Default Re: Ribbons and bows

I agree that ribbons and bows make lovely hair accessories. It would be wonderful to see them return in a big way. I can imagine talented designers giving them a novel spin, just as other timeless styles, like peasant blouses, have been reinterpreted via the New Feminininty in fashion.

It's amazing how pretty all of the ladies in these vintage paintings and postcards look. They have lovely eyes and long beautiful hair of course, but what really distinguishes them from today's supposed icons of attractiveness is that these women look well-nourished.
