Friday's Fancies

2/10/2012


This Friday's Fancies has everything to do with red and pink (which seems fitting with Valentine's Day around the corner). Admittedly I am so boring when it comes to color schemes. When deciding between a black dress and a fun flirty pink one, I'll always choose the black. I reason that I'll get more use out of black.  It never goes out of style, right? Except when you realize that 85 percent of your closet looks like it's going to a funeral. So the lesson to be learned is: We all need some color in our lives and for those who can pull of the bright and bold color-blocking of pink and red: I bow my black hat.

P.S. Our Valentine's giveaway is here...go ahead and enter it!

oh yes! clours! I used to be a fan of blacks too, but now here and then I'm trying to diversify my wardrobe palette. Although there are always days when I feel like wearing black-black-black top to toe.

Red and pink has been one of my favorite color combos since I was a little girl.

Nicole - Craft My Soul said...

This is one gorgeous V-Day outfit. I like your interpretation of the outfit. I would never think to put something like this together... you inspired me to think outside the box more.
