The Girl in the Pink Coat

Photobucket
These are some more photographs taken outside of Rockliffe Hall that I posted about before. You can see from the outside more than the inside just how new and modern a hotel it is. As I said before, I much prefer old buildings in a dull stone than this bright brick. But the gardens were good for a quick walkabout and some ubiquitous blogger posing.

I've had this pink coat for quite a few years now. Like many of the pieces I end up turning to for years to come, it was bought at a time when I really did not need another coat, much less have the budget for it. I was *just passing through* Reiss when I spied this beautiful pink/lilac shade in just the right cool tone that I like, on sale. I tried it on and loved the simple cut, large covered buttons and bracelet sleeves. I did leave the shop empty handed but couldn't quite get it out of my head, so made necessary plans to make it happen... with the help of my fairy god-mother... aka mama!

  7. The color is unusual for outerwear and so pretty on you, and I love the visible stitching. I agree -- if you can't get a garment out of your head, if you can think of multiple stylings for it for the years to come, and the cost can be managed -somehow-, go for it!

    You are blessed, by Chanel and otherwise. I wish I had your magical photo touch.
    Are you far from London? I'll be there in mid-April and would love to meet... and why not shoot photos too.
