I never envisioned myself to be a mama who put lots of bows in her daughter’s hair. That all changed, though, when to my surprise my baby was born with a headful of dark tresses. It didn’t take long before I was hooked. Then, I was doubly surprised when I actually liked the extra large bows and now Vivi never leaves the house without one. (They are really necessary at this point to keep the hair out of her eyes!) I keep getting questions about where they come from, so hopefully this will be helpful to those of you on the bow search. All of her grosgrain bows I have purchased at local boutiques, but those pictured above are very similar. My favorites are made with thicker grosgrain ribbon, and attached to alligator clips. Bows Alamode (#2 above) will let you choose whatever color you want, and as I’m sure you can tell from Vivi’s pictures, turquoise and aqua are my favorites. Somehow it seems to tone down the girly a bit, and it’s my favorite color, so I’m wearing it out until Vivi can declare her favorite. I’m also really loving the felt bows. They are extra sweet in the cold weather, and I love the structured look they give. Lulu’s felt clips have the contour/snappy clips on the back, which really work well if your baby has finer hair. Vivi’s is much thicker now, so the alligator clips seem to work best, like the Shay.Jay Love clips. Also, check out Abby’s Shop Lovelay store (#7). She gives hair accessories to little girls in the NICU at Vanderbilt Hospital – so sweet! Vivi has one of her clips, and it is really darling.
