Tag Archives: hot pink
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!
