Radiant Orchid, Pantone 2014 Color of the Year

Pantone_Radiant_Orchid_Color_of_the_Year

 

As you are probably already aware, Pantone (the global authority on color), named Radiant Orchid the color of the year for 2014.  Described by Pantone as an “enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones”, Radiant Orchid is a “captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm”.  Charm me that indeed. As a self proclaimed girly-girl (and one who’s favorite color has been purple since childhood), Radiant Orchid is right up my alley.

 

Shown in many designer collections during the Spring 2014 Runway shows, Radiant Orchid will be everywhere in stores this Spring, and I can’t wait.  It’s already popped up in the form of accessories, and I’m sure a lot more clothing pieces will be available shortly.  Here are a few Radiant Orchid pieces that I have my eye on that are currently in stores.

    I don’t have much radiant orchid currently in my wardrobe, so I am pumped to start buying up pieces in this super girly shade. That MK watch is a good start. 🙂

    Happy weekend, doll!

      Hahahaha, I created an image map. I learned through this tutorial on Pugly Pixel. http://goo.gl/Eef5kl It’s a lot of work, but work the effort in my opinion.
