Pretty In Pink

Do you think pink? Mamie Eisenhower certainly did. Her legacy of pink still survives today in some unremodeled bathrooms across the country.

How did the wife of our 34th president of the United States influence so many housewives of the fifties? I believe most women could relate to her.
As a military wife, Mamie took great pride in making the home a comfortable place for her husband. Unlike president's wives before and after, she sought to compliment not overshadow or distract from her husbands career. She was a classy, kindhearted, down to earth mother, wife and hostess.
Its no wonder what Mamie did soon became a trend. From pink bathrooms, to pink kitchens, even down to her curly short fringe. Women of the mid fifties loved the First Lady.
