So, Easter 2012 is now in the history books, but it’s the time of year that many of us start gravitating¬† towards pastels and pinks–one of my favorite colors, truth be told–though I realize pink isn’t for every gal. How about you?

Take a gander at these pink pretties from spring 1961…

The above left (in a decidedly unfeminine stance, I note) is more lilac than pink, but was available for purchase at Wm. H. Block’s. And is it just me, or does the gal on the right look a bit like a young Julia Roberts?

I try to save the best for last and this fabulous pink suit has my name all over it! Looks like something Jackie O would have worn, doesn’t it? Or like an earlier iteration of a quite famous Jackie O. suit she DID wear…though it may not be a popular opinion, but I love the monochromatic look, matching beads and dress. And! We really need to bring back hats! Who’s with me? Well, I know they are at the IMA and wish I could go to the upcoming Fashion Arts Society “Hat’s Off” luncheon–looks like fun and tickets are still available.
