OOTD :: of radiant orchid and dazzling blue





I almost saved this outfit for Wordless Wednesday because I think it’s such a perfect outfit – the colors! the swingy skirt! the owl pendant! – that it transcends explanation. But Dazzling Blue is really just TARDIS blue in disguise, so it’s only fitting that I make use of this ensemble today.

Unfortunately, I’m truly at a loss for what to say about it.

Perhaps I could point out the fact that this dress has pockets? Or what if I told you it’s made of this lovely, thick stretchy fabric that hugs without accentuating? And I guess I should make note of that lovely pleated neckline that adds visual interest to an otherwise ultra-simple bodice.

Well. I guess I did have some thoughts after all, eh? Anyhow, I think I should stop while I’m ahead and simply say I feel pretty in this outfit and encourage you to head on over to Alex’s site and join us in Color Me Tuesday.

Pantone, ftw!

  1. Those colors are great together! Pantone needs to know about Radiant Orchid dating TARDIS blue – they’re a pretty hot combination.

    The owl necklace is pretty cute, so similar to ’70s style. They must be making a comeback.

    • My mother owned a similar owl necklace that I remember playing with as a kid in the ’70s. Comeback indeed!

      And I do think Pantone has an inkling – they did throw them together slyly on that infographic. Coincidence? I think not! ;p

      P.S. You’ve got a package headed your way.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Carrie! I’ve been stalking your daughter swaps and can’t wait for mine to be a wee bit older so we can do the same. 😀

    • Ahaha! I can’t take credit for the color pairing – I just followed your Pantone infographic for inspiration. More to come in the following days…

      • I just don’t like them with a ton of other big players in industrial manufacturing that have given no care to environmental or ethical compositions until they had to and it’s still just pissing in the wind.

        Then I don’t like them decadently deciding on colours/fashions and acting/being seen like the gods of colour when they’re just copying the order of the spectrum, light is light and was there before they came along. Even complimentary colour was there before them.

        That does not change my opinion of your outfit though 🙂

  2. Ooh, this is PERFECT! I’ve heard you say you don’t have a defined waist – either you’re lying, or this dress is magical!
    I updated my post with a bonus Dazzling Blue outfit. I think you’ll get a kick out of it (just don’t make fun of my hair).

    • Never! I’ve had my share of bad hair days. Laughing at others would just be bad karma. And yes, the dress is magical. I really don’t have a waist. Honest!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
