QotD: Is pink fleece fashionable?

This month I've decided to post every day. Please don't faint. Since I don't have enough original things to write about (hence the desertish nature of my blog lately), I've decided to ask a new question every day this month and hope that I get answers. I have questions; you have answers.

Question #1: Is pink fleece fashionable?

I love my pink fleecey zip-up jacket. Those of you who know me well know that, in general, I loathe pink. My bedroom when I was a kid was pepto-bismol pink (with pink and white shag carpeting -- it was the 1970's, whaddaya expect?), and I think that scarred me.

I wanted a fleece jacket a couple of years ago, but didn't want to pay full price. I already owned 3 other jackets, so I certainly didn't need it. LL Bean had fleece jackets on sale, but only pink. It was so much cheaper than the full price ones, I decided to branch out into pink. Bright pink. Really, really pink. But is a pink fleece jacket fashionable for a 40-mumble year-old neurologist? Or did I look like a dork walking into work this morning?

There certainly are a lot of pink and pink ribbon based fashions out there these days. So I suspect that you are not out of fashion at all.

Fashionable? What is this?

Where what you want and what makes you comfortable. Who cares about the rest?

Almost what Michelle said. Wear what you want.

Fashion, smashion.

I'll wear it regardless, even though I don't love the color. (I love the fleecey warmth.) I was just wondering if a pink fleece jacket could be fashionable for a female over the age of 12.

My FIL is an 88 year old WWII / Chinese Revolutionary War vet, and he likes pink. Just tell anyone who asks it's your lucky color.

JTS, I am not messing with your father-in-law. If he likes pink, then so do I.
