Pink Wishes and Dreams

I don't really like most pastel colors. I find that they fade into the crowd, and they look far too reminiscent of the sickly Easter-wear of my childhood. But lately, I have developed an attraction to dusty, ballerina pinks. I haven't the foggiest notion as to why, seeing as I don't dance and I've never been particularly fond of pink before. Perhaps it's that dreamy Piscean nature that I can't seem to avoid, no matter how much I insist to myself that I am a perfectly articulate and analytical girl who does not buy into astrology. Well, for whatever reason, I think these gentle, ethereal shades of pink look so very feminine and touchable. I don't think I even own anything in light pink, but it looks as if I won't be able to avoid this for much longer.

Is that enough saccharine for one day?

i agree, i own nothing pink and i feel bizarre wearing pink...i do have a sort of salmon coloured shirt, but it has a skull on it so i feel that cancels any pink-ness out

Oooo I really like the dresses, I nevery thought of ballet slipper pink as more than a nail polish shade...

I have just passed on your blog,
I wrote you this message, because I have myself a blog. The objective is that people send me their picture(s) with the clothes they intend to wear today or the next few days. And this to find out how is the fashion for people like you and me and by people from all over the world. I live in Singapore and here, fashion has a big importance, there’s a mix of cultures. It gives a colorful city… Anyway!
I think it’s great to share, to see how people match their clothes and accessories together. Anyway maybe I’m dreaming a little bit but who doesn’t intend anything, doesn’t get anything.

If you know anyone interested, it’d be great to talk about it, if yourself you find the idea interesting, of course!

My blog :

Thank you in advance

Have a nice day

valentino basically perfected the color pink and the ballerina style in his spring collection.
