Lookbook: Pretty in Pink

4/20/2011


Lookbook


pink-ladiesAre you a fan of the movie Grease? I mean, who isn't? I love the original (and I've even seen Grease 2 with Michelle Pfeiffer a few times). But I was definitely a big fan of their style, especially those poodle skirts, pink jackets and gum popping ways. So I guess that sort of inspired me to put together this outfit. And by the way, my favorite Pink Lady is Rizzo!

Who is your favorite?

pink-romper1Anyhoo, have you all seen those Maxxinista commercials? I'm sure you have. I got so bored with constantly shopping at the same two places--even though I do enjoy the stores. So I thought I'd try to make my way to stores like TJ Maxx and Ross and dig through the large amounts of discounted clothes in search for diamonds in the rough.

pink-romper3I actually found a few cute pieces--tops, rompers and shoes--that I fell in love with. This romper is absolutely adorable and has a really unique design and cutout back. I paired it with this pink jacket that I've had for quite a while (I mean, since high school). It would be awesome if the jacket were green or something so I could do some color blocking. The belts are in two different shades of pink. And what about these awesome clogs? Oh and I got my hair done--this style makes me feel very California chic.

pink-romper2What do you think of my look?

Jacket -- Charlotte Russe
Romper -- from Ross
Belts -- Target
Clogs -- Dolce Vita from Ross
Jewelry - Assorted

  22. You look so adorable in the romper. And your legs look amazing in it! I love how you mixed the print with a solid jacket. I also think the jewelry is a great touch.

    Grease is such an amazing film...my favorite Pink Lady is Rizzo. She was tough and could hane with the guys, I liked that about her and her style was great too. Now I am going to have "Hopelessly Devoted" stuck in my head ; ).

  27. You TOTALLY epitomize Pretty in Pink. This is as you're PRETTY (gorgeous, actually. But "Gorgeous in Pink" doesn't have a good ring) and you're in PINK. Hah!

    But seriously. You look incredible -- and I loooove your smile!

  28. You look Awsome!!! Very California chic indeed. I love your little cropped jacket, and I'm trying to figure out how to manage the color blocked look with my color deprived wardrobe.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh gosh, I can't even count how many times I've seen the movie grease. Whenever I see a pink blazer or jacket, my mind immediately goes there! You're too cute in your modern day pink lady ensemble!! And that romper is just adorable. I usually don't give ross the time of day, but maybe I should start. I didn't realize they had such cute clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow! SUCH a cute outfit, I absolutely love that playsuit! Your accessories are the perfect choice and make it look fun but not too babydoll pink if you know what I mean!?

    I LOVE TJ Maxx (it's called TK Maxx in the UK). Great for all sorts of treasures!

    I've given you an award on my blog!
