The flower and willow world

The flower and willow world

Diana Vreeland used to say that every girl should have geisha training.
Too often wrongly assimilated to a high end “courtesan”, the geisha stands out as an icon of sophisticated femininity, demure elegance and dignity.
I find the halo of mystery conjured up by this poised and graceful figure fascinating and inspiring.

What do YOU think?

    I completely agree with you. &quot;Geisha&quot; and &quot;courtesan&quot; should never be mixed up.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3733110/la-by-diana-live-magazine&quot; rel="nofollow">LA By Diana Live Magazine</a>

    I love &quot;geishas&quot;. They are so beautiful and perfect, like dolls!

    Geishas are gorgeous, but they are you pointed out a very specific beauty associated with aspects of a profession (courtesan which is different!) which aren&#39;t always glamorous!<br /><br />xoxo,<br /><a href="http://www.chicncheapliving.com&quot; rel="nofollow">Chic &#39;n Cheap Living</a>
