The 1950s arent always thought of as one of the most colorful eras of American history, especially when you compare them to decades like the roaring '20s, the psychedelic 60s, or the day-glo neon 80s. But even though a lot of the days entertainment was black and white, there are still plenty of flashes of rosy color to be found in the Eisenhower era.
Whats more 50s than a pink Cadillac, for instance? Or how about the pink flamingos that started popping up in the lawns of newly built suburbs?

Did you know that the whole Poodle Skirt thing was not, in fact, borne out of an obsession with those snobby she-she curly-haired dogs? Nope - the whole thing started when Juli Charlot needed a new dress to wear to a party but couldnt sew to save her life - so she cut a wide circle out of some felt, cut a donut-hole circle the size of her waist out of the middle, and then appliqud a cute little holiday Christmas tree on the skirt.
The skirt was such a hit that she started to make and sell them - using the money to go to design school (and finally learn how sew)! The most popular design?
