Fashionable Friday : Vintage Violet and the Happiness Weed

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.  A purple weed foraged amongst foliage on my studio desk would not.  Most unfortunate.

Regardless of its rejection from the perfumer's arsenal, it is cheerful, humble and really rather lovely.  I'm sure the vase is at least half full.  And our thought for the day, even more so.  Always choose happiness.

Today's illustration rewinds us with a nod to vintage Dior and has me wondering where Agent Violet has got to.  So come, let us scoop up our skirts, sip medicinal brandy from our gold monogrammed hip flasks and ...oh.  Perhaps therein lies the problem.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. I was thinking...did I miss a day? But then I realized although it is Thursday where I am, it's already Friday in Australia.
    Happy "le weekend"!

    1. Haha!! Sorry, bella !! Well, by the time you read it, it was Friday here ... but I did publish on Thursday night our time. I'm so used to writing the posts ON Friday, I forgot I was early by the time I'd finished writing it and clicked Publish instead of Schedule. Oops. ;) Bon weekend when it rolls around for you and Diavolo! x0

  2. Perhaps Agent Violet is couped up in her Paris apartment along with Agent Hugh still recovering from the Chicken Incident......:)

  3. Debs surely must be right.

    The purple flower with the not-so-luscious scent reminds me of the jacaranda trees that line the streets of Pasadena. Beautiful trees, with lovely little lilac-colored blossoms, and when they're in bloom the streets look like they're lined with tall bouquets. But the smell is not so lovely.

    1. Indeed, Petrea ~ Debs's train of thought is a fetching one.

      We have jacarandas here, too. {Not in season just yet}. Gorgeous to look at but I haven't tried smelling them. Thank heavens I've not been dipping out on anything. Hugs to you and Wilma! x0

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