Pinky and the Brain.

I have always loved the color pink.  In college, my brother and one of his best friends drove down to visit and I put them to work painting my room a bubblegum pink color.  (They joked that they would stencil a Ralph Lauren polo horse in the bottom left hand corner of my bedroom.  Let’s just say I was going through a hyper preppy phase, with popped collars, madras, and oxford mainstays in my day-to-day wardrobe.)  I cringe a little bit remembering that I lived in a Barbie-pink room for a full year, but at least I had a point of view.

I have ventured away from pink since marrying Mr. Magpie, developing a new appreciation for grays and orangey-reds in particular.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t still gravitate towards pink — especially when coupled with gold — and, if I had my druthers, I’d probably have more pink in the house.  Below, a few items that hearken back to my days of rose-colored everything:

+Rose cocktail napkins ($265 for 8);

+Smith and Cult nail polish ($18);

+Valentino Rockstuds ($995);

+Rebecca Minkoff sunnies pouch ($75);

+Brass “love” object ($29);

+Mason Pearson brush ($110);

+Aerin gold comb ($40);

+Caitlin Wilson pillows ($65+ each);

+Blush blouse ($168);

+Edie Parker clutch ($1,495);

+Makeup brush set ($148);

+Charlotte Olympia heels ($795);

+Mini-dagger earrings ($25);

+YSL clutch ($681);

+Veuve Clicquot Rose ($60);

+LePen set ($22 for 12).
