Erica M. Blumenthal, writing for the New York Times Thursday Styles section, has declared that this is the year of the daisy:
“Expect a floral explosion as spring fashion starts to arrive in stores, and no flower is getting more love this season than the daisy. The relentlessly cheerful print, iconic in a grungy way (think a throwback Drew Barrymore), has already taken a high-fashion spin in the very 90s Saint Laurent repertoire, in cocktail dresses at Giambattista Valli and now in Dolce & Gabbana’s daisy-crazy spring-summer collection. In more–everyday wear, daisies also cover bags, footwear, tees and even jewelry. Think of them as the new polka dots, only sweeter.”
Because fashion repeats itself, I’ll be shopping my closet. I’ve got my Miu Miu daisy clogs from 2010.
A few months before I got those clogs, I wrote a post about growing your own vintage by shunning closet-purge rules. I’m glad I took my own advice. These are still in great condition even though I’ve worn them quite a bit.
I’ll have to make a point of wearing the clogs with my 18K gold and diamond Mia scent locket.
The locket and matching ring were inspired by the delicate beauty of Mia Farrow as Daisy in the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby.
The Mia locket ring modeled by Megan Knight. Inspired by Mia Farrow as Daisy in the Great Gatsby as well as Victorian scent lockets. 18K gold with diamonds and available at wendybrandes.com. #lovegold #poisonring #locketring #showmeyourrings #highjewelry #finejewelry #diamonds #gold #pretty #flowers #luxury #luxe #treasure #moviereferences
Do you think it will be too much if I wear my daisy sunglasses too?
Those are from 2013, the same year I spotted these daisy boots by Red Valentino. Damn, fashion repeats itself fast. Daisies seem to be on a three-year cycle. Never throw anything out!
The New York Times has another article that gave me Throwback Thursday vibes: a conversation with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics. It’s nice to see that Dave still gives good interviews and fierce poses. I interviewed Dave in 1994. (Click here to see scans of the original story.) Much to our amusement, we were kicked out of a hotel ladies’ room where we decided to do part of Dave’s photo shoot. It’s all good as long as you get written up in a local paper.
I’m pretty sure Dave wasn’t draped across the sinks, though. And, for sure, only one female guest peeked in and took offense at the fact that there was an iconic ’80s musician sharing the space with her. But you write whatever makes it sound more dramatic, Newsday!
Daisies are always in fashion. Your glasses are so fantastic and I know how many people compliment you on them! I covet your clogs.
