Ladies in Lavender

Cashmere cardigan. Valentino Red sequined dress. Kenneth Jay Lane snake belt. Costume jeweled garland & shadow facet bracelets. Hue knit polka dot tights. Vintage beige needlepoint bag. Loeffler Randall 'Matilde' boots.
I had a special place in my heart for everything pink long before Elle Woods (the heroine of the film Legally Blonde) declared it to be her signature color - I even went through a phase of incorporating pink into most of the outfits I wore when I was a little girl. Lavender is my favorite shade all grown up; this cardigan makes my sparkly organza frock more demure & complements these bracelets' prisms. I associate lavender with 1) Scarlett O'Hara from Margaret Mitchell's novel, Gone with the Wind (Ms. O'Hara taught me it's worn to indicate a lighter version of mourning) & 2) my internship at Betsey Johnson's showroom (Ms. Johnson nicknamed me "Lady in Lavender" in tribute to the tint of my top I wore on my first day there).

  1. I do like a bit of pink myself.
    Your outfit is lovely- particularly that gorgeous bracelet.
    The cardigan has a pretty Miu Miu aw09 feel to it.

  2. Wonderful out fit and 'look'.
    Please do more cashmere cardigans. You have a great sense of how to present them.
    Would love to see your wonderful classic style with classic cardigans.
