Spring florals, part 2

15

Apologies for the radio silence yesterday, ladies; life intervened. But I’m back today with a passel of florals, starting with this simply glorious button-down.

A comfy and roomy-looking robe with a sweet little print.

I like the embroidered flowers on this sweet gingham top.

And how cute is this happy little hoodie?

I like the single tier on this feminine dress, and the slightly oversized print.

And I dig the slightly Asian feel of the print on this Rag & Bone shirt.

The smocking at the neckline here is a nice touch.

I’m such a fan of yellow and grey together, and this cotton scarf from Ganni would be perfect for cool summer nights.

The slightly antique-y feel of this top appeals.

The deep neckline here is pretty, and this dress looks so nicely flowy.

The floral print here is so excellently graphic.

And finally: just a really polished and pretty dress.

15 Thoughts on Spring florals, part 2

    I thought Part 1 taught me I wasn’t a floral fan but apparently I just needed to wait for Part 2, which, unfortunately, also taught me that one must be tall to wear a proper (if expensive) hippie dress. Part 3?

      I had a floral sundress I wore and loved before I did the Big Chop on my dyed hair a few years back. A garment that looked good with brunette hair suddenly looked…interesting…with a silver pixie. I have not worn a floral since. I think maybe a large-scale print that looks more graphic than botanical might work though.

    I am so loving that Rag and Bone! I was also desirous of the daisy print hoodie until I saw the back, then no. But the last navy white small print is a dress I could get into and be happy (after I had it hemmed about a million inches!). Great selections!!

      Same page w/ Rag and Bone and the daisy hoodie. The hoodie back is bonkers. Trying to imagine what it would be like to feel the breeze on my bare, upper back, overlayed w/ a hood. I’ll bet if I was in my 20s, I would snap it right up though. Ah, youth!

        Same, Kimbersam––if I were in my 20’s the hoodie would already be in my drawer!

          I would have LOVED that hoodie as a young’un also… now it’s just in the “WHY” category, along with winter coats with 3/4 sleeves. Cute print though!

      Maybe it could be worn backward, with one’s head put through that big open space? And then one might just snip off those two little strings. It is a nice print. (For 250, somebody else try it first.) … … … Could any of these tall-people items be hemmed? I am sorry to see people going without!

        Viajera, hemming would invoke actually taking something to a tailor or seamstress and not just throwing it atop an already fairly large”to be hemmed/dry cleaned pile….(perhaps I just admitted more about myself than I should have….) And, even my 20-something self couldn’t have pulled the back of that hoodie off (again, revealing more about myself….)

          Ah, well, it sounds as if maybe I sounded like I was scolding people. Not at all my intention. I just wanted to mention it in case anyone forgot. It would be easy to chop off the bottom tiers of some of those. In no way though did I intend to cast aspersions on anyone, bc I agree, even schlepping to the drycleaner is kind of a pain. Where I live, the traffic is basically back. And, as a tacky person with really bad taste, I would’ve just left the hood inside out. (I don’t usually deploy them.) … … … I now wonder if I need a faux-wrap sweatshirt, bc that one looked kinda cool to me. I also thought the printed eyelet was different, and the sheer green one with smocking. But I am just full of hot air, bc IRL I am slowly working navy into my pile of black fabric.

        It’s hilarious that we are trying to make this work. The hood would have to be removed and re-attached because it would be facing down, not up. And the V would allow a pearl-clutching amount of boobage to be oogled. Plus as Eloise suggests, getting an item out the door to an actual tailor is really hard. Or it is for me, said the person who donated her “to be tailored” pile to Goodwill rather than deal with it.

          So gratifying to find that I’m not the only one who finds tailoring an insurmountable hurdle. And I always need it—my body is several different sizes top to bottom—but I’d rather fret and fuss about how nothing fits and spend untold sums on return shipping than deal with tailoring. Sigh

            I was at the cleaners, waiting in line to pick up my stuff. They have an onsite tailor who was working with another client. I thought, “oh one the jackets I am picking up really should be taken in ……(etc.)” And even then with the jacket in my hand and the tailor two feet away. I still could not make tailoring happen .

              I am literally sobbing in hilarity over the tailor being two feet away and still no go because that is sooooooo me. I wish I could blame my tailoring aversion on the Pandemic, but no…(sigh) My poor therapist…

    Oh, I love that last one. Navy blue, I can not resist you. Except when I need an XL for the boobs and it’s not an offering. Meanwhile I’m await deliveries from Florals Part 1. (I haven’t shopped much during the pandemic but post-Pfizer #1, I’m clicking through more. Hmmmm.)

    I ordered the red and pink dress. It is so beautiful in person – the colors are more vibrant and it has amazing details such as the beaded tassels. However, it runs big and is definitely for someone taller than 5’5″. I was so sad to send it back!
