Always topped off with a bow

Let’s all face it, I love bows. My bows are so special to me. When I don’t wear a bow, I feel like something is missing . . . But I really never have to worry about that, because I wear bows every day. In total I have almost 60 bows.

Everybody should wear bows because I feel they just complement your whole outfit. If you wear your hair in a ponytail a lot like me, bows don’t just look pretty in the back. You can buy or make some bows that have hair ties that are connected to them so they pull your hair back, too.

The good thing about bows is that they come in all different sizes. If you have short, thin hair, you can get small bows. If you have long hair, you can get big bows.

How did I get into collecting bows? It all started when I would just always leave my hair down plain. Then I wore headbands every day, and not so long after that, I got my first bow. I just started wearing them day after day and collecting new ones with a different size and patterns from the last. For example, I have cheerleading bows, New York Rangers hockey bows, and black shimmery bows. I even have a bow with bows on it.

Bows are a great accessory and match with any outfit from casual to top-notch formal.
