exotic purple orchid

i know i know. we aren't ready, and we don't want to rush into anything. but let's be honest- we can't avoid the inevitable. fall is just around the corner.

i always love to preface my fall shopping with a look at the pantone fashion color report.

i stopped by earlier this week to see what to expect for fall 2010. pantone always offers great descriptions and designers reasoning behind the colors for each season.

even before stopping by i had a hunch about this purple orchid.

i have been seeing it everywhere. it is really trying to find a way into my closet.

i have historically not preferred purple, but through the years of developing my own style i have learned to never say never.
with the right combination any color can be absolutely stunning.

and this "exotic purple orchid, a purple leaning to fuchsia, is an unexpected choice for fall, imbuing a bit of magic and vibrancy to the season."

there is so much to look forward to.
