Pretty Little Bows

Since I was a little girl,
I have always had a fascination with pretty little bows...
like the bows I had on my patent leather shoes

Eventually though,
bows seemed to be a bit too girly for me and
my appreciation for the bow dwindled to the tiny little leather bows on my favourite red patent ballet flats...you can see them here if you really want to :)

But...lately my love for bows reignited when I saw this bag by bloomi from Paris.
This bag which combines a beautiful bow against a black polka dot material....
a win-win scenario for me..... bows and dots!

And of course if the first one is too big then I am equally swooning over this smaller version.
A perfect night out on the town bag.... don't you think?

And hey....
it may even push us to have more nights out on the town.
Yet, another win-win situation!

Okay, full stop, please be assured that I have no "in" with bloomi.
This is not a paid advertisement of any sort....

But, it just happens that this Parisian line of bags and accessories will be available at the
Salon des métier d'art (artisans show) which takes place from July 30th to August 11th in the old port of Québec.
It is a fabulous show and I do love to go but it is always a treat to know well in advance what artisans will be present.


And this artisan will be at the top of my list.
They are so fresh and out of the norm from what I am seeing around here. 

And this is my favourite shape for a bag.
Not too big, but big enough... do you know what I mean?

Salon des métier d'art
Bags, purses, satchels...whatever your style, they are so personal.
What do you think?
Do you have a favourite style?
Oh and if you love florals, well bloomi has got your number.


  1. Those are beautiful bags! I think the shape is great too. The ones with the bows are so pretty & lady like.

  2. I love the first one! It is so cute. My favorite type of purse is the classic Kelley bag!


  3. Cute Bags of all sizes. Thanks for sharing Donna!

  4. Gorgeous bags! Love the flowered ones. That would be a beautiful show to attend. Have fun. Share with us what you purchase. :)

  5. I don't know about polka dots or bows being an obsession for me nice but not compelled ...but bags of all sorts definitely are... oh my goodness I love anything that is a sac, satchel, clutch, beach, purse, knapsack and on and on and on........Once I told my husband that I loved a bag that we saw in the store and his response was that I have never seen a bag I didn't love...lol Thanks for sharing ....I wonder if bloomi would ever be in my area... will definitely check it out.

    1. I am not sure of where you are writing from but there is an Etsy store. If you click on an image it will take you to her shop. I love the idea of buying something that is truly made by an individual and not mass-produced across the ocean.

  6. If I buy one more purse someone will have to stage an intervention. For everyday use, I want a shoulder bag but that little number with the bow would be sweet for a night on the town!


You can leave a comment....totally up to you....Yep, I do love it when you do!
