Hot pink, light pink, champagne pink, piggy pink, carnation pink or paradise pink? The possibilities of pinks are endless and if you thought standing in front of one of B&Q’s colour charts was a confusing kerfuffle of colour, boy were you wrong. Forget 50 shades of Grey, with Wiki’s tints of pink you can even choose a nationality for your chosen shade and since the tones stretch from France to New York it is hardly surprising we women find it a struggle to match our dresses with our many accessories. But rather than rant that we have every notable pink colour of handbag bar the one we are really looking for, I’m just going to enjoy the perfect match created below.
Tickle me pink.
(Quite possibly with a blend of shocking pink and a hint of cherry blossom pink too!)
April brings many of my favourite things; cute little bunnies, chocolate eggs in abundance, the occasional sunny day and daffodils. But my fling with spring doesn’t end there, and it definitely doesn’t end with the dainty daff. With the choice of all the new year blooms, comes the chance to try something new and so came this seasonal accessory, a perfect pairing for some spring time galivanting.
A little late of the mark, hopefully unlike the horses, but here is a quick snap sent over by a summer client, sporting her cream and pink dress up for Ascot Races. I love the two colour combination with the pop of the two tones of pink against the cream, and the height given by the tilt of the base, but even more so, I love the selfie smiles.
Great dress, check! Bespoke, handmade fascinator, check! Happy racers, check! The only thing more satisfying than creating an object of beauty, is seeing someone happy to be wearing it. Thank you Amy Breslin for the photographs!
I would like to thank Nicky Maltby for sending me this picture perfect snap of her and her family having the time of their lives at a recent wedding. Looking beautiful in her bespoke, handmade fascinator, Rosa, made by yours truly, is a striking combination of cream veiling and pink roses and rosebuds on a thin cream alice band. A delicate beauty with a pop of colour, this is a photo I have a whole lotta love for.
