In our grand tradition of being behind the curve, le Monsieur and I have been watching “The Borgias” for the first time, thanks to Netflix. There’s intrigue, murder, lust, power grabbing, some World Class Scenery Chewing (especially from Jeremy Irons), lust, but best of all there are beautiful interiors and sumptuous costumes. (And beautiful people…I’ve developed a little crush on François Arnaud, but sshhhh….)
Lately I’ve also been crushing on dark floral prints; they channel that same kind of early Renaissance opulence. While I love floral prints of all kinds from afar, they either tend to skew twee on me, or else make me feel like a piece of upholstered furniture. But just a touch of dark floral, in this case a scarf that I’ve been wearing almost nonstop…
is just the right mix of pretty and twisted.
I’m waiting to see if Lucrezia Borgia learns the art of poisoning. Heaven knows there’s enough of it going on in this series. If you want to feel like a Borgia, Wendy Brandes’ Borgia Poison Ring is just the thing.
Have you watched The Borgias? We’re still in Season 2, so no spoilers, please. 🙂 Do floral prints have a place in your wardrobe?
MORE DARK FLORALS…
