The Woman Who Wears It

The Woman Who Wears It 
Over the years I've learned that what's important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.     -Yves Saint Laurent I love wearing a "black floral" dress. It seems every year right around this time, I start pulling out my floral frocks, and the ones I love best have brightly blooming floral prints over a solid black background. I love the romance of it, the perfume of it- of feeling as if I were a fragrant bouquet; when I wear a black floral dress, I feel wonderfully womanly and wildly feminine.

I'm a big fan of the dress- it's a garment that can convey feminine comfort and confidence. I feel most myself in a dress, especially in a dress that allows movement, and poetry- and for me, no frock has more poetics than one blossoming with flowers. You can be sure that you'll be seeing me blooming madly this coming spring, in my growing collection of black floral dresses- willfully flirty and impetuously romantic.  I've picked some of my favorite internet finds to share with you, in case you're in the mood to bloom madly too.

A wonderful vintage version of black floral can be found over at Violet Folklore's Etsy shop, too. Here, red roses bloom madly on a black 1960s Joseph Magnin maxi dress.

Even better if you have a some black floral in your own closet. After all, it's less about the dress, than the woman who wears it.  The Woman Who Wears It Linking up to Patti and the gorgeously must-see ladies at Visible Monday.
