Thinking of You

A pink, grey, and white combination always seems to work – especially when sparked with a little silver . . .

In the 7th grade, my school choir decided on full, gray skirts and pink blouses for our uniforms.  In the mid-Fifties, this was the age of as many petticoats as you could possibly cram under your skirt, which gave each of us a walking diameter of at least four feet.  We used entire bottles of starch to get this effect, which made the petticoats so stiff that our legs bled from rubbing against them.  We couldn’t have fallen over if we tried . . . and how we managed to fit ourselves onto those skinny risers for performances baffles me to this day.  But those were happy times with great memories, and I still love using pink, grey and white together.

Minus the dangerous petticoats, of course.
