Eggshell pink moto: nude or blush pink moto

 
The stock photo for this Forever21 blush pink moto was so light that the jacket appeared to be almost ivory in color.  As it turns out, the jacket is very much like a pretty eggshell pink or what some would call a pale baby pink cake icing.Very pleasantly surprised...

 and for your listening pleasure: Earth, Wind & Fire with Let's Groove - enjoy!

cool ways to wear blush pink moto: with white lace and black

the black shorts can be substituted for any other black garment...

fancy some sushi?

these little ankle socks are the cheekiest little dickens - just like tasty little sushi bites (four different kinds!) placed on a bed of nori, a.k.a. seaweed sheet... Bon appetit!

Magenta madness

still crushing over magenta though this little cropped cardi won't photograph to it's precise hue which is a deep magenta that is almost purple...

and here are Artie Shaw and Helen Forrest with Deep Purple
Enjoy!

Bargain bin find: red photo print art dress

another bargain bin find: this luscious red photographic print and rather artsy looking dress... You know it would make a good fitted tunic for low-rise jeans... Something so Warhol about it...
and here's Italian New Wave band Baltimora from the 1980's with Tarzan Boy - enjoy!

Loving the spots and floral combo

 
loving this combination of dots and flowers, could layer it with longer tops and sweaters with a plunging neckline and team it with slinky Swiss dot skirts I thrifted...
the skirt could be worn high so that the crop top does not reveal the tummy much and a kimono style cardi could tie the whole thing together... 
 this inexpensive little crochet shrug would work just as well...
sort of a pretty neutral cream, cocoa and black print...

enjoy Taco with Puttin' on the Ritz

Found: peacock blue velvet jacket

Found this really cute peacock blue (or is it turquoise or teal?) velvet jacket for $4 earlier this year. Another good point is that it stretches quite a bit so you don't feel all that restricted in it. Like the unusual peplum detailing.
goes pretty well with these teal floral leggings.
 this daisy print skirt...
this cute tiger t-shirt with the turquoise eyes!
and even this photo print floral top, which I was trying so hard to source then realized I already had one from perhaps a dozen years ago! So yes, it's pretty awesome to shop your own closet.

Was Lena Dunham’s Emmy gown a hit or a miss?

Blush pink find: pink moto jackets

 so I found several options for a blush pink or nude biker / moto jacket...

this one looks more like a pale eggshell pink
the same jacket above but a little less saturated in color, with just a hint of pink like cake icing...
 and this one like a true nude or blush pink...
 got a chance to take a pic of the actual jacket in "mauve" though it's more nude in person - too saturated!
wondering if this blush pink moto jacket is indeed as luscious in reality... 
Or is it more like this?  One thing's for certain - blush or pale pink works well as a neutral!

I've also decided that I preferred the blush pink to be on the paler side, like an eggshell pink or pale pink cake icing rather than a mauve.

Burgundy red moto jackets should be teamed with leopard!

when I see this burgundy red moto or biker jacket, I can just see it being teamed with leopard... Good idea?
 and that means a thin, slinky top underneath...
perhaps a leopard skirt or other bottoms of your choice such as leopard skinny jeans. Hey even a leopard scarf would work!

Dreamtime rainbow colors Coogi cardigan

 the front of this Australian made Coogi cardi is quite colorful...
but the back is just a little more colorful!

The organic, undulating shapes of this cardigan and other Coogi knits reminds me of art studies with Australian flora, such as eucalyptus leaves and nuts that I did while in primary and high schools in Sydney. While many Americans associate these sweaters and cardigans with Bill Cosby, I find them very native Australian, and in particular Aboriginal Dreamtime.

Purring for leopard rain booties

 
these leopard rain boots were bought at a local retail chain for $10 last winter - no rain needed - just don a pair of cotton socks to prevent steaming over during the hot, humid rainy weather. Purrrrr...
and here's Love Plus One by Haircut 100 - enjoy!

Is turquoise fur a little too wild?

I recently saw this pic of Sarah Jessica Parker looking amazing in her silky, rather bright turquoise blue fur coat, teaming the look with unusual coral pumps. By the way are those jelly shoes? I think I can see her toes through them!
as it's available online...
But somehow when I see robin's eggshell blue, I'm tempted to team it with pink and red roses in a shabby chic sort of way...
See what I mean? Maybe one could add a bit of cowgirl shabby chic with such a turquoise fur by donning a pair of cowboy boots, adding some pretty roses perhaps in the way of a scarf and and some light blue denim. I might even throw in a vintage 1980's bolo tie!
 or perhaps with these floral socks and deep red shoes...
 maybe something like this rosy scarf...
and maybe a short hip length jacket in a Swiss blue would be more manageable and cheaper too...
 how about a silvery blue one?
or maybe this one that's a little more on the teal side... Cute!

sorry, I just can't resist... found this little guy online:
Shut the front door! OMG it's Ken, as in Barbie's babe, in his fluffy turquoise fur jacket - someone's selling this item of clothing for dolls - I know!!! No, I don't think the Ken doll is included...

Tasty trend: silhouetted palm tree print

 very trendy...
 like the drink Tequila Sunrise...
pretty pastels...
 or perhaps an actual photograph - so Bora Bora...

They're making me homesick for coastal places where I've lived like Sydney and Southern California!

Camo and roses

I've got these camouflage cargo pants which I'm bravely trying to pair with other prints, as long as they have at least some of the colors in the camo print, in this case olive, black and even brown when the red and olive overlap. I've also teamed the remix with a burgundy red satchel to be worn cross-body to free up the arms and prevent slippage over the shoulder.
 as for shoes, perhaps red jelly sandals...
