Quintessential Bohemian…(images)

My girlfriend, Nikki, is one of the most beautiful people in the world.  Why?  Because she is more beautiful in spirit than even her most glamorous of modeling pictures.
 Nik is a mother (I know, unfair, right?), an experienced professional, a friend, sister, daughter, confidante, an artist, a pioneer, and – literally – a model.  Some of my favorite images of Nik reflect her artistic side.  She encapsulates the spirit of a true bohemian more so than Mary-Kate and Ashley could even imagine.  Not to mention, if she wanted to, she could drop-kick you to the ground before you can count to one.  Undeniably one of the prettiest of pink ponies!!

(One of my gorgeous girlfriends is quite particular about what her company wears – as she has every right to be)
…so I turn to my famous buddy, M. Bay, and say, “so…did you also find the animation in Avatar a distraction to the forbidden love story?”

I adore the simplicity of these cards.
I thought of my beautiful friend, Bridget, after seeing a bright yellow card with a gentle reminder to: “Shine”.

Rare Antique Buttons…

Wishing for a new suit, but too smart to spend hundreds of dollars?  Ideas:

1.  add beautiful one-of-a-kind buttons to your existing suits.  (i.e. these antique brass buttons are beautiful agains a simple navy jacket)
2.  No time to hunt for vintage buttons?  Got bad taste?  We can help…info@myprettypinkponies.com

How not to be a walking cliche this Spring…

(i.e. be open to viewing silhouettes, fabrics and colors that are not your ‘go-to’)

(do not accessorize with farm animals)  
I’m not suggesting to wear images from billboards verbatim…but exposing oneself to something seemingly less familiar can help you cultivate your personal taste while allowing yourself to feel comfortable wearing a variety of styles.
