Hi ladies so here is a DIY project that I've been working on today. I went on Dollar Tree website...
So let me start by saying that I "hate" the color PINK. I had to put the pink in " because clearly that isn't the case...anymore. I have never been a "pink" girl. I hated that all my dolls and barbies had on pink. I always said my daughters would never wear pink. I cursed when Victoria's Secret came out with all this PINK crap. I wrote midterms in college in my womens studies classes about how I hated the color pink and how I felt it was a curse to women and was holding us back and all that other feminist crap :-). Yeah, I hated pink. I could count the number of times I actually purchased something pink for myself. But I have always loved RED...which grew into my love for Orange.
And the fall, I sooo love the fall. So when I "planned" my "late summer fun" wedding in my head, clearly Orange was a focal color. And my fiance' and I paired with Yellow and Grey (our joint fav color) and we thought we were set. Then we googled...and we saw pink. So I'm like Eh, I'm an adult. It works. And in the last few years I realized I looked damn good in Pink LOL. So we were going to do the Orange and Yellow with pops of Pink. Well who knew Yellow was going to be the bane of my wedding existence.
The yellow shades just weren't doing it for us. When we looked at bridesmaid dresses, it just looked so BLAH and GIRLY. And it was soo light. Like Easter and babies LOL. And when my sister tried on the Dessy dress in Tutti Fruti...I was hooked. And quickly pink, HOT PINK at that, became OUR color. Well and orange. And it's working. Beautifully I may add.
So excited. ^_^
