Strolling down a street in San Clemente, CA and there she was in the window. Graphic, bold and in my two most favorite colors. I knew she was expensive and not something I “needed” but oh how I longed for her. Sticky and our friend Regis humored my glee and then pout face when I said goodbye. Little did I know Sticky was plotting what we all hope our guy plots for us. He wanted to see me smile again the way I did the first time I laid eyes on that pretty mannequin in the window. Later that year he achieved his goal when much to my shock I opened up that gorgeous red and pink Trina Turk wool coat on Christmas morning. And oh did I smile but it wasn’t because of the coat.
Pink and red, red and pink. They are sort of the same but not quite and look simply lovely together. Nothing brightens up the middle of winter more than these shades and very much appropriate this close to Valentine’s.
