I was scrolling through the pages of NeimanMarcus.com and melted at the sight of the Valentino Bow-Topped Over-the-Knee Boot. Amidst the other over-the-knee varieties, this sleek import of Italy stood out by more than 21″ due to its beautiful showcasing of a large bow.
Now, I’ll be honest — I’m not really a bow type of girl. My ballet flats never had a dainty bow on the toe and my coats always buckle or button shut, never tie into a bow. But these Valentino boots have swayed my anti-bow sentiments. I now find an over-sized bow to be daringly fashionable and who doesn’t like to push the boundaries every once in awhile, right?
But with my inspiration over-the-knee boots pushing over $1,500, these blushing bowed beauties are a bit out of reach to the normal gal who has to pay her cell phone bill, rent, and metro card, at the very least. So instead of devising get rich quick schemes, I decided to go on a bountiful bow scavenger hunt! If we can’t have the bows of Valentino, we shall find our bows elsewhere! Here’s what I came up with — which one is your favorite?
