Pink Flamingo

June 22, 2015

As a child, I loved to open the mirrored doors of my mother’s cupboards to touch all the pretty dresses inside. There was jewel-toned silk, ruffles, polka dots and black lace embellished with sequins. My favourite dress was a boudoir pink satin cocktail dress, strapless, with fans of tight pleats on the derriere. If Cinderella’s fairy-godmother cast a spell on a flamingo, this is the dress that would appear. It’s so feminine and flirty. “Do you still have the pink satin cocktail?” I texted my Mum this morning. I had visions of wearing it with tangerine ballerinas and a messy top knot to a wedding this summer. “Silk moirĂ©? I think I got rid of it in March.” Quel shame. Let’s hope its new owner loves it as much as we did.

p.s. I am aware that this is a Spoonbill not a flamingo, but the picture is too beautiful not to share.
