Daily Obsesh - Multiwear Knit Bow Tie

We can't help but love an piece of clothing or accessory that has more than one way to wear it, even as kids we were drawn to clothing that could be worn either side out, or had interchangeable shoe laces, or could change colors when exposed to heat. Today, we still love a product that can be worn different ways. Call it more bang for your buck or call it an easy way to mix things up in your closet, either way, it's great. And if said product can change the entire style of an outfit? Even better.


Take the Fred Flare Knit Bow Tie, this cute knit bow comes in blue, black and red, is attached to a matching knit band and finished with an elastic cord for stretch. Wear it as a bracelet or headband for ultra-girly styling, or as a bow tie with a button-up blouse for a stolen-from-the-boys look. The looks couldn't be more opposite, and this great accessory makes either one a cinch. Speaking of a cinch? Why not adjust the elastic and get yourself a brand new knit bow belt? It would look just as cute around the crown of a hat, or as a special occasion collar for your favorite canine or feline friend. The possibilities really are endless, which is why we are smitten with this amazing Knit Bow Tie.

Doin' It Big With Oversized Bows!

When it comes to clothing and accessories, bows have long been seen as a symbol of femininity with their pretty loops and swirls looking decidedly girly and sweet. Bows have been used to adorn everything from shoes to shirts, helping give them a flirty and fun vibe. Lately though, bows haven't just been a side accessory, instead they're popping up large and in charge! Leave it to these crazy designers to take a simple classic and run with it, using big, solitary bows to add embellishment and interest to every type of garment and accessory, making pieces still feminine, but now also modern and sometimes edgy. When added to a classic pump, the shoe suddenly becomes sweet, but daring all at once. Or put a big bow on a simple, basic tee and make your once boring outfit into a trendy, hip ensemble. You could also seriously enhance your current outfits by investing in an oversized-bow belt. Click on the slideshow to see some of my favorite uses of the new big bow trend!

Bow Jewelry Inspired By The Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 Collection

I still can't get enough of bows which is why I gasped when I saw this beautiful bow detail on a couple dresses at the Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 Collection during Fashion Week. Recently, I've been eying this Tiffany's Gold Bow Necklace ($350 at Tiffany's). But more importantly, ever since I saw this @katespadeny tweet, I'm obessed with this Kate Spade All Wrapped Up Bow Ring ($75 at left) as well as the Kate Spade Moo River Bow Ring ($65). If you love silver, there's Alex Woo's Little Princess Bow Necklace ($158 at Bloomingdale's). For more fashion-forward goodies, check out Coquette!

Get All Wrapped Up In Bows This Winter!

The bow trend is nothing new. It's been girly and cute with Harajuku girls, ladylike a la Jackie O, and totally wacky with Lady Gaga. Clearly it's a trend that has legs. This winter, bows were placed high on headbands, low on shoes, and a little but of everywhere else -- and in most cases, the bigger the better. And these weren't your average cutesy bows-- think hardcore in your face tough bows! Bows aren't for everyone; I personally never been one to wear them (standing at 5'10", I'd look a little bit like an overgrown child). Yet there is something about bows that I just can't get enough of. A tough metal bow pin or ring is anything but cutesy, and pairing a classic bow front top like Pencey's Bow Tee with menswear trousers is the ultimate in boy meets girl glamour. The best example of the hardcore bow trend is the bank-breaking Balmain strong shoulder bow top-- even on sale it retails for over $2,000-- but a girl can dream, can€™t she? Check out the slideshow for ways to get wrapped up in bows.

Put Your Best Foot Forward This NYE In A Pair Of Satin Pumps!

Nothing says end-of-year cocktail party like a dazzling minidress, a glass of champagne, and a gorgeous pair of satin pumps! Usually reserved for weddings and other rather stuffy formal occasions, satin heels are becoming more and more party-appropriate with the help of trendy updates like platform soles, pleated details, and flirty ruffles. While the material lends itself to fancier holiday get-togethers, satin pumps are the perfect way to get festive without looking like a Christmas card or a gaudy New Year's Eve centerpiece. Just take caution when braving the elements on your way to the party -- there's nothing like soggy soiled satin to start off the new year on a sour note! View the slideshow for 10 satin shoes worth toasting to!

LimeLife Is Oohing And Ahhing Over Betsey Johnson Jewelry!

Whether or not you're a fan of Betsey Johnson's clothing line, I can almost guarantee you'll be a fan of her jewelry. Betsey Johnson's designs tend to be a little bit out there; people either love or hate them. While you're probably used to hearing "wild" and "crazy" in conjunction with Betsey's name, her jewelry is actually much more delicate (believe it or not!) than the rest of her designs and there's definitely something for everyone when it comes to the necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more. Plus, while Betsey Johnson's clothes might be out of many of our price ranges, her jewelry is pretty inexpensive. I'm especially a fan of the little mittens necklace (only $35!) and love that it's perfect for making winter time a little bit brighter. Check out our friends at LimeLife for more fun winter finds and finish writing your holiday wishlist!

Fashion Week London: Luella Bartley Spring 2010 Ready to Wear Collection

Luella Bartley recently presented her Spring 2010 Ready to Wear Collection at London Fashion Week. Her new collection goes dressier and less cheeky than we've come to expect from Bartley. It would be easy to imagine the late Jackie Kennedy wearing these pieces in 1965. Silhouettes were very feminine, with princess seams, pinched waists, and padded hips. She also showed several summer weight car coats in very ladylike "trapeze" shapes in happy, gorgeous colors, like a not-too-baby blue and a wonderful lipstick-y red. Other pieces included puffy dresses with velvet polka dots, sweetheart necklines, and Peter Pan collars. Bartley's recent collections have been far more precious with an abundance of frilly touches like dainty flower prints, ribbons, and tulle. By comparison, the latest collection is much more dressed up, despite the sugar pinks and lemon yellows. Even the one or two dresses with tulle trim appeared more sophisticated than one might expect from a designer who does things in an unapologetically girly way.
