If you are going to celebrate it you might just as well learn a little about it, right…? Happy Pink Day!

CLASSIC PINK

Dating back to the 14th century, “to pink” (the verb) means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern”. However, the color didn’t get it’s name until the 17th century, after a pale red flower of same name appeared. Surveys were taken in both the United States and Europe with results indicating that pink -- especially when combined with white or pale blue --  is the color that is most commonly associated with femininity, sensitivity, tenderness and romance.  This interesting mix of red and pink is definitely striking yet casual to the eyes. We love it, don’t you?

ROYAL PINK

The Rococo Period was the golden age for the color pink.  During this time, pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe. Madame de Pompadour -- the mistress of King Louis XV of France -- in particular, was known for wearing the color pink, often combined with white. At one point in time, Ms. Pompadour had a particular tint of light pink made specially for her. This hue was soft, smooth and natural, and perfect to add a little discreet pop to your look!
