Ever since the CFDA awards (Council of Fashion Designers of America) a few weeks ago, all the magaines have been on about is Rihanna's very see-through dress. Rihanna was honoured with the Fashion Icon Award this year, and accepted the award wearing a custom made dress by designer Adam Selman. The dress, in a dusky pink hue, is completely sheer, and has been decorated with over 200,000 Swarovski crystals. Wowzers...!
The dusky pink hue has been on trend all of this year, but it really had a boost this Spring and will most likely stay for the rest of the Summer. Here is a photo taken of Miley Cyrus rocking a dusky pink shoulder bag just a few days ago as she arrived for her concert in Amsterdam. Not that I'm a fan of Miley Cyrus, but I absolutely love this bag, and now I'm on the hunt for a dusky pink bag myself.
What do you think of these beauties?

I seriously don't know what's wrong with me! I've never before in my life liked pink, and you never ever used to see me wearing it. But this year it's different. The dusky pink hue (which is barely pink really if you compare it with the usual bright pink we're used to seeing in fashions) has completely wrapped me around its finger, and I'm hooked.
Just look at me! I'm even wearing dusky pink shirts, skirts, nail polish and eyeshadow nowadays!
It's become a bit of a guilty pleasure lately... but maybe it shouldn't be guilty, but just a pleasure?
