How dare I talk about pink. After all, it's like Donald Trump giving a Ted Talk on staff retention. Ok...not quite, because, I respect pink, I dress my children in it, I smile when I see pink flowers, and I would not buy and then get rid of pink. In any case, it's one of the most popular of spring colours. And let's not forget just how many romantic walks take place during a Rayleigh scattering (aka: pink sunset). Pink is...well, a happy colour that generally elicits good feelings. And apparently there is a millennial pink. So, let's explore the colour of now:


This is just 'the' sweetest, with crochet lace and paired with denim. Pink truly seems to be at it's best with the ruggedness of denim. They bring out the best in each other.

Cream lace blouse (chalk or sea pink) $79


I think this open front jacket is just a brilliant take on the blazer with the added frill edging. If you're a little too timid to go too feminine, again, as above, wear with jeans and find a fun, graphic or band t to pair it with to offset the girliness.

Cream cardigan jacket (midnight or sea pink) $99


Or...maybe just a light whisper of pink perhaps? Great blouse, fresh and light; love it paired with the pencil skirt but would clearly work well with ankle length jeans or trousers. Liven it up with a pendant or three and your favourite jacket.

Ichi long sleeve blouse (rose dust) $69

Ichi houndstooth skirt (black) $69


Utilitarian + pink = pretty functional. A sweet, simple cut that's sure to appeal to most, with a carefree print which to me resembles pussy willows blowing in the wind.

Ichi dress (dark grey, military olive, navy or old rose) $65

Imagine a world where crows, piano keys or dulse (it's an east coast thing), were pink....hmmm...maybe not! Because really,  there's a good reason why pink is the colour typically associated with anti bullying and fighting breast cancer. Because despite it being a light hearted version of it's angry, edgy, cousin red, the power of pink is in it's softness. Because kindness rules!

The full quote is "Well behaved women, seldom make history"~Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. In honor of International women's day, I thought this could be an apt title for this weeks blog. My only question is...why only one day!! We do great things...we run businesses, we teach, clean up after people, perform surgery and gee our bodies are capable of making people...and we only get one day? Well, let's celebrate the other 364 as well...wear what we love most, adorn ourselves with fabulous accessories; whatever makes us feel powerful, happy and US! (fyi, naked can feel this way too;)


Those are some dangerous curves...which is one difference between us and the other half. And why shy away from them. If you have them (curves that is), show 'em off! After all, when you have a fabulous caboose, your pants stay up better.

Point Zero embroidered blouse with crochet insert (cream) $75

Yoga Italy jean (hand sanded) $148


This seriously well designed Simone dress takes an uncompromising approach to fit. Cap sleeved, exposed zipper, fully lined, colour blocked, providing a perfect, sleek looking, professional addition to your wardrobe.

Simone slim dress with contrast and short sleeves (black/white or Navy/white) $149


Yes, I's not all about the hips. This fabulous, a line swing shape dress draws attention upwards...where your beautiful face is. The great thing is, with such a neckline, who needs jewellery...or at least a necklace is redundant.

Very J open neck sleeveless a-line dress (black) $59


Try these camouflage pants if you're looking for a way to stand out from the crowd from the sea of solid colour bottoms...or rather, I guess you'd blend in....ANYWAY, they're fun, great casual weekend wear apparel.

Mavi Juliette cargo pant (military green) $118


You know, you're the star attraction, you don't need a sweater to prove that, although, why not! Fun, albeit subtle star featured in the middle!

Soya concept star sweater (sand) $85

So, in this 'week' that celebrates women...I say I'm grateful for all those great women in my life, my Mother, my sisters, my aunts, cousins, friends and even my little girls....and heck even my brother because he's been like a sister to me...

Yours in Fashion passion...
