Please Take Care of My Orchid!
House-sitting an orchid over the holidays? Get into the spirit, with a little help from Jane’s Vanity. Let JV be your guide to orchid colors, filtered jungle light, and keeping out of the chill.
Day One: Show solidarity with your new roommate by wearing the Chelsea Garden Silk Babydoll from Gilda & Pearl. Its pale hyacinth pink sets a tropical mood, complemented by sheer embroidered cups of flowers and leaves. Provide your habitat with a canopy of matching Silk Robe, short and sweet with more embroidery at shoulder and sleeves.
Day Three: So far so good. The orchid loves your steam heat and hot wardrobe. Today you’re wearing layers of chartreuse, again from Gilda & Pearl. The Golden Hour Slip and accompanying Silk Top provide perfect togetherness for watching YouTube clips of famous flower shows.
Day Five: Time to water. That would be two ice cubes for the orchid, a frozen daiquiri for you. To ward off any shivers, just reach for Vannina Vesperini’s Fuchsia Boatneck Sweater.
Day Seven: Do a little holiday decorating together, in Christine Vancouver’s deep dark floral velvet loungewear. Begin with the Moonlight Velvet Gown, play around with choice of Moonlight Velvet Robe or Jacket. Swathe the orchid in the companionable Moonlight Chiffon Robe. Dust some tinsel on you-know-who.
All too soon, it is time to say goodbye. Soothe your soul in Christine Vancouver’s St. Tropez Silk Robe. Its splashy floral print wraps you in memories of sky blue, chartreuse, and coral.
Don’t be sad. Jane’s Vanity suggests: same time next year?
