When I read that Barbra Streisand's new album comes out on August 26th and she's going on tour at age 74, I just had to pay tribute. Not because I am such a fan of her music--I am in awe of her voice, just not her repertoire. But I am a huge fan of her: her fearlessness, her humor, her originality, her style.
Florals on a moody background -- favoring luxuriant colors from the same red palette we find in wine -- are gorgeous and wildly romantic. Some of us enjoy the mystery of brooding botanicals, while others exult in the striking prettiness of a garden on black.
