I rarely wear pink. It’s not that I don’t like pink, I just don’t like wearing it much. I mostly wear black, blue or bold colours. My sister often encourages me to mix it up with a little pink, so when I spotted this cardigan, I thought of her. Put a pink cardigan with a cream lacy top and a sky blue belt and you have shabby chic.
Pants: Purchased last year (2009) from Target
Belt: $1 Vinnies Op Shop
Earrings: Eclectic Dreams
What I love most: The Foley China teacup. It was my mums. And I like the top too: it’s pretty.

Another tip: Don’t be afraid to mix the old with the new. The top and cardigan are new, the pants are last season and the belt is vintage. I love what Drew Barrymore wore to the Nylon Magazine/Express party this week in Los Angeles. Her Op Shop dress was $25 (US) and the Yves Saint Laurent “Tribute” pumps were $760 (US). That’s really mixing it up isn’t it?
