Pretty In Pink

Jul 15, 2018

You know that one color that you always avoid because you think it’d look horrible with your own personal coloring?  Pink is it for me.  I worry about it being too close to the pinks in my own complexion.  My hair is basically a darker shade of pink.  And I’m actually more of a blue tone (which I learned when I was on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick).  However, I used to feel the same way about red and now I love wearing reds, so I’ve decided that I’m going to just “go for it” and attempt to pair some pinks into my daily wardrobe.

Plus, Molly Ringwald totally pulled off a pink polkadot dress in Pretty in Pink with her gorgeous red hair.  Maybe I can too?

The Sly Fox Fabrics team sent me this super cute polkadot print in a double brushed poly and I was so excited to turn it into a dress.  It’s summer.  It’s hot.  And I’m avoiding wearing pants to work as much as possible.

We actually had a huge launch party for a rebrand at work and I wanted something to wear for it.  I did end up throwing a blazer over it for the event, but I made this adorable M4M Mama Joy and it got me through all of the preliminary event set-up nonsense, as well as the party itself.  The pleats sell this pattern for me.  It elevates it a little bit from a basic dress to something a little extra.  It was a perfect outfit to wear that day!

Lucky for you, this fabric is part of a restocking with Sly Fox Fabrics this week!  I believe it launches on Wednesday, July 18, so you’ll be able to snag some of this gorgeous fabric for yourself.

What would you make with it?
