this post by coco+kelly appeared a while back……. wanted to share it anyway, cause it showcases the charm of red as an accent color so well.

and because those roses were arranged by magdalena’s flowers for pamela skaist levy’s atelier, a place where fashion magic happens…..

it can be quite challenging to wear a red dress or to hang out in a room with red wallpaper…….

red as an accent color is pretty perfect on the other hand…… think red lips or red nail polish on a woman dressed in black, browns, or an amazing green or turquoise…… this is the effect of red flowers on a room…….

i personally love to have red roses or red carnations for table decorations and parties.

so feminine, so strong, so look at me, i’m here to celebrate.

flowers should be like show girls

again and again i am inspired by dita von teese………. i’ve met her personally in december and was so impressed with her……. how can she be all glamorous and down to earth at the same time…… and soft spoken, accessible and smart as well……. AND she has three dachshunds and 4 cats.

for sure she is a woman to my liking. always inspired by her.  she writes “the showgirl sells magic”. and “decadence is the art of showmanship”. do those quotes remind you of my flowers?? i hope so, cause i want my flowers to be like showgirls…… sensual, classy, aware of their own beauty and generous……

which brings me to valentine’s……. my flowers will be like showgirls…… sensual and flawless……. there to be admired……. i’m not going to send out roses though….. contrary to popular belief those are NOT the flowers you want to send to your sweetheart. since the whole world is ordering them they tend to be like paper money during an inflation. poor quality, inflated prizes and no staying power.

go with show girly orchids instead. that’s what dita would recommend. and magdalena’s. they will take your and your loved one’s breath away.

see for mouthwatering examples.
