I am a traditionalist when it comes to floral arrangements. I yearn for arrangements of neat roses with beautiful big headed tea rose blooms, I do however like the modern twists lent to traditional flowers such as fashionable colour coordinating and chunky quality vases.
I warm to this great feel good, clean looking bouquet from Cherry Creek Custom Floral in Denver. I love the fashionable colour blocked pink and orange roses with just the right bold shades of green interleaved. This season's vibrant bold colours with a spa like therapeutic effect, especially from the orange, must be why it's called the Deep Emotions Bouquet.
This is the perfect bunch of blooms along with the vase. You can literally move it around the house taking on the role of dining room table centrepiece on white linens, dressing table side show and a kitchen enlivener.

This H&M shirt dress (above image) is a super skin flattering colour for summer, a wardrobe staple for everyday with tan leather and a holiday essential.
Spotting this could not have happened at a more opportune moment, I was loving and on the tip of buying the Rag & Bone Ohara Shirt Dress £263.77 / $415.00 (bottom image) when next in Colorado.
I bought the H&M dress online and await delivery, it was a bargain too, reduced from £29.99 to £14.99, the delivery charge is their standard £3.90, but I did get the added 10% off one item discount for signing up to their email newsletter, total £15.14.
Looking at the H&M Dress online I think I will have to tidy up the hem at the bottom of the dress but I do love the unfussy pockets, slinky silk like fabric, nice shoulder detail and casual but elegant sleeves. I have tan leather accessories ready to add to this dress.
Investment piece? Perhaps for one season - it may not last - more like a functional chic piece. It certainly will be worth the price paid as I can see it worn time and time again. A great style buy too as the V neck option (undo a few buttons) elongates the body for a slimmer taller silhouette.

I am beaming with excitement over the lux investment piece that is my paws, an M Missoni Crochet Halter Neck Dress. Beautiful colours suited to both summer and autumn, the signature classic zigzag knit, all balanced perfectly with the thinly striped bandeau and V halter - stunning for day to evening. And as always Missoni is an investment piece to treasure for many years to come.
The fit is outstanding (after tailoring the tops of the shoulders as this part was a bit too long, creating a slightly baggy look to the V halter) with a firm feel to the bandeau, an exact perfect cut to the V halter and the dress itself feels super soft and hangs beautifully. I feel very lucky to have this piece just at the correct time in the season and will be styling it for an outing at the weekend.
I just love Missoni, I can't wait to keep re-wearing my Missoni pieces again and again as they look so good and adapt to so may occasions of wear. A true investment piece.
