Wrap Front Bow Blouse – A Dramatic Statement

THE WRAP FRONT BOW BLOUSE THAT MADE MY HEART GO PITTER PATTER

I fell in love with a wrap front bow blouse with bubble sleeves and a boyish color! A reconstructed menswear design with feminine details.

I’m not very artistic by nature. I’m more of a logical, analytical, science loving person. Except for when it comes to clothes and shoes. I feel like fashion is my one avenue where I can express myself creatively. I have an appreciation for texture, color, form, complements and contrasts, evoking of archetypes and the use organic shapes to stimulate the mind and delight the eye.

So even though I try to invest in pieces that I will wear and enjoy on a daily basis, sometimes I am attracted to an extraordinary item that makes a statement. I buy that piece of clothing or accessory with brazen disregard for its practicality. I don’t care about how many wears I will get out of it. It speaks to that latent artistic aspect of my otherwise logical personality.

THE DETAILS:

This wrap front bow blouse is that kind of item for me. I saw it on a mannequin in a store and the sales person had to strip that mannequin to give me the last blouse the store had. At the time I didn’t think about why I liked it or when and where I would wear it. I just knew I had to have it. Analyzing it now, I love the feminine deep v-neck line of the wrap front, the oversized bow, and the dramatic bubble sleeves. It is reminiscent of the top part of a Victorian gown. But this front bow blouse is executed in blue poplin which is typically used for men’s button down shirts. Deconstructed (or reconstructed) menswear shirts are a huge trend right now and I have linked a number of them for you below.

Styling this head turning blouse with jeans makes it more casual and every day appropriate. I also promise to wear it out and not just in the house so stay tuned for real life pictures!

You can see a different way I wore these embroidered jeans here. I have to admit I like them much better paired with the Merona block heel sandals.

Be sure to check out the similar styles I have linked for you at the end of the post!
