Darling Buds

The beauty gift that keeps giving, Siam Paragon again for the 14th Beauty Hall Celebration, and I was stunned by the tender colors, flowing fabrics, and most obviously HUGE hats of what I’ve been calling, “The Flower Girls”.

So Versatile

Even for a monochrome urbanite, like myself, the colors are gorgeous, with Make-up created by  Thamrongrat Wararak. Just Wow. 

Whether I’ll be floating at Ascot , or Venice’s Masquerade Ball or whatever next spring remains to be seen… But wouldn’t it be awesome to wear one of these creations just to, I don’t know, have tea with your girlfriends? No? Just the hat then with your favorite dark skinnies, slinky heels, a black vest and a tiny purse. I think so. Ladylike meets street scene. 

The Folly… The Elegance.

Wear The Biggest Flower on Your Head

Wear a chapeau like a ship’s sail if you like, just don’t go to the movies, not unless you have one of these models’ megawatt smiles for the row behind.

The Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date…
