Sitting Pretty


Elizabeth Arden's Pretty fragrance has a pretty website to suit. And the delicate ruffles of tulle in this dress tap into many a woman's childhood ballerina fancies. I quite fancy myself lounging around on a chaise like this one, gazing into my handheld mirror, cushioned softly and sweetly by intoxicatingly fragrant peonies large enough to warrant the horticultural equivalent of steroid tests, while a butler who looks suspiciously like Hugh Jackman feeds me dark chocolate Cointreau truffles. OK, that last bit isn't in their ad. But it should be...

The fragrance is irresistible, charming and feminine, with a combination of floral, fruit and wood. The bottle was inspired by the shape of a bud vase. If you want to make the daydreaming process easier, you'll be sitting Pretty with this.

  1. The website is pretty as is the violet upholstered chair.
    Your Hugh Jackman fantasty is a hoot. He does seem to have it all: looks, talent and devotion to his family. Nice to know such men still exist and that would include your own Mr. Man I am sure!

  2. Cali ~ You guessed right, of course. {And if we had a butler's uniform, I'm sure hubby would oblige!}

  3. I don't wear perfume but found that website mighty pretty. And Hugh Jackman can feed me chocolate (or anything else he wants) anytime, anywhere.

  4. So funny. Just yesterday my daughter told be she wanted a butler/life guard that looked like Orlando Bloom.

  5. I do so love your drawings. Like the chaise longue idea too. I could lounge on the opposite one and we could talk pretty things for days.

  6. It would be hard to resist chocolate of any flavour hand fed by Hugh Jackman! Very pretty indeed as far as images go. You and Lynn - pea and pod, for sure.

  7. You do like the girly stuff, don't you? (Not that Hugh is girly. I'm referring to the flowers and pink things.) I think we ladies should all get together on a Venice gondola and have a Shell Sheree party.

  8. PCN ~ Why am I not surprised to hear that?! I threw Hugh in partly as an extra sweetener for you ladies who aren't so much into perfume.

    Margaret ~ Orlando Bloom, hmm. Yes, that works for me! I'll take him for a spin in my next daydreaming session.

    Lynn ~ Sounds like a lovely plan! I'll also stock up on some pastel coloured lollies because I think they'd fit in beautifully.

  9. MmeBenaut ~ And I'm also not surprised to hear you say that! ;) Any outfit would do, too.

    Petrea ~ It's funny ... I don't think of myself as an overly girly-girl but I really do love pretty things. And I can see our gondola now, festooned with garlands and muslin and fairy lights to twinkle when the sun starts to set. What an idea!

  13. I just love your drawings too. And the website is great. I think I'll go and check this perfume out, and if I can't resist buying it, I'll blame it on you Shell... LOL ;-)

  14. Bettina, I'll happily accept the blame if you treat yourself to something pretty. :)

Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
