Prints and Textures

You know when two colours are so similar it looks like they might actually be the same? This was the case today with my plum velvet pants and burgundy silk camisole. I know the colours are distinct but the sheen provided by the textures really accentuates their similarity. The velvet and silk add even more richness to the hues and prompted me to wear them together. I added interest with a leopard print cardigan and necklace. The shades of brown go well with the deep plum and burgundy. I'm not 100% pleased with this look, but it was perfectly acceptable for a Monday! Outfits don't always turn out the same in person as they do in my head when I style them. You win some, you lose some. But, fashion is a journey and this look is but one stop along the way!
