is this a so very feminine year or what? not that i'm complaining, i'm enjoying the abundance both in fashion and interior design...of flowers, pretty colors, soft and sensual moods and utterly feminine focus.

elle magazine posted a trend report called heavenly bodies. funny because so much of this style mirrors the book i'm reading right now,"the birth of venus" which takes place in italy during the 15th century... the time when this art...now being depicted on clothing, belts, pocketbooks etc. was being painted, drawn and sculpted. (a link to the book i'm reading is on my sidebar, it's fabulous by the way)

i'm just swooning really over this style in fashion design right now and would love a chance to wear the first dress by burberry anywhere and for even a minute. how fabulous is that dress? what are your thoughts on this style of ultra feminine design, mixed up with a bit of history, art and sex appeal? is it for you? i think in bits and pieces i could certainly adorn myself with any and all of these items. enjoy...oh...and of course happy friday everyone! yeah!

p.s. don't forget to leave a comment for the give-away from all modern, which is the post below this one...good luck!
