Redefining Ladylike: Old Colors, New Looks

There are certain colors worn by women which have been considered classic 'girly girl' colors. These tend to lay on the reddish spectrum of things. The four basics; red, pink, purple and coral. Through the decades we have seen our mothers, aunts, grandmothers sport these until we almost associate these colors with a certain level of tackiness which is not deserved by the innocent colors that have been abused and sometimes butchered. They've seen it all, from shoulder-pads, spandex mini skirts, plastic bangles, patent shoes, you name it, they've seen it. So I thought it would be fun to create new work-friendly look using these same colors & attempt to reinvent them.
