Remember the movie “The Devil Wears Prada?” I mostly enjoyed it (and had previously read the book), but thought they missed the point. My take? If you’re going to work in a highly coveted position in a highly competitive industry, you’d darn well better be passionate about it. Don’t look down on the people who are. The other thing that really bugged me was how sh*tty the main character’s friends were to her; they loved getting freebies but then dissed the job and her commitment to it. And then there was the far-too-prevalent meme, “women who are ambitious must pay a heavy price in their personal lives.” Harrumph. But Meryl Streep was brilliant of course as Miranda Priestly and I loved some of her lines, including…
I don’t often wear florals. I find very few that don’t skew twee on me, despite my attraction to them in general. A dark background helps, as does a more bold and graphic floral print like the one on this silk blouse. I’ve found that printed blouses can be an easy outfit-maker during warmer months, and add some interest under a jacket or cardigan on cooler days.
This outfit has a slight 70’s vibe, but doesn’t feel literal enough to be costume-y.
Speaking of 70’s, is anyone else watching “Vinyl” on HBO? It was such an interesting decade for music, and the music industry.
What’s your take on florals? For spring or otherwise… 😉
