In the Pink

My most recent purchase has been a joyful addition to my wardrobe in this gloomy month of February: This absolutely gorgeous silk shirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim. It is the most beautiful pink, a proper saturated unabashed 'rose bonbon', the kind of colour I longed to wear as a skinny shorthaired tomboy growing up in womens-lib 70's Oslo. And now that I can do whatever I like... well, I like to frolic in it and add a pair of fuchsia ruby earrings. Because I can!
The earrings are my own dormeuse design, featuring faceted pear briolettes of hot pink rubies, wrapped in 14k gold-fill wire and suspended from 14k gold-fill hooks. Price: £36.
