{Mashup} Bows Galore!

Here’s a fashion trend that is making some strides, no pun intended, in footwear.  Its the classic bow.  Over the course of just a few short months, we have seen many shoe and hair designers add this femnine yet simple embellishment.  Since I’ve been living in and blogging my bow hairstyles, I decided to show off some of the bow shoes I have in inventory. 

The first pair is from Shiny Things.  A few days ago, I saw a “coming soon” sign at the store with a teaser pic.  This is what spurred this mashup.  I realized that this bow thing isn’t just a few of my favorite designers but a growing trend.  Another positive, the color (purple) was really the closest match for my pink jacket from Seu. Adding a classic heel to a fairly casual jeans and zip-up outfit can really add that soft feminine quality that I just love.

Second is the cutest pair that I have literally shared with my friends – who all now own a pair if not two.  This pair is from Kookie.  This designer is stealing the footwear scene with this adorable shoe.  It comes in a menagerie of colors.  Of course, I have most of them as they are all those muted gem tones, or ruby colors as I call them. This pair, just like the Shiny Things pair, works so well with a long woolly sweater and jeans.  Can’t get enough of the comfy classics for the fall season (that is if you live in the northern hemi).

Lastly and certainly not least is one of my funnest and funkiest pair of stilettos.  These are apart of the newest creations from the outrageously talented mind of Canimal.  When I first saw these on her flickr stream, I instantly needed, not wanted but needed, them.  They are so off from my usual typical shoe.  They have mini skulls but still have all the elements I adore. From the frilly edging to the bow, its a great shoe. 

With the Shiny Things and Canimal shoe, there is another trend – scripting color change.  With a simple click, the color can change. Its like owning a fat pack with just one shoe.  Canimal took this to the next level by allowing the change of the shoe pattern to removing the bow.  Each of the designers’ shoes are a welcomed addition to my wildly growing collection of bow’d shoes.  The only issues are: What shoes to wear and then what color bow.  What a dilemma!!

  • Oh I love texture changing shoes. I love most anything texture changing (hence why my stuff does it). I am so going to buy them just to support texture changes!!!

    I just like having 1 item do 10 things instead of 10 items in my inventory. Thanks for telling me, otherwise I’d have missed out!


  • Really what I have been looking for, I am going to send all of my friends here,good luck with your endeavors, your a genius.
