Flower Power

Have you entered our latest giveaway? You could walk away with two gorgeous travel pieces from The Brag Company!

After seeing a photo of style icon Chloe Sevigny steppin’ out at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin bedecked in a giant floral bloom, I was reminded how much I love the look of a corsage pin. I adored it when Carrie Bradshaw debuted her version for the first time on Sex and the City and that love has not faded. Who does the floral corsage better than the shop beloved by so many bloggers Emersonmade? Whether pinned to a cardy or a LBD, a large and in charge bloom just sings! Which one is your favorite? Personally, I’m drooling over the Poppy! It looks so sweet set against stripes. And I think I’ve made my amour for stripes perfectly clear!

    These are great! I especially love the second one on the belt. For my more hourglass shape it would accentuate my body in a good way!

    Local designer k.hendrix created a phenomenal flower for me and while I need no inspiration to pin it on, thank you for the inspiration to pin it on. It will be making an appearance this week.

    I am totally loving the navy one! Although I can’t help but think of the Friends episode where Phoebe covers a stain on her dress with that huge Christmas bow, when I see one attached to someone elses dress! Makes me smile every time 😉

    I love the flower and how each one of these ladies styled it so differently. My favourite is the poppy against the stripes as well. It’s definitely bold though… takes a lot of courage to pull it off as whimsical and cute instead of tacky!
