Pink in a Sea of Black

Tanya from Design Action Studios and Angry Julie

I went out for a little retail therapy with the bff, Stacey, last week. Lately retail therapy could be called, "let's look and not buy, cause we are poor and/or Christmas is coming". We hit the usual places...Pottery Barn, Z Gallery, and one of my favorite boutiques. I always look for some great finds in this boutique, but most of the time, their things run a tad small. I saw a sale rounder with a 50% sign on it, whoppee..

Well of course, a bright pink coat was screaming my name. I didn't even look at the price and tried it on. I squeeled, because it fit. Talk about exciting! I hadn't even looked at the price yet, which was $56.99 by the way. It was mine, all mine!!

I knew that I was going to a Twitter meet-up or otherwise known as Tweet-Up (I loathe that word) that same night. I questioned the weather and if I could wear the coat. I put my hands in the air, and said why not! So I paired the coat with a black shirt, jeans, and black shoes.

When I arrived, I saw that most everyone was wearing black. I stuck out like a sore thumb in the crowd, it was a sea of black. It was a good thing that I chose to wear the coat, because the event was on an outside patio at a restaurant. And yes, talk about being noticed, everyone came to introduce themselves, to the girl in the pink coat.

  4. Stopping by from SITS :). I have to agree about the wordpress yada, yada. I just don't have the time to learn it either, even though I love the look.

    Pink is so the new black.
