Woman Obsessed With the Color Pink Surrounds Herself With Her Favorite Color

A young Swiss teacher obsessed with the color pink has been wearing nothing but her favorite color for over a decade and has decked out her apartment pink as well.

32-year-old Yasmin Charlotte has loved the color pink ever since she was a child, but instead of growing out of it, Yasmin only became more obsessed with pink as she grew up. 13 years ago she started wearing pink exclusively, and ever since she moved into her own apartment last year, she has created her very own pink paradise. She used to live with her boyfriend, and had turned half the place pink, but now that she has all the space to herself, she has gone all out. Despite attracting a lot of attention and even some abuse because of her obsession with pink Yasmin says she would never put on any other color, not even for her wedding.

When I was a kid, I would dress in pink like any little girl,” Yasmin told PA Real Life. “Then when I was 12 my mum bought me a pink cardigan and some trousers. I loved them, but I felt embarrassed. I thought pink was for little girls, not nearly teenagers. But at 16, I started to wear more and more pink, and grow my collection. I had blue jeans and a black skirt but everything else was pink.”

Yasmin threw away her last pair of blue jeans, the only non-pink piece of clothing in her wardrobe and has been faithful to her favorite color ever since. Her friends and family initially thought it was just a phase, but they have come to accept that she is never giving up on pink and support her in everything she does.

The 32-year-old teacher has an entire wardrobe consisting of various shades of pink, as well as a collection of over 100 pairs of pink shoes. Luckily she has had no complaints at her school, and say she would never accept a job that doesn’t allow her to wear pink. Her students reportedly call her “Miss Pink”.

“Before I became a teacher, I did an apprenticeship as a dressmaker so I do make some of my own clothes, but I mostly buy online and in shops,” Yasmin said. “I have never had to wear a uniform for work and I would never chose a job where I couldn’t wear pink. For the last 13 years, I’ve worn nothing but pink. On occasion, I have had to go to a funeral or something like that, but if that happens, I borrow clothes.”

Ever since she moved into her own rented flat last year, Yasmin Charlotte painted all the walls pink and filled it up with pink things that she had been collecting for years. Now it’s her own pink paradise, her “comfort blanket” after a stressful day. From the walls and the furniture to the carpet and chandeliers, everything in her home is pink, and every time she finds something she likes that doesn’t come in pink, she will simply paint it pink first.

“I would love it if everybody had the strength to wear individual stuff, if it really makes you happy,” Yasmin said. “There are a lot of people who say to me, ‘You are strong because you wear what you want to, that’s so impressive’ and I always say, ‘You can do this too’.”

Color obsession is really not that unusual, really. Over the years, we’ve featured unique characters like the Green Lady of Brooklyn, Miss Sunshine, a woman obsessed with the color yellow, or Zorica Rebernik, the Red Lady of Bosnia.
