The Power of the Poppy

Is it just us, or does merely looking at spring-like images bring hope that these dark, grey days are short lived?

They are shorter-lived than they may seem, by the way — 36 days until spring!

Until then, here are a few poppy options (poptions? anyone?) that are simultaneously cheering us up and making our credit cards sad.

Flight of the Bumblebee

I saw this Carolina Herrera dress in a Fashion Week recap last week and saved it because I thought the colors were so pretty.

Sadly, yellow is not my color. (Is yellow really anyone’s color that isn’t a runway model?) While I may not be replicating the above look any time soon, I think accessories and home decor in the same palette are equally appealing. I NEED the “Shut the Front Door” sign!Flight of the BumblebeeWhat do you think? Something different or too bumble-bee-esque?
