I am all about flowers in my hair lately. It must be an offshoot of my campaign for corsages. In the last few weeks I've sported a giant maroon dahlia, white garden roses and a cluster of nasturtiums with jasmine for various events.
Such an easy and inexpensive way to dress up an outfit for a party or night on the town. Very "new economy." For advanced maneuvers, channel Billie Holiday and Frida Kahlo.
It helps that they sell gardenia corsages for only $1.50 at the sidewalk flower stands downtown. They'll even wrap them in a delicate bubble of green tissue paper for you to take on the train. I think I'll get one tonight on my way home.
