The Perfect Pink

It’s no secret I love pink! Like, really, really love pink. I’d go so far as to say it’s my signature color! It’s just such a cheerful hue, and flattering on most every skin tone. A pink top paired with a bright pink lip just brightens your whole face!

When it came time to choose colors and patterns for the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection, there was no question it would lean heavy on the pinks. But turns out, the tricky part is finding the perfect pink! We looked at countless pantone colors and swatches until we found the perfect shades of pink…not too sweet or too muddy, and not too red or too blue. But just right!

Then we wove it in to almost every piece, either in a solid, a stripe, or part of a floral. It’s not the same shade for all pieces (fabrics and dyes vary, so we adjusted it based on the item), but each is the absolute perfect pink.

I couldn’t resist throwing in this outtake!! I’m so grateful for Mr. SP….he’s kept me sane and laughing, and been the biggest helper and supporter through this entire process!

In fact, pink was such a prominent part of the collection, we used it to accent the tags that attach to each of the pieces!! I’ll admit, I bawled my eyes out the first time I saw these!!

Fun Fact: The pink for these cords was pulled from the pink in my website! We really did think about every last detail!

What do you think, did we find the perfect pinks? Are you a pink girl, too? If not, the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection is also chock-full of blues, greens, black, white, spots, stripes and florals! My hope was there would be something for everyone! You can find it all here, and if you missed it, I shared all my sizes in this post, and tons of outfit combinations in this post.

See you back here tomorrow for a big Dressing Room Diaries with Mama Sugarplum!

    Love everything, congratulations! I was browsing on the Nordstrom website thinking of ordering the v neck tee and joggers and I was looking at care instructions and both say hand wash which isn’t realistic for me life style. Do you know the reasoning behind this? Again great job and well deserved!

    What a GREAT post! It is indeed the perfect pink for everyone. I saw a guy w/the same shade of pink t-shirt yesterday. Even he looked great (I should have told him).
    The tags are so very cool. You considered every last detail of everything. Amazing, C!

    Hello! Dp you have a sizing chart for these pieces? The one that comes up on Nordstrom website ends at 14 and does not include the letter sizes.
    I’d like to know the chest size in inches for XXL and size 18.

    Thank you!

    I’ve been in between regular sizes and plus sizes my entire life. And I’ve finally started losing weight and have lost 34lbs. The nearest Norsdstrom to me is 2 hours away and doesn’t carry your collection! Talk about devastation y’all. Let me tell you, your style is so damn cute and classic, I love it! I want one of everything, but I definitely can’t afford to buy a variety of sizes in one thing at time… not to mention patience! (I’m sure you felt that that when waiting on the line!) We are in the generation of instant gratification. May I please get a size chart sent to me.
