Yours till the Butter Flies!

I went to lunch with some friends today and as I was standing at the traffic lights waiting for the green man and some 'cool' kids crossed the road and this cute 'Mary-Kate Olsen' look-a-like was wearing this outrageous butterfly printed blouse and I thought to myself- Oh Kitty was SO right!

I'll explain...we were discussing what will be in this season and Kitty was reassuring me that butterfly prints were back in and I gave her the look of doubt (which I probably shouldn't have since she has been spot on with both the 'Tie-Dye' and the 'Sequin' trends!) Well, I eat my words they are totally back and I think I am going to go home and hunt for my old red muumuu which features a huge yellow butterfly! Gosh, I loved that dress....like when I was 16 years old and was channeling a Woodstock free-loving hippy! Apparently (according to some fashion trend website I was looking at) butterfly symbolizes love, transformation, beauty, hope, resurrection, elegance, and joy. The Star was the last year motive (really? I don't think I own anything with a star on it!) and in 2009, butterfly brings the new hope to fashion lines. Ha! What do you think? Obviously designers are loving it...maybe I will come around!


  1. Ha ha see I told you so!!!!!

  2. Motif...!

    A star motive adds a whole new meaning ;)
