As the copy in the magazine says, “No need to go that far but there’s nothing wrong with a calculated strip in the right places. And on the right occasions, of course.”
Ahhhhh….you have to love a butt bow. I was rather surprised to see a butt bow on a Sixties Mary Quant mini dress, but surprised in a good ‘oooh, the girl done good’ kinda way. It’s an adorable dress anyway (and perfect attire for a mod french maid) but that’s just the icing on the cake; the bow on the butt. Anyway, it’s a new listing over at Vintage-a-Peel – please do check it out!

Like the fabulous WendyB, I’m a big fan of the butt bow. Frankly I’m a fan of any decoration on the butt. When you’re a petite lady up top, and you quite like your butt, you know it makes sense to draw attention down there. This is why I love Sarah Whitworth (Queen of the Buffle) so much.
Anyway, a few weeks back I was stopped in my tracks by this incredible dress in the window of the Maria Grachvogel shop. I’m quite a fan of MG which, considering my usual antipathy towards modern designers, is quite an achievement for her*.
