Liz: Pantone's got me dreaming in pinkish purple. Just in case you missed it, Pantone has declared "radiant orchid" the color of the year. If you are starting to see a lot of purple and you do not understand why. now you do! Normally I am a huge proponent of dipping yourself, head to toe, in one color. That said, I think this particular shade works better as a fun accent. Now THAT said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE orchid and I highly recommend you add some to your life. Oh and don't take the color "orchid" too literally. Any shade of pink/purple/periwinkle will make the same point.
Jane: J'agree with everything you just said Liz. This beautiful Burberry lace trench would literally transform any outfit from jeans, to formal attire... OR wear it alone as a dress (wow). Brighten up a rainy day with purple wellies, paint your nails pretty pastel, throw on a cocktail ring or cheer up your boring iphone with a cute case. Don't want to leave the house (?)... nothing beats a fluffy pair of Uggs slippers. Oh one more thing... I am certainly not mad at the iconic Isabel Marant wedge sneaks in vibrant purple, not mad at all.
