and she wore violet......

I'm seeing violets everywhere!!! Too bad I didn't see these dresses before I purchased mine. I was looking for something a bit more off beat (and something that I could wear again) and was even contemplating wearing color. I would take any of these!!!
Yves Saint Laurent and Carolina Herrera were inspired by the little velvet flower for their collections. Stefano Pilati of YSL said he had been inspired by "violets, which to the Greeks symbolized modesty, humility, and virginity—and the feeling of transition from spring into summer." For his show he laid out a runway of a deep, earthen lawn planted with hundreds of living purple violas. Imagine having an aisle of violets to walk down, how romantic.........a girl can dream, can't she?

Thought I would share this sweet little rose bud. This morning my adorable fiance, picked it for me from the garden. So chic yet so simple displayed in one of my many recycled glass jars..... I've literally been ooooing and aaaahing about it all day long (he is the sweetest)
