Pink, Pink, Pink!!!

Lily's not even born yet and I'm soooo sick of pink. I really don't know why 95% of everything for girls has to be this one, bubble-gummy, color-- I can't imagine the boredom of choosing between outfits of the same color every day. I have a mission; find great baby clothes that come in different colors.

I asked the salesperson at Gymboree if many people complained about the lack of color selection for infants. She tells me that 99% of people having a first daughter that come in want to load up on pink clothes. I guess this is somehow similar to vast numbers of people preferring beige or sage wall paint. So I'm wondering where the stores for parents like me are. Surely there are quite a few of us who would like to see a rainbow of colors in our baby's wardrobe. Infancy is a great time for color, after all, they look cute in just about anything!

The thing is that I'm now fixated on finding the "perfect" first portrait/going home outfit and I don't want a pink one. I'm hoping to find something I like enough to get stored professionally and save for Lily to have when she gets older and has a family of her own. I'm thinking white or maybe red.... hmm let's see if I can find anything.

A few sites I've come across so far:
