Rosy blush

 loving the shabby chic of this blush pink corduroy jacket...
 that would be awesome for autumn and spring...
this black and blush pink camellia scarf...
worn over this vanilla lace dress...
this blush pink floral necklace...
these nude / blush pink jelly sandals...
 these blush pink horsebit mules...
or these blush pink mule sneakers...
and this pink floral bag...
or over a simple black sheath dress...
 and it might also go with this rose print skirt...

Borrowed from the boys

 intrigued by the chic of this black orchid Hawaiian shirt...
 though it looks black, red and white from afar...
it is quite colourful with brown, yellow and green touches...
worn open with this lace trim black tank top...
 I want to add colour to the look with red pants like these jeans...
these red sandals...
and this red tote bag...
this cinnabar pendant coral necklace...
this red coral bakelite bangle...
this mahjong bracelet will also pick up on all the colours...
and these amber frame sunglasses...
 or red baggy pants...
these black sandals...
these black culottes would also work...
or these black and white quilted captoe flats to dress it up a bit...
this white straw hat...
as well as these dark red retro sunglasses...
and of course I cannot help but think of Tom Selleck in his orchid Hawaiian shirt for Magnum P.I. (and love that look on John Hillerman for his Higgins role ;-)

Roses are red

 came across this pretty multi red striped cardigan top...

or this rainbow stripe cardigan will team well with...
this rose print skirt...
 I also want to team this pink floral shirt...
with this pale blush pink pleated skirt...
these blush pink horsebit mules...
or this blush pink mule sneakers...
blush pink messenger bag...

Christian Dior 1947 Bar Suit 70th Anniversary

this year sees the 70th anniversary of the iconic Christian Dior 1947 Bar Suit that featured a full pleated skirt and hip length ivory jacket, nipped in at the waist and with a small shawl collar...
in 1957 Christian Dior did a remake of the 1947 Bar Suit with a less-voluminous pleated black skirt and flouncier ivory jacket with a notched collar and one less button...
In 1947 RenĂ©e Breton wore the Christian Dior Bar Suit with an inverted bowl hat, black gloves and ivory pumps...
to commemorate the look, I shopped my closet to resurrect this silky ivory cropped jacket...
 that may not be an exact match for either jacket but comes close enough!
this full silhouette flounced and tiered black crushed velvet skirt for the 1947 look...
or this black and white floral number for a variation on the theme...
and my quite collegiate black pleated skirt which is closer to the 1957 look...
a simple black tee underneath, mainly to prevent sweating over the jacket...
 these black sandals...
or these black peeptoe booties...
and the black and white patterned fedora with flower...
black clover earrings...
this black enamel floral necklace...
and this ivory enamel bamboo bangle...
