MINKPINK Summertime Dress Sensation

  

August Sunshine





"Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air" - Ralph Waldo Emerson


August is here and the last days of summer are  upon the land with blistering heat and a myriad of travel plans to sunny paradise locations. Or last minute cocktail parties, date night and family reunions where a gorgeous piece is a must for the event or barbeque.  Thus the bright yellow orb in the sky demands fashionistas across the land to slip on a feminine floaty dress with a 50's vibe.  Recently, True Detective (2015) actress Rachel McAdams wore a beautiful frock from MINKPINK an Australian fashion brand.  I  adore the concoction draped on Ms. McAdams as she floated effortlessly down a street on a sun drenched day with a knowing smile, snappy sunglasses and gorgeous dress.

"We follow a pretty simple formula when we design,"  "We just ask ourselves 'what do we want to wear?' We've just always followed that philosophy because that's exactly how girls shop. Fashion isn't serious, shopping and getting dressed is supposed to be fun. We just wanted to create a brand that encapsulated that feeling." - Rachel Evans

 

 

Minkpink entered the fashion scene in 2005 for ladies looking for fresh designs with a twist of vintage in apparel. The quirky and eclectic pieces are fun and will not break the bank.  Created in Sydney, Australia by designer Rachel Evans the line became the top youth brand in just five years. This dress hits the mark for women of all ages.  The essential mix of pretty printed fabric and just enough skin to add a bit of mystery.  The lacy bra and wedges add to the ensemble though flats would also be extra charming.

Have a little fun this August, and dance in a flirty dress that is flattering on a stylish woman called you.  Happy sunshine, warm sands, cocktails and lovely breezes.   Ahh...the summer is the best time to reflect, smell the roses, read a book and basically bask in the beauty surrounding everything and everyone.

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Pops of Color

  Spring is Coming Pixabay Photo - No Attribution Required "Colors are the smiles of nature." Leigh Hunt I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.
