PANK and Purple Poser

Back to my first full week in...a while! Ugh, Mondays. There is nothing for it but to wear PANK.
 One of my coworkers tried to call this fuchsia. Nuh-uh! It's so pink it's PANK. Look at that colour! That is very much what it's like in real life - thank you, new camera!

  • Dress - Essentiel Antwerp, consignment; last seen here in February with fringed boots
  • Shoes - Ioni Poser, Fluevog; purchased here for $149.00

I kept this dress out in my spring/summer wardrobe to wear on the "shoulder" seasons (early spring/late summer) with tights. 

 It's far too short to go bare-legged.

And it was windy today! I went to see the movie "Halston" (link here) after work, and walked home carrying groceries.
 With all my bags and my dress riding up, I was very happy to have tights on. I also have a short black mini half-slip.

Yeah, Monday.
 This is just an excuse to wear a ginormous PANK dress and be quiet. The dress is loud enough.

The stuff:
 These are probably fall/winter shoes (yes, that is wool), but I wanted to sneak in a wearing of them before it gets too warm. They were lovely all day, although the sole is slippy.

Sparkly bling:
I like all the random colours in that necklace.

  • Necklace - thrifted
  • Earrings - Reiss, vintage 60s, vintage fair
  • Amber ring - c. 1996
  • Amethyst/gold ring - Frances Jewelers, c. 1965, Dad's


  1. Wouldn't it be great to have short weeks all the time? But you did look ready to tackle Monday, whatever it would bring. Your fabulous PANK dress would have been enough to do the trick, but adding those groovy tights and your new shoes make it the ultimate Monday outfit! xxx

    1. Oh, gosh, wouldn't it, Ann? Maybe when I'm closer to retirement. Thanks so much, my dear!

  2. Perfect PANK! Especially with those tights and shoes. I hope your week flies by smoothly.

  3. Pank makes the world a better place. As do you.

  4. MAKE IT CLEAR: it's pank!
    I love this shade and what a bright and happy outfit dear She.

  5. Your pank is a winner. It's made my week already!
    Love the tights and the fuzzy shoes. xxx

  6. Love, love, love the dress. And I would call this fuchsia too. Essentiel is such a good brand. You made them proud with the necklace on this dress.

    1. Ha, you are such a rebel, Greetje. I love this dress and the brand - I wish I could find more of it here. Aw, thank you.

    2. Finally got an advantage over Canada. You have your splendid second-hand shops, I have Essentiel. (Still think you have the best deal though).

    3. You do! I think I would die if I went into an Essentiel shop (at least, my Visa card would explode!).

  7. I think the heads of the folks I work with would explode if I wore that dress to the office; they are so used to seeing me in black and grey, that would shock the heck out of them! PANK is where it's at!!

    1. Ha! I think my colleagues' head would explode if I wore another black dress! I love this bright PANK.

  8. A pank dress is just what you need to start the working week. And the wool shoes are so unique! X

  9. wowww, I'm loving your PANK dress and how fabulous it looks with your colorful necklace and tights!, and those shoes have an amazing texture!
    You know how to cheer up any dull day, spreading the world with PANK-ness!

    1. Hee, it's so PANK! Thank you! Glad that gave you some brightness.

  10. You can never go wrong with a blast of PANK - so inspiring. I'm off to have a look in my closet to see if I can find anything as fabulous as this!
