It's beauty, it's grace, it's Rose Quartz.

With unknown origins, the soft and innocent petal-esque color invaded most of the world: advertising splashed the color on its billboards; billboard icons blew it up on their album covers; publishers mass printed on the color exclusively and everyone else probably bathed in the color.

Millennial pink invades pop culture.

Thriving in this new age of social media, millennial pink cannot be missed. But if you did, it's because your eyes have already grown accustomed to its sweet peachy tones, as it slowly invades your underwear collection.

Let me know how millennial pink is for you. Is it the lace romper color of your dreams or no?
