Re-thinking Accessories

Not only do I own a collection of Chanel camellias, I also have ribbon. I'm set for the season.

Off, unexpectedly, to Paris, but didn't want to leave you without entertainment.

I have several Chanel camellias from back-in-the-day, but honestly this idea never occurred to me. I consider myself rather clever in the accessorizing department so you can imagine how excited I was to see a new option for my silk flowers.

Without being too, too graphic -- which I try to avoid in this space -- I'm pleased I possess more than two camellias. (Think about it. . .)

I'm off. Another ab--so-lute-ly gorgeous day. Crisp and sunny.

A demain mes trées, trés, trés chers amis. And, please, keep sending your pictures -- tishjett@yahoo.com

Merci.

And there I was all those years having trouble finding a perfect bathing suit top! A bunch of Chanel camelias, some safety pins and ribbons in that ever coveted CC logo and I'm set to go.
Saint Tropez better watch out!

Two camellias would be enough for me (thank heavens!)

Lost in Provence said...

Heeheehee. Glad you have enough for the "complete set", shall we say. Thanks for the giggle. It is suddenly freezing in Arles, so hopefully laughing will keep me warm!

Bon weekend and hope that you have a fabulous time in Paris!

Patti said...

I am off to work with a smile now (but sans camelias) : >

déjà pseu said...

Ha ha! Tish, you'll need to work on that enfant terrible facial expression though, to really complete the look...

Jacqueline said...

Thanks for my morning laugh! Bon Voyage!

Flower-bedecked bosoms? Adorable! (A tad chill-inducing for this time of year.)

Might I stick to my strings of pearls and the perfect scarf instead?

:)

Is she screaming because they are pinned on? Yikes, talk about suffering for fashion!!!

Now I know what to wear for my daughter's wedding.
Jealous, want to be in Paris right now!

Too funny Tish! Halloween is on the horizon and what a costume this would make.
I dare say I'd need a dozen gardenias.

Susan Tiner said...

That's hilarious. Have fun in Paris!

Hilarious, I think my husband would love the look lol... but I agree a bit chilly... cold front has hit the UK, frost yesterday morning. Sunny yesterday, but rained over night and grey and ugly today.

Laughing out loud here - what a unique way to accessorize. And then to read Hostess' comment - I almost choked. But I'd need more than just two myself.

Well, once again, you've just made my day!! How is it I never thought of this? :)'s

I have some artificial flowers from John Lewis, they will have to do!

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

This put a smile on my face which soon turned to a grimace when I imagined myself in a similar pose with the accompanying accessories. I would need the flowers from a whole camellia tree! Warm wishes.

Lynda said...

Too funny!! However, there's a world of difference between the model's body and my 61 year-old less-than-lithe one. Because of that, I'll pass on these for now. :)

Laughing my head off in here , all alone, my husband will be sure I have lost my mind.
Very funny ~ besitos, C

Well apparently you can never have too many camellias. I'm glad that you are ahead of the curve when it comes to accessorizing.
