    I can’t get over how amazing that bag is<3 I'm in love!


  87. Clare says:

    I love those shoes, but they are sold out in my size now. I am going to London in a month and looking for cute but comfortable shoes to wear, any recommendations?

  88. seevn says:

    I really adore you, but I wish you would be more honest with your readers. I have been on the hunt with the black polarized raybans you post often about . The raybans you have are not the ones that appear on your nordies link. YES, They are 58 mm, but the ones you have in all of your posts have a silver or gold? mark on each arm, near the frame. The black metal on the framers is thicker than the one you linked up to, too. Your fans admiire you for your sense of fashion but also your honesty. I have been trying to hunt down your exact raybans for a while, but the one you link up to is NOT the one you have so that is very misleading. You are using affiliates like rewardstyle, and hurting their image as well. I hope u can be honest and not loose to many fans and followers and TRULY use affiliate programs ethically. ie If it is isn’t the exact pair- say “similar” I hope you are an ethical person, and fashion personality — I just really love your style and hope that you will provide the true link soon.

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      I had no idea those weren’t the same pair. They are both black ray-bans, they look identical to me and I thought I was linking to the same pair. I always tell my readers when I’ve linked a similar style :)

    You look stunning in that dress!! Comfy yet stylish!! GREAT!! xx

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!
