It's the new year people, time for a change! You must immediately toss out anything you own that is emerald green - puh-lease that is so last year's color!
I kid, I kid!
But on that sentiment, I would like to advocate that we start embracing the 2014 Pantone color of the year - Radiant Orchid.
According to their website...
Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.
...and who couldn't use some joy, love and health in the new year! With that spirit in mind, I have created a quick slide show of all things fabulous and purple...er...I mean radiant orchid!
