Pink Saturday - Candy Dresses


I love Pink Saturdays! Thursday it started snowing raining in NYC and on my way to grab the bus I walked through my building through Henri Bendel Store to cut through to Fifth Avenue to stay dry as long as I could and I look up and see this "Pink" dress made from candy wrapped in pink wrappers! Get out...I know! (sorry for all the exclamations) I stood in awe at the amazing talent and wondered who had this idea? As I was walking out the store I looked up and saw a dress made of pink and brown cupcake liners and one made with buttons and thread spools. From far away they look like plain dresses but up close you see the intricate details the perfectly placed items. I smiled as I opened my umbrella. It didn't matter how miserable the outside weather was anymore all this Pink pretties made me happy...Please get happy also and visit Beverly from How Sweet the Sound and some more Pink Saturday blog posts.

They wanted to be shown to all your blogger friends. Wow, is all I can say. How ingenious.

Hope the sun is shining.

I love those dressses! What a great view on your way to work. See, I'm a city girl stuck in the woods of Vermont and appreciate an interesting "dress" more than a tree. I knew it! :-) (let me out!)

Happy Pink Saturday, Grace.

That is just the coolest thing Grace. It's so hard for me to imagine someone cutting thru Bendle's to get to work when I live in the sticks/country. My daughter in love works for Ralph Lauren and she's always talking about the things she sees at work. :) HPS...Great post!!

Hi Grace

Wow--another New Yorker--so glad to meet you! The Bendel dress is great...I live on Long Island but spend much time in Manhattan as my son attends FIT. There really is no place like it! :0)
