Pretty in Pink – Pink Dahlias

This week is pink in Kim’s crazy color challenge 2020. Here is my picture of pink dahlias for the challenge. I remember when I was about 5 years old there was a craze  for making flowers out of scarves (just by folding them) and wearing them like a hairband or to tie up your hair in a pony tail. I would always ask my mom to make dahlias with my scarves and use them as a hair bands. I had loads of pink scarves because I liked pink.

The craze lasted for around for a year or two and I had  collected so many sheer silk and muslin scarves. Tulle scarves were a craze and I guess I had a few dozens of those as well. When the fashion had died a quiet death my mom dyed the scarves in the tie and dye style and that was another fashion trend.

I did not follow any follow any fashion trends later in my life, even in my teens. I wonder where there craze  for following fashion trends in my childhood had gone.

Even today I don’t follow fashion trends I wear what suits me best and what is comfortable.  There was a time when I wore wrap around sarong style skirts because they were so comfortable, but they also were in fashion around that time. It was a happy accident.

Now, I think I can trace back my love for flowers, especially dahlias.
