There are certain times when you really question yourself as a creative person - like when you become obsessed with something that pretty much no one else likes.
A few years ago I saw my BFF Milla wearing fluorescent pink nail polish (this was way before it was sold at Urban Outfitters), and I became obsessed with bright, bright pinks. Because I work in commerce and people were supposed to actually buy things I was working on (and I wasn't working on Pepto Bismol packaging), it was kind of a weird color to get behind. Anyway, it gives me great satisfaction to see it becoming so important. It's the new true red.
I love it as a single piece (like Leigh's dress), but I love it more as a detail because it looks so good with black, pale denim, and my love-of-my-life sweatshirt grey.
(If I had a little Risko Barbie, I would dress her up in this Top Shop bra under a loose grey tank dress.)

2. Bubblegum Bandage skirt, Nasty Gal $52
3. Gestuz very pink dress, Pixie Market $121
4. Faux Ray Bans, Forever 21 $5.80 (actually I really love these)
5. Pepto brogues, Top Shop $125
And in a somewhat related story, I just want to say I am loving The Stylish Wanderer (top right image) and you should follow her on Twitter- unless you're a guy, in which case it may be illegal to follow a 13 year old girl. Sometimes I wonder if she is real, or if someday she'll be revealed to be another lonelygirl15 or Black Ascot ... (check out the latter if you haven't yet- amazing bogus blog).
And you can follow me too on Twitter while you're at it.
