7 Penelope Pitstop Inspired Fashion Pieces To Race Into Summer

I used to love watching Penelope Pitstop in Wacky Races and the spin–off show The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. I was in awe that she managed to escape danger by using her talent of mimicking animal calls, her infamous Penelope Pitstop fashion accessories, and her highly skilled dance moves. In The Perils of Penelope Pitstop she would comedically interact with the narrator in her southern American drawl and her dialogue was hilarious: "Maybe I can untie that rope with my pearly white teeth?"

Although she was not much of a feminist icon — she was always being saved by men, although on occasion she would save the Ant Hill Mob in her spin–off show — she certainly knew how to dress in her signature pink, racing attire. You can be fashion forward by channelling Penelope's pink attire, as pink is reported to be a favorite shade for autumn/winter 2015.
