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?

I love Radiant Orchid colour <3 It looks amazing :)

Jamie Rose said...

I really like it! I loved last year's shade, but this one will be great for spring. It's a really fun color.

Red Rose Alley said...

I really like this color, Imogen, because it's very similar to my favorite color, PURPLE! This color is really IN right now, and I've seen it on another friend's blog too. This is a pretty color for clothes and fashion, but the lipstick might be a bit too bright for me. I hope you are enjoying the new year.

Love,
~Sheri

Radiant Orchid is such a pretty color, it's so feminine and happy and reminds me of spring. Great showcase of the color, too; I love the hair comb and pillows and of course that sweater and skirt.

Panty Buns said...

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!
