Pretty in Pink….


Pretty in Pink

The closest thing to pretty in pink in your pad should be the retro-prom dress with lace and tulle stored in the deepest darkest confines of your closet.

There’s no shame is loving Molly Ringwald in the 1980s cult classic as she wrangles the self esteem of a bull into her 5’10 frame and debuts a thrifty gown fit for Cinderella with a budget, thread spools and materials seemingly ripped from Cindy’s mice.  As Andie Walsh, Molly throws materialistic and the rich whimsical ways of the suburban experience on its knees and in doing so lands the man of her dreams.

Twenty years later, Pink isn’t the same Aphrodisiac.  Too much pink in your apartment gives a guy a stomach shock so powerful he’ll be asking for the only branded product he knows in that color way, Peto Bismol. It is overly feminine and speaks desperately of domesticity.

A guy wants to think that you’re almost an uncommitted as he is and any sense of dating with exclusivity is hatched in his own bachelor brain. Let him think what he wants and make the space you live in reflect a neutral stance on dating.

This is not to say you should totally disregard all your love of pink. Used sutly like it can make a sensual statement and represent that part of your personality that doesn’t care what anyone thinks.

Think Pink, and really think Pink, the soulful rock star who has a cathartic approach to song and life. When it comes to relationships, so what??? Her soul comes first.

“I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And i don’t need you
And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight
I’m alright, I’m just fine
And you’re a tool”

Rock On Sister!  But remember if you’re going to decorate in Pink, your style may hit a bad note in his song book!
