Her Looks, TheGirlAtFirstAvenue

The day I wore pink.

March 7, 2012
If there was one color that I’ve never liked much my entire life, that’s pink!*long pause ‘coz I can literally feel all your horrified stares*

But I’ve always disliked the color for some reason. Almost my whole life, black has been my favorite color or my go-to color, and after I started style blogging, I pretty much started embracing all colors – except pink. There are a few shades of pink that I don’t mind wearing like, extremely-light-almost-looks-like-white pink or pinks-that-are-almost-coralish-orange. In fact purple has always been my substitute for pink.

So for someone who dislikes a color this strongly and for so long, I must have been freaking out of my mind when I bought these pink pants. I honestly have no idea what went through my mind when I bought them (online). I only remember thinking that they looked quite good (??) and since the time they’ve arrived home in a neat package, they’ve been sitting in my closet all wrapped up and still in their cover. Every time I open my closet, I look at them dully hoping to utter some stupid spell like “Sunshine daisy butter-mellow, turn this stupid pink pant yellow!” and change its color!

And then I thought.. what the heck??! When I can carry off a scorching pair of red pants with such panache, why can’t I carry off pink? I mean technically it is supposed to be THE COLOR for girls (who ever set that stupid “rule”)

Anyway… I feel it looks good. On its own it looks nice but not nice enough to make me like pink. Yet!

    Pink was once upon a time my favourite color. And then black happened to me.

    But I have to say I like you more in this pink than in the *cringes in apprehension* red pants, Chandana.

    Some shades of pink I like, but the one you're wearing is almost like the pinkest pink of them all. It is a difficult colour to carry off, I must say the pants look very good on you ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply The Dainty Dolls House March 7, 2012 at 9:50 am

    You look fantastic in pink!! Love those!! Looks fantastic with the stripes. I hear you on pink, I hated the colour growing up, everything was blue or black for me to wear. But, I've come around to the colour and have stuff in it! It does suit you very much!! Hope your week is going well doll! ๐Ÿ™‚

    How i love the pink! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Reply Spaceman Spiff March 7, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I used to hate pink too. Not so much anymore. Since I'm dark, I've always felt that pink won't suit me. But now, if the dress treats the colour well, I'll go for it. I mostly go for the dark, almost fuschia pink.

    This combo is good. The black and white of the top kinda breaks the bubblegum-ness (I didn't know what other term to use :P) of the pink.

  • Reply Carrie March 7, 2012 at 10:40 am

    Hmm … like you Iสปve never really been fond of pink, but I have to say that pink is gorgeous on you! It plays so nicely off the bold black and white stripes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Tangerine March 7, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Black is like forever.
    But pink doesn't always have to be bad either.I mean how can colours define anything…its just a color like any other color..Anyhow, nice match.

  • Reply Cee March 8, 2012 at 3:01 am

    I don't think I feel quite as strongly about pink as you do, but I do tend to avoid wearing it – I haven't quite pinpointed the reason why. But if you can conquer your aversion to pink and wear it so beautifully, we you do – these pants fit you like a glove! – then I can do it, too. Looks like it's time to add a little pink to my closet ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pink didn't only creep to your closet. I'm not a particularly big fan of the color but about 20% of my closet is pink. It's weird but before I realized it pink took over my wardrobe!

    I'm glad you gave the color a try since it looks great on you!
