"On Wednesdays we wear pink!"
Also "Banish the black, burn the blue and bury the beige. From now on girls, think pink!"It is Wednesday, and I am thinking pink.
This is my second vintage dress. It's from the 1950's and it reminds me so of the soft pinky peach dress that Chuck wears in an episode of Pushing Daisies (see below).
This lovely pink dress is my first entirely pink dress since I'm an adult. Pink is a colour I wouldn't really have gone for a while back because I thought it was "girly". Well, I still think it's girly, but I don't necessarily think that girly is a bad thing. Why does everything that has to do with women and girls sound negative? Why can't girly mean just what it means! And why can't "being a woman" mean that you are someone that identifies as a woman, and nothing else?!
I didn't mean for the post to become this, but things like these bother me! Why did I for so many years think that liking a colour was bad? Shame on me!
It's the illusion that girly girls are lesser than their counterparts. But you can be any type of girl or woman and still be equal to other girls and women (and men for that matter). Anyway, it should be that way. Be who you want to be. It's once again the patriarchy that has managed to poison how we think of women. The notion that girls/women that think or act like men should be better or worth more is a big problem! All girls/women should be able to be what, who, how they want to be!
"I am a proud feminist! And I'm quite the girly girl, I like the colour pink, I love bows and polka dots. I love to wear cute stuff and peter pan collars! That doesn't make me any less of a feminist! Everyone can be a feminist!
Everyone should be a feminist!"
Back to the dress. I bought this vintage dress from one of my favourite vintage sellers on Etsy, Jumblelaya. And I got loads of compliments wearing it to work. Someone asked me if it's new, and I didn't know what to answer. I said it was 60 years old!
It certainly doesn't look that old.

I'm sorry this post is such a mess, I just wrote what came to me in quite an inarticulate way.
Hope you are all doing well and and that you are being who you want to be without judgement from anyone!
