|Sweater & Earrings: Thrift;|
Jeans & Jacket: Lane Bryant;
This seems to happen a lot at work: there will be days when the majority of people just randomly wear the same colors. It seems to happen most often with black & white. But today, it was this wonderful shade of purple that suddenly appeared on several of the ladies on staff.

I researched this color on a couple of sites and found a variety of names: Magenta, Medium/Dark Violet, Dark Orchid, and Royal Lilac. I have always thought of magenta as a shade of red; but, whatever you call it, the color looks fabulous on anyone who wears it. I purchased the sweater and earrings recently at a thrift store….it amazes me how close the earrings and scarf are in color selection; they could have been designed by the same person. I usually do not wear a dominant print in a scarf and a multi-colored earring together, but the light neutral in the jacket seemed to help it work this time.

FYI…when researching the color names, I found the Spring/Summer 2011 Color Forecasts. There is a light version of this color which is predicted to be big this spring and it is called Soft Lilac. It is among a variety of soft colors with hand tinted finishes which we supposedly will see frequently on the sales racks soon.
