A Pincushion Protea is not a subtle flower. Neither is this image. Subtle is lovely, but there are times when only a little Carmen Miranda will do.
I've never actually quoted Ms. Miranda before now, but this particular moment and image seems to call for it:
"I have never followed what people say it is 'fashionable'. I think that a woman must wear what fits her. That is why I created a style appropriate to my type and my artistical genre".
Word up, Carmen Protea!
