Radiant Orchid

The choice of Radiant Orchid as the Patone Colour of the Year for 2014 was somewhat surprising to me! Although not my favourite colour, I do love the regal vibe and the pink undertones associated with radiant orchid. I especially wish I owned the Sophia Webster pink metallic polka dot sweetheart pumps. They are stunning and perfect(Sophia Webster is my new found favourite brand of shoes). Coincidentally, the default font colour for my blog would most likely be classified as Radiant Orchid too. Interesting. What are your thoughts on Radiant Orchid?

  3. Although my favourite colour is vibrant feminine pink. I also very much love all of the shades of Radiant Orchid! As you know, I like to style contrasting complementary colours together. I think the darker shades of Radiant Orchid would look good styled with lemon yellow, the lighter shades with a bright green, and the medium shades with turquoise or duck-egg blue. It's hard to judge in advance until the outfit pieces are right there in person where you can see them against each other. I think you could have a fabulous time styling outfit pieces in Radiant Orchid with some of the other pieces I've seen you wear in prior posts. Lucky you being there weather-wise. It's FREEZING here! Have a fashion-tastic year 2014!



  4. I totally agree with Pantone; it's an amazing colour!

    Love the items you picked!
