The Bitch Is Back In Town

In the immortal words of Elton John, the bitch is back in town.

Once again, life took over and my blogging hobbies were pushed aside while I tried to balance work, relationships, finances, travel, and general life chaos. Since I have learned to better manage the insanity of life and better balance my priorities, I have carved out a little extra time for this great adventure. This project is my treat to myself and hopefully something fun that we can indulge in together.

So…here we go…again.

Fashionably yours,

The Good Girl Who Went Broke

A Flowery Affair

Hello, again, fashionable friends!

Let’s get back into the blogging grind with some flowery fun…

Flowers have been on trend since, well, the first woman came into existence. Can’t you just imagine Eve with a garland of daises atop her perfectly placed tresses? Even now Princess Kate Middleton gracefully exits┬áthe hospital adorned in spring-inspired florals.

Although the floral trend is time tested and celebrity approved, there are some rules to donning herbaceous threads.

Rule #1 – Don’t overdo it.

Remember the pregnant Kim Kardashian and her rose garden disaster? Although I love the shape of the dress, she looks like a floating head in a sea of poorly placed rosettes. Instead, let’s look for something with a flattering shape and appropriately placed blooms (i.e. Eva Mendes).

Rule #2 – Florals aren’t just for the fancy.

Florals can be a great go-to for a feminine take on running errands. Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Mendes, Reese Witherspoon, and Jessica Alba use flowery frocks all the time to update an otherwise basic look. Here are a few fun examples:

Rule #3 – Keep the floral pasties UNDER a fabulous top.
