About a year ago, I happened to see this Stella McCartney dress that Alexa Chung wore and basically just gasmed over it. I immediately bought some fabric for the bows and scoured every vintage/thrift store for a long white dress so I could make myself one, but realized, after finding a rather matronly frock that it would probably look better if I just stuck to a shirt covered in bows instead of going head to toe dressed up like a present.
I spent a couple hours experimenting with bow sizes, shapes, and placement before I finally got it right. Then this shirt stayed in my closet for almost a year.
I'm glad I am slowly busting gems like this this bow top and this white dress out now. Somehow it makes me feel less like a warden.
ps. I'm guest posting on Tiffany's blog, so if you wanna know 10 ridiculous things about me, head on over there now!
