Flitting about in a floaty, romantic Liberty floral print is one thing. Flashing about in sparkling floral jewels is quite another. Talk about romance. . .
As promised, another way to buy into (and this time we're talking Major Investment as in re-mortgage the house investment).
Never mind, this is eye-candy and trust me: If you wish to find flowers in any of their myriad manifestations they're out there at every price point.
I've even delved deep into the far corners of my fashion brain to come up with a way we could wear the real thing -- as in plucked from the garden or purchased chez la fleuriste. But this is tricky. No way, no circumstances, no compromise could ever -- ever -- let us be seen in public or in private for that matter wearing a corsage. OK, that's settled. This is the only situation I can possibly see an opportunity for us: In the hair. No, not tucked behind an ear for heaven's sake unless you're invited to a themed event, but on a low-slung ponytail for example.
If you have any other appropriate -- operative word -- for flora body decoration ideas by all means don't be shy. Share.
From the top: Dior, complete with a butterfly; Vera Wang, works for brides of every age; crazy pivoine (peony, my favorite flower) ring from Van Cleef & Arpels (yet, not that crazy it's full of white, pink and yellow diamonds); sapphire and diamond earrings from Bulgari; a Chanel camellia (don't forget you can always find one in silk); earrings and a ring from the Cartier Orchidees Collection; another twist on the Chanel camellia; from Penny Preville, diamonds from another era; a simple, abstract, affordable silver flower from Tiffany and teensy ruby daisies by Ben Bridge.
