I have a slight obsession for boutonnieres/brooches and a huge collection back home. So when the lovely Gia, owner of the Fairytale Flower shop sent me this fabulous red flower boutonniere, I couldnt help it but wear my floral black dress and dance into the room. I dreamt of walking down the alleys of Paris, wearing a beret and my new brooch, while listening to Doris Day music. My love goes back in time when I was observing my mother dressing up. She would often wear a large brooch and her beloved red lipstick; a picture that will always be in my mind. This particular flower is a mixture of red, orange, fuschia and magenta petals and it can be also worn as a hairclip or have it attached to your bag! Red and black do a great contrast together and the beret has given a more Parisienne air to my whole look. If you need more inspiration visit here and here and stay tuned for a surprise giveaway!
