Loving: Bow & Drape
My new motto when it comes to clothes is that less is more. I want to embrace the French attitude towards clothing: buy the best you can afford and wear it forever. I’m looking to invest in quality pieces that fit perfectly and will be with me for years to come. Enter Bow & Drape, a New York based clothing company that designs modern clothing based on classic fashion icons. Think Jackie, Diane, and Carrie in dress form. Pick your silhouette or basic piece, and then personalize! You can alter just about everything from hem, to sleeve, to fabric and adornments, this article of clothing will be designed with your personal touches. Check out some of their Fall Looks below.
Bow & Drape offers quality fabrics like silk, cotton brocade, and wool. You can customize further by adding sequins, buttons, and leather. They have very detailed sizing descriptions and you can even order an at home size kit for free. Finally, they offer a 100% refund if you really don’t like your garment (it has to be returned within 60 days with tags on, etc, but still a generous return policy for a customized piece of clothing!). I recently ordered a dress and one of the sweatshirts with a glittery “K”. (Hey, who says just because you’re trying to buy higher quality items they can’t be sweatshirts? You can take the girl out of college, but you can’t take the girl out of her PJs. The French would be so déçu by me right now.) I can’t wait for them to arrive and begin my collection of elegant, tailored clothing!
