Outfit 12.3.11: green and purple

outfit 12.3.11: green and purple by oranges and apples

This is an outfit from ages ago – one month! So behind with the outfits! The cardigan was a gift from the ever lovely Mrs. Bossa, when she had a clear out to make space for her new Marni-inspired wardrobe. It’s just perfect for me though! such a bright grassy green, lovely! I paired it with purple cos green and purple are on opposite sides of the colour wheel, and opposites attract (not really, I just fancied it). The skirt is newly thrifted too, its velvet! I haven’t owned anything velvetty for years.

* cardie – gift * top under – vero moda * velvet skirt – charity shop * shoes – el naturalista * brooch – me made

    Awww, that skirt is crazy! (I mean that as a compliment 🙂 ) For a long time I didn't know what to think of large florals but I believe I'm warming up to them. Oh, and the rest of the outfit is great too.

    Love the colors and the floral! I really like those reddish shoes too. I'm on the lookout for some cute red sandals/MJs…

    I love all the colors in your outfit.

    So cute! I'm loving all the color. And you're totally rocking the floral skirt – I wish I could pull off florals, but I always feel silly!

  • WendyBrandes 11 April 2011, 10:19 pm

    That's a refreshing color combo!

    Love that skirt from the print to the material a perfect find. You picked great pieces to style it with especially that brooch.

    Oh how I'd love to see a close-up of the skirt – I haven't worn velvet in a long time either and your's is so beautiful! Lucky girl for scoring the gorgeous cardi – utter perfection with that rich shade of purple. I love seeing you wearing your brooches:))

    suffragette colours! well they're green, purple and white but I never liked the white part anyway because it's meant to represent purity. Those shoes look great with your skirt!

  • Spoilsofwear 12 April 2011, 8:50 pm

    This skirt take the floral trend to a whole other level – super cool!

  • Terri 15 April 2011, 12:38 am

    what a great cardi!

  • Lorena 15 April 2011, 6:07 pm

    Lovely combination Franca!
    Nobody does color like you 🙂

    This is a lovely outfit Franca.
    I would wear it, if I could borrow it from you.
    Only that to "adapt" it to my weather reality I would skip the tights 🙂
