Mamie’s strong liking of pink led to the public association with pink being a color that “ladylike women wear.” The 1957 American musical Funny Face also played a role in cementing the color’s association with women.Mamie Eisenhower wore Pink

Olivetti Valentine

The Valentine typewriter is designed by Ettore Sottsass designed (with Perry A. King) for Olivetti in 1969. It is a portable (very small for it’s time) colorful and all-round friendly typing machine. Its was probably as cute as today’s latest Apple device…Hail to Italian design!
Just that!
Have a nice day! xoxo Mimi
