Pickle pink

28th June 2012






Whatever that denotes the meaning of pickle pink, it’s a temporary tribute to my new found love of Japanese side dish pickled ginger (Gari), eaten too much I’d get a nosebleed, I’m not kidding. The dry pickling colour palette helps conceal my expired youth if blended properly with appropriate colours for my skin tone – make up, clothing and accessories, looking like a salmon’s flesh will end up in the hands of a fishmonger.

My outfit: Beige tunic dress – KOOKAI, 2 tone cashmere sweater – c/o MURIEE, socks – TABIO, Brogues – DR. MARTENS, Clutch – c/o MCM, digital watch – CASIO @ ASOS.COM.  THANKS SHINI FOR TAKING MY PHOTOS.

    You looked like a fluffy carebear and a pink marshmallow at the same time!
    Oh yeah also, if you squint a little you’re basically camouflaged into that pink wall.

      @Shini If I squint a little more, my eyes will disappear.

    I adore this type of shoe but they just do not work for me. Tell me it’s a confidence thing and I should try again?
