This is my week to host Thrift Style Thursday, and I thought I'd ask all the TST ladies to feature one of my favorite colors to wear - pink!
I was never hugely fond of the color as a child. It was girly, and I was not. I liked blues and greens.
One day though, several years ago, I wore a pink sweater to work and received an inordinate number of compliments on it.
Being the skeptic I am, I decided to try an experiment. So I thrifted a second bright pink garment and wore it a few weeks later. Again, tons of compliments.
After the third or fourth repetition I was convinced it wasn't just a coincidence. Apparently, pink suits me.
And thus my love of the color pink developed. I mean, who doesn't like to wear things that draw compliments, right?
Through refashioning, the number of pink garments in my wardrobe has grown substantially. In fact, the pink pants above are the only thing pictured here in its original form.
And knitting hasn't hurt either!
So clearly, I lean toward the bright and bold pinks, but what's your favorite? Rose, fuchsia, carnation, raspberry, champagne, cotton candy, watermelon...
I can't wait to see what hues each of the Thrift Style Thursday ladies chose for today! Click their pics below to go see their blogs, or the TST logo in the center will take you to our Facebook page.
And don't forget our newest member, Alison!
Apologies for the flashback episode this week, but Tropical Storm Bill made outdoor photography totally impossible.
