I probably would have fought this idea a decade or so back but I have come to the realisation that every girl truly does have a soft spot for pink. For some, any shade is fine but for me it has to be either end of the spectrum, a true, light, feminine baby pink or a super bright, hot, Shocking Pink!
At one point in time this tone would have shocked [hence the name, named after the pink lettering used on the Leonor Fini perfume ‘Shocking’ in 1937] and certainly now I still think it raises eyebrows but I think it’s for all the right reasons. A little or a lot of Shocking pink in your interior or even in your fashion shows a bold lust for life and seriously does it not make you smile?
