A load of pink.

I've never been much of a girly-girl, I was a full fledged tom-boy as a child, and although I have come to embrace my inner diva in my twenties I have never immersed myself in pink. Many people know this about me and so I received lots of very cool baby clothes for Eloise that were all colors of the rainbow bar pink.

But when you have a girl it is just impossible to avoid

Even when I shop for her it's hard not to come back with some sweet little pink onesie.

I'd be curious (though not curious enough to do my own research of course, 6 months of broken sleep here people!) to find out the how when why of girls in pink and boys in blue.

Any ideas?

  1. All I know is that until recently (the 1950s or so) the color scheme was opposite. Boys wore pink--the diluted form of red, color of Mars, the color of war--and girls wore light blue--the color of purity, associated with the Virgin Mary. I'm not sure why it changed though.
