Flower power

Flower power

Just about every boutique in Nashville is carrying its own version of the retro-inspired flower pins and/or hair accessories. These en vogue adornments come in a range of colors, sizes, materials and prices. Go to Smack or Flavour for classic-looking corsages, Pangaea for colorful cheapies, bam♦boo for locally made buds, Studio 615 for bright blooms or Posh for edgier leather pieces. Wear them with everything from a summer-weight blazer and sun dresses to your plainest T-shirt. Pick your flowers now before the trend wilts.

Mary is my Homegirl tee

The Hollywood-based Teenage Millionaire was founded on a mix of DIY punk grit and California surfer idealism. Madonna, Demi Moore, Britney, Brad Pitt, Ashton Kutcher, The Coen Brothers and more have all been spotted in one of "Teeny Milly's" tongue-in-cheek T-shirts. The Wall Street Journal recently noted that the brand appeals to kitsch-loving Urban Outfitters acolytes as well as Christians who wear the shirts to display their faith. "Jesus is my Homeboy" shirts are also available (scary).
