The Pink Collar Beginning

It was an immediate friendship between us gals, that surprisingly hadn't happened years prior. We have discovered over our hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of conversation that we have been crossing paths for about ten years, having the same friends, and hanging around the same places… but maybe it was the timing that was just right!  We quickly discovered we had both been planning individual blogs, but with some unexpected life occurrences, neither of our works had been shared.

Combining our passions, knowledge, talents, and interests... our duo was meant to be! Us Pink Collar Gals are always hunting for Old Hollywood nostalgia when it comes to vintage fashion, architectural design, beauty, historical places of interest, and there were no other blogs sharing this variety.  We combined that with our love of pink, feminine glamour, and The Pink Collar Life was born!

As you have probably read in our About Us section, The Pink Collar Life is based on some rich history itself. We always giggle that all of our jobs have been considered "Pink Collar jobs," and we wouldn't have it any other way. We are so fortunate to have met so many talented, entrepreneurial women with similar interests and careers along the way!

Our first official promo photo shoot with Riley Kern Studio came together like a piece of cake. We were provided these powder pink playsuits by Wheels and Dollbaby, appropriately named the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes playsuit.  We took inspiration from Marilyn's well-known movie poster with Jane Russell, as well as another classic, The Dolly Sisters, starring Betty Grable and June Haver. Matching gloves, fishnets, top hats, and a curly 40's up-do, was just the right look for our story…. The Pink Collar Life!
