“Roses are red, violets are blue, little girls wear pink and little boys wear blue….but can big girls wear it too?”
From a young age we are taught color associations like roses are red, violets are blue, little girls wear pink and little boys wear blue….but can big girls wear it too? Of course! Rose Quartz is a beautiful shade of pale pink which conveys compassion, love, elegance, tenderness and most importantly healing.
It is a very divisive color, often times women won’t touch it with a 10-foot-pole whereas others like myself, who were deprived of pink as a child, live in it (LOL) When Pantone named Rose Quartz the 2015 color of the tear, along with Serenity, I was estatic because I LOVE this soft, neutral, feminine color and since I have tons of pieces in my wardrobe, I was ahead of the trend! Not to mention it was perfect for the February color of the month, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the one day of the year that you can get away with all pink everything!
So, how can you get away with wearing a color typically associated with princesses, ballerinas, and 4-year-old girls? Here are 5 tips on how to wear pastel pink right (and still look like a Fashionista):
It's the girliest color to ever hit the fashion trends! Light pink looks great on everyone, and it's no longer just for spring!

Over the years I have often been complimented on my style and received comments like... "where did you get that" only to be followed by a... "You got that where?!?...You paid how much?!?" And I would giggle to myself as I sit back and think that I've given the illusion of making a $10 top look like a $100 top. I have always loved shopping for clothes wether online or in store but one thing I learned from my grandmother is NEVER PAY FULL PRICE !! So maybe its in my blood, but I literally refuse to pay full retail price for pretty much anything. Whether it's on sale, or using a coupon there is always a way to save.
Growing up in an era where social media has created this craze around creating an image of living a luxurious lifestyle, we often get caught up in the superficial things. Being fashionable or trendy doesn't mean wearing a gucci or louis bag with monograms all over it, in fact its quite the opposite. I've realized that being stylish or trendy does not mean that you have to pay a lot of money on high end designer labels, just a little inspiration and guidance !! In this blog I'll be sharing my tips and ideas on how to shop, style and be fashionable on a frugal budget!! Enjoy :)
