RE: Purple’s Delight

Posted on

Hello every one!

Thank you all for your comments on last week’s post. I truly, appreciate them. 

This week, I’m responding to some emails and text messages, in regards to the purple and orange colour combinations.  I remember vividly, a friend that had read the blog, sent a text saying that she wasn’t so sure about the purple and orange, though purple happens to be one of her favourite colours.

I  want to coax her mind and other skeptics, into understanding the beautiful combination with these two colours. So, here are some pictures and how both colours can be mixed. 

In the above picture we have, Cheryl Cole to the left, Kim Kardashian in the middle and Jessica Alba to the right. These lovely ladies are colour blocking in purple and orange.

Please notice how Cheryl Cole and Kim K, accessorised their outfits with a pastel blue belt and turquoise blue sandals.  Jessica Alba played it simple with nude coloured shoes with gold accessories.

Ok let me, bring it closer to home soil.

This lovely outfit is from a Nigerian based Fashion designer, Ophelia Parlewho was kind enough to give me some pictures to help explain the purple and orange combination whilst using ankara fabric.

Thank You Molly B! :*

Aside from the purple chiffon fabric, that is accented with gold embroidery, the ankara skirting has purple, orange and yellow accents, all helping to make the purple pop!

In the next picture is another creation by Ophelia Parle. The different colour palette on the maxi skirt almost matches the same purple colour palette I put up last week. LOL!

The differences are the lilac, blue and red. Lol!

Here are some centre pieces in purple and orange that should be able to convince any unbeliever of purple and orange.

So, there you have it, Purple and Orange. Lol!

Up next, by request, Green and Yellow.
