Pink and Brown - Very Girly

Pink cardigan (Plum), brown cotton lace-trimmed cami (Esprit), pink and brown embroidered skirt (RW & Co.), brown leather boots (Roberto Vianni), brown leather belt with flower buckle, silver filigree earrings.
When I was younger, I wanted to be Molly Ringwald. "Sixteen Candles", "The Breakfast Club", and of course, "Pretty in Pink". I have often thought that John Hughes should do a sequel to "Pretty in Pink" where Andy comes back to her town (she's a fashion designer in NYC) for her high school reunion. Ducky is there, and the James Spader character and the boring guy, whatsisname, that she falls in love with, and even Annie Potts' character. Is Harry Dean Stanton still alive to play her dad again?

Anyway, I'd go see it. I thought of it on the way to work today, knowing that I was YET AGAIN wearing the much-loathed pink. I do adore this skirt, though - it's so pouffy and I love the gauzy over-skirt and the embroidery and the ribbon on the side. It is pretty big on me (another one of my mid-point purchases), so I have to wear it really low on my hips. The cardigan is okay - the sleeves never stay up at my elbows the way I want them to.

Coloured my hair last night in preparation for tomorrow's hair cut.


  1. I think this skirt looks great -- not too big at all! But, hey, if you decide it really IS too big, I know someone *slightly larger than you ........

  2. It's yours if I decide to get rid of it.

  3. Great outfit, yet again! Love it.
