{glamorously girly}

At eleven years of age, had the bedroom re-painted a perfect pink, and wore nothing else for two entire years.

Have since added more colours to my life {maybe not blue}, but have never given up my ultrafemme ways . . . whispery blouses, impossibly high heels, lip gloss, and ruffles . . .

I love the gold and warm pink in picture #3. It reminds me of the wedding post on Snippet & Ink today. Yummy!

I went through a compulsive Pretty In Pink phase that resulted into my father buying 3 cans of the perfect shade of pink for my bedroom. I still adore it.

The colours are just amazing! Love the last three pictures. Pink has become one of my favourites in the last year (in contrast I've never worn it before ;-))
Thank you for the great collection of photos!

pink is also a color i've only grown to appreciate over the past few years, thanks to a gorgeous trina turk vintage-looking, tailored black coat- that opens up to reveal a postively gaudy, silky vibrant fuschia inside. i've worn it so much i've already had to get the lining replaced!

and beautiful photos, as always.

there is noting wrong with ultra high heels, fabulous lip gloss and feminine blouses.... if so, we're both in trouble!

interesting you mention blue... I was just reading someone else mention how easy it is to mix blue into decor. For me it would stand out like a sore thumb. Blue is so far removed from my home's interior color palette.

WOuld love to know about that perfect shade of pink for the walls!

Vanessa -- no trouble at all -- thank you :)

Franki -- feel the same about blue and décor, and especially to wear . . . Will search for that perfect pink . . .
