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.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
