    There is nothing like flowers to perk up a dreary house on a winter’s day. Sadly, there are none in the Prepatorium! I like your alternatives, especially the Liberty pieces: vibrant without being twee. Erdem is a dream here also, I’ve seen a certain Duchess wearing his pieces very well.

    Sending you a smile for the new week,

    Those shoes are absolutely darling! I am careful with florals – with my height (and lately my width since my holiday gluttony has taken its toll) they need to be small prints like the first two blouses you show.

    Off to see if those sandals come in my size!

    I like the brogues. They give me hope that I might dare to wear a dress again.

    Your bouquet was fabulous!
    I shy away from florals but make an exception for Liberty prints….that Erdem dress could have been on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last night!

    I love those sandals. Now that’s a floral I would wear!

    Gorgeous flowers. I tend to like the idea of florals more than the actual wearing of them, but liberty shirts fit my style, and I love to dream about a special Erdem dress, luckily destined to remain in my fantasy life.

    Amazing wedding bouquet, and by Saipua–wow.

    I love the peasant blouse, alas I am bigger than small.

    The shift dress is just stunning – I love Ted Baker for florals too – so happy I can now buy some of the collection here in Atlanta!

    I knew your 2012 shirt was Liberty of London the moment I spotted it. Darling. And the wedding dress you’ve shown here is absolutely gorgeous.

    oooh, I’m loving those Liberty prints.

    And, that bouquet of yours is just exquisite, really where can you ever go from there, I agree! x

    I know other flowers, other bouquets are gorgeous too. So many talented florists. But this one, for me, was it.

    At first I really loved the pink floral from J. Crew but then the non-wedding dressed peeked through the horizon and boy is that a work of art? Wow. But hands down the wedding bouquet takes the prize.

    Your bouquet is stunning, so lovely. It leaves the clothes in the shade.

    Your references to J. Crew brings up something I’ve been wondering about for some time, hope you don’t mind my asking. I’m trying to figure out why so many bloggers love J. Crew so much, especially since I also read a lot of comments about poor quality. Maybe it’s because I’m in Canada and have no history with them. Could you help me to get this? Maybe a comparison to other retailers might help me ‘place’ them?

    Good question. Do you have Anthropologie? They are perhaps in that range, but more polished? Or else just below the standalone Red by Valentino stores? They do occupy a niche of their own, because their colors and fabrics are so appealing. What retailers are you familiar with, then I could maybe do a better job?

    I love dresses for the summer with small floral prints. I have one or two and have ordered another one, as they seem timeless. Erdem makes such gorgeous dresses….and your bouquet is stunning.

    I’d say the sandals. They are the cutest shoes ever. Wonder whether I can sport them (hummm!!!)

    I have two degrees in English and still had to look up ‘Paillettes’ – probably because it’s French :) I pretty much hate florals but that black pailletted one would be welcome in my closet!

    I just love your blog, Sturdy Gal. And your bouquet: magnifique!

    Your bouquet is the absolute best! Love it. I also love those long dresses. I find with my grey hair that prints just don’t work. I can get away with some stripes but florals and such just?????? Solids I guess for a solid lady.
