Mattel launched the Barbie doll in 1959, but it was only in the late 1970s and 1980s that much of her wardrobe became a bright pink, known as “Barbie Pink.” Jeremy Scott of Moschino collaborated with Mattel on this Moschino Barbie (whose outfit is copied in fine detail from the pink leather ensemble seen below) that was available to purchase in the spring and summer of 2015.

Do you like to have nice things? I sure do. I saw this Hot Pink Leather Biker Jacket hanging all alone on a rack at Bergdorf Goodman. The little silver tag inside the neckline says Georgio Armani, so  I was afraid to look at the price tag. However, I did rub it between my fingers, and it was very soft, like a little baby lamb.

Even the back of it is insane looking. Want!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Satin Victorian Women’s Shoe

This Pink Satin women’s shoe circa 1858 is typical of the dainty, flat-soled slippers that well-to-do Victorian women wore as evening wear and to formal events throughout most of the 19th century.

The delicate natured of women’s footwear indicates that even when outside of the home, the ideal Victorian lady did not require functional or reliable shoes. As the century went on, flat slippers like these were replace by heeled satin pumps.

Product Review: Booty Shawl Fashion Hip Wrap

When it comes to rocking my personal style, leggings are an endlessly versatile fashion asset that I simply cannot do without. I pair them with a T Shirt for yoga, top them with a tunic and boots for the office, and layer them under skirts or dresses for added warmth in the winter. While feeling properly dressed in just leggings and a top is not an issue for me, there have been a few situations where I felt like I maybe needed a little extra “street coverage” when my shirt ends up being shorter than I had realized before leaving the house. In a pinch, you can always tie a sweater around your waist, but isn’t it better to plan ahead so you can feel confident and keep your outfit looking polished? Sure it is.

Booty Shawl Package

Enter the Booty Shawl: a lightweight, fashionable hip wrap that you can wear as a shirt extender or skirt-cover up over tight jeans or leggings anytime you want a little extra coverage that complements your style.  When I heard about the Booty Shawl, I immediately knew this was a fashion accessory that would not only be fun to play around with, but something that I could use right away to solve the coverage dilemma.

The ladies at Booty Shawl sent me over this Audrey Hipburn in Black Lace, which goes with practically everything my closet. This is what it looks like on:

So super chic! Audrey Hipburn provides the most coverage of all Booty Shawl styles. Low on the sides,  the  wide waistband can be worn rolled over to cover pockets and provide more tummy holding power or unrolled for more midriff shaping. Large kangaroo pockets stash cash or cards or so you can go hands-free.Throw this baby on after dance class and you’re ready for cocktail time!

Booty Shawl comes in three other styles. Check them out:

Lauren Bashawl

Lauren Bashawl is the newest girl in the Booty Shawl house; a direct response to customers who loved the wide 4″ waistband and wanted coverage for curvier hips. Her skirt is cut with greater easement to fit over more voluptuous hips, but still does the basic booty covering duty.

Booty Shawl Stella Draper-1

Stella Draper’s asymmetrical design allows for adjustments side to side. Slide it to the right for a little more leg reveal. Slide to the left for more hip reveal. Topped off with a simple elastic waistband, Stella provides coverage and cost control.

Booty Shawl Isabella Wrapalini

Isabella Wrapalini features a wide 4″ waistband which provides tummy holding talents. Crossover panels on the side of the legs provide great mobility for lateral movement. Ideal for dancers, prances and jumpers of joy. The secret waistband pocket holds essentials!

Each Booty Shawl style comes in an array of fabrics, colors and sizes (XS2X) and can easily be worn with any outfit you can imagine! Dress them up over skinny jeans, keep it casual over yoga pants, rock them at the gym over leggings, or wear it as a swimsuit coverup. The fashion possibilities are endless!

Bergdorf Goodman Department Store on Fifth Avenue is known worldwide for their stunning seasonal window displays, but all you have to do is step inside to see that this same visual aesthetic carries over to every inch of the store. I took these photos when my friend Lorrie and I visited Bergdorf’s after we had an amazing Afternoon Tea at the Plaza Hotel, which is just next door.
