See You Next Year!

Happy New Year's Eve! 2010 was a great year for pink and orange. There have been fabulous clothes, amazing home decor, and lots of adorable items for kids. Let's hope there is even better stuff in store in 2011!

See you next year!

Smells Like A Winner

For Christmas, my mom (oops, I mean Santa) gave my Twirl by Kate Spade in cute pink and orange packaging. Now I SMELL pink and orange. Fantastic!

There's a Wocket in my Pocket

Jud's dad gave me a pink and orange Wocket for Christmas. Haha!


She's pretty cute!

Clean Sweep

While in Texas for the holidays, my dad rented a carpet cleaner and we cleaned my pink and orange area rug. I'm not currently using it, but it was pretty dirty, so I wanted to get it nice and clean before storing it away. It went from beige to white, so I'd say it was a success.


I got the rug from PBTeen about seven years ago for my sophomore dorm room. They still carry it. Initially it shedded like crazy and I had to vacuum on a daily basis, but once it got its first deep cleaning, the shedding stopped.

Upcoming Update

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Santa was good this year, and he brought a lot of pink and orange my way. I'm hoping to take some photos and get the images up this week. In the meantime, stay warm!

Unseasonable

Is it cold where you are for the holidays? Because where I am, it is WARM. Like, these cute slip-ons from Kate Spade don't seem totally inappropriate.

These adorable sweater ornaments weren't very well sourced on I Suwannee, but I wanted to share anyways.

Extreme Makeover

Pink + Orange has a brand new look! Jud has totally redesigned the blog, and I love it! He's working on his MFA in graphic design, and I've asked for him to do this for me during his last 3 quarter breaks (because he's too busy with projects when he's in school). Obviously it took some time, but it was worth the wait! It's better than what I could have asked for: the mark of a good graphic designer. The trees at the top are so cute. Thanks Jud!

Dollface

As a child, I collected Russian nesting dolls, and my parents would (and still do) display them in the living room.  So I'm a fan of the recent nesting doll trend.  Like these ornaments from Urban Outfitters!

For whatever reason, Vera Bradley can be divisive.  I know plenty of people who love it, and I also know people who can't stand it.  Either way, here are a few of the many pieces in the pink and orange "Loves Me" pattern.

Dopp kit:

The Big Chill

It may be getting chilly outside, but it's nothing compared to how cold it must be in Aitkin, Minnesota.  Apparently, every year there is a contest on the day after Thanksgiving where people decorate their fish houses for a parade.  Here's my winner:
