Marianne: I can't say it.

You guys. I have an issue with...shirts of this style. Do you know what I'm talking about? Blouses that tie at the neck, so perfectly showcased in movies like 9 to 5? The style that rhymes with Shmussy Bow?

I can't say it! It mortifies me. My husband didn't even believe that was what it was called. What say you? Do you find the term Shmussy Bow embarrassing, or do you think I'm being childish? Wouldn't be the first time, is all I'm saying.

 
blouse: Banana Republic (outrageously priced, but remarkably similar here)
cardigan: LOFT
skirt: Gap (similar here)
boots: Frye Lisa (similar here

  6. Secretary blouse is a good compromise! I really don't like calling them that but I did use the term on my blog recently cause I wore a dress that I should have probably just termed "tie neck." haha

  7. Yes, "tie neck" is so much better. I refuse to use the other name. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

  8. I love this whole outfit, especially the blouse! Did you get it recently from BR or is it an older item?

  9. Why in the heck are they called Pussy Bow blouses? I really don't get it. I've had to wait two days until I had internet at home time to look this up instead of google-ing "pussy bow" at work to confirm this, and I'm so annoyed at the stupid moniker. Is this shopbop's fault?

  10. I am right there with you. There are only a handful of words in the English language that I refuse to say and that is one of them. No real reason. If the word must be said, then I spell it. Perhaps that makes me childish/ridiculous and I am okay with that.

    Found the blog from one of the Liebster awards and I am a new follower :)
