Bow-tie blouses aren't groundbreaking, but I've noticed a resurgence of them lately, particularly in 2009 Resort. As always, they're super ladylike, but now they're mating with oversized sequins, hip-hugging skirts, statement shoes, and rounded aviator sunnies. In other words, they've gotten a injection of cool.
This look from Bill Blass's Resort collection exudes this polished-cum-powerful vibe, complete with eye-catching Manolo Blahnik sandals. Make no mistake; this resort lady is no tramp but sure knows how to tramp all over you!
