Little Poppy Bow Subscription: August 2017 Bows
My Little Poppy August bows have arrived! I thought last month’s bows couldn’t be topped. In July, subscribers received two hand-sewn fabric bows and one leather bow. This month is just as good! All three bows August bows are made from high quality specialty fabric. My theory is that Little Poppy really listens to their customers and they’re trying to keep us happy by giving us what we want. Before we dive into Little Poppy Co. August bows, let’s review how this bow subscription works. If you’re already familiar with how it works, you can skip down to my review of this month’s pretty bows.
An Introduction to Little Poppy Co.
When I found out about Little Poppy Co., I loved the subscription-based premise. Sign up and for $11/month ($15 with shipping) you receive three seasonal bows in the mail. The Little Poppy Co. August bows include one hand-sewn fabric bow and two simple linen bows.
I think a Little Poppy Co. subscription is perfect for anyone that’s a little bit obsessed with bows (like me). But I also think it’s an absolutely darling gift. I’d love to give a Little Poppy subscription at a baby shower or as a first birthday gift. And bows are a darling stocking stuffer at Christmas. They have several gift options in the shop. Can you tell it’s really not hard for me to justify buying bows?
Speaking of the shop, Little Poppy runs an exclusive shop for add-ons you can order on top of the regular subscription bows. Little Poppy announces their exclusive bows on Instagram, and they often sell out very quickly. This month they offered mini poppy bows in a handful of different colors. They also sell pigtail sets in the shop case you want two of each bow for an additional fee. NEW FOR SEPTEMBER: Now you can change your subscription so you get pigtail sets every month for an additional $6. This option sold out almost immediately this month, but I’m hoping to get on the list for October bows because I’m hoping there are some cute pigtails at our house soon.
Like most subscription boxes, the biggest downfall is that you’re not picking out what you’re paying for. Sometimes you get three bows you’ll use and love, sometimes you might only like one. The nice thing is that unlike many subscription services, you’ll get to see what the bows look like before they arrive through the monthly reveals on Instagram. After seeing those images, I love checking my mail for the new bows!
Little Poppy strives to please everyone by increasing the quality of their bows, offering a wide range of colors, and a mix of different bow styles. I’ve loved introducing new styles into my bow collection.
I am really happy with the fabrics that were selected for August bows. So let’s talk about my Little Poppy Co. August bows!
Pink Linen Bow
This basic baby pink linen bow is so classic and pretty. I’m excited to have this classic bow as an alligator clip because I think we’ve finally transitioned away from the elastic headbands.
The shape of both linen bows for August is the same shape Little Poppy used for felt bows in May and leather bows in April. Little Poppy calls this shape the classic. I like this shape best when it’s used as a single clip. Because they’re bigger bows, I personally think they could be overwhelming when used as a pigtail set.
Liberty of London Bow
I’ve definitely seen other bow shops charge a hefty price for premium Liberty of London fabric, so this bow is pretty much a steal. If you’re not familiar with Liberty, they are a British brand that’s famous for their unique floral prints.
This particular bow is hand-sewn and fairly large. The background is a slate blue. The print features while flowers with orange, citron, blue, and pink accents. It has a fun late-summer vibe and my daughter has an orange embroidered dress from Tea Collection that I think this bow will complement nicely.
I’m really looking forward to more Liberty of London from Little Poppy in the future!
Flax Linen Bow
This is definitely a high quality bow. It has a classic feel that would look beautiful in timeless family photographs. The fabric and shape are identical to the other linen bow in this month’s subscription, but I think I’ll get more use out of this pretty neutral. So far, I’ve been a fan of almost all of the neutral bows Little Poppy has sent since I subscribed, which would include June’s white ribbon bow and April’s gray leather one.
Little Poppy Co. August bows are all about high quality fabric and a timeless feel, including that specialty Liberty of London bow. I’m so excited to see what Little Poppy comes up with next! Maybe in September I will pick up something from the exclusive bow shop to show you!
