Sunshine, Daisies, Butter Mellow

“I love daisies…They’re so friendly. Don’t you think that daisies are the friendliest flowers?”

– “You’ve Got Mail”

I know this is a bit of stretch but please bear with me . . . There is this scene in the movie “You’ve Got Mail” when Tom Hanks ( or his character) realizes finally realizes  he’s in love with Meg Ryan. To make up for his past wrongdoings he brings her a bouquet of daisies to cheer her up when she is sick.  I’m not exactly sure why but Meg Ryans expression when she is gifted the flowers  always comes to my mind when I find clothing that makes me happy.

In fashion the idea of looking “chic” is eternally associated with the color black. Black is pretty much foolproof and guaranteed to make you look slimmer and more put-together. But maybe because I wasn’t allowed to wear black growing up  I am naturally predisposed buy things with color and patterns. Floral prints , embellishments, and all sorts of things that can easily look tacky make me smile.  Don’t you think floral print Prada heels are the friendliest shoes?
