radiant orchid – WHAT? it’s just a pretty purple {thrift style thursday}

I’m not sure if it’s actually Pantone’s Radiant Orchid, but this purple-y color is a color that I really love to wear. Pantone named it the color of the year for 2014.

Here’s a skirt…

  1. Haha…it really is just a pretty purple, let’s get real ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love the “radiant” part though! It sounds so much fancier and sophisticated. Adorable, as usual!!

    1. Thanks Justine! Yeah, I get such a huge kick out of color names. You’re right though – definitely sounds sophisticated and even smells good in my head. Ok, I’m weird.

    1. Thanks Z! I bought it from ebay but the company that makes it is Henkaa (it’s actually a dress, but I’m wearing it as a skirt). The link to Henkaa is above in the post, although I’m not sure if they have that same color anymore =/. It’s a great company and their dresses are such good quality – made in Canada, too. I have several of them ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ooh I loooove this skirt – it’s so flowy and pretty! I would seriously just twirl in that thing all day long haha! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Beautiful! And I especially love it with that adorable lace bolero jacket!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
