The Bow on Top!

I have had issues with the "generic" gift bow ever since my years of hand-cranking them out on a machine for my father at his jewelry store when I was young. I would have been happy to never see one again until I spied a couple of Kate Spade's newest intros. These "Fiona" slipper shoes ($95) and "Bourgeois Bow" keyring ($50) are so cute and sassy in such bold colors. I love them. What a great way to have fun with such an everyday item, and a great gift for the holidays. I think Kate just helped me get over my bow issue!

I have those exact shoes/slippers! They were a total indulgence but I thought they would be so fun for our Christmas morning. (We have a big Christmas breakfast where we stay in our pj's) I rationalized that since I would only be wearing them indoors they would last forever!

I worked in a fine jewelry store many years ago and I know exactly what bow-maker you speak of. However, I LOVED making the bows! And after I took them off of the machine--FLUFFING them! Such fun!
