Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day, is celebrated yearly on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions around the world.

The two most celebrated colors representing Valentine’s Day? Red and pink…mixed with white I think!

The color red is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. Red exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy. Red is often used to express love, which is why the color is associated with Valentine’s Day. When you leave the house you’ll be noticed by all if dressed in red…from your toes to your head!

The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. Pink relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. A combination of the colors red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. When you leave the house dressed in pink you’ll be the daintiest, most feminine person on the planet…I think!

Pink Fun Fact: The color pink has been described in literature since ancient times. Pink wasn’t a common color in the fashion of Middle Ages; nobles preferred brighter reds, such as crimson. However, the color pink did appear in women’s fashion, and in religious art. In the high Renaissance painting the Madonna of the Pinks by Raphael, the Christ child is presenting a pink flower to the Virgin Mary. The pink was a symbol of marriage, showing a spiritual marriage between the mother and child.

As far as accessories (which always make or break an outfit), I tend to favor pink purses and pink high heels. These two pink accessories together say “I’m confident”, “I’m fashion fabulous”, “I’m fashion fun”!


Pink Fashion Fun Fact: The golden age of the color pink entering mainstream fashion was the Rococo Period (1720-1777) in the 18th century, when pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe. Pink was particularly championed by Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), the mistress of King Louis XV of France, who wore combinations of pale blue and pink, and had a particular tint of pink made for her by the Sevres porcelain factory, created by adding nuances of blue, pink and yellow.
The color pink can signify good health, being ‘in the pink’ and success, as in ‘everything’s rosy’.
Pink clothing, whether shocking or pastel, when wrapped in pink you’ll look youthful, sweet and well!


For a color of clothing that is sure to lighten and lift your mood, go with a full set of pink: style, playfulness and attitude!
“I’m going to an amazing dinner party next week and I’m thinking of wearing black.”
“You will look magnificent no doubt, but you’ll blend in to the back.”
“Perhaps you’re right. There will probably be more black dresses than I can count.”
“I say wear any shade of pink…you’ll look unique and you’ll certainly stand out.”
“Maybe I’ll wear pink chiffon…or find a neon satin or silk pink dress.”
“Go full fashion pink…add pink earrings, a pink necklace, dress pink to impress!”

This holds true in fashion. Whether you prefer pink clothing, accessories, lingerie and/or jewelry, the color pink always looks fabulous, don’t you think?
Pink is a pale red color, which takes its name from the flower of the same name. According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most often associated with love, beauty, charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and romance!
Ah, the persuasive power of pink!

A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of the color red, helping to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by the color white. Pink is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white.
When combined together to form pink, red and white mix just right!
Pink Fashion Fun Fact: Pink clothing and accessories look gorgeous in all shades of pink, however, the deeper the color pink, the more passion and energy the color exudes. Pink, when combined with violet or black, is associated with eroticism and seduction.

Wow, pink has lots to say in the color’s demure, subtle way!

I understand that not every female feels comfortable donned in the puff that is pink. However, pink is such a fantastic color, that even a little bit of pink goes a long way. If you feel that walking around dressed in full pink makes you feel like a strawberry or a cherry, why not carry a pretty pink purse? Merely one pink item can add a softness and calming effect to your entire outfit. Not sure if these are words that you can buy? Why not carry a pink handbag now and then and give it a try!

Pink Fun Fact: The color pink is named after the flowers called pinks, flowering plants in the genus Dianthus. The name derives from the frilled edge of the flowers – the verb “to pink” dates from the 14th century and means to “decorate with a perforated or punched pattern.”
In the 20th century, pinks became bolder, brighter and more assertive, in part because of the invention of chemical dyes which did not fade. In optics, pink can refer to any of the colors between bluish red (purple) and red, of medium to high brightness and of low to moderate saturation.
Since pink falls between red and magenta, one must say pink is a lovely hue. For a knock-out pair of off the chart high heeled shoes, only pink heels and platforms will do!
