M&J DIY Challenge ~ Pretty in Pink

A couple weeks ago I received an email from M&J Trim asking if I’d like to participate in a little DIY challenge. And with my vacation coming up I knew I’d have some free time to complete this mission …so I accepted the challenge.

A few days later a package arrived at my doorstep and I opened it to find a beautifully wrapped box of gorgeousness: ribbons, notions, pearls & trims all in shades of soft pink and peach and ivory. My very first thought was Pretty in Pink and was immediately reminded of Molly Ringwald’s DIY prom dress from the movie. The fact that she DIY’d it just sealed the deal for me and “Pretty in Pink” became my inspiration for this project.

…and in searching for the perfect movie stills from Pretty in Pink I found this little montage video/music by Aly & AJ …which is actually really cute. And considering Molly wore pink/peach ensembles in Sixteen Candles and Breakfast Club as well, the inspiration could really have been from any of them.
