Pink Fade Rabbits

Shades of Pink for the Fall Transition--Thursday, 9/29/16

YESSSSSSS.  More with the multiple shades of pink/burgundy/maroon.  Love it.  This is another stellar example of Jen's classic but a little quirky librarian style.


When I saw this outfit, I knew I had to try it with my new bright pink sleeveless blouse.  The other pieces are staples of my wardrobe.

Bright pink sleeveless blouse (thrifted, Target), $2.62/wear
Blue denim jacket (Liz Claiborne/JCP), $4.61/wear
Burgundy skirt (Nordstrom), $2.61/wear
Leopard flats (Nordstrom), $2.27/wear
Gold/pink peacock necklace (Target), $2.38/wear

Outfit total: $14.49/wear

As for the extraneous peacock pendant?  That's pure Sally.

Last weekend, I started watching the 6-episode British mini-series The Fades.  I can't remember who recommended it (was it you?) but despite some initial concern that it was too much like a horror story and less like a supernatural thriller (which is a fine but real line for me), I ended up liked it and not being scared.  It helped that from the beginning it looked so much like Fallout.  Abandoned derelict building, random dead animals, bad-ass ghouls, gunshots...that's all so Fallout.

Anyway, I'd been curious whether I'd have scary dreams that night (since I watched just before bed) but instead I had a dream that I had two rabbits in a cage in my apartment.  They were peering out intently from the cage and I said, "Sorry, bunnies, you can't come out yet."  (When I related this to Robert with the comment that I don't know why they couldn't come out, he said that I probably hadn't rabbit-proofed the apartment yet.  That sounds good to me.)  The rabbits were not Kate and Leo--they weren't even mini rexes!  Instead they were two very dark rabbits with black fur with chestnut undertones, very much like this pair.  I would watch scary TV before bed every night if it would guarantee pleasant bunny dreams!
Sleepy buns dreaming of keeping humans in a cage?

In other news...Gender-neutral school dress code for the win.

I did not recommend The Fades, but I did and do recommend the The Worricker Trilogy if you haven't seen it yet. In addition to its many other fine qualities, it has a charming "50 American actors" quality to it. (It's from the BBC, I think.)

Thanks for the reminder--I had forgotten the specific name of it.

Something about the overall style and tenor of it made me think you would like it.
