Shock it to me
Posted on February 12 2009
The Spring '09 Araks sets have started rolling in, including a new color for the Uma/Jasmine/Jacqueline called Shocking, and you can see from the photo above (inadvertently inspired by the cinematography in Doubt) that it is just that! This is hot hot pink, ladies and gentlemen, and it's just perfect for Valentine's Day. In spite of my earnest attempts at recession-appropriate fashion (jeans, t-shirts, lots of black, etc.) I am yearning for some color, particularly on these dreary Portland days. These sets are just the ticket - as a faux-brunette, I am a big fan of wearing just a splash of teal with an otherwise monochromatic outfit, so the Mare color suits me a bit better than the Shocking. The dash of green silk at the center really stands out and is perfect to wear under a low cut blouse....perhaps that one is more appropriate for a St. Patrick's Day gift? I'm always looking for excuses to buy lingerie, so why not!
