There is nothing like a splash of color to brighten up a dreary winter’s day.
Think boldly… think fuchsia and orange!
I had an hour to kill today and decided to go shopping at the local Macy’s. I happened to be wearing a nice orange turtleneck that I received as a Christmas gift. I really like the orange color, but don’t have too many things to wear it with. I found some lovely scarves in the right color-range on an unbelievable mark-down price and couldn’t resist buying one. I love the combination of pinks and orange together with a bit of green and gold sparkle … it was so pretty!
As I stood admiring the scarf against the orange sweater I was seeing it definitely needed a hot pink skirt to round out an outfit. My next stop was a browse through the fabric store where I found the perfect piece of coordinating fuchsia fabric. It’s a boucle wool with a little nubby texture that adds a bit of interest. I picked up lining and a zipper and I’ll be ready to stitch it up in the morning. Can’t wait to get started!
