Think Pink


 I have been obsessed with the color pink lately, all shades of it really. And ever since I saw that picture from Fashion week of That Girl in the hot pink suit I knew I needed to find some perfectly Pink pieces.  Then one day out of the blue, at my local Anthropologie a woman returned this hot pink chiffon maxi skirt in my size. And yup, you guessed it I snatched it right up.

Camilla and I went shopping in Santa Monica this past Friday and stopped off at Zara for some great finds. 
Wearing her new eyelet cropped cami from Free People and denim shirt and jeans from Urban Outfitters.


We found this amazing pink dress and shoes. 
If you are wondering why Camilla is covered in band aids, it's because she took a tumble on her bike, her last week at school.

  Camilla ended up buying these perfect fitting hot pink pants.


And I found the pink blazer I had been looking for in a cotton pique fabric so it almost looks a bit vintage.


 I am also loving my new Navy Leather Jacket my husband picked up for me last weekend at the Alpine Stars sample sale


Sorry, but we had to end by putting up this video from the movie Funny Face.
It was a little too fitting for the post and Kay Thompson's character as the editor of a high fashion magazine was most obviously inspired by Diana Vreeland of Vogue.

Have a great week

that is what i love about a true stylish fashionista. she can wear something not all that expensive and makes it look like a million dollars. the dress is magnificent. it is hot pink, but the right pink. when people say pink you start to think about the wrong color, but oh no, this is perfect. love the combination with the shoes, it is not too much. but just perfect. love the video. great post girls.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply on my blog about the camera you use. I am actually new to blogging, since I usually write on one of those vintage typewriters in an attempt to keep it old school. However, this whole internet thing is pretty neat, and I'm finding the "backspace" button to be highly useful. Anyway, I've taken the liberty to follow your blog, as I'd like to understand the whole fashion scene better, and you seem to have quite a fashion sense. By the way, if you're a butterfly by day, what are you when the sun goes away?

Regards,
Alex
