There is not a lot of rationality to why we like certain things and dislike others. I recently was lucky enough to have a conversation with Dan Ariely, a psychologist rock-star and best-selling author of Predictably Irrational, about his work on irrational behavior. If you haven’t had a chance to read his book, I invite you on the mentally scintillating journey.
I have never been a fan of the color pink, surprising confession considering that I’m quite a girly girl. I can invent reasons for this dislike, such as my nonconformist self prefers to like things unliked by others. But to be honest, I simply think that pink doesn’t look that great on me (possibly quite an irrational conclusion). Luckily I buy things not only for the way they look but also for the way they feel, and this cashmere sweater is a bit like what I imagine heaven to feel. It’s absolutely luxurious and indulgent. The pink grows a bit easier on me when my skin gets to be caressed by the gorgeous texture.
