Every Sunday morning The SC reads The New York Times and my first luxury of the day is searching for the ‘Sunday Styles’ section to feast my eyes on Bill Cunningham’s ‘On The Street’ photo collage. This has been a ritual for many years and this Sunday’s edition did not disappoint. Mr. Cunningham focused on yellow and featured sunflowers; click here for his ‘On The Street’ slide show titled ‘In Flower.’ I was thrilled to see images of style icons Tziporah Salomon HERE and Iris Apfel HERE . I was immediately inspired and with yellow as my focus I reached for a vintage pale yellow cotton/silk Cerruti 1881 blouse, vintage pale yellow earrings and a vintage multicolored fabric bag, all purchased at estate sales, and walked with a friend to the farmers’ market just a few blocks away. Now this is about as casual as The SC gets! As I entered the market I immediately spotted sunflowers featured by a vendor, and knew that these beauties were destined to bloom in my living room. My Sunday morning experience was enhanced with the assistance and influence of a brilliant and creative photographer and the enchanting color yellow.
