Let's talk about my new pussy bow blouse! The other day I had a sudden urge to buy a bunch of blouses that have a nice flow and are more than likely too big for me. Sometimes I just want to be comfortable, but look like I care - know what I mean? Like, what could I wear that basically makes me feel like I'm wearing pajamas but still complies within work attire guidelines? When I spotted this blouse during a Target run, it fit my criteria. The rose hue is so sweet and the pussy bow element adds an air of sophistication that I love. So if you've never heard this term, and thought that this blog post was going to be about something completely different (and dirty), let's have a quick fashion history lesson. It's been around since the 1930's and called a "pussy bow" because it was reminiscent of a the bows under a cats chin. I'm not sure when the word pussy went from meaning "cat" to something else, but I've digressed. Publications such as Vogue have talked about the resurgence of the pussy bow as it can be seen all over the runways this year. While we love Vogue and high fashion fashion shows, those of us with champagne taste on a kool-aid budget can snatch this trend up at places like Target. From tops to dresses, they're a myriad of different options you can choose from.

I absolutely loved this look for work. I'm also really into these pants that are perfect for the office from Targets plus size line Ava and Viv. I can't believe that this is my first piece from the collection, I can't wait to pick up some more garments, now I'm obsessed.

Remember, even at work you should maintain your sense of personal style and express yourself. Have some fun with it!
