Today's new thing is the pink cardigan.
Yup, that's pink, my most-hated colour. To be fair, not all pink is bad, and this is one of the few shades of it I can wear.
I was so chuffed to get such a great bargain on this; it's 100% angora, and it still had the original price tags on it. Since it doesn't show any evidence of mark-downs (I'm very familiar with the Esprit store mark-down system), I conclude that someone got this for Christmas a couple of years ago. I remember this being in the store then.
Check this out: you can still see the original price:
That says $99.50. And what did I get it for? $27. Woot! Bargain!
I decided to play up the black and white with the pink and did my lovely Fluevogs. I wrapped the pearl necklace around my wrist to make a bracelet and wore my Betty Rubble bigass pearl studs.
Dress (Do & Be), cardigan (Esprit, consignment), belt (Nygard), shoes (Fluevog "Listen: Harlow"), necklace (late 80s, Eatons), earrings (Aldo Accessories).
Ok I love the color on you! Can I have those shoes???ReplyDelete
Pretty! I like pink on a redhead; my teenage admiration of Molly Ringwald has never quite faded, I guess. :)ReplyDelete
I like it, the pink adds a little pizzazz.ReplyDelete
i love the look of this outfit! fabulous shoes too!ReplyDelete
Took me forever to realize that not all pink is evil - this shade looks great on you!ReplyDelete
I love those shoes.... fluevog.... fluevog... i like saying that name.ReplyDelete
What a deal! Love those shoes of course...I'm sure I say that every time hahaReplyDelete
I agree with Kristin - the right shade of pink looks so lovely on redheads. And you have got it nailed here. I love the whole look, all the way down to the "I want to steal them" shoes.ReplyDelete
Very pretty finds, and those shoes are fantastic!ReplyDelete
There is something very 50's-ish about the outfit...the polka dots, the cardi, the pearls...love it all! And I think that shade of pink looks lovely on you!ReplyDelete
Lovely! I agree with you on pink. But, have been doing my best to embrace the pinks that look good on me. Love the Fluevogs!ReplyDelete
Awesome find! Can't wait to see the rest of the goodies you got.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Hillary! No, mine, back off, lady. ;)ReplyDelete
Kristen, thanks - of course I wanted to be Molly when I was a teenager.
Eednic, thank you!
Sal - I agree. My mom used to dress me in pink all the time when I was a kid and I just loathed it. Now...not so bad if it's the right shade.
Lorena, it's a magic name. If only saying it made more appear!
Thanks, Kaylyn. Yes, but they are amazingly awesome shoes.
I agree, Tina - I'm not a redhead (I just pretend to be one). Thanks so much!
watergirl, you got it! I am just loving the 50s look right now. Thank you very much!
Alison, thanks! I've finally realized that I need a *little* pink in my wardrobe. The Fluevogs are awesome!
Sher, thanks! I'll be trotting them all out soon enough.
That is so cute. I'm getting kind of a Mad Men flashback. Adorable shoes!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Kari!ReplyDelete
