What I Wore | Barbie Pink

January 13, 2017

I finally made it to the pink wall!

Okay, I did it. I can quit my blog now and be content because after four and a half years of living in Los Angeles, I finally made it to the Paul Smith wall! Otherwise known as "That One Pink Wall on Instagram" the Paul Smith store on Melrose is a mecca for fashion bloggers and hip LA peeps in need of a colorful backdrop for their photos. 

Fun fact: apparently while on the premises of the Paul Smith parking lot, you are only allowed to take pictures with an iPhone camera. No DSLRs allowed. You can take normal high-quality pictures on the sidewalk side of the building, but not in the actual lot. Weird, right? They probably just want people to pay to use the space if they're making money off of their blog. #Capitalism

Anyways, some of these pictures are taken with an iPhone, hence why they may seem a little low-quality compared to my usual DSLR pics! 

It was a rare rainy day in LA when we shot this look, so I bundled up in my fuzzy faux-fur jacket from Forever 21 (I actually purchased it for my Halloween costume, but it has become one of my cold weather favorites since it's so darn cozy!) and donned an otherwise all-black outfit that would pop against the famous pink wall.

Furry coats have been all the rage this winter, and this look is a cool downtown way to wear a fur (or faux fur) jacket without feeling too over the top. Keep scrolling for some more fur coat outfit inspiration, and check out how yours truly styled the trend!

  5. That wall!! <3 Cute jacket! I wished I wore more pastels but I always tend to go for black jackets!


    1. Thanks for reading, Leslie! A pastel jacket (especially in a neutral-ish dusty pink) is a great pick if you're looking to add some color to your wardrobe.

      I definitely gravitate towards black outerwear too, but then I noticed I had no options when I was wearing a black dress or pants and didn't want to be totally monochrome. So obviously I had to add some pink! :D

  6. Nice post! This is a very nice blog that I will definitively come back to more times this year! Thanks for informative post. buy area rugs


I love hearing your thoughts! Thanks for reading! ♥︎Lindsey
