We have a couple of vintage bottles on our dresser and always plan on using them as vases -- but we never remember to buy flowers. Then we heard about Belle Fleur's partnership with the CFDA's charity, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, and realized that placing an order with them would be a much easier way to get fresh flowers into our apartment. The New York based florists created a very fashionable, all-white bouquet that comes in a clouded blue, vintage-looking vase that we'd love on its own. The CFDA Couture Fleur Bouquet is pricey at $150, but 15% of the proceeds go toward finding a cure for the disease and delivery in Manhattan is free. And even though it's not hand-sewn in Paris, we'll still call it "couture" because... well... the CFDA gets to make its own rules. We hope the bouquet freshens up our messy room -- But if not, at least it goes along with the Spring '08 trend of massive, cool florals. --BRITT ABOUTALEB
