Fashionably Pink

The perfect transition to warm weather dressing: a pink wool crepe suit with luscious matching fur cuffs. Pops of black and white accent this smart suit worn by Monolithic Studios' star Miss Gene Marshall. Accessories include black gloves and a pearl-handled walking stick from Ashton Drake, hatbox from Robert Tonner's Brenda Starr Collection, and a fabulously dramatic tilt hat from The Couture Touch. Cocoa Crisp Gene Marshall is from Integrity. Click HERE for instructions on making a variation of Miss Marshall's hat.
