Oscars Pink - by any other name

Oscars Pink by any other name would look as sweet. Rose Quartz. Blush. Champagne. Cameo. I loved seeing all of the pink gowns on the Academy Awards red carpet last night.  Pink seems to be a perennial favorite for Millennial fashionistas. And Dunitz & Company fair trade often includes fresh pink looks in our collection for our wholesale and retail customers. What a breath of fresh air pink was on the red carpet...

Saorise Ronan was absolutely adorable in her Calvin Klein pink gown with it's huge bow at the back. (The style reminded me of the light blue gown I wore to my brother's bar mitsvah.  My neckline was higher and I was only 11! Stay tuned. I promise to share a photo of that sometime soon.) When I saw this charming dress and others, it confirmed that Dunitz & Company continues to be right on track with color planning.

Did you see Allison Williams in Get Out? Now that was a though provoking film. Even she found the character she played a bit disturbing. At least this is what a gathered from her chat with a TV host on the red carpet pre-show.  Her blush Armani Prive gown and hair style screamed "classic" Hollywood. What a dream she was.

Elizabeth Moss is a favorite of mine. An she was picture perfect last night in Dior Haute Couture.

More pink from Mira Sorvino. If you watched the awards, you saw her partnering with Ashley Judd (wearing a slight variation from Pantone's Ultra-Violet) speaking out for the #metoo movement.

Gina Rodriguez of Jane the Virgin fame donned a Zuhair Murad gown with a plunging neckline. And, yes - another stunning blush pink gown.

So here's the deal.  If all these wildly beautiful celebrities choose to wear pink, why shouldn't you?  I encourage everyone to wear shades of pink. Pink is so soft, feminine and flattering. And you don't have to be dolled up in a gown. Heck, last week Dunitz & Company was exhibiting at the California Marketplace gift show. On a short sales break, the woman working in the booth next to mine went hunting for treasure in other booths near ours. Guess what she came back with?  A pink sweater!

And you know what we say about that? Dunitz & Company fair trade offers the BEST pink earrings! And bracelets and necklaces too! Be brave. Get your Oscar Pink on. Let us help you do it. -ND
