pussy bow blouse + striped skirt

Pink Pussy Bow Blouse & Striped Skirt I have to admit that I have not always been a fan of these pussy bow blouses.  To me, they seemed too “vintagey” and can appear dated. However, my beautiful friend and fashion blogger, Keren of Two Stylish Kays, convinced me that I should own at least one great pussy bow blouse.  It is this desire to make me love these blouses that made her give me this beautiful pink pussy bow blouse during a trip to San Diego.

Have you been convinced to try a new style or trend lately?
