cherry pink

When the ladies Megan and Nora of Two Birds Boutique
choose an outfit to inspire a look.

Here's my version of the look.
To see how others styled it
go to:
inspiration monday: cheek to cheek.

Today's inspiration is:
Drew Barrymore
Did you see Oprah's Next Chapter with Drew Barrymore?
It aired January 20, 2013.
I thought it was super.
My guy and I bleached my blouse.
It was red when I bought it.

We saw this sign on our road trip, while in Texas.
I don't know why I found this amusing.
We all know I'm easily entertained.

My paisley dress was thrifted.
This was the first time I wore it because every time I put it on, I didn't like it.
It's now in the donate pile.
 I think that makes 3 dresses in 3 days I'll be donating.

Cherry Waves  is my favorite song by Deftones.  I can't tell you how many times I've played it, especially in the summer of 2008.

My Cherry Loves

* cherry is my favorite pie

  1. I think you did a great job with this challenge
    You look way better than Drew and I love the monochromatic look

  2. Love that bleached blouse OMG!!
    And love the whole cherry vibe :))))

  3. My youngest nephew just started preschool the other day. He'll be 3 this october. Where does the time go?

  4. channeling the phsychedelic 70s.. groovy!

  5. wow, you and your man did such a great job with that shirt! I love it! and I think your outfit is way more better than the original one. oh and I should donate some clothes too!

  7. my friend Ted! I miss you!
    Ted I love everything I've seen here, and I love how they inspired ... I'm also in love with sky in these photos of the children in this field .... gorgeous!

  8. Okay, of all the things on this adorable post, I'm going to say... I LOVE CHERRY PIE! We had a tradition in our family...a Blaine would always find a cherry pit in the pie. I use to find the pit on a regular basis and my little brother got really upset at me one time. He actually kinda yelled "I wanted to find the pit! You always find the pit!" It was hilarious.

  9. look at you so springy!!! i love you in pink!

  10. That bleached blouse looks so cool! I love it!

  11. I love how your bleached blouse looks! It still has so much color but it's got a really awesome watercolor look to it, almost like the silkscreen fabric painting with salt thrown on them look, it's gorgeous and so different! This was a really hard inspiration outfit but I like how you went in the other direction with the colors, the pinks look so pretty and flattering on you. :)

  12. This monochrome with patterns is brilliant ! I love your artwork, very cosmic !

  13. such a pleasure to read through your wonderful post! I adore your beautiful dress!! and if I think of cherries I see my mom and me standing under a cherrytree and eat and spit and eat and spit till there is no cherry in reach ;) we both love cherries so much ;) greez from Conny

  14. i really like your interpretation on Drew Barrymore's look and i love that you bleached your blouse it looks really cool.

  15. Aaaa, I totally remember Cherry Valance from the Outsiders!!! Hey, you did a really funky interpretation- totally has the fun of Drew's look! Love the inspiration of that Cherry sign- how bizzarre- I'd laugh too!

  16. love drew barrymore...i'll have to check out that interview! great look...and how cute is that little nephew!!

  17. Teddi! Those boots! I love the ribbon running through them in a lighter hue; it ties together so nicely with the rest of your outfit. I'd say you look like a tall glass of water but I think a tall glass of cherry cola is more appropriate!

  18. I love how you even get the poses down pat! I haven't seen Drew on Oprah, but I love her. She just seems like someone who'd be fun to hang out with.
