Sometimes I wonder if the reason why I like pink so much now is because I never really wore the typical girly things when I was younger.  My mom and I have actually had this discussion many times.  I mean, I even had pink wheels once on my car a long time ago. 

When you’re young or at least when I was young my mom dressed me.  Most of my clothing was handmade by my mom.  My grandmother was a seamstress and my mom was a designer.  So, needless to say the sewing gene runs through my veins.  Anyway, I’m getting off track.  My clothing was very mature for my age because I’ve been wearing pencil skirts and mini skirts from a young age.  When I was little some people used to stop my mom and ask if I was a model.  Fashion really does make an impact.  I never really wore pink, I think I can count on one hand how many times I wore pink growing up.  I was my mom’s mini me, we even had the same outfit in one picture. 

With all of that being said, once I grew up and discovered how much I secretly loved pink this whole time I kind of went a little nuts.  Over my teenage years to really early 20’s I changed a lot of things to pink, from my pepto bismal walls, to my hot pink wheels, to even my hot pink hair.  I was getting it out of my system, well actually that’s an understatement.  I still am, because I still love pink, and if there is a choice in color, I pick pink 99.9% of the time.  Regardless I love the color pink, and of course ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEAR PINK!

  2. Love the pink stripes, makes a change from seeing blue stripes! Looks great with the vest over the top. I love your hair!

  3. I really love pink, it is my favorite color, yet I have NO Pink in my closet at all! My six year old daughter was the one that noticed it, and now it is so weird that I have no clothes to show off my love for the color. I do have a pink bedspread and bathroom, though. Does that count?!
