A Blaze Of Color: Visible Monday

You know I am a mostly-neutrals woman who occasionally dips her toes into color. And when I do, it’s usually some shade of blue (daring!). So when I saw the vibrant fuchsia silk top at the Molly Mutt Thrift, I decided to take a chance. And I do think the shade is a gorgeous one, but it makes my naturally pink complexion pinker.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

Always room in my closet for a bright color, but preferably on the bottom half!:

 

 

The top is by Elie Tahari  (similar) and has a wonderful ombre pattern. the pencil skirt (sim) is ancient, but well-loved. Old booties, too by Sofft (sim). And a fabulous hand-crafted black tassel necklace by Suzanne Carillo.

Ceramic kitty has a great ocean view.

Even with a darker filter, the deep pink really stands out.

  1. Gorgeous top, Patti! Love the slight bell sleeve and the addition of the fabulous tassel necklace. As for the top’s color, as others have said, you look stunning in fuchsia!

    Have a great week!

  2. You are slaying the colour, Patti! that top is wonderful, I’d give it a home in a heartbeat! Loving the ceramic kitty, too! xxx

  3. Patti, you are absolutely stunning in this outfit! I love the bell sleeves and the way you’ve teamed it with the short skirt and boots and Suzanne’s fabulous tassel necklace. xx

  4. Oh, wow, that pink is really gorgeous on you, Patti! I have had a few Elie Tahari pieces over the years and they are wonderful quality. I’m not featuring a bright this week; tiger-stripe is a neutral, right? Thank you so much for hosting!

  5. I love fuchsia. Cannot really see whether it suits you too, but hey.. I sometimes buy clothes from a colour which isn’t me either. Still love them. And I can see why you love this top.

  6. Bell sleeves! My favourite. I love these colours and it looks fabulous on you. Pink is vibrant and healthy. Suzanne’s necklace looks great with it too. Thanks for the party, Patti.

  7. hahaha I thought that kitty was real and you’d photoshop painted it all up to look vibrant like your top. I kept looking at it worrying if it would be okay on that balcony and not try to jump down. Then…I read your text and felt dumb. lol

  8. I adore that colour on you! You need more super saturated colours. I think it is wonderful next to your skin.

    The whole outfit is super chic.

    bisous

  9. Oh my gosh, I luv that top. The color is absolutely fabulous on you. What are you talking about the wrong color for you, girl?! It’s stupendous. Get more hot colors now.

  10. You can’t go wrong with such a lovely shade of colour! Maybe you just need to get used to it. My skin is ‘pinkish’, too, and both red and pink suit me, just not very pale (or yellow) shades.

    • colgiatunatrons, the book looks very fab, can't wait to buy a copy! it must be such a great feeling to be able to dance around in excitement AND tell the world.

    • My all time favorite is “karaniwang tao”. The resopnsibility of every man especially ordinary man has been stressed here. That I guess struck me most since this song reminded us on the role we should have on our environment.

  11. What a gorgeous shade of pink Patti. It really suits you. Thank you for hosting the link-up as always xxxx

  12. WOW, that is a a stunning top on you Patti! It doesn’t make you look ‘pinker’ in the photos. It looks amazing! xx
