Tag Archives: hot pink
I am obsessed with the insanely saturated PINKness in this image and I think Jessica looks like a jetset girl sashaying up the stairs. One of the designers of Tilly and William, she was one of our many friends last night at our party for Free the Girls. Thanks to her and everyone else who came out and made the evening a success.
This top is the Poltergeist Cut0out top in slime time print from Gerlan Jeans spring 2012 collection – a label known for its bright and crazy patterns and streetstyle influence. I don’t know if I’d be bold enough to wear lime green but Jonna rocks it with polka dots and hot pink keds.
I’ll admit it– I am like a crackhead for hot pink. It’s the color associated with the Barbie doll my mother refused to buy me. (hence I started my own collection at age 14 –but that’s a whole other story!) It’s also the color of the one piece swimsuit with cleavage enhancing ruching I got when I was 12 sans cleavage…still waiting for that too! My point is I love hot pink, but I never ever wear it because really: doesn’t it almost always look cheap & tawdry? So thank you Jake Hammel for showing me a way to rethink this particular pink. Oxfords may just be the best fashion bet for this color. And the matching pocket square a great added touch.
Gala Darling is a blogger that seems to be a bit controversial: people think she’s a blogger’s best friend who gives business advice on making a living from a blog or a rich girl living off of a trust fund who pretends to make a living…I neither know nor care (although the fact she took off commenting does give me pause). In any case before I knew much about any of that I took this photo. And anyone who knows me well knows I am almost magnetically drawn to hot pink…even though I never wear it myself! So it’s good to have a little out there in the world! And if you have a more informed opinion of Ms. Darling feel free to comment below!
If you have hot pink hair maybe black is the best solution. The jacket has a great asymmetry and she’s rocking the spiked heels!
