Pink Saturday - Shopping for Pink in Santee Alley

Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!

Last week, we went shopping in my closet. This Pink Saturday, I thought we could take a guided tour of Los Angeles' Fashion District, andgo shopping for Pink in busy Santee Alley. And since we're looking for pink things, let's go with someone who knows Pink - our tour guide, this lovely lady in her pink headscarf. First, some perfume at wholesale prices.

Our guide has an eye for spotting pretty things. Look at this cute strapless sundress, with a matching straw fedora!

Or this kicky sundress - neo-hippy!

But we're looking to glam it up. How about something elegant for a night out?

A beaded sheath, slimming and simple, yet glamorous?

Or something a little more exotic? Wouldn't this knock some socks off?

But perhaps you're the modest type, who'd prefer a tailored evening suit?

You can wear your high heels

Or maybe glittery sequined mules.

A hat completes the outfit.

But we're not done yet. Our guide beckons, there's more. Let's follow.....

Sexy lingerie - the final touch. So much to choose from!

Well, really, ladies. You can't get all dressed up and wear old underwear, can you??? Indulge yourselves! Let's go all out for Pink Saturday!

You're right, Glennis. This is a fantastic post - and shopping adventure. Truth be told, I love each one. Now, if only my body would fit in that hot strapless sundress. ;-)

Happy Pink Saturday.

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

You've made me think back to things I wore in years past... I'm much simpler now, but these do bring back memories.

Fun post:-)
