  34. Brittany says:

    Hey! Can I ask you where the blouse is from with the red lips and high pony tail that you said you are working with Piperlime? Thanks! Love the pattern!

  35. Jess says:

    Glad the La Mer doesn’t break you out. All of their formulas made my skin break out. You should really read this article about 1£ Nivea cream that performed better than La Mer in dermatological scans! You could save on moisturizer (if it also doesn’t break you out) & have more $ for clothing ;)

  36. Emily says:

    Your Instagram is a constant source of inspiration for me — I love it! XO

  37. Michelle Manfredo says:

    Hi Rach!
    Love your blog so much, your the cutest thing! I have the LaMer moisturizer also but I find it too heavy to use on my face and I’m afraid I will break out. Do you use it on your face? Have you had any problems with it? Should I try it?
    Thanks so much,

    • Rachel Parcell says:


      I use it on my face. The lady who helped me said it’s specifically a facial moisturizer. A little goes a long way so I don’t put a ton of it on and I use it morning and night. I know everyone’s skin is so different but it works great for me. Which moisturizer do you have?

  38. You post beautiful photos, loving your feed.

  39. So glad I found you on insta, love following your blog on the go!

    Hi Rach! Totally love love the chairs-can you tell me what fabric and finish you chose-would love to do these in my room as well. Thanks!!

  42. Alexandra says:

    Hi! I love your house and your style! Can you please tell me where are your dining chairs from? Thanks!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
