K/R: Zara pink moto & vest UPDATE

I seem to be a bit of a forum hog this week. But you see, while browsing the Zara site, this Zara jacket jumped out at me, and Karymk's enthusiasm was catching. 

So I ordered it. 

I would like to hear your opinions so I'm not going to say anything. 

Also up for review, a quilted vest. This is for the mountain trip. I already own a Land's End down vest (which would be a lot warmer, I suspect -- but also less fashionable -- you can see it here.

I tried this one on in the Toronto store a few months ago and kept thinking about it, so here it is. There's a hood in that collar. The blue raincoat fits overtop (giving me double hoods -- not sure that's terribly useful, but oh well.) I can layer sweaters, jackets, etc. underneath -- the fit is roomy enough. 

UPDATE: 

I got cold feet and sent the LOT back  -- including the vest. The vest I feared would not provide real warmth (and it is quite heavy due to hardware-- so not the best travelling item). And the jacket really did feel  "Peptol Bismol"  to me -- it's a shame, because IRL it is just a fraction "off" for me, and as an outer layer vs. an inner layer I just don't want to keep it. Not at that price. (The J. Crew tee is also imperfect -- in the "too strong/ too neon" direction vs. too warm/ flat ...but it's mostly worn under a topper and in summer -- when my skin will have more warmth -- so I was more willing to compromise there.)

But I LOVED the style and hope Zara will reproduce in a different colour -- sometimes they do that, with small variations. 

I also sent back the North Face raincoat from the other day. It is really good...but....not inexpensive. And I still have a waterproof rain jacket that I can use for now in the mountains. True, it's more obviously gear and it's less versatile. But it's actually more practical for hiking, even if I don't care for the colour (a hot pink that -- once again! -- isn't "my" pink, but is "passable.") 

Meanwhile, I can look for another at my destination, where gear stores are thicker than spruce needles on the ground. 

I have decided to shop for: 

  • Waterproof rain coat (if needed)
  • Swimsuit
  • Indoor running shoes
  • Backpack

AT my destination, to save myself from having to carry it all there.  :)   Prices will be the same (or less) and I don't have to make a hasty decision. 

Thanks for all your help with this -- the jacket was close, so close, but not quite right. I am learning PPP. :)

    The moto looks great on you, and you look so happy in it, I'd have to say Keep! Having said that, I will say it is very pink and if you love pink, then it's easy, if you're on the fence, well, then I don't know as I'd have to really love pink to wear it often. It looks way better on you than on the model.

     I also like the vest (esp. for the purpose) and think I'd keep it too.

  • carter replied 6 years ago

    The pink moto is gorgeous on you! Is it itchy? How do you feel about the quality? The sizing? Feeling like I'm going to have to have this one too.

  • NDMom replied 6 years ago

    That pink color is wonderful on you!  Keep!

  • kellygirl replied 6 years ago

    Adore the pink moto the way you have it styled. OMG, so fab on you! KEEP!

  • AviaMariah replied 6 years ago

    That shade of pink makes your skin glow!  It looks like the fit is okay too from what I can see so I say keep.  If you've been thinking about the vest for a couple months then it is probably worth a keep too.

  • rabbit replied 6 years ago

    The pink color is GREAT on you, you look like you are glowing from within.  Does it fit your style self-image?  

    The quilted vest looks fine too, nice shape.

  • merwoman replied 6 years ago

    Your smile says it all - this is gorgeous on you! How beautifully feminine for the urban prince! Vest is great - will be very useful and it looks stylish - double bonus!

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Okay. Thank you all for these comments. 

    Here is the thing. The photos do look pretty amazing, right? But in real life, I'm just not sure about the colour! 

    Not because I have anything against pink (although this is a lot of pink!) But I think this pink is actually a shade off for my complexion -- just a touch too warm. The photos don't show this, though, and the lighting situation here is not great, so I'm not 100% confident about my judgement. 

    I do know that I can be fussy about my pinks. Salmon is definitely no good. Blush can be good, but I need to be careful with it. This jacket is more bubblegum, but a slightly warmed bubblegum. And there is also something a bit unidimensional about the colour. Flat? I don't know the technical language, but it's not a complex colour, somehow. Though the jacket's texture helps to mitigate that effect. 

    I don't really own anything in what I think would be the analogous but slightly cooler colour. So I took pictures in two other pink tops for comparison in similar light (although even that changed in the few minutes when I was taking the pics...sigh...). The J. Crew tee  is actually too strong and neon a pink for me (but it works fine as an under layer with a jacket.) (#2) 

    The berry coloured one looks amazing IRL -- there's just no question. I pop it on and everything glows. Don't know if that is obvious from the picture here, though. 

    Hmmm. This is going to be a really tough decision. 

  • replied 6 years ago

    I really like the shape of the moto. The colour looks good in the photos.

  • Gigi replied 6 years ago

    Suz, the fit on the jacket is great. However—and I thought this even before reading your comment above—I do think that the shade is too warm for your skin tone. I feel like the two are at odds with each other. I myself do not wear pink well, so I am very careful about pinks. Having said that, I would probably be able to wear this particular shade of pink well, but I am a Deep Autumn and am located on the warmer side of neutral. I think perhaps you are located on the cooler side of neutral?

    I see what you mean about the "unidimensionality" of the color. It's almost like the color was just filled in by a computer program or something—very consistently saturated (not sure that's the right word) throughout. I know from reading books about quilting that solid colors can have the optical illusion of taking up more space, and I would say that this pink color would fall in that category, for whatever reason. It's not an unpleasant effect, but it certainly does exaggerate the "pinkiness."

    As for the vest, you are right, it is tons more fashionable than the one you already have! It does look a little bulky in the collar, but since there's a hood up there, that would obviously explain why. I think this is probably a good cross between form and function. I would vote keep, although I know absolutely nothing about gear-type items.

  • Mo replied 6 years ago

    Not reading ahead.  There is no doubt that pink is fabulous on your skin tone!  My question is if it's a fab fit for your wardrobe.  Does it play well with what you have?  Do you still feel very much like 'you' in it?  If so, keep keep keep!

  • rabbit replied 6 years ago

    I have run into this before too, because the weird thing is, in some lights pink with a bit of warmth/salmon is wonderful on me, and in other lights a cooler pink definitely feels safer.

    Can you test it out with no makeup on sometime?  Go out into a backyard on an overcast day, but not at dawn or dusk?   Look in a mirror, but also take photos if possible.

    The other thing is, sometimes I think I'm used to a certain kind of flattering color, like a deep dark cool color that makes my skin look pale but my eyes and mouth look dark.  But another color (even one slightly out of my comfort zone) can flatter in a different way.  Lavenders make my skin have more of a gold/tan undertone.  A bit of warmth in a red or coral pink brings out cheeks and lips in a different softer way than a blue-pink does (because it warms the skin around them too), but it's still good.

    Also some colors I can't capture on camera indoors, even standing next to a full-length window with no artificial light.  I have a shirt that always reads as cobalt blue.  It's not, it's most definitely deep purple with an indigo undertone.

    So sometimes you just have to rely on your eyes or family eyes.

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    I love the pink jacket on you. As long as it doesn't make you sick to wear it... Well, I had this fab pink suit, but eventually it made me sick to wear it because it was pink...

  • Lyn D. replied 6 years ago

    My immediate reaction was that your cheeks are glowing with this jacket!
    It does stand out though- is this partly what is giving you pause?

  • Eliza replied 6 years ago

    Suz- love the shape and idea of a pink moto for your wardrobe.  I do know what you mean about shades of pink.  A hint of coral and I am out.  Doesn't work for me, even when it is everywhere.  I think you should trust your gut on color, as computer screens aren't great for that.  Happy deciding. 

  • viva replied 6 years ago

    I will be no help. I thought that pink was amazing with your skin.

  • Marmee replied 6 years ago

    I really like the cut of the jacket, but am not sure of the pink.  I had the same reaction when Karymk first posted a picture of the the moto.  Could be my monitor, but in any case, color preferences are very subjective.  If I owned the jacket, I'd admire it, but probably wouldn't wear it much.

    The vest looks great!  Definitely a keeper.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    I love the jacket on you in the photos but you need to be the ultimate judge. If you returned it would you have regrets or relief?
    I also think the vest looks great and will serve you well with the big bonus of layering possibilities. Vote to Keep.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    First the vest - it's perfect for what you need and looks really good. Keep.

    The jacket - the fit is beautiful on you and the color pretty...BUT... I somehow don't see you in this color. Will it work with your wardrobe the way you want it to? Does it make you feel good inside? Before making any rash decisions, try it in a few outfits and see what you think. This could either be your wildcard or a closet orphan.

  • Ginkgo replied 6 years ago

    You look fantastic to me with the pink blazer, and you've styled it in just the right way to get a lot of wear out of it -- just throw it on over jeans and a tee (looks good with your sandals too).  I'll admit I like pink, and this is not a ridiculous shade of "children's clothing pink".

  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago

    Are you trying to trick us? Your smile in the pink makes me want to say YES! But I am irrational about pink right now as I'm loving it in most shades. 
    The vest works well for your needs and is fashionable indeed. I trust you to wear it well under your toppers etc...  Keep. 

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Suz, the moto does look good...but I would trust your instinct . If you think think this pink color is not the best for you and you are not in love with it enough to ignore this fact then back it goes.
    The vest is pretty good for what you need it for .

  • Glory replied 6 years ago

    The vest is perfect for your month long trip to the mountains. I think you will be really pleased when you are there - and it is not at all like a down vest.
    I love the pink jacket-- style, fit and colour. I vote pass though because you have some doubts and my sense is that you should love it right out of the gate. 

  • unfrumped replied 6 years ago

    It IS a slightly peachy pink. You still look good in it, but maybe you are feeling "picky" (in a good way)  and focused enough to say, this is not necessary and there might be a better color  or fabric.  You might try it with other colored  items you might consider wearing with a moto--this color likely will not play as well as a cooler pink or berry. So, hmmm!
    Remember your pastel pink blazer tryout? How does this compare? If you had the perfect cool pinky-berry blazer would you prefer that?

    I had a recent experience in which I'd been wearing some tops in some shades of blue,  some more pastel type pinks and some of my "moonbeam" items --as an intended stretch to try some new colors and combos, and then I had a day when I wore   an older berry-fuchsia top and wondered, why am I wearing those other colors?

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    Hm from the photos the pink and berry read similarly toned to me; so if the berry works I'm inclined to believe the pink does as well. Could it be a saturation issue? The pink does have a bit of white in it. I rather like the flatness of the color :)

  • cciele replied 6 years ago

    Quilted vest is good!

    I love the cut of the moto. But color, such a hard thing to judge. Especially shades of pink. I'd go with what your gut says, how you feel when you are wearing it.

  • Karie replied 6 years ago

    Well, I'm probably not going to be much help because I adore pink. The berry colored top (#3) is absolutely the best color for you. Of the two pinks (#1 and #2) I much prefer #1. I think both #1 and #3 make your cheeks glow!

    The vest is perfect for what you need it for - much more current than the older one.

  • carter replied 6 years ago

    Well, I'm going to keel over if you don't keep it! The pink jacket and the berry colored top both give beautiful color to your face. The neon pink top is somewhat draining in the pictures.

  • Sara L. replied 6 years ago

    The pink moto looks really good to me, but sometimes colors don't photograph accurately.  If you don't like it that much, then you should send it back no matter how well it photographs.  How you feel in real life is more important than how the jacket looks in a photo.

  • Jeanie replied 6 years ago

    I like the pink moto on you.  Do you have someone that can help you judge the color IRL?  The pink of the tshirt does seem to be off and the berry tshirt looks great so those colors are coming through on the camera OK.  The vest looks great! 

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    Well, I'm not a big pink person but that jacket looks fantastic on you! The cut and color look spectacular, but only you know whether you will embrace this color in your wardrobe or not.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Thanks so much, all. I am hoping for sunshine tomorrow morning, and I will get myself outdoors and see if I can get Mr. Suz's read on on it. He is not a huge fan of pink so that creates a bit of a bias. But he doesn't outright hate it, and I think if I show him the photos and compare the various pinks in my closet he will be as objective as anyone can be. 

    What I LIKE about the moto (what tempts me to keep it): it's a moto! I have wanted a moto styled item for a long time and most are too "tough" for me. 

    It's more like a knit jacket than a blazer. Very easy to wear, comfortable, low-key (apart from the colour, LOL.) 

    Fit is spot on. This is consistent for me with Zara jackets. They are super easy of me to wear off the rack. 

    The fabrication weight is perfect for our cool springs. 

    Do I NEED this? No, absolutely not. I just bought two fantastic jackets. and have no necessity for this item. Would it add fun and zip? Probably, but only if I feel good in the colour. Hmmm. 

    Thanks again - you've all raised excellent points and made good suggestions. 

  • MsLuna replied 6 years ago

    Suz: the moto is a lovely colour on you! I'd say KEEP! :)

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    I like that the color softens up the toughness of the moto style for you. This is a VERY different jacket from the ones you just purchased. Just sayin'. ;-)

    Maybe some of my jacket shopping mojo rubbed off on you in Boston!

  • jackiec replied 6 years ago

    I think your skin positively glows with that jacket! You look so happy! I'm not good about colour analysis but my first impression is that your skin looks amazing from that jacket. Fit looks nice too :)

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    I love the cut and fit on you and truthfully the color but it is hard for me to assess color on my monitor. Waiting to hear from Mr. Suz.

  • Ariadne replied 6 years ago

    My first thought was that the pink was just a touch too warm.  Love everything about it otherwise, and I think the vest is great.

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Great vest!  I actually like the bulky but bold LE one, too, but, in your climate, 2 down vests would certainly not be overkill.

    As for the jacket,  it is an unusual shade of pink, but it is interesting, unique and  very modern and perfect in its fit.  I'm a "hot pink only" girl, but I find myself drawn to it.  It doesn't  seem too warm to my eye, but I'd want to make sure that the boldness of the pink makes you happy.  Your recent purchases have leaned toward neutrals and deeper tones.

  • Marley replied 6 years ago

    I've been looking at this jacket on line for quite some time and have thought that the pink looks like it has a warm base to it, but I was reserving judgement until I saw it IRL.  I soooo want a pink jacket - and it's sooooo hard to be PPP!  Let's see your pics in the natural light and then maybe we'll be able to give you a more definitive answer.

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    I really really adore you in the pink moto! Keep keep! it kind of strikes me as a 2014 version of your raspberry jacket.

    not a huge fan of the best. Reads very LL Bean to me.

  • Ingunn replied 6 years ago

    Well, the fit is perfect, and the style, too. My first reaction was that it's an unusual color for you. Colors are so tricky sometimes! However, in my experience, if I have any doubts in the first place, I don't end up wearing it much. How about you, Suz?

  • Neel replied 6 years ago

    I like the way the pink moto makes your cheeks glow! But I am not a color expert. And I seem to like the pink in 1 more than pic 2. It all now depends on how you feel about it.

    The vest of course fits well and should serve your purpose. That's a win for gear-esque wear :)

  • Deborah replied 6 years ago

    Suz, the jacket looks great on you. Lovely fit and great cut. For some reason I am wanting to see a softer pink. This is a deeper, stronger pink than I was expecting for some reason. I feel a softer, more blush tone, might be more versatile. However I may be swayed by having worn such strong tones in the 80's! I find it difficult to revisit where I have already been.

  • leopardluxe replied 6 years ago

    OMG, I love the pink moto on you. Please keep it! It makes your skin glow and the fit on you is divine!

  • Aubergine replied 6 years ago

    Hmmmm. I think the shape and fit of the jacket look great and the pink really brightens you up. I kind of see what you mean about the shade, though. This may just be my thing, but it's also hard for me to look at a jacket in that very bright pink (especially one with that boucle-y texture) without seeing a kind of retro, lady-who-lunches vibe. And I could be wrong, but I feel like that's not a look you usually go for. Although there's always something to be said for trying something different, right?

    And I vote keep for the vest! Looks like a nice combo of style and practicality.

  • Golden replied 6 years ago

    I think the jacket is adorable but I see the differences in the colors once you posted the other pink and berry outfits. Although the jacket is cute and looks great compared to the others, possibly not the best color, but it depends on what it looks like in real life. You wouldn't want a closet orphan, but if you love it? Tough decision.

  • Alassë replied 6 years ago

    The vest is fashionable gear; great purchase!

    I immediately liked the pink moto on you, but wondered if it was a touch warm for your wardrobe. So I can see both sides of the debate.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    How does the pink jacket look with your taupe suit pants?

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    Joy - what a fabulous suggestion with the taupe pants!

    Suz - I had to chime back in because I wanted to make sure you didn't misunderstand my previous comments. I think the jacket looks spectacular on you and you can definitely wear this shade of pink. It's beautiful with your coloring. My reservation stems from my concern on whether or not you will wear the jacket because of the color. But you look great in it :)

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Shannon -- no worries!! If this were the right pink, I would wear it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately the light is bad here today -- I am waiting to show Mr. Suz and will report back when I can! 

    Joy -- this pink looks awful with the taupe. That is one of my clues that it might not be the right pink for me. 

    It is fine with navy, white, cream, and black. Looks okay with some but not all of my blues. 

    But with the taupe? Ugh. The taupe is sort of a "muddy" colour, I guess. I would not call the jacket a "clear" pink, exactly, but a "flat" one without depth, and somehow the two don't marry well. 

  • Diana replied 6 years ago

    Hmm, I haven't commented on the jacket yet because I don't trust my judgement when it comes to this color pink. It is very similar to that pink leather moto I got sent by accident the first time I tried to buy the turquoise moto. Angie and some others loved it but all I could see was PEPTO. I knew I wouldn't wear it. (Unlike, say, blush, which I love the look of but still am not 100% certain is flattering on me.)

    FWIW, the fit is good and you do look pretty in the color, but... It sounds like you have a similar issue as me with the color. It doesn't sound like you want to wear it, you know? And while I'm all for stretching the fashion envelope sometimes, you've got to want to wear it first.

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    I keep checking back to see how you're feeling about this. :-)

    Pinks are tricky, and colors on a screen are not easy to evaluate, so I can see why you really need to consider this carefully.

    Yesterday I stopped in a Marshall's for the first time in ages -- my goal was a bit of gift shopping, but I also took a spin through the clothing racks (I did have an unexpected success, which I will start a separate post about!). There was a really pretty sleeveless layered top that had a hint of a tulip shape (perhaps great for someone with a straighter figure than mine) and the color was a bright mid pink. Not bubble gum, but something just a hint cooler and lighter, perhaps, and there was something oddly appealing about it. It brought back a flash of some sort of memory to me -- I must have owned something this color at one point in my life, but I can't put my finger on what it was. Have you ever had that happen? At any rate, it seemed like a pink I could possibly wear happily, even though I recoil from anything bubblegummy or too sweet.

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    The vest is GREAT.

    I also thought that the pink was a little warmer than what you would have typically gone for, Suz. But you've cooled it down really well wearing it with white - and ink or grey will do the same. I love it on you. Why not. It's a fun Zara piece that did not break the bank - and a fabulous colour vehicle. xo

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Thanks for chiming in, Angie. 

    I have now put it past Mr. Suz. And guess what? He is no help whatsoever. He likes the jacket and "doesn't mind" the colour. He said he could see that another pink might be better....but he thought this one looked pretty good. (This surprised me since he isn't a huge fan of pink to begin with.) 

    He liked the vest okay, too, but he is worried it won't provide any real warmth. He has a point on that score.  I may end up sending that whole Zara order back! 

    Well, still pondering, but I appreciate the input. 

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    ETA: and I did something I almost never do and pulled out my colours "wallet" (from my pre-YLF colour analysis) and lo and behold, there is a pink swatch almost exactly like this jacket. 

    Mind you, I do not vouch for the quality/ precision of this wallet. I think of the colours more as "ball park" indicators. I honestly don't think the person who put it together has as much colour sense as I do. But, even so. It's pretty interesting. 

  • rabbit replied 6 years ago

    The emotional reactions to pink are very interesting to me.  I pretty much love all pinks, but I don't think that really started until I lived for awhile in India and traveled in Nepal.   I think I started to think of pink as a strong and empowered color, a woman's color, and lost any previous Barbie/children's clothing associations.

    I think also it can pair well with more austere, androgynous, harder edged clothing and balance it out a bit. 

    Ultimately you have to go with your gut I think.

  • catgirl replied 6 years ago

    Omg keep! I'm not a pink fan but that jacket is such a great wild card for you and you are glowing in it.

  • Debbie replied 6 years ago

    I hope you keep the jacket. It is a way as Angie said to introduce a new color. You look radiant in the jacket. So I vote keep.

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    I think amount of effort you put into this pink moto proves that you really like it - so why not? Maybe it is your wild card after the orange pants did not work out?
    <enabling, enabling...>

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    UPDATE:

    I got cold feet and sent the LOT back -- including the vest. The vest I feared would not provide real warmth (and it is quite heavy due to hardware-- so not the best travelling item). And the jacket really did feel "Peptol Bismol" to me -- it's a shame, because IRL it is just a fraction "off" for me, and as an outer layer vs. an inner layer I just don't want to keep it. Not at that price. (The J. Crew tee is also imperfect -- in the "too strong/ too neon" direction vs. too warm/ flat ...but it's mostly worn under a topper and in summer -- when my skin will have more warmth -- so I was more willing to compromise there.)

    But I LOVED the style and hope Zara will reproduce in a different colour -- sometimes they do that, with small variations.

    I also sent back the North Face raincoat from the other day. It is really good...but....not inexpensive. And I still have a waterproof rain jacket that I can use for now in the mountains. True, it's more obviously gear and it's less versatile. But it's actually more practical for hiking, even if I don't care for the colour (a hot pink that -- once again! -- isn't "my" pink, but is "passable.")

    Meanwhile, I can look for another at my destination, where gear stores are thicker than spruce needles on the ground.

    I have decided to shop for:

    • Waterproof rain coat (if needed)
    • Swimsuit
    • Indoor running shoes
    • Backpack

    AT my destination, to save myself from having to carry it all there.  Prices will be the same (or less) and I don't have to make a hasty decision.


  • Mo replied 6 years ago

    I was wondering what you'd decide.  I had a color issue, again, with things being hot pink instead of bright berry.  I'm also returning.  
    Better to hem and haw for a few days and hand wring than stare at it in the closet for months or years to come!

  • pil replied 6 years ago

    Onward and upward! You'll find what you're looking for! I passed a Forever 21 today and nearly stopped in just to see if they had Jen A's blush moto - but I passed by :)

  • rabbit replied 6 years ago

    Just a note about gear, I don't know about in Canada, but the in US for me it's almost always cheaper to buy the same item of gear online with coupon codes etc. than in a gear store (after I've tried it on and it's fit well in a store).   If you have something that will work, I'd maybe make a note of the coat you liked and if it goes on sale in the future you can consider it then.

    If you were in the US I'd say try Sports Authority, not a gear store - more team sports, but they have big sales on NorthFace all the time.

    Also I think it's good to wait and see what the environment is really like, you will probably need something you didn't anticipate, and not need something you brought.  :)   Either way it won't matter and you'll no doubt have a great time!

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    I think it is a brilliant decision, Suz! Here I keep my fingers crossed for more luck in local shopping.
    Have a nice trip!

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Rabbit, great tips, thank you! I think maybe you have better options for online gear in the US than we do here -- here the prices are pretty standard everywhere (except for manufacturer's sales or store closeouts). BUT -- I actually live close enough to the border and have one of those US address thingies, so if I know what I want I can scout sales and order it and then just go pick it up.

    Meanwhile, you are right -- chances are I might need different stuff than I anticipate and now I have just saved a pile of money in case I have to make an emergency purchase! :) 

  • Gigi replied 6 years ago

    Glad you were able to make your decision and not look back, Suz! I always ask myself, If I buy this, will I want to see it in my wardrobe day after day? If the answer is no, then it's time to return. :^)

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Gigi, that's a great way of looking at it. And that's pretty much what happened. I stared at the pink jacket hanging in the closet and it just didn't sit right with the other stuff there. I'm a bit sad because style-wise it was a complete winner for me, and if the pink had been just a bit softer/ paler/ cooler it would have been exactly right. Ah, well.....
