Purple and Gray

Today I participated in a mock trial as a juror. It was a lot of fun. I had to wear lots of layers because the facility ran cold. So I'm wearing a long-sleeved black tee under the dress and a tweed jacket over the whole thing to keep warm. I loved the idea of doing charcoal gray tights and shoes with the purple dress and b/w tweed. Everyone responded well to the color of the dress. I think because it stood out so well against the neutrals. This is the first time I've worn these pieces together though I've had both for some time. What do you think?

    Stunning, as always.  That shade of purple is magical on you.

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    Purple is my favorite color, so I would love this, naturally.  I love the matching tights and shoes, too.  You look elegant and vibrant!

    Yep, Tanya took the words right out of my mouth: "Stunning, as always."

    Great combination--one of my favorites.

    You outshine any juror I have ever seen!

    That shade of purple is gorgeous on you. Both pieces work extremely well together.

    Gorgeous combination, and great on you. This reminds me of when my boss and I interviewed a young woman to fill a position as a therapist in our agency. She wore a gray sheath dress with purple pumps and a purple bag. My boss was completely overcome with how great she looked and hired her practically on the strength of her fab gray and purple outfit. This was the first of many stunning outfits. Luckily she turned out to be a great employee:-)

    Love it! I'm already a huge purple fan and have gotten into gray this year. This combo is inspiring....

    Love that purple on you! You are one stylish juror!

  • Lantana replied 8 years ago

    Not just any old purple and not just any old grey, you have chosen glorious shades that complement each other perfectly, resulting in a strong yet gentle palette. You are amazing.

    You look gorgeous in the purple/gray combo.. Lovely outfit, DV!

    Adelfa - I have really been crushing on purple and gray for the past week. I have worn gray suits with purple accessories to interviews. I just don't have a purple bag that I would take on interviews. Something to consider...

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    What do I think? I think, "WOW". Pretty in purple; gorgeous in grey.

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    I think you look vibrant and professional. 

    I love mock trials. And it's fun to be juror for a change rather than on the other end of the proceedings.

    Those colors and those pieces look wonderful together. Great choices!

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    Ooh, I like. Esp. the monochromatic legs/feet :)

  • LoriFLA replied 8 years ago

    The purple is gorgeous! I love the hosiery and shoes. Perfection.

  • Thistle replied 8 years ago

    You look amazing in that gorgeous purple. And springlike. I also like the grey in place of black. It looks so lovely with the purple and the lighter shade helps evoke spring.

    A favorite color combo...and absolutely radiant on you!
