^ I think this is a good compromise. Provide some pink beads, sun glasses, hats, etc, then if guests want to partake they can. Have fun, it is your birthday!

Dude, you're 30. Just stop. No more color and brand obsessions...and a huge pink bday? I thought you lived at home with your parents and your dad hated your whole obsession thing?

I love when women celebrate their milestone birthday with oommp. I wish I did but I was a chicken. I like to hide under my bed and spent the day alone thinking of future goals and reflecting on past


I think saying "wear something pink" is a good start. someone can wear purse or jewelry if they don't want to wear a full dress. Make it an optional, so its fun especially those girls who might have a pink dress in closet but is too afraid to wear it. It might give excuse to pull it out. Make it optional & have few beads for girls to wear if they show up with no pink. I thin its cute idea, go for it but don't be too strict about it.

Although this statement is mean, I must say some how my choose of color has been dark color since I turn 30. I use to be the one wearing red, yellow, green.. any bright colors but last 2 years I have been leaning toward navy, black, olive. It makes me look skinner, which is nice & capsule wardrobe is much easier.

Yes, I am a guy, but pink is my signature color. Especially light pink such as Fairy Tale.

My concern would be that it might turn off a lot of men. Also, during that time of year, pink clothing isn't widely available in stores, since pink is usually part of fashion companies' Spring collections, while that time of year the Fall collections are still mostly available (although for women's clothing Resort collections are typically also available). However, IZOD did release a small number of Spring 2017 products last year in mid-November.

What does anyone think about this idea? Note that I would not mandate any specific shade of pink, since some people may prefer darker shades of pink.
Do you want people to come to party? Do you want them to enjoy themselves?

If I were invited to a party where I was told I had to wear only pink, I would not be attending. I won't buy clothing or shoes for an event that I won't wear or use again. I don't own pink. It's my least favorite color. I can only think of 2 guys I know who own a pink shirt.

Just because you like IZOD doesn't mean anyone else does. Doesn't mean anyone else will buy their items either. Wear what you want and let others wear what they want. It's a party! Lighten up.

Absolutely! Sorry, it's not my party so I'm not buying anything to wear to attend. I hate pink! I know many women who hate pink. I don't know any guys who are in love with it either.
