WELCOME………I know a lot of you did not receive MY LAST POST.I am NO HELP there as I did not either……………but if you missed it you may scroll to the bottom of this POST and go back to AN OLDER POST which if YOU know me is worth viewing!The Post is called THE VINTAGE CONTESSA.NET.I do hope it was just a SNAFU.
This Post is about FLOWERS & FASHION and our GO TO OUTFIT for SPRING.
Topic by that DIVINE WOMAN in HOUSTON named MARSHA for the BY INVITATION ONLY SERIES…………shall we step into SPRING in my new little ballerina pink ankle boot!
I do NOT have a GO -TO OUTFIT for SPRING as I give no thought to what I wear until I step into my closet.I do sport a HAT on occasion………or a FESTIVITY CROWN.I do wear CAFTANS and long dresses…….linen pants with long flowing tops.
Penelope and Me on our way to the BIRTHDAY LUNCHEON in our FESTIVITY CROWNS.
SUMMERLAND BEACH,CALIFORNIA.Transitioning into SPRING………………..
TEA FOR TWO….EDWARDIAN HAT available for purchase at THE REMNANTS of the PAST SHOW in APRIL.I forget how much but it’s NOT CHEAP!Tis tucked away in a box in my storage.If you are interested just send me an email……email@example.com.
TULIP TREE in FULL GLORY.Me trying to be a TULIP!
I am standing in a coat I had made out of VINTAGE curtains!This fabric was just TOO good to be cut up for pillows!
Note that deep big pocket for collecting fresh eggs from OUR chicken coop!
Here we have MARY LYN a TRUE SOUTHERN BELLE featuring a KATHERINE HEPBURN type hat that will make its debut at the REMNANTS OF THE PAST SHOW in my booth this APRIL.The price of the hat is $45.00.
MARY LYN, is tucked under my FIRST flowering CLEMATIS of the season …………the fragrance is intoxicating.A little bit about this SOUTHERN BELLE, she hails from TENNESSEE and is keen on moving to CALIFORNIA.
TRIVIA FACT:Her sister dates JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE’s brother!They all went to school TOGETHER!
My model here is a GORGEOUS SOUTHERN BELLE named JiLL who comes highly recommended from the FULBRIGHT scholarship foundation.She is wearing HER GO TO OUTFIT for SPRING with a denim jacket…crowned by a DAISY HEADDRESS.Denim is BIG this YEAR……..in case you are OUT of the LOOP!
We were a little too soon to catch the cascading roses that will cover this swinging bench.Who needs FLOWERS when you have YOUTH,long gowns,denim and CROWNS OF DAISIES.Did I mention these lovelies are staying with me!!!
Flowers are BIG and TASSELS too if you are a FASHION BESOTTED PERSON…..
The PARIS fashion shows are showing lots of FLOWERS around the neck and decolletage.TASSELS ABOUND as earrings and embellishments adorn some of the Ready – to- Wear…….I wouldn’t have a problem with that………..my only problem is where do I wear something like that in my daily doings?Then again I do not have a problem wearing an OPERA COAT to the grocery store.
Here I am in my NEW T-SHIRT by FANNY KARST for ADVANCED STYLE.Pom-Pom earrings and a HAT to adorn.Spring is on it’s way and long dresses and long skirts are my key essentials.The legs are not what they use to be and I find it is an elegant yet comfortable way to go about my daily routines.Always a FLAT SHOE.Always a LIPSTICK and more often than NOT BRACELETS ride the movements of my sleek forearm!
