Pink Saturday, February 27

Just who does Lustre Creme think it is?! Pink is for girls? Harrumph.
Right. I'll go along with that when pink pigs sprout wings and fly!
Now, I agree with Revlon. When it comes to men and pink, you can't have a prissy pink - not a sissy pink....
No, the only way to go is a bright, bold, studly pink.
And I ask you, does anything speak of masculine allure and machismo like a mankini?! And in pink?!?! Too manly for words!

And the same goes for men when they wear pink high heeled platform dress shoes. Make sure that pink is alarmingly pink - a pink that will stop traffic - a pink that will weaken your opponents. Most likely with laughter.Of course, a more subtle pink is certainly acceptable for men's underwear and socks. Utilizing this color in these garments make you understand perfectly why they're called unmentionables. It also will help you if you're single and don't have a chance in heaven of undressing in front of anybody else. Especially somebody else of an opposite gender. It could cool off the moment, I think.

Can anybody say that pimps lead a prissy, sissy life? Yet, a three piece pin-striped suit with pink tie and matching hat band will certainly keep this mec's girls on the ball and not lazing about. Call this bad boy a prissy sissy, and you may have to run to get away from his big bad Leroy Brown act!
Now, I'm personally a huge fan of going to any store when there is a sale, and buying every single item of your outfit from the same line. Does anything really have the effect of a tie and pocket square and hat that match? And, make sure that vest does not coordinate, but, rather, matches each other. That's how to make the biggest pink impact on the club patrons when you arrive.Okay. I have to admit. I actually like this shirt from Armani Jeans.
Maybe there is something to Lustre Creme's statement. Even that Armani shirt can't compete with this Jose Castro couture gown. This pink is definitely for the girls!
And, even though I think it looks just fab, I really can't see myself living with this all-pink decorating scheme. But I'm sure my sister would go crazy for it. Maybe it is about gender after all!
Nah. If pale pink is good enough for Brad, it's good enough for me! To hell with Lustre Creme!

Okay, I have to fly...Why don't you grab a (pink) cup of tea and head over to Beverly's Pink Saturday and check out all the other participants in this weekly event.
Then, go make something beautiful! Maybe something pink!

Tamerie Shriver said...

Okay, I love pink and I even love a nice pink shirt on a man, but I do have to draw the line at pink suits. That's just a bit too much for me. As for pink patent leather, stacked heal oxford's for men? Ah, NO!

Great post, though, and Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Hugs,
Tamerie

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Happy Pink Saturday Tristan...
Job well done. So entertaining always, and I do love the Brad P look. Yep, I would say if it is good enough for Brad, it would be good enough for any man. He wears class for sure.

Loved the pink tea set. So exquisitie. Thank you for sharing good friend. I can't wait to see who the recepient will be of your stage. She will be lucky. This I know first hand.

Have a beautiful day Tristan. Country hugs...Sherry

Georgina said...

Just popping in to say hello. My mother used to dress me in pink and my older sister in dusty blue. Needless to say, we hated those colours and avoided wearing them in our youth, ah but age has a way of softening prior prejudices...I love pink and wear it now. As for dusty blue, we both decided it's not as fun as pink!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

xxoo,
Georgina

I must have a "bug" in my computer! Seriously! It won't let me get past the fourth photo! Every time I try to make it go to photo 5, the "bug" makes the fourth photo come back up on the screen! What in the world is wrong with my computer? Oh, wait...that isn't a "bug", it is my finger! Sorry, I gotta run. Time to look at photo four again! Thanks!!!

Susie Jefferson said...

Pink prefection - what a fun post (as always). I adore the Big Bad Leroy Brown outfit. Did you by any chance ever see Antonio Fargas in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, with his platform shoes... glass heels with goldfish swimming in them? The perfect accessory maybe, if it was angel fish...

Happy Pink Saturday!

Shell said...

I agree if Brad can wear Pink well, you can too. Loving all the fun of Pink Saturday.

Rebecca said...

Ok Mr. T...that Mankini sorta creeped me out. Too much for this sometimes SHY GIRL. :) :) :)

Lovin' the pink zoot-looking-suit, though. A real man would wear this.

Off now to read more. Missed a couple of days.

Thought you might enjoy these...apparently pink for girls is a recent phenomenon! Love your china darling...wish we could sit down with a cuppa together! And the theatre...the black with the pink looks fabulous!
"At one point pink was considered more of a boy's color, (as a
watered-down red, which is a fierce color) and blue was more for
girls. The associate of pink with bold, dramatic red clearly affected
its use for boys. An American newspaper in 1914 advised mothers, "If
you like the color note on the little one's garments, use pink for the
boy and blue for the girl, if you are a follower of convention." [The
Sunday Sentinal, March 29, 1914.]

"There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the
generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. The
reason is that pink being a more decided and stronger color is more
suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty,
is prettier for the girl." [Ladies Home Journal, June, 1918]

Hi Tristan, your post today is awesome. I LOVE the comparisons in pink between men and women. When I was a teen in the 50's pink, gray and black was in!!! Those colors still rock. Thanks for a fun post with pink between the genders.
Happy pink Saturday.
Hugs, Jeanne

I wish I had that Cindy Sherman china in your bottom photo. I've seen it in yellow, but never pink. I've missed a few posts and am catching up. Where have I been? You're too prolific. Enjoy those pancakes...I'm making a Croque Madame for my husband this morning...so I guess you could say that I'm going to make something beautiful.

Still waiting for my flock to arrive - Very excited.
