What your favorite color says about you? (I had planned on blue for my next color but opted for pink in honor of the recently passed Valentine’s Day.)
FROM HOT PINK TO THE PALEST PINK this color has a wide variety of hues, meanings, connotations and associations. Here are just a few: pink cadillacs, bubblegum, cotton candy, cherry blossoms, pigs, flamingos, ballet slippers, tutus, Pink Floyd and Pepto Bismol.
Pink has traditionally been considered the a color of femininity… newborn baby girls, prom queens and bridesmaid dresses. Anti-feminists may look at pink as being old fashioned or used to represent repression. And, of course, there is the underlying sexual connotation of pink.
Pink is essentially considered to be a shade of red with white or elements of other colors throw in. I would not call it my favorite, however I still do like it quite muchly.
