The Text of Pink


This is what I saw last time I was up in Chicago.
It begged for attention and I had to give in. The text of pink, I call it.

The preponderance of pink is code for something here, I find.

This is a color/textile/aesthetic choice which this particular wearer finds apropos for quotidianity.
Mesmerizing.

How would you read this?

Wowsah! How can one not look at this?!

Such pronounced, performative 'femininity' is perturbing.

"The preponderance of pink."
HA!
I think I have a favorite phrase now.

And yet the footwear complements the Pink-age quite adequately I find.
For Jimmy Choo's wouldn't be the right choice, that's for sure!

It's so mesmerizing, no words are apropos. :)

I read that she reads a lot of Victoria's Secret catalogs.

What is with that hair?

So much is going on in this text, I think I need a cocktail to process it!
Wow.
She needs to drop a few layers of demarcation, if you catch my drift. :)
