Thrifted Treasure: A Peek of P*ssy Bow

I am on a quest for better picture quality. I have a nice camera but I don't know how to use it. I thought I would try taking a picture outside to see if it makes a difference in clarity. Meh and the background is kind of tragic. The weather was sunny and mild though.

What I Wore

Blouse, sweater, and jeans are thrifted. I expressed my love of these Akira jeans in a previous post. Now they've faded a bit and don't look as nice *sad face*.

The p*ssy bow (must google the origin of name, why is it called a p*ssy bow?) is from the 90s just looking at the crazy pattern. I love the ruching at the waist. It cinches at the waist almost like a belt.

The cable knit sweater is Lauren by Ralph Lauren bought because of the deep purple color and it will make a good layering piece now that "the hawk" has arrived. Like a lot of tops, it doesn't cover the length of my long waist. Oh wells.

I had planned on snapping another pic and posting on something different. Something more fun but I'm still having connection issues so this is a stand in picture. If you're local you already know because of the lack of snow!

Proper undergarments are so important to an overall look.
A nursing tank is not a proper undergarment.
Any ideas on the p*ssy bow top? Anyone else having trouble getting out of the nursing tank? Are you seeing snow today?

Love the top! Those are so in right now. I had trouble getting out of the nursing tank with Moo, but since I was in the process of getting my figure back when I got pregnant with JJ, I had let most of mine roll and didn't buy anymore. And I wish we were seeing a little bit of snow.

A p*ssy bow?! I hate that word! I am sending all purple stuff I find your way!

No snow? Is it warm where you are? If so, can we visit?

Mama Violet said...

Thank you. Love the pattern missing in your post and of course I love the purple.

Mama Violet said...

I don't understand how it got that name. Does it look like a cat tail? I graciously accept all purple stuff!

What a nice put together outfit!! I've never heard of the p*ssy bow!!

Mama Violet said...

Thank you. I still haven't done my research on the origin of the word. :)

That's My Mama said...

You look great! So I was told that the p*ssy bow came from the British. It supposedly refers to the bows that they tie around their cats necks...Also, Im not sure what happened but I thought I was following you..apparently not lol...Now Following :)

Mama Violet said...

Thanks for clearing that up!

I'm following you too. You have some great finds.
