outfit details: black bows



Black bows around my neck and on my feet. I’m currently reading Great Expectations so, feeling a bit inspired by all the Dickensian characters, thought the button-up ruffle collar would be quite fitting.
Blouse: $4 op shop find
Shoes: old Tony Bianco

    The collar of the shirt is adorable, and it looks so cute with the bow! I can't believe you got it for $4, that's amazing, haha.

    Great find! That blouse is too cute. I love black bows though, they're so versatile.

      Thank you! I love the cover of the book, although some of the gold embossing is fading in places πŸ™

      I keep forgetting about them, so every time I come across them I'm like "oooh pretty". Lilac sounds so sweet!

    Adorable. I have such a soft spot for bows as well. I'm awful at tying them though πŸ™

    Great Expectations is one of my favourite books ever, I hope you're enjoying it! The ruffle on the collar is so cute (and very Dickensian) xx

    Great expectations, a failure.
    Collared top, however, an absolute winner.
