Something happened to me over the last few years. Something I never would’ve predicted: the combo of pink + gold decor has inexplicably wormed its way into my heart.
You could say I’ve got a FEVAH and the only prescription is more
If you’d showed me pink + gold a few years back, I would’ve thrown up all over your face and said it was gross and pretentious… but now I’m infected.
I think what I dig about it the most, is that it’s so unapologetically glam. It KNOWS it’s fabulous and it DOES NOT CARE what you think. I can respect that kind of confidence, you know?
(Do you really think the giraffe cares what you or I think? He has much more important things to worry about. Like not following the fate of the zebra. Or finding jeans with a long enough inseam.)
Something about the glitzy, rich gold, all haughty and “old money,” combined with the fresh youth of ballet pink or sassiness of fuschia: it’s so rock and roll.
I’ve never typed the words “rock and roll” like that on my blog. Should it be rock-n-roll? Does typing it out in perfect English make me sound like an awkward old person? I don’t know the rules about these things.
I prefer gold with hot pink, so it doesn’t get too sweet and it still has some personality.
I’ve showed you the picture above before, but I can’t get enough of it. I want to shrink down to a four-inch tall person and live inside the picture. And drink out of a thimble and – ooh! I know! – befriend a boisterous little mouse family.
I know I should talk more about pink and gold here, but now I’m distracted by this mouse family idea. I’m fairly certain they’d let me sit at their dinner table and eat spaghetti with them. They’d be cute and probably sing songs – Disney mice, not gross real mice with actual tails.
Ooh, remember my $8 DIY interchangeable tray? Check it: pink and gold. For the win.
Look at Mila’s sweet little face. She’s the sweetest. She likes to play a game where she repeatedly hands me things and says “Dank-doo!” (“Thank you!”) in a sing-song voice. Adorbs. I love the still-baby-kinda-toddler stage. I love that girl. I love pink and gold. I love my theoretical musical mouse family.
