purely feminine

"Girl with a Pearl" - Dutch painting, Vermeer
Wrapped in layers of warmth, as the bitter cold continues to chill my soul, my mind creates a purely feminine spirit to shine forth in hopes for Springtime.   The "Girl with a Pearl" exudes patience and longing as I do for the love of Spring.  Spring renews my heart.

"FleurT" - Powder Pink silk baby-doll gown
I prepare by thinking of utterly pretty things to quicken my pulse.  My love for powdery pink slips, bows, pearls and femininity excites me with a furry.

"Fleur-t" ruffly robe
Locked in the clutches of old man Winter, I long for signs of things that are soft and pretty with graceful ruffly girlish desires, such as this pretty, ruffly robe. 

Vermeer's - Dutch painting, " love the warmth, the light and the golden curtain"
Just adding a pearl necklace to a winter day, can suddenly add light and radiate perfection.
Colors like jonquil, pale rose, lily white all hint of Spring.

Ruffles, Lingerie or pale pink undergarments add a certain "printemps" or graceful spring in your step.  Just wearing a powder pink panty will surely make a girl sit like a lady.

Simply bringing home a bouquet of pink adorned with a bow, will make one feel like a young bride, full of love, and anticipation for a happy ever after day.  Flowers, bows and some lovely music are sure to add a romantic air.  That said, there is nothing like a new lingerie treat for a bit of secret pleasure.

Gorgeous woman, gaining strength from her purely feminine posture~ full of love.
Now that I have caught your attention with all these pretties, stand tall, be proud of your purely feminine side to provide you with strength go forth and to brave another beautiful day, even if there is snow on the ground and no signs of spring outside.  Let your pearls and grace radiate and feel the love for your purely feminine side.  You are loved and you are worth it.
How do you get in touch with your femininity?

But of course, by wearing my pearls-I wear my earrings, given to me by my husband every day. And a strand of pearls with a crisp white shirt is almost uniform. Lovely post~ makes me want to put on my big girl panties and go deal with some snow. I am going to go read the posts by Pearls and Grace. Thank you~

Patricia I enjoyed this post of pearls and ruffles. I enjoy taking long bubble baths in the evening and bathing in body cream morning and night.

I am amazed and in awe of how each of us have a love for pearls and white shirts. Even with all the cold, the snow and the shoveling, feeling feminine gives strength.
Happy and safe shoveling!

Ah, a long soak in the tub sounds nice.

What could be prettier and more filled with the hope of spring than that exquisite bouquet of pink peonies with a silky bow? Beautiful! Maybe you would draw this delicious picture for all of us to enjoy!

I agree with your spring longing and need of pretty pinks and pearls! Lovely. I'm longing for that robe with ruffles - just looking at it makes me feel closer to spring.

Love your pink picks, they are gorgeous!

Oh Patricia I just adore Vermeer so I loved this post! It's always nice to wear something silky and sweet under our woolen winter garb!

When I clicked on the Belle Fleur link it brought me to a restaurant in California -- it must be different from the one you meant to link to?

I love those pink peonies! So pretty!

pve design said...

Oh, pardon me. I am a stickler for these things and I must not have double checked, Belle Fleur is located in the NY City.
Off to correct that. Thanks for spotting that error.

What a lovely post. I want to put on my pearls and go lingerie shopping right now! Love the Vermeer painting. They just capture the feminine spirit. To get it touch I fix my hair and do my eyes, put on a touch of lip gloss and smile.

Oh so beautiful! Pearls, lace, satin, and glam! I'm sitting up taller just looking at those pictures.

I don't appologize for being feminine, because I do have a lot of strength and determination. Pretty Lingerie. Soft sweaters, a new pair of earrings or bright scarf, trying a new shade of lipstick and a bit of glimmer....

Janet said...

Spring is coming, spring is coming, spring is coming. I swear. But, for today, it is here! Thank you.
