Think Pink

People just don’t wear enough pink. That’s been my contention for many years and I won’t be dissuaded. I often hear people (even our beautiful model, Penelope) say they don’t look good in pink. I beg to differ. I think there is some shade of pink that will good on everyone. And is there a happier color than pink? You just cannot make pink frown; pink is a giggle, or at least a grin.

I just went to see Mary Poppins Returns and I noticed that in all the magical animated scenes, pink seemed to be a dominant color. At my eighth viewing of The Nutcracker at Warner Theatre, the last scene the stage was covered with beautiful, pink cherry blossoms (it is the D.C. version, after all). The famous ‘80s movie wasn’t Pretty in Green. Nope, it was Pretty in Pink.

This resort season, we have pink for now and pink for later; an amazing suit and dress by Veronica Beard that can take you to and through spring. If you get to pack your bags any time soon for a warmer climate, we have a wrap dress and shirt from Xirena that will add that little extra something to your wardrobe.

Give pink a try this spring and summer. We are getting so many more pink pieces delivered in the coming weeks and, admit it, pink just makes us all smile.


  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
