WHAT I WORE: Is Pink My Color?Thursday, March 09, 2017
Before I make the following statement about pink, I feel the need to state that I do not believe in traditional gender ideals and stereotypes. I believe woman can love the color blue and men can love the color pink. However, as someone who loves to dabble in jewelry and fashion, one could assume that I love the color pink, when in actuality, I'm the opposite. I've never really been a fan of pink. I don't know why. Give me shades of red all day, but when it comes to pink I can take it or leave it....Wait, I'm lying, there was this one year that I was obsessed with this Hot Pink lipstick shade from M.A.C...I basically wore it every day.
Skip forward to my Blogger Valentine's Day party where I set the dress code to be the standard Valentine's Day colors: white, red, pink, pastels, etc., and enter my pink dress. I actually went shopping for a new dress for this party and I was hunting for a red dress. I love red. RED is my color, but alas I could not find a cute red dress to save my life. I have several red ensembles in my closet, but I wanted something new. I was about to give up, when I came across this cute little number in Nordstrom's dress department. The color fit the theme, so I decided to try it on. I fell in love with the dress and was quite shocked that it fit. In fact it was a little big around the chest area so I had to have it taken in....What? Moi? Have something taken in!?!? I was completely overjoyed. In that same shopping trip, I also found one of my birthday dresses (the blue one in this post).
|Necklace: Seraphina (Kendra Scott) // Dress: Chelsea28 (Nordstrom) // Mini Crown: Target Party Section // |
Heels: White House Black Market // Lipstick: Clinique x Crayola Chubby Stick in Razzamatazz (gifted)
As far as styling the dress, I knew that I would pair it with my Kendra Scott birthday gift to myself: The Seraphina. I've been wanting this necklace since Fall of last year, but patiently waited for my birthday month to pick it up at 50% off. I recently purchased this pair of gray heels from White House Black Market, and thought they would look cool against a pink dress. I normally would have donned a traditional black pump with this dress. Thank you to Dawn, Leena, and Amanda for all of these fun photos of me from the Blogger Valentine's Day Party! Also shout out to Moonsun for giving me a fab makeup look complete with sparkle! Y'all definitely need to check her out!
