I’m not sure when my love affair with pink began. It certainly had nothing to do with my parents. I didn’t have many pink things growing up nor a pink room. At seventeen, I decided to cut all of my hair off boy short and dye it blue. This color was hard to maintain, so I opted for pink instead. Ever since then, this color has been my happy place. It hasn't gone any farther than my hair or closet, although today I get to live vicariously through my daughter who has a pink room. I can't imagine why it has been so gender specific or feared by so many. Invite a little pink into your life, and you may be surprised by the jubilant feeling it evokes. Include the incredible range of pink into your 70's or western inspired dressing this season whether muted or shocking.
