Think Pink!

Honeysuckle has been nominated Colour of the Year 2011 by Pantone! “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
I couldn't agree more - all Winter and Spring I searched the racks in both Auckland and Sydney for some BRIGHT Summer fashion. Only to be met with neutrals and pastels, and an disturbingly overwhelming glut of 'dusty pink'. I LOVE pink. I have loved pink since I was at the tail end of my 'black from head to toe' period in 1993, when I broke up with a like-minded boyfriend and by way of rebellion and closure, suddenly embraced pink in all it's fuschia glory - Schiaparelli-style. Pink is hot! I will be wearing pink through Winter and hopefully will have some appropriated threads for Summer 2011/12!

I'm not much into Valentine's Day - but it is my sister's birthday! (Check out her cool Blog here), So I prefer to celebrate that occasion. Never the less, here are some of my fave pink things this Valentine's month:
