How to Shine in Dusty Pink
I would love to say that I styled myself especially for this location, but that would be a lie. We were on a location scouting trip for an up-coming photography job and we thought it would be wise to combine it with a fashion shoot. It just happens that we found ourselves on this rooftop carpark (via a five storey stair climb) which had been painted in beautiful pastels, including pink – which I happened to be wearing that day!
Dusty Pink is a colour which I’m a little undecided about. Sometimes it really appeals to me, sometimes I just steer away from it for quite a while. Apart from this leather jacket (from Zara a few seasons ago), I can’t think of any other pink fashion purchases in recent times. It’s such a beautiful colour but doesn’t always put me in the right mood. What makes dusty pink work best for me is to mix different tones and textures. This is what I’ve done with this outfit.
Starting of with a dusty pink leather jacket I acquired from Zara a few seasons ago, I paired it with a pleated skirt (also Zara). Pleats are so in fashion this season! I’m not quite sure what colour it is – peach, pink or rose gold? Anyhow, it’s gorgeous and has a slight sheen which glams up my outfit. The day was cold, which called for a natural coloured merino wool top and a pair of natural coloured ankle boots from witchery. My Oroton Forte clutch compliments the outfit really well.
Ok, so we had heard of this amazing spot for photography at to top of a carpark in the Docklands. Unfortunately the rooftop of this carpark was closed for parking. We had climbed some stairs to get there to check out if there was any available parking. The rooftop was empty, apart from a security guard who was at the opposite end of the carpark. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to snap a few photos while we were up there. Perhaps I was blending into the colours of the carpark really well. It wasn’t long before we were shown the exit and that was the end of our rooftop experience.
