Flower Power

Channel Your Inner Carrie Bradshaw This Spring With Flower Pins!

Flowers are beautiful. There's no doubt about it- whether planted, or gifted, or worn, they're gorgeous. Flowers in fashion create an image of fantasy and whimsical daydreaming, and are beautifully feminine. Flowers first appeared in fashion during the 60's- the age of Flower Power and brightly dressed hippies- and we've loved them ever since! Although not as heavily seen in mainstream style after that period, they still show up every now and then.

In the late 90's, the flower returned in the wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw, but this time as a pin rather than a pattern. Carrie was, and still is, a major fashion icon, even though she's fictional. She accessorizes with flowers that she attaches to her clothes, which complete each outfit in a very Bradshaw-esque way, unique to only Carrie herself. In the 2008 film , Carrie exhibited her love of flowers more than ever during the first scene, wearing a gorgeous white dress with a shimmering gold flower on the shoulder.

This year, Banana Republic is also channeling a similar charm, incorporating flower pins in their Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The collection has a whimsical girly feeling, and uses floral accents to help convey it.

This Spring, we'll see floral inspirations everywhere, but this time they'll be 3-dimensional. The unique style of the flower will continue to spread as the season progresses, so wear a pin and make Carrie proud!
