Brave the Botanicals

Fashion as an industry is essentially based on the recycling of ideas. The old becomes new and the new becomes old .. fast! Spring is upon us and from where I sit florals are FABULOUS, the bolder the botanical the better as we all tend to our personal garment gardens (AKA CLOSETS). Weed out items from seasons past, pack up all your winter gear and brave some botanicals!!

Some of my FAV's from the 2012 season:

Amber Valletta shuts it down in this ad campaign. I LOVE anything metal mesh .. and with a floral print! AMAZING! Wonder if Donatella would dig into the archives to get me this top??? a girl can dream right.
