Think Pink

October is the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a group of bloggers, organized by the incredible Patricia, Mrs. Blandings, are posting in PINK!

Coincidentally, pink happens to be one of the colours I love the most. It’s cheery in its brightest forms like this vibrant hot pink Prada that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to an awards show several months ago.Gwyneth-Paltrow-Pink-Prada-DressBut it can be very sophisticated like the pale pink that Gwyneth wore in this ill-fitting Ralph Lauren gown.

This is from an old Oprah magazine.hotpinkoprah01Pink and black can have a retro look, mimicking the look of mid-century children’s books, like Eloise.pink room-alanna cavanagh But it’s very easy to go overboard, like this!cute-girl-pink-room Or like an all Barbie-pink, shabby-chic, faux-Paris-theme house I recently heard about.

Think pink, but keep it sophisticated.


  1. One cannot deny that one of the all-time greatest homages to the color pink occurred in the movie "Steel Magnolias"... where Shelby (played by Julia Roberts) announces that her "signature colahs" are "blush and bashful"... at which point her mother (played by Sally Field) announces that the church looks like it's been coated in Pepto Bismol.

    I'm with Mom! (I've always been a black and chrome gal...) 8-)
