Everything is better in (dusty) pink

No need to say that we are not afraid of a touch of pink. My latest obsession is everything dusty pink, it attracts me in everything; interior, accessories, clothes, …. I think dusty pink is really pretty and dainty. I love how elegant and flattering this shade is and at the same time soft and neutral enough to go well with other colors.

As we are creating lots of Christmas gift guides lately, I thought I’d use my dusty pink obsession to create a Christmas mood-board inspired by this pretty shade.

Here are some of our top dusty pink products that we would love to receive under the Christmas tree.pink gold watch

Perfection in a watch by Morris Richardson. The Belvoir classic watch combines sophisticated style with effortless elegance. Harbouring the perfect balance between contemporary and traditional design, the Belvoir is the ideal companion for the modern, fashionable and style-concious lady. The Belvoir incorporates a pink genuine Harris Tweed strap with soft leather backing.

When we purchased our first Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis in 2016, nobody could imagine that this bag would become the it-bag of 2017. You can read our blogpost about the monogram canvas model here. In the summer of 2017, Louis Vuitton launched a dusty pink version of the bag. It was sold out everywhere in no time and we weren’t able to get our hands on it. Luckily, Louis Vuitton is launching lots of new colors for fall/winter17-18 and this one in rose bruyere is available for pre-order. An elegant accessory that will accompany you wherever you go.

Oh knitwear…Nothing beats quality cosy knitwear, especially when it is designed by one of our favorite brands, Acne Studios. We’re smitten for the nonchalant vibes that the Ashia sweater brings to anything it’s paired with. Crafted from chunky alpaca-blend fabric, this style comes in a slouchy oversized fit.Pink wool scarf vuitton

Dusty pink in combination with grey is always a winner. Make the most of your winter with the Logomania Shine scarf. In a soft, warm blend of wool and silk with lurex for shine, it is adorned with an oversize version of the iconic Monogram pattern and is finished with long fringes. Available at Louis Vuitton.

Gucci shoes pink

Last but not least: Gucci shoes. You love them or you hate them. It took me some time to love them. At first, I thought they looked a bit grannyish, but with the right outfit, they can be quite cool. Still debating if I will order the signature leather espadrilles or the suede pump. Anyway, you can order yours hereDusty pink tack

As an extension of our dusty pink obsession, you can find matching equestrian tack for your horse. These dusty pink collection by Equestrian Stockholm is the perfect color match for your grey or white horse.

Enjoy your shopping but be aware; you don’t want to look like Barbie :).

In the world of designer fashion brands, it can be overwhelming to keep track of the latest it-bag of the moment. As Paris Haute Couture Week Spring 2017 is winding down, it means two things: fall 2017 shows are just around the bend, and a lot of notable people carried notable handbags in Paris over the past few days. We’ve tried to manage our spendy feelings – let’s call it damage control – and did our best to find an affordable alternative for one of the most wanted it-bags of the moment. Oh, and…with an equestrian twist.brown bag blauw black jacket leather pink pompomThe Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis (left) and the Saint Laurent College bag (right).
