How to Wear Pink - Spring 2015

 
 
 
 
 
 

50 Shades of - Pretty in Pink

 
The color pink is soft, romantic, whimsical, understanding, compassionate and lovely on all fashionistas.  Pink is gloriously in bushel of fragrant flowers or a multi-shaded sunrise and sunset and of course in apparel and accessories.  Even red heads can proudly impress in certain shades of timeless pretty and pink pieces in a wardrobe.  With Valentines Day around the corner, why not add this delicate hue to a wardrobe for date night or for a daily adventure and evoke 50 Shades of pink and love.

Valentines Day

"Love is the only thing on earth which does not go out of fashion"

I.   The Delightfully Pink & Vibrant Frock -  This number is beautifully crafted in a variety of shades of pink with a splash of orange.  Ted Baker London  is a global lifestyle brand.   Known for patterns, colors and everything British (think Downton Abbey), a sense of whimsical fun and superior attention to detail a fashion maven cannot go wrong owning a piece of Baker.   The back of this concoction has a zipper down the back.  For Valentines, a pair of pink heels would add a blimey brilliant finish to the ensemble.  And, for extra frivolity snap up this feminine skirt for Springtime!

If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.
