I like to participate when I can, but it’s also Annual Nothing Blooms In Northern California Day, and I have only the memory of my wedding bouquet. Besides, all other arrangements pale in in my heart.
However, I do have some florals in the house. Sturdy Gals have to be careful with florals, as with polka dots, to avoid our Scylla and Charybdis of Cutsey and Dopey. Artsy Cousins can flower it up, as long as the the blooms are Indonesian. Moroccan, in a pinch. Grandes Dames, of course, own the genre.
But I can work up enthusiasm for Liberty of London.This shirt, bought in 2012 from J. Crew, remains a favorite.
Or multi-color popover, down from $159 to $99. Again, small sizes, and the final sale code of FUNSALE.
Or you know, some shoes, in a bunch of sizes.
Notice how I just dropped those in here as though they aren’t the cutest things ever? On sale for $129, and then take additional 40% off, down from $328.
However, while I happily acknowledge the genius that is Jenna Lyons, I think even she might concede to the Flower God. Erdem. His flowers are only dreams in my house. Witness this shift. Paillettes for extra credit. Was $5220. Now $1566, plus 20% additional off with the GIFTNOW code. As long as we’re counting.
Or this, for someone’s avant-garde wedding. No sale. Sorry. But do look at it up close for the sheer craft. $6,275.
Of course, he does make some slightly less stratospheric pieces. Nordstrom offers us a ponte shift, for $895. I didn’t say affordable, now did I? We’ll ignore the completely inappropriate shoe styling. There are times for brogues and this is not one of them.
Again, you will find Jane and her true flower cohort, here. And now, let’s do Monday.
