Lapel Flower

For the Chuck Bass in your life, every dapper man should own a lapel flower. Charming and fashionable, the lapel flowers by Isaiah Hemmingway come in various colors and fabrics; they also create custom designs. The smaller lapel flower is great for a man who is iffy on wearing the eye-catching accessory since it isn’t as over powering as the larger flower. Pin it on a high end suit or on a casual blazer, this small and tasteful item goes a long way!

Accent With Flowers

After 17 years as a staple of Church Street, Accents With Flowers floral and gift shop (41 Church Street, Montclair, NJ, 07042) will close its doors after the new year.
