friday flowers

This has been flying around pinterest this week...hard to believe it's five years since it featured in Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2007 collection.
It's made of silk and fresh flowers  -McQueen was quoted as saying, 'Things rot...I used flowers because they die. My mood was darkly romantic at the time.' Isn't it just beautiful?

It's the start of the Olympics today. I'd be more excited if everything from Tampax to Motor Oil wasn't branded with the flag, while small independents who try to celebrate by making donuts and cakes get shut down by the brand police. That said, the ceremony has been quite extraordinary, with a jolly good dose of British humour, thanks to the Queen, James Bond and Mr Bean. 

Unfortunately almost every nation has managed to make their athletes look like air hostesses!
