From the beautiful to the beautifully absurd, flower motifs have long held a place of honor in the hearts of fashion designers....
 Meaningless fact:  When doing research for this post I looked about my house for examples of flowers in decor and I found exactly two....a pillow on my front porch and a tray in my kitchen.  Horrors!, and I call myself a woman.  Then I looked in my closet and I swear you can almost smell the flowers.  Flowers flowers everywhere, on dresses, blouses, lingerie, and jewelry.  I guess this means I get to keep my girl card.
 Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day, like writing a poem or saying a prayer.

 Wouldn't it be fun to have a giant flower pinned to your coat or to wear on your wrist like this.....

 Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.

One of my favorite pocketbooks, designed my Lulu Guiness.

 If the english language made sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with the shortage of flowers.

So subtle, it's hard to see that her top is made of mesh with small flowers.  I love that she seems so casual about wearing something so delicate and beautiful.

 Now I believe that lovers should be draped in flowers and laid entwined together on a bed of clover and left there to sleep, left there to dream of their happiness.

 Most of these hats were designed by Philip Treacy, and you know how I feel about him.

 Of course flowers have always been inspiring to bridal gown designers, not to mention to brides themselves.
How many flowers live in your closet?
Have a beautiful day.
