Does anyone know of a place where I can get feminine pretty things that are NOT pink?! I just found out I am having a girl, and was appalled at the fact that everthing I picked up at the regular stores had some form of pink in it.Answer Question

You don't have to do all pastels. You can do denim and bright colors.
When my oldest was a baby 30 years ago some of us believed in non-sexist child rearing. We raised our children to have the best qualities of both sexes. No way a girl would have pink or a boy would have camo, it was too extreme. Boys would have dolls or at least stuffed animals and things to nuture them with like slings. Girls would have dump trucks. They would have all kinds of toys. We decorated with bright primary colors and clothes were bright.
The thing is non-sexist child rearing works and you don't hear anything about it anymore. You go to Target and walk past the toys and there is this whole PINK isle.

I have 4 girls and we have almost no pink in our house! A few things here and there that one or two of them picked out, but it's actually pretty easy to find non-pink things. I did the girls' rooms in soft yellow when they were younger. Then added some lavender, etc. I can be frustrating when all you immediately see is pink in the girls section at stores, but if you look around a little you can find a lot of things that aren't pink.
I think I must have done the non-sexist child rearing thing without even being aware of it. My girls liked all kinds of toys from trucks to dolls (though the preferred to take the heads off the Barbies and have Barbie zombie head wars). I always just buy what they like and not what society thinks they should have. :D
