Rain(bows) Squared

Leandra Medine | December 16, 2011
So, rainbow-bows. I tried to create an exponent sized-two in that title but failed. Today in last minute gifts from or for the ladies you lurve: neon clips. They’re like a revolutionized, more new-millennium friendly version of the butterfly clip, or more aptly: the essence of 1998, an early foray into man repelling. The general reaction to the departed clips, typically worn holding back hair from the front of ones head, was “what are you, an alien?” Very antenna-chic. That won’t be the case with these though, which flee from Of a Kind. Maybe you remember the last time one of their bows tugged at my heart strings.This time, they come in a set of four, only forty sets were produced, and they are the shit a good hair party is made of. Wear them under a topknot, in some half up and half down confection or just, you know, strategically placed in different spots around the head. The next time someone asks what sorts of secrets your hair holds, take refuge in turning around and saying, “neon bowners, baby.”
 Or clip them to your shoes, why not?

    MR..I honestly can't keep reading this blog until you tell us a bit more about this engagement. I thought you were this crazy, single, 22 year old roaming around NYC in harem pants on the reg, and now I'm just so conflicted. It's like when you find out your work crush who you've been flirting with all year is actually banging a coworker. It hurts. I'd be way more accepting of this news if I just knew more. Who is he? Does he dress well? Is the ring classic or is it somehow a MR diamond? Why are you pretending you didn't just drop a huge bomb on your devoted readers?!

    $75 or, alternatively make some with pinking sheers and a sewing machine probably for under $5.

    These rain-bow-bows blow my bowels. Okaaaay that wasn't as good an alliteration as it sounded it my head – when it doubt, keep it in your damn brain.

    so fun, but quiet expensive for a plastic bow set. anyway it def is a way to repell the man. i love the motto of your blog, its such a fun and great idea and not taking fashion too seriously is something i really admire.

    I love those rain-bows! XD hahaha…
    They'd definitely stand out, and of course they're man-repelling! Hmm… I really need a boy friend right now, so should I still wear these? XD

    damnit I thought it was farfalle (why would I assume that on a fashion blog, I have no idea..I'm hungry..) and got excited. Cute bows though, it'd be a nice touch to a drab tote or random pocket.

    Those would be a great presents! I may try to DIY

    Things to watch out for – bow tie accessories that look too much like bow tie pasta…I may just love these.

    Now wondering what neon Ziti and Rigatoni accessories would look like.
