Millennial pink

Never heard of this term? Neither had I, until 2 weeks ago.  I wore my new Zara Pleated skirt into the office, when my Creative Director upon passing by in the hallway said, "you guys and your millennial pink!" I looked past her confused, what was she talking about and why was someone older telling me? I must be slipping!!! Lol.

Well thanks to good ole Google, I found out it's a term used for the dusty pinks, semi-pink nudes or blushes you currently see everywhere on brands, influencers, various Instagram feeds and even new restaurant decor. Then after reading , New York Magazine’s The Cut, it confirmed to me it’s here to stay. 

Pink has always been a color I have enjoyed wearing. It is fun, positive, and sweet. However; I love to wear it with a contrasting black, because it then becomes seductive, as shown below on a recent evening out. 


With this look, because the top was va va boom 💥, I kept the bottom simple. My closet was missing black pumps and these Paul Andrew shoes fit the bill. I loved the added statement of the heel, which is shaped to mimic the iconic NYC Chrysler building. Also I found these at a recent sale at the designers showroom, $50 was a score for a $995 pair of shoes. The shoes gave me extra height and provided great arch support walking these NY streets. Also the Zenadia is a classic style for this designer and you can find a number of colors online, here.


I missed the Edie Borgo sample sale last month, but my jewelry box is not short his designs. The five finger ring in silver was just the right amount of jewelry needed. No other arm party additions necessary. As of today you can still find these online at GILT, Neiman Marcus, and The Webster.
