Pussy-Bow

Pussy-bow (necktie) gets its name from a cat’s bow tie, it’s a classic style with a vintage vibe. The pussy-bow is a feminine version of a man’s tie. (Although, there was a time when men also wore them back in the 17th and 18th centuries.)

Very popular in the 50s and 60s, I remember my mom wearing blouses with a pussy-bow and she always looked so chic.

Even though I don’t own a blouse like hers, I like silky summer scarves that I can tie in a big bow to resemble this pretty look. I’m definitely on the lookout for a blouse with a pussy-bow, something I think every fashionista needs, right?

Do you have a pussy-bow blouse or have you tried wearing a scarf tied in a bow?

  2. Looks cool and nice where you are, and it fits you well.
    We are up to 40 Celsius in Ontario, dressing down as much as possible, wearing hardly anything right now.
    Summer is a great time to show off your style. I personally have been at home only for almost 2 years now, so there’s no need for anything.
    Hopefully, in the fall we will have some opportunity to get out or travel somewhere.
    Have a nice summer!

      Thank you for your kind words! That was a pleasant evening, which we’ve had a few times but it’s also been sweltering hot. I live in Ontario too! Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see. I try to make the best of each day and be thankful for good health!

      Happy summer!

  3. Hi Carmen ! The pussy bow is a real classic for sure! I really like how you styled your sheer ladybug scarf into one. I am sure your Mom looked lovely in her blouses . It would be nice to find a blouse with one , I wonder if there would be one on Etsy? I should try styling a scarf into a bow like you! Great photos and a really nice backdrop, have a nice weekend, Terri xo.

    I love the white with touches of red in the bow and your shoes. I use to wear pussy-bows in my 20s… Take care.
