Millennial Pink, Internalized Misogyny, and Cute Shoes

What moves you? Is it a person, a place, a thing?

Right now, for me, it's a color.

My wardrobe is currently screaming Millennial Pink and I've found empowerment and reclamation of my femininity in it.

Pink used to feel too soft; too gentle. I am all too aware that it was my own internalized misogyny that kept me from embracing the shade. I used to hate being called girly, or even feminine. Society teaches us that women are weak and things women like are lesser than others (i.e. everything from "bitch drinks" to "pens for women"...because God forbid we use a normal pen!), and I drank the Kool-Aid for a while. Very problematic of me and I own up to it completely.

Not sure if it's my karmic retribution or whatever, but I am proper OBSESSED with pink now.

It's abundantly clear that you can wear a pink dress and ballet-inspired heels and still look tough as nails. I feel like a yung Dolores Umbridge in this getup (I mean, I hate her, but she was a powerful woman, haha).

Unlearning patriarchal standards never looked so goooooood.

  7. Hell yeah girl! I'm not sure when exactly I decided to stop worrying about the implication of my wardrobe choices (pink is too girly, those shoes are too masculine, blah blah) but millennial pink has reclaimed the color for our generation and I couldn't be happier. Also, yung Dolores Umbridge, I die.


  8. So digging the ruffles with the satin shoes! With the belt it's the perfect mix of femme and edge :)

  9. You are rocking the pink!

  10. I felt the same way with the color pink, and now i'm starting to embrace the color more, too!

  11. This article is really fantastic and thanks for sharing the valuable post.

  12. I used to think I couldn't like pink as a little girl because it was too "girly"! So happy to have let go of that internalized misogyny and embrace all things "girly" now :)

  13. Why would anyone want to have stylish expensive shoes which cannot be worn anywhere? In reality, a practical, stylish and affordable designer shoe is a good sell item. the style
