Thinking pink

 
So, I'm somewhat flirting with the idea of dying my hair pink - as soon as my hair goes white, I'll take inspiration from Dame Helen Mirren and go pink...

Mirren actually said that she was copying the pink hair dying trend among young women these days...
WOW - that looks incredible - and she doesn't have to be an emo or rebel to do it!

although, there's nothing new about tinting one's hair pink...
like Mrs Slocombe in 70's show Are You Being Served? where her hair was tinted virtually all colours of the rainbow!

and then there's Aussie Dame Edna Everage...
simply fabulous!

Shocker!

not sure what to make of this shocking bright bubblegum pink jacket which was supposed to be more like a pretty lilac -- oh it's a shocker! The length of the fur was supposed to be longer and straighter, kind of shaggy... This XXL turned out to be more like a snug Small... Hmmm... Still so very shocked!!!
with a bright flash and no light adjustment, looks a little lighter and icier or bluer
doesn't look much different photographed without a flash and in yellowish light. Like bubblegum as in the first picture... Whoah!!!
what it was supposed to look like per their stock images -- icy lilac and so fluffy and shaggy and incredibly hip on her...

Sweet pink crush: coconut ice coat

 keeping my peepers peeled for a long pale pink overcoat these days...
wondering what the actual hue of this coat would turn out to be... Like lilac or a powder pink? 
kind of like a luscious light mauve as they represent it...
 like the leopard scarf with a similar pink coat...
 a black and white leopard works well too -- or is that cheetah?
just a touch of leopard is all you need...

just a piece of Berlin

colourful artwork from the newly fallen Berlin Wall (looks like my multicoloured galaxy blog banner!)
the pebbled concrete from which this part of the Berlin Wall was built

As the re-unified Berlin celebrates 25 years of the fall of the Berliner Mauer or in English, Berlin Wall, on November 9 I hold a chunk, remembering that I've owned a historical piece of Berlin for more than two decades! (close to a quarter of a century) My how time flies...

Here is Berliner Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester with What a Difference a Day Makes

loving: burgundy, blush, magenta and lilac

this burgundy boyfriend coat / jacket I featured earlier turned out to have a basketweave pattern in the knit and is quite warm!
 this lilac pink, magenta, burgundy and blue paisley scarf is a perfect match!
loving these blush pink socks with magenta, purple, pink and red lips or kisses that go with the coat! Awesome when things coordinate...

Crushing: enameled camellia brooches

toy Chanel? I love the Art Deco charm of these stylized camellia flowers rendered into earrings and a brooch...
and this Nolan Miller "Lara" camellia brooch is gorgeous with its Arte Nouveau charm...
this vintage ivory flower, perhaps a dogwood or camellia, by Weiss looks quite like a camellia as well...debating whether a gold center would be better than black or perhaps gold with a touch of black...

Cute: 1920s style flapper with cloche brooches

love this 1920s style flapper with cloche brooch!
 equally cute in blue and lilac!

and here's Max Raabe Palast Orchester with a Charleston any flapper would love!
love the camellias on her robe...

Blushing for: nude blush pink jeans

liking these rolled up at Capri length which lends a girly touch to such a sweet blush pink...

they make me wanna go to a beach somewhere, Bobby Darin says it best:
Somewhere, beyond the sea...

Serendipitous find: a painterly floral clutch

love the way this floral clutch bag looks just like a photograph of a beautiful still life painting done by a Renaissance master. All the blush pink flowers are perfect for teaming with nude / blush pink clothing...
it's as if I just visited an art museum in Europe and bought a functional souvenir at their gift shop but for a fraction of the price!

Loving: leopard wrap dress

deeply, deeply discounted and rather sexy leopard or cheetah print V-necked wrapover dress - just like the one a high school friend in Sydney, Petra Butters donned in the early 1980's for Mufty Day.  Simply adorable!

and here are Depeche Mode with Just Can't Get Enough...
thanks fellas! :-)

Can't get enough of that leopard!

I like the simple, unstructured styling of this chic leopard all-weather cutie by Karen Kane...
 just a classic leopard print and long, elegant lines...
 would look great with capri-length or skinny jeans!

Crushing: coral pink leopard scarf

love the different shades of pink and coral that are teamed with a dark brown leopard print... Meooow!!! ^ ^

Lusting for: teal leopard trench

can't help but lust over this gorgeous little Joan Rivers teal or peacock blue / green leopard print trench coat that just screams "stroke me, I'm your little kitty!" ;-D

Crushing: autumnal burgundy coat

love the deep wine colour and the "boyfriend" fit
this might be mid-thigh length for me
nice 80's style baggy fit!

like a pink snow bunny!

there's something so very tasty about these blush pink Ugg type fur-lined boots!

Mona Lisa Bean

Leonardo Da Vinci's enigmatic Mona Lisa smile gets an improvement as seen by PhotoShopper Rodney Pike, juxtaposed with British actor Rowan Atkinson of Mr. Bean fame... Brilliant!

Sleek wheels

 
sleek and timeless, the 1964 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Crushing over: soft blush pink boyfriend blazer

 like how this blazer is loose and unconstructed like a boyfriend blazer...
 
looks like three-quarter length sleeves with a slight gathered cuff.  Cute...
 and I think it would pair well with these oxblood jeggings...
