Not a fan of purple. The cuff is gorgeous though, and the outfits great for someone who loves purple, which seems to be a lot of people.

I wear purple in the Fall/Winter seasons...it's pretty on blondes. That Vivienne, I'm reading her every day now, and she has an amazing eye.
Big props on discovering her, Tish!!

Purple was everywhere a few years back when I was in Paris - then it seemed to fade - and yet it looks like brights are hanging in.

I admit I adore many shades of deep violet. I think it works wonders for the complexion and the vibrancy is glorious. And a little can go a long way...

Jill Ann said...

Count me among the purple fans. A question, though: I find it very difficult to coordinate a lip color with a purple outfit (of any shade.). Any suggestions?

Oh, and I love, love that cuff too.

Thank you for giving us so many
interesting people to learn about
while your taking care of businees, Tish.
Vivienne never disappoints. Maria Luisa,a new name for me. That's why I can't get enough of
A Femme!

Divine. I adore all shades of purple and it is fantastic for grey haired women. I wear it a lot and LOVE what Vivienne has devised. For lipstick choice Jill Ann, go for a pink that is a cool/blue pink. Even Magenta is good but it must have no hint of orange in it.

Every post is an introduction to a new designer. I have to do lots of google searches. I must say I am really enjoying the homework!
