10.9.10: red and purple, once again

10.9.10: red and purple



Once again, I’m dressing in red and purple. Usually it just sort of happens but this time it was intentional – I won this brooch on a materialised facebook giveaway and decided to build an outfit around it. When Julia gave me the brooch, she said that she’s seen me wearing purple and red on the blog and it suited me. So I thought I’d run with it and stay entirely rurple or purpled or ped (None of these work, boo!).

shirt – vero moda
skirt – zara
shoes – clarks
brooch – materialised.co.uk
earrings – swap
bag – theleatherstore on etsy

    Another winning colour combination – the skirt is such a wonderful cut on you:). You're so lucky to win the sweet brooch!

    this is such a great color combo on you!

    No, I don't find it weird or stalkerish at all that you're commenting on my blog whilst I'm here. It's actually awesome to compare notes. Good to know I could have a chance at spotting JKR when I'm here and in hindsight I do understand why a US state drivers license wouldn't work (my guess is your Luxembourg one does because its in the EU), however I don't get carded that often here and no one ever told us that as an international student we would need our passport everywhere so I was a bit shocked last night.

    Very nice! I really like the brooch and the red shoes with the purple tights.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's always great to meet fellow Edinburgh bloggers – you're right – we are a rare breed!

    And loving the purple and red outfit! x

    I really like that brooch and how you worked the outfit around it…
    I am trying to think IF I have anything in my closet to put a set like this together…

  • Between Laundry Days 25 September 2010, 7:46 pm

    I love this color combo on you! And what a great patch!

    What a delightful outfit! Red and purple is one of my favourite combinations.

  • Emmett Katherine 27 September 2010, 12:08 am

    I never would have thought to put red and purple together but they look fabulous!

    this ties to a comment i made on your other post (competition post) this is a perfect example of a real person being creative.

    Oh goodness! Your color combinations are always so daring and wonderful! Keep up the (inspiring) good work!
