Pink is my color 2.0

I still love pink. Even more than I did when I posted this a few months ago.

Maybe I’ll have a pink couch someday.

Guest post: @eimski on colored wedding gowns

Here’s the third in a series of guest posts from the wonderful Eimear.

While visiting @1chicklette a few months back, we discussed pink wedding dresses and she suggested that I write a guest post for her on them. Lo and behold less than two weeks later, Jessica Biel married Justin Timberlake in pink, and posed for the cover with her new husband nearly kicking her in the head and making this post all the more relevant.

Colored gowns have been in vogue for years. During World War I and II and in the post war periods, many brides could not afford expensive and elaborate lace and silk white gowns and many turned to colored dresses and smart suits. My own grandmother married my grandfather in a pale blue/gray suit nearly seventy years ago. When I got married off white was the color to have–mine was a cream, lace concoction). It seems more and more brides these days are embracing the color trend for their big day.

Here are my best and worst celebrity colored gowns. Continue reading

My sparkly shoes

When I Instagrammed this pic, a few of you asked about my sparkly shoes.

They are the Brochet flat by Enzo Angiolini. I bought mine a few months ago, but Lord & Taylor still has a few pairs (albeit in limited sizes).

L&T calls the color purple, however in person they are definitely closer to pink. Here are two views to make that point.

Like most flats, these don’t offer much, if any, arch support. When I’m not too lazy, I pop in some inserts from Good Feet.

If you shop online at L&T today (Saturday, October 27) you can receive 25% off with the promo code ONEDAY. Shipping is also free. Exceptions apply.

My new wallet

Yep, it’s hot pink. And I love it.

My current wallet – boring black and falling apart – has a bad habit of letting all of my loyalty cards fall out of its stretched compartments at least weekly. It has made for lots of awkward scrambling on coffee shop floors.

This is not a sponsored post. I just love RueLaLa!

NYC real estate: old pink bathrooms anyone?

Sometimes I review real estate postings even though I’m not exactly looking to move. While some listings make me swoony, more often than not my jaw drops for the wrong reasons.

I’m a pink lover, but no. NO.

I like to be sure I have a good place to live for my money. It hurts to write the monthly check, but I’m staying put.

Am I the only one hooked on real estate?

The grass isn’t always greener.
