A few months ago I bought this tiered bow dress and wore it out in NYC for Carly’s birthday dinner. I love taking the opportunity of being in New York to get a little dressed up and go out in the evening, even if it’s just for a date night with Thomas. We had plans of meeting for drinks at Cafe Clover followed by dinner at King (which is amazing!) and decided to walk over to the West Village beforehand to grab some snaps and catch the last bits of daylight. At the end of a long work day, pulling my hair back and putting on a pretty dress was just the thing I needed!
This is probably one of my favorite dresses I’ve ever bought from J.Crew. They’ve really been stepping up their dress game recently with this other bow one, this bow one and this polka dot one. The one I’m wearing recently went on sale for under $68 in both cream and navy and looks extra flattering when paired with a belt to accentuate the waist (which can get lost in the tiers if you’re not super tall, like me). I wear my Cuyana belts (I have both the black and natural) with so many different dresses and skirts. I love that they’re simple and understated.
I’ve found a handful of other black and white bow dresses online, all perfect for the upcoming party season, like this one, this one and this one that’s under $40. And as the weather gets cooler, I’m planning on bringing my leather jacket or a black coat to pair over.
