Few things are more sensual (in our opinion) than a pussy bow shirt because nothing says power dressing quite like owned up femininity. Because, yes, feminine does not mean weak, on the contrary. We’re strong as hell, whether we like a good ol’ pussy bow or a simple, oversized white shirt. This shirt is Vitka’s little sister, with the bow strings shorter for when you’re not feeling like overstated.
Psst, wanna know who Nancy Love was?
Nancy Harkness Love was a trailblazing WWII pilot and commander who was instrumental in the founding of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) of WWII, the first women in history trained to fly American military aircraft.
Nancy’s planning and persistence proved to her Army superiors that women could serve the Armed Forces during wartime. Her personal prowess in a succession of increasingly complex Army airplanes opened the way for the women ferry pilots who served under her. Women flew everything the Army built. Nancy believed women pilots should be handled the same as the male pilots—allowed simply to advance based on their flying abilities and not be segregated in a separate command. She and Jackie Cochran were diametrically opposed on this. Cochran wanted a separate women’s air corps established under a woman commander. Today, it is Nancy’s way that has taken root in the American military system, but establishing it took the better part of forty years.
Seventy-five years after learning to fly, Nancy Harkness Love was enshrined among aviation’s luminaries in the National Aviation Hall of Fame in Dayton, Ohio, on July 16, 2005. She was the ninth woman inducted. What she did enroute to the Hall of Fame is the stuff of mid-20th century American patriotism and resolve.
