Rockin’ Pink

Today Insta gals are mounting a movement #foreverfierce to demonstrate that old is fabulous…

Pink does not have to be ‘pretty’

Here I’m wearing an outfit in pink tonal colors…I love tone on tone, and I think that a dusky pink rocks.  I mentioned on Instagram that I remembered Biba, Mecca of fashion, in the late 60s and early 70s, situated on London’s Kensington High Street. More accurately I was incarcerated in a girls’ school in the middle of nowhere and resorted to begging my mother to buy (Yes you had to pay) the Biba catalogue for me. (Oh how I wish I had kept the 2 copies that I exhorted from my long-suffering parent.)

I did visit once, as a star struck teenager, and this color is one that remains in my mind as synonymous with Barbara Hulaniciki’s iconic brand.  I actually bought a long sleeved fitted tee which I wore and wore until it fell apart…no change there then 😉  Stella McCartney too, uses a preponderance of this color; I like to think that she was inspired by her mother’s wardrobe from this era.

I’m wearing a boat necked sweater, similar here and a lighter shade, here skinny jeans here and you can just get a peek of my lace cami here My biker jacket is a burgundy shade which compliments, similar here I’m wearing my black and burgundy boots from Balmain (currently obsessed and also gotta back up my cost per wear theory ;O) here but I’ll also wear these here with the outfit.  I’m carrying my Zadig & Voltaire studded box bag which is now right out of stock…but this one is similar and also lust worthy 😉 here

All these pieces are old, well worn and well loved.  On the cost per wear scale they were probably completely free ;D Similar here  and here and here  I’m considering buying this Givenchy shark tooth key ring and modifying it for neck wear 😉 here


That’s it for now folks, thanks for stopping by.  Sarah x

Baby Boomer speaks for itself, yes I am a woman of a certain age ;) Why Badass? I have Rock & Roll in my DNA, coupled with some Punk Attitude and a (Lovin) Spoonful of Hippie Chic. Altogether BABB ;O The blog is not intended to be age specific, or indeed age appropriate! It is more about my style philosophy. The blog is to help girls and women of all ages to become more confident in expressing who they are through the way they dress. Mine are style tips and tricks based on years of styling, and an extensive knowledge of the fashion industry. My shopping advice is suitable for those with a limited budget, those who are strapped for cash, and for the lucky ones who have cash to splash. Personally I mix it up, marrying high street with high end to achieve my unique look. I hope that you will enjoy my new blog, Sarah x
