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.

How many flowers live in your closet?
Have a beautiful day.
