Wear Pink & Rob a Bank
Dear Secret Agents,
It’s Wednesday! Happy Wednesday. On Wednesdays We Wear Pink and rob a bank! As the British saying goes, Keep Calm and Wear Pink. Keep Calm and Rob a Pink Bank. I just did. I wore my beautiful art lace pink necklace and drilled into the bank. Errrrrr… my Vintage Pink Piggy Bank that is. I shook it first, but there were no coins. I knew I was in for the big buck. Paper money. Big money! Instead out came this beautiful illustration of my Cherry Blossom Mission made by the talented illustrator Lorena Balea-Raitz, the same woman behind the necklace I have on. That’s right, designer and illustrator.
So, here’s another recap: on a Wear Pink day, I rob a Pink Bank in the UK and get a Pink fashion illustration from Australia of my Pink spring outfit in New York?
Hmmm? – PINK, Connecting people? Nokia stole my tagline. Viva La Colour Revolution! Wear Pink! Pink to the People!
