On Saturday, I took my younger two kids to Mary’s Flea Market, a local swap meet on the outskirts of Oklahoma City. It’s a monthly tradition for us. I give the kids $10 each and the only rule is they can’t buy any new junk made in China. This weekend, we scored a Mars Tin house from the 1950s. I posted an Instagram of it. My friend Rachel commented, “In the days before every toy was pepto pink in color.”
Boy, ain’t that the truth! Bridgette’s room is full of toys in Pepto Bismal pink.
It reminded me of something I caught wind of the other day. IC Visual Lab, a coalition of photographers from Britstol in South West England, are working a new book called Generation Pink. Here is a video they posted on Instagram.
This is a sneek peak of my book dummy for my book Generation Pink. The book documents the current fashion for all things pink amongst girls in the UK.
To see just how extreme pink in a girl’s room can be, read this Slate article abou JeongMee Yoon’s The Pink and Blue Project.
