The boobs of the girl in the dotted bikini made me laugh out loud. If they were pushed any higher, they'd cover her eyes.

OMG I want that trench coat SO BAD. Sigh.

zoe aka drinkupthefashion said...

i absolutely love this color.
i sometimes wonder what is the difference between magenta and fuchsia? i think fuschia is brighter and magenta is a bit darker, more purplier--but the colors are very similar.
i'm glad you liked that F21 dress. isn't it so cute? well...more like hot. :)

TheBeautyFile said...

How pretty...each and every last thing on this post! I love Coco Rocha...her red hair goes well with the bright pink!

HiFashion said...

Its such a pretty girly colour, but I am just so scared to wear it. Its too bright for me. Hopefully I'll manage to find a more subtle piece in this colour, possibly those shoes...

*Dith* said...

magenta is a very bold color but i think will look nice if worn right. I'm still a bit iffy about it tho because it looks a lil too much like pink. I love pink shoes tho. :)

Erika said...

That Notte by Marchesa Strapless Ruffle Dress is the loveliest thing I have ever seen. It makes me think of cupcakes and romance!
