Design a Day - Day 11 (Juliana)

Confession: I have mixed feelings about pink. On the one hand, it is the quintessential and consequently trite color for little girls. I think life is more fun when it's lived thinking beyond convention. I am not saying to forgo convention just for the sake of it--but rather that we shouldn't let it limit what we consider to be possibilities. So, in a way, I don't like pink because there is so much out there for little girls. Then again, my little girl loves pink. And it's such a soft, gentle, feminine color, that I love her in it.

So, I was making these boots with fabric strewn about, and Mia was really adamant to incorporate pink. So, there you have it! Little leather boots with a touch of girlie pink.

These little boots are called Juliana. I have one pair, available here. They are made of tan suede, top lined with taupe damask fabric. They have the typical Joyfolie spat, and a trio of little flowers. These same boots would be great with yellow flowers or red... or a mix of colors, even.

Here are a few more pink photos. Pink Paris by Francoise Rachez.

Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose
From out night's gray and cloudy sheath;
Softly and still it grows and grows,
Petal by petal, leaf by leaf.

There was a time when I too had mixed feelings about pink. I thought it way to girly... who would take me seriously I thought to myself... but slowly and surely, pink grew on me and today, I am a proud pink lover :)
Love your blog btw :)
Have a happy Wednesday
