Think Pink

May 11, 2017
millennial pink

It all started in 2016 when Pantone named Rose Quartz colour of the year, the soft blush shade made its way into every Instagram feed, shopping bags and book covers, with brands like Acne, Pop & Suki, Glossier and Mansur Gavriel making it their trademark colour.

“The Always List,  timeless pieces that are the foundation of every wardrobe.” Over the last three years, I have definitely become a lot better at making considered choices when it comes to buying clothes, which has probably stemmed from the fact that I’ve financially prioritised other things like travelling, homewares and of course a mortgage!

You would assume that living 10 minutes away from the beach in Perth I would have a similar lifestyle, but sadly for lack of motivation, time and bad weather I just haven’t had the same connection with the coastline. However, Perth did grace us with a few sunny days these last few weeks and I took the…

If you didn’t by now know, art and fashion are my two favourite things – see my previous post here. Although I consider my style to be rather classic and minimal, a part of me loves bold prints, bright colours and something truly unique. So when I first caught sight of Elle Campbell’s hand painted silk garments at her graduate collection SOLACE, I instantly fell in love and began to follow her journey. Fast forward a year, Campbell has two incredibly…
