Positively Pink

Monday already? Man, how does that happen?
I am feeling in the pink! Ha, get it? Ha, I kill myself. Seriously, that's a whole lotta pink going on.

"Under the word "brocade" in the dictionary, there's a picture of that coat," said one of my coworkers.  Yup, this jacket exemplifies brocade.

  • Dress - Jacob, consignment; just purchased yesterday here
  • Coat - Aldo, thrifted; last seen here in April with cream and pink
  • Shoes - Two Lips, thrifted; last seen here in August with my chambray dress

I tallied up all my clothing items for one of my coworkers:

  • Coat: $24.95
  • Dress: $10.00
  • Shoes: $2.00 (that's not a typo)

The dress did well on its first wear. It's pretty light and summery, though, so I think I will store it away for now. I wish it had pockets. Other than that, it's a great dress, and I'm sure I'll wear it a lot in the summer.

The stuff:
Monday shoes - they've got to be comfy.

Red and pink bling:
Even though I keep saying I'm tired of this necklace, it keeps hanging around!

  • Earrings - local
  • Necklace - Plum
Woo hoo! Shoe Shine is on this Friday! 
See you there!


  1. I LOVE this coat Sheila! And I also love these grown-up shades of pink! You look very pretty in pink!

  2. The pink dress pairs so well with that coat! You definitely will get a lot of wear out of it in the warmer weather- such a nice cheerful colour! Although you do well at wearing colour all through the year I guess! :)

  3. Definitely in the pink! Looking bright and sassy, Sheila, winter doesn't have to mean dark colours and heavy fabrics, does it? xxx

  4. So pretty in pink brocade! That jacket is a star and you wear it beautifully.

  5. Lots of pink going on, but I love it! The dress and coat go so well together! Shiny and fun!

  6. I've always been a fan of brocade - it exudes luxury in my book. Certainly that coat is an outstanding garment.

  7. Pink and gold are so pretty together - love that coat!
