Pretty in pinks

Well, happy Monday to you.  February in NYC is a bit grey right now...overcast, with snow still on the ground and there's more of that to come.  So, I thought I'd show you guys what we have to look forward to this spring.  Hang in there, it's just a few weeks away...and later this week I'll post some great winter sales that'll make you forget about the frost.

So, the first thing that came to mind when I saw this outfit was, "quick--think of an event where I could wear this so I can justify buying it!" Ok, so it's not in the budget.  At all...but it is on my wish list. Paz De La Huerta from Boardwalk Empire looks smashing in it, doesn't she? Here are the specs: Halter dress & blouse: Yves Saint Laurent. Pumps: Miu Miu,  Sombrero: Prada 
  Ok, so I'll admit that other than a few decor accessories I've never really used pink except on my face and in my wardrobe.  Can't say I ever decorated with pink. I'm going to re-think that for any upcoming design projects cuz me likey.

                         2. Pittsburgh: Cranberry splash #134-6
