Handsome in Pink

Handsome in PinkDid you know that pink was originally a color for boys? It’s true. Up until the 1940’s, boys were dressed in pink and girls in blue. And then it got all confusing.

But we live in a time when barriers are being broken all over the place. In the wake of our review of Cinderella Ate My Daughter, if you have a boy who likes pink or a girl who likes tools or a child of any type who just wants to be hip, you’re going to want to check out the boutique Handsome in Pink. Or HIP, as we like to call it.

Handsome in Pink
is a clothing line out of Oakland, CA that focuses on undressing
stereotypes while dressing cool kids. Most of the shirts are American
Apparel, many are organic, and all are locally screen-printed with
water-based ink. You might like the Girly Girl tee, which is neither pink nor traditionally girly. In fact, the letters are spelled out with things like a scooters, a snare drum, and a baseball bat. Also a doll. Because girls should be able to play with all of the above, right?

Maybe you want your fu
ture leader in the Forget princess. Call me president
onesie. Or you can skip the words and go straight to a refreshing
collection of pink fire trucks, lavender rockets, purple guitars, and
hot pink dirtbikes.

Sizes range from newborn
through 12. And they even have some select tees for mamas and papas who
dig the cool combination of girlish and boyish– whatever those mean.
Personally, I’m waiting for a pink robot. With glitter. ~Delilah
