Fashion Inspiration: Whispery Pink

At present, I am sitting inside
a snow globe…a winter wonderland
outside our windows,
a restful retreat inside
with chai, a quietly crackling candle
(my first one!), and a freshly groomed
Bella Luna.

Everyone who sees this painting in our home
smiles and must know more about the artist.

Cindy loves pink, and I am
feelin the palest, blushiest
shades right now.

Aren’t we all craving serene
little pockets of time
in which to dream
weightlessly in pink?

Still loving what theRodarte sisters did in 2008

with this fall/winter collection.

You are invited into my dream.
Here’s what I’m wearing.

I’m sure my venture into blissfully
whispery pink solitude
has nothing at all to do with the pasta
dinner I prepared for 35 swimmers
last night at our house…right?

Peace to you right where you are.

    I love your idea of living inside a snow globe what a nice thought. Someone just gave us a shake since the snow is gently coming down again.

    LOVED and remember well that collection by Rodarte, thought it was the most beautiful dreamy and ethereal one I had seen in ages! So made me want to be a ballerina..always loved pale pink/blush.Still do. And a pasta dinner for 35? WOW! You impress me at every turn!

    How cute to describe yourself as living in a snow globe, what a lovely image… Love pale , pale pink!
    Happy Sunday…

    Totally dreamy Michele. The blush.. a perfect shade of pink.

    35 people??! Yikes.. that's a lot of pasta girlfriend! Cream sauce, red sauce, olive oil, meat.. it's all so good and everyone likes it!

    Love all the ethereal feel of this. I think of this as a relaxing retreat, with hazy pink all around me. Maybe I should look into getting a really soft and fluffy pale pink bathrobe and it will help me to dream a little! Thanks for sharing. -K

    Ohhhhh my goodness, that collection by Rodarte makes me swoon. It's heavenly… I am honored to be mentioned in a post with the absolute perfect, magical shade of pink!

    I love the idea of being inside a snowglobe! Just got your post – will write back now. 🙂

    I can totally see you whipping up some amazing pasta for a bunch of hungry swimmers!! I bet it was amazing as always!
    Loved every image and can't wait to show my Mom!! She owns and runs a dance store and loves anything that has to do with dance! My Mom was never and dancer but she had a sister who danced for Ballet West and was incredible!! I know my Mom will love your dream as well! It's fun getting peaks into your brilliant mind!

    Lots of love!

    10 pounds of pasta gone like *snap* that. i did two varieties of baked pasta so i could do it ahead. they were the sweetest group of swimmers and appreciated our candle lit cozy affair!

    Whenever I see an elegant ballerina….soft pink always comes to my mind, Michele. I love the sweetness of it….like the arrival of springtime! 🙂

    Suddenly, I feel I "need" a tutu. These images are gorgeous…and that painting of your dog is truly adorable. Does she take commissions and ship? Would love to know–I just know two lovely pups who I'd love her to capture. 🙂
