Pink for spring — the “new” color is probably already in your closet

So yesterday I wore mostly a cotton bathrobe and watched Season 1 of “Ingobernable” (Spanish language crime show) on Netflix and compared my problems and options with the heroine’s predicaments and solutions (well-dressed cast, by the way). This pink bathrobe is by Frette but I bought it so long ago at Costco that it has lost all it’s glamor — I call it “the wallowing look” and decided to explore pink my wardrobe — which always returns my smile, no matter the circumstances.

As you can see, faded pink bathrobe is not glamorous. So today I went exploring for pink in my closet and came up with a few items before I got completely exhausted.

I consider these Prada shoes pink-enough.

This is the Ermanno Scervino pink dress and coat that I bought on sale in Florence last July — some of my best finds over the last 25 years have been in Europe where fashion still seems to reign.

This is the pink Ermanno Scervino dress — sleeveless, flows easily, feminine. Great pink color. This designer is a must for stitching.

I bought this little pink dress in Italy two years ago and have rarely worn it — something I am reconsidering as I love the length of this dress after discovering the magical ways of Wolford Tights (Nylons) over legs that have survived more than five decades.

Matched this Hugo Boss pink silk tailored shirt with a black wool gabardine miniskirt by Balanciaga and a colorful belt by Copcopine for some sassy fun.

Here’s the frontal view of the pink Hugo Boss silk and wool Balanciaga tailored minidress — my favorite here!

Fun, easy, casual pink and black from Copcopine (I am wearing my favorite stretch legging pants by Copcopine, incredibly flattering!)

Casual cotton tunic by Joie.

Oh you know I have a weakness for lace, for pink, and for Alice and Olivia.

How I love Anne Fontaine blouses — especially this one in pink (Added the Ferragamo pink handbag I picked up at a sale in Paris another lifetime ago).

One of my treasures – paid cash for this pink leather Escada jacket found in the back room of Clothes Heaven, the consignment store in Pasadena.

Saucy pink skirt from Italy matches well with Anne Fontaine white blouse with lace sleeve.

Top off a pink BCBG skirt with a Joie lace shirt (big favorite).

LOVE this pink Hugo Boss silk blouse with the modest but flattering neckline which brings out the pink tones of this leopard-print suede leather miniskirt by Joie.
