Flowers for Inspiration

A good friend is getting married next week. Her color motif? Brown and orange, the colors of autumn. I wanted to get a dress in keeping with the motif, but I found a black dress instead that fit perfectly. And if you know me, you know how difficult it is to find a good fit for dresses, so I went ahead and snatched it. :)
Oh and was I excited about finding that dress! You know how they say that every woman must own at least one Little Black Dress (LBD)? Well, this is my first one EVER!
So because it’s black, I wanted to get an orange shawl with it but the boyfriend didn’t think nicely of that idea. I also want to get this pair of black earrings that I spotted at Forever21 some time back. The black earrings won’t add color, but I just want an excuse to get it, haha Smile I’m still trying to come up with other ideas to accessorize a bit to add some color and punch to my outfit. Flowers for a nice little brooch just came to mind and for further inspiration, I checked out this site for cheap flowers at Proflowers.
These colors in these two arrangements look so beautiful!
Violet is my favorite color and to see it mixed in on the second arrangement put a smile to my face. SmileThose orange/sunset lilies look so pretty don’t they? Maybe I can get some for my outfit? Or not. Winking smile
