VIVO Hot Pink Dress

Enjoy a burst of pink for spring

I am clearly obsessed with pink, as it has been one of my favorite colors since I was a little girl. And I can’t think of a better color to wear as we slide (finally!) into spring and all its wonder. Hot pinks are an instant pick-me-up, but so are the more subtle variations of the color. That’s why many bakeries package their goodies in pink boxes. The hue naturally boosts the spirit and also makes us crave sweet things.

In the fashion world, Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli (Coco Chanel’s arch rival) introduced hot pink to western tastes in 1947. In fact, I am reading a biography about Schiaparelli right now. And, yes, the book jacket cover is pink.

The many interpretations of pink in Get Dressed! Boutique are so gorgeous. And pink can be paired with so many colors: from white and taupes to navy and, for the bolder fashionistas, reds. Or try pairing any shade of pink with a chunky necklace from VIVO (seen in photo).

Regardless of your preferences when it comes to pink, you must admit the color is an instant reminder of pretty Easter baskets, brunches, greeting cards and bonnets. Happy Easter and Passover!
