Cherry pink coords

I will begin by telling you of a happy accident.

Some of you may remember my previous post about a hideous skirt I got from F+F. The colors were terrible, so I wanted to dye it another color. I wound up trying to dye it Rit Scarlet Red. The good news is that it worked. The bad news is that it is not really red, but more cherry pink. =^_^=; The happy part is that it looks cute like that.

But I've never had a cherry pink piece of lolita clothing before. I know that BABY and other brands make cherry pink items. So now what I need from you lovely ladies is to show me pictures of coordinates using cherry pink. :D

EDIT: Examples of things that are cherry pink colored. I don't own any of these pictures, so if they are your pictures, I apologize, and I hope it's ok to use them as examples. =^_^=;;

It's kind of a more reddened pink, unlike baby pink. Kinda like Fuschia?

Lolita Artwork

I am drawing lolita character designs of each different style- sweet, gothic, casual, etc. to make prints of and try to sell at anime cons.I wanted to get everyone's opinion on my first piece, please! This one's sweet-loli; my main concern is - are strawberries overused? Is everyone tired of seeing them? I want each character to obviously portray her certain style, and strawberries was the first thing I that popped into my head when drawing sweet lolita. (thank you to Ruin-HCI over on DA for the inspiration for this piece, your character designs are so cute!)

Places to work where you could wear Lolita?

So, I'm just curious as I've been job hunting lately, and while I have a job already pretty much lined up, I will again be looking later in the year as I'm moving back to Austin. This got me thinking...what kind of jobs do you think one could get that would have an environment where it was suitable to wear Lolita?

I was thinking certain high end independent little girl clothing shops wouldn't mind, as well as cute pastry shops? I'm sure quirky head shops wouldn't mind either. LOL. What do you think? Or if you wear Lolita to your job every day, where do you work?

*edit* PS: Obviously, a job is more important than wearing Lolita. :P xD Derr. I was just curious to see what kind of jobs that are out there where people HAVE been able to do it. ;)

Custom design/replicas

So, I could have sworn up and down that I'd found another source for custom replicas/designs that wasn't an individual seamstress, and wasn't Fan+Friend. I thought it might have been one of the Taobao shops, but I can't seem to find the information anymore. That, or I'm having a huge brain fart. >.< Does anyone know of anything close to what I'm talking about?

And yes, I checked the memories/search. Google search sucks, sometimes. :P
