Bright Pink for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a Muted Neutral

Quote of the day: “Your life is made of two dates and a dash.  Make the most of the dash.” Nadine Hulse

This post came to be as I sorta/kinda talked Nancy into buying these fabulous bright pink pants.  I remember when I first got my red jeans, and I felt very conspicuous in them and would only wear them with dark colors. But as time went on I found that they paired very well with other colors.  Thus I want to show how good Nancy  will look in these pants when matching them with different combinations.  I told her I’d start out with muted neutrals to ease her into the thought of having such a flashy color on her legs!  For us other models, we got to wear bright pink in different pieces.

50’s Bright Pink: (Top): My mom made this vest dress over 25 years ago.  I probably didn’t need the pink pin on the pocket, but it seemed so plain otherwise.

60’s Bright Pink (Pants):  The color of the pants really pops against the grey & black—I love it!  Nancy actually made this necklace at one of her women’s retreats!

70’s Bright Pink (Accessories): I put mom in her pink shoes and accessories to lighten up the outfit.  The necklace is a little hard to see in pictures, but in person and up close, it adds moxie!!
