Call it Love

I had my toes painted in Essie's new Summer Resort Collection color, "Splash of Grenadine" and haven't been able to stop since. Call is rose, call it pink, call it mauve, call it love. Maybe I love it so because my room was painted this color when I was twelve, or maybe because it brings out the bronze in the palest of goddesses and has that certain something that distinguishes a signature summer shade. Let me tell you, I am not a pastel girl. I feel like Bree Van de Kamp when I sport that shit and I am not about that life.

Back to the beauty... ever since that fateful day at the nail salon, I have been dreaming about the color on my dresses, around my neck, painted onto my lips, adorning a skimpy bikini. The only bad news: I can barely seem to find it. This is what I did scrounge up off the interwebz.

Who'll Come a-Waltzing Matilda with me

So, might I say that I'm slightly obsessed with Australian fashion, well, all things Australian for that matter.

Hello. Alexandra Spencer, Heath Ledger, Portia de Rossi, ay yi yi. There's something so alluring about Oz-the remoteness of it all while still maintaining innovation and efficiency. The beauty of a country surround-ed by dangerous, deep-blue waters and surround-ing a vast, expanse known as the outback, is surreal. The landscape in and of itself is an unbelievable source of creative and fashion inspo. 

Told ya.
