This cream blouse is the same as the one I bought from Tu at Sainbury's I am tempted to buy it in the plain material because it can be worn with so much more. but I couldn't resist the patterned one that I bought. This one is £18.75 HERE 


   Love, love this beautiful teal coloured satin blouse, one of my favourite colours for aw/15 get this asap if you love it as much, this is going to be a sell out piece £35.00
 HERE  It comes in a lovely  truffle colour too.

  I have put this one into the post for those of you that don't like the tie right up to the neck idea. This one ties at the chest area. From MandCo £26.00 HERE  A great colour for Christmas too

Love the pattern on this one from New Look £19.99 A great price, and will go with all that lovely suede that's out there at the mo. See it HERE (in bigger print too! sorry)


Another cream one here, this time from Dorothy Perkins with a thinner tie and button front, so it can be worn tied up at the neck or lower if required £17.50 HERE


I saved what I think is the best till last. Definitely going on my wish list is this sumptuous silk blouse from Ghost. A beautiful truffle colour, and who doesn't like real silk? £89.00 HERE



Or this one from FandF in a gorgeous rust colour. I don't think the model is doing this blouse justice to be honest. I saw it at the FandF event HERE and it's much nicer than it looks. A bargain too at £16.00 Available in black as well HERE

So what do you think of the pussy bow blouse? It can be worn in many ways, with jeans,(flared or skinny) a pencil skirt , with leather and suede. It will really update any item.  maybe your ahead of me and already deposited one in your wardrobe? please let me know...


Cheers to you all!
 please don't look too close at my rain soaked hair! Will tell all about Scoop London in the next post

  3. Ooh that Ghost one! I agree, it is fabulous! I love the one you're wearing though - it's a great pattern. A pussy bow blouse isn't one I'd normally go for - but you've made me think differently! Great post and you look fab by the way! #BrilliantBlogPosts

  4. I absolutely love all of these. Maybe I should get my sister to pick one up before she comes from the UK in one week. And I just have to say that I laughed at "I didn't want to look too dressed up, and I didn't want to look like I hadn't made an effort!" This is the story of my life!!!! Thank you so much for linking this post to my linky #MidLifeLuv.

  6. Good Afternoon Laurie, What a shame you got caught in the rain.... looking at the photograph you would never tell.
    I loved pussy bow blouses first time around in the late 70's early 80's (yes I'm that old) and I love them still. Because I wore them way back when, both my daughters rememeber me wearing these blouses and loved them so much that they are wearing them now.
    As my mother, Phyllis, says "what goes around always comes around".
    It's lovely to meet you and I am going to sign up to follow your blog.
    Best Wishes to you.
    Daphne
