It's pink, punk.

Once considered only a colour for boys, since it was close to the manly hue of red, pink is now firmly entrenched on the other side of the gender divide. I thought pink was horrid as a teenager (I'd give the former me an A for effort for wearing all that black in our hot and sweaty Queensland climate), but now I see there's a place for it, if it's done right.

Apparently in India, pink is like our navy blue. I'm not sure where I heard that, but according to my parents, who have travelled quite a bit in India, colour is big. Very big. Whether it's on your house or your sari, colour is the go.

  1. Beautiful photos! I was also a Brisbane "swampy", including the waist-length black hair (from a bottle) that I always wore down - not sure how I coped really! But now, with a little girl in the house, I've gone quite pink mad!

  2. I worked in the ice cream industry for years when I was young, and wore a lovely hot pink outfit from head to toe (yes, from the sunvisor to the socks!) It has only been in recent years that I have been able to return to pink after vowing to never ever wear it again! The right shade makes all the difference


What say you?
