Happy Valentine’s Day!

So I’m back from surgery, with my swollen foot propped up nicely on two pillows. I’m fine now (thank you percoset!), but y’all, you should’ve seen me in the hospital pre surgery! I really turned on the dramatics–crying, asking for my Mom, threatening to leave–but in the end I calmed down. After all my pain, and sitting down at parties…


…I think I made the right decision!

So my newest Fashion Bomb intern, Lisa, was kind enough to step in for me today.

She reports on a hot Spring Trend seen all over the runways: Floral Prints.



Hey readers!

Newest Fashion Bomb intern Lisa checking in.

So even if we’re going to have to deal with a few more weeks of cold, at least your wardrobe can be in full bloom! The Spring 2008 runways were budding with new bouquets of vibrant florals that are a little bit retro, a whole lot sexy, and anything but boring.

Top Row: D & G, Valentino

Bottom Row: Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs

And of course celebs had to jump in on the trend!

Genevieve Jones does retro so well with a boho chic minidress at a Fashion Week after party for Alexander Wang….

At the premiere for Lipstick Jungle, Paula Garces is head to toe flower girl in hot pink…

Actress Ana Ortiz pairs a bright bouquet against a white silk shift at Fashion Week…

And model Roshumba Williams blooms in Bryant Park …


For homegrown flower power, try the following:

Now put a spring in your step!
Gotta love my interns y’all!
I’m going to resume my TV watching schedule. The upside to being out of commission is that I have all day to blog! Let’s see what I come up with:)
In the meantime, have amazing, fabulous Valentine’s days…and have a drink (or two) for me!
