Yeah, so the dress is supposed to be more of a nude but I think it kinda has a pink tone to it… which I love…

Here’s why you should love pink:

It can be calming for your eyes
I’ve always been a bit light sensitive. I find that I can actually see a bit better wearing rose-tinted glasses. Also, I tend to end up wearing my sunglasses outside even when it’s overcast and the sun isn’t in sight. On those days, dark sunglasses aren’t going to cut it but a lighter rosey hue means I can still see everything else around me.

Things seem happier with more pink around
I don’t know if this is just me but whenever I see anything pink; I instantly start to smile. It’s normally a fairly calming colour, often not too garish… like some yellows. It’s normally seen in pastel shades too. At the same time, it’s also interesting to look at, it’s bright and stands out – giving a pleasant change from the boring blacks and greys we always seem to see around, without being overpowering.

It shows you’re comfortable with yourself
I think shying away from pink, unless you just don’t like the colour, can show insecurity. People out there really do avoid it because they’re scared it’s ‘too childish’ or ‘too girly’. By wearing it, if you like it, it shows you’re confident and you’re standing tall against people’s opinions. When men wear it, it also shows they’re comfortable in their ‘masculinity’ and that society shouldn’t decide what’s a ‘boys colour’ and what’s a ‘girl’s colour’. Colours are just colours.

It makes a statement
Pink is eye-catching, it’ll make you stand-out from the crowd. If you wear a bright hot pink dress in the middle of a tiny country village, those nosy neighbours will probably be whispering. Okay, I’ve got no idea if that’s actually true, I don’t live in a ‘village’… not technically. Most people tend to pick more neutral tones though and eyes do tend to land on the something that’s different.

It’s that ‘different’ colour
Okay, this is probably going to be a super weird thing to say. (Okay, scratch that, most things I say are  a weird thing to say.) When I was first starting school, we had houses – very Hogwarts – and they were blue, green, yellow and red. It felt like those were the only colours in the world at school. I always wanted my favourite colour to be one of the ‘different’ ones, like pink… purple… gold… silver….

Okay, that was probably a bit of a weird tangent to go off on. I’m going to wrap this up by talking about this awesome, so awesome, dress.

The Dress
The dress, A.K.A the main attraction, it’s awesome (oh wait, I’ve already said that). You know what I really love about this dress? The straps. Seriously, the last couple of dresses I’ve had, have had no straps. I love them but that also means living in constant fear of the dress falling down and me flashing. Hey, I’m not that big up there so it’s hard for it to hold up.
I also love the simple design. Fancy statement dresses are all well and good but not so great for wearing on a daily basis. Take something like this, you can cas… casual? it down. Throw a sweatshirt on over the top and a pair of boots and you’re good to go. It also means you can adapt it for the different seasons. Yeah, so apparently I only care about the practicalities when buying a dress. In my defence, I feel like I have an in-build: OMG! it’s *insert pink, fluffy, sparkly* feature. I don’t really have to think about that stuff. Don’t forget to check out the Dropship Clothes big sale, they have some great pieces.
