for starters, it's got that vintage vibe...
love the detailing on the back and the buttons on the sleeves - nice classic styling...

Ya know it's getting harder to find a blush pink / nude winter coat, but I've come to the conclusion that most shades of a pink known as "blush" are usually a pale peach, apricot or mauve, though many retailers are calling pale candy pink "blush" too. So not only is "blush" hard to define but harder to find in a coat these days, being very much in demand!
I like how this loosely constructed pale peach / apricot blazer is close to blush pink or nude

Not sure what to make of this coat, which is really a lightweight autumn coat, rather than a warmer winter coat it was supposed to be - the colour is completely different, brighter than blush pink but lighter than the lilac pink expected...
I guess it's more like an icy coconut ice pink but more pastel than blush or nude pink. Spring in Autumn!

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...

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
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?

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

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!

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...

they make me wanna go to a beach somewhere, Bobby Darin says it best:
Somewhere, beyond the sea...
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!
and here are Depeche Mode with Just Can't Get Enough...
thanks fellas! :-)
