My OOTD Then – The Sheer Pink Satin Coat

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

October, it’s that time of the year again – the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you have read my post last October, you’d know what Pink Ribbon Month means to me. Therefore I have decided that I will dedicate at least the first post in every October to wearing pink, which, hopefully, raise the awareness of Pink Ribbon, our continuous journey to fight breast cancer.

Today’s Outfit-of-the-Day, also known as OOTD is back to the ’90s when sheer fabric was in trend. If you have seen the 1992 black comedy Death Becomes Her, you might remember Meryle Streep as Madeline Ashton who had a sheer pink coat (It looks more like purple in the below image BUT it’s pink!) which is similar to what I wore in the above picture… Well, perhaps my sheer pink coat was inspired by hers?!!!

This sheer pink satin coat is still hanging in my wardrobe. In my next post, I’ll show you how I bring this ’90s outfit to 2016!
Meanwhile, let’s do what we can to fight breast cancer: purchasing a Pink Ribbon Pin; make a donation; host a Pink Ribbon BreakfastΒ and/or join a charity fundraising luncheonΒ or ball…
I truly believe that we can make a difference.

  4. What fun! The sheer fabric is lovely. I bought a vintage salmon pink velvet coat (cooler in nyc) — more 1960’s/70’s – but the color of Breast Cancer Awareness and of the moment. XO

    1. Wow~ A vintage salmon pink velvet coat! Sounds fabulous!!! Yes, velvet is so in right now AND it’s pink – perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness month! I’d love to see you blog about it! XO

      1. I bought the coat online — it’s a children’s larger size, but it works for the season of velvet. Thank Goodness.

  10. I remember that post Viv. It really touched me. As for your October post this year, I love how the color just pops out of the photo, wow!

    1. Thank you Sanne, I’m glad that you like the photo. The truth is that, the film scan result shows this old picture has been discoloured, I thought that the best way to ‘save’ it is to correct the colours of the ‘subject’ and do a ‘colour drop’ on the background.
      Many thanks to Kent who delivered an amazing job!

  11. You look amazing and very beautiful, that color suits you well.

    1. I’m happy to hear that! Thank you Monica & Carolina. X

    1. Thank you for your wonderful feedback. Stay tuned for my coming post as I’ll restyle this sheer coat and bring the look to 2016! X

  13. You look lovely! ❀
