Colour I’m currently dishing on: Magenta

Happy Thursday folks.  I stuffed up and forgot to have bf take my photo today (it was hot) and I’m just wearing jeans, my awesome Aquaman chucks and a Witchery top – so sure to be repeated.

So instead today I’m just going to talk about the colour I am loving at the moment: Magenta. It is possibly a little odd that I love Magenta so much since I don’t really like pink or purple (although I’m slowly warming to dark plum). But I love the dark pinky-puple (Magenta, dark fuschia, mulberry, whatever you want to call it) that sits between the two. Go figure.

It’s just a great vibrant colour.  Feminine, but not girlie.  And better yet, it can be worn all year round (in my humble opinion)!

I have no idea of its popularity at the moment. I have a few magenta items in my wardrobe. But I find myself wanting more. And last night at dinner one of my friends was wearing a gorgeous magenta skirt. So I’m not alone in being a fan.
