In the Pink



Wearing: Meadham Kirchhoff X Topshop sweater, Emma Mulholland denim shorts, Atilin saddle shoes and cat amulet by ginette lapalme (etsy).

I normally don't wear all pink, nor am I the first in my age group to do it (see Pink Zoe Experiment) but I thought it would be fun. Plus it gave me an excuse to wear my cat amulet from Toronto artist Ginette Lapalme which I should wear more often to be honest. People certainly treat you differently when you wear all pink- it's like you're some crazed lunatic or something. It's certainly a different reaction than say, if you were to wear all black in which case you are effortlessly chic and epitomize style, elegance and grace. Or people are more likely to comment and say something snarky compared to wearing all black though. It kind of sucks that people think their opinion carries greater weight than say your own self-esteem or creativity but I've learned not to let it bother me. This frame of thinking has largely been helped by badass bloggers such as Susie Bubble and Tavi Gevinson who learn not to take things to heart (unless what they did was genuinely offensive or showed some kind of prejudice).

  2. You've got such a unique style that I never thought pink wasn't one of your favourite colours. It does look nice on you <3

    Yeah, I'm not big into "colour codes" either :( they suck. Barbie wears pink and she's a style icon too ;)

    1. I had my doubts about this outfit- like I was worried it was poorly composed and the silhouette was a bit off but I'm glad I posted it <3
