Magenta Matchy

It's official: my hair exactly matched this magenta shirt today.
People loved it - I never had that reaction when I matched my red hair. As you can see below, the back of my head has retained the full deep violet purple, while the front has faded out to magenta with blonde streaks (from the sun, most likely). I'll have to re-dye it for the Blogger Meet-Up!

  • Shirt - Banana Republic, consignment; last seen here in March as a snappy dresser
  • Bustier - Mondi, consignment; last worn way back here in December 2013 with grey plaid
  • Skirt - Hemingway, vintage 80s, consignment; last worn here in July 2014 with frozen leopard
  • Shoes - Camper; last worn here in February for Pink Shirt Day

Yesterday was really chilly and windy - today was so hot! I was not dressed for hot weather in this leather skirt, wool bustier and long-sleeved buttoned-all-the-way-up shirt! Thank goodness our building is air conditioned.
I'm shocked that I haven't worn this bustier in a year and a half, but it's a pretty specialized article of clothing. I won't get rid of it, because when will I ever find another like it? I am more surprised that it's been close to a year since I wore this black leather skirt. I thought for sure I'd worn it in the fall or winter (since it stays in my closet all year), but nope.

The stuff:
Gawd, I just love these shoes.

Eee, I love sparkly!

  • Belt - Nygard
  • Necklace - Allain, vintage 50s or 60s, vintage fair, I think
  • Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
  • Death Star ring - Stone Roses

Time to ride the couch...


  1. I think with the purple hair being a bit more unexpected the matching is more noticeable! It's not every day you find a top to match your hair though, it looks great! :)

  2. Your magenta hair matching the shirt is so splendid! xo

  3. Great match with your hair and the shirt! And yes, those shoes are fab! xxx

  4. How often are we thankful for air-conditioning out here on the west coast? Heh. You were dressed perfectly. I love that your bustier is wool and your hair matches your top. And I love how your hair is morphing in colour. Very cool.

  5. I'm not surprised at the compliments -- you look great!

  6. I totally love the shoes !
    and if I saw you in "real" life I would have most likely complimented you too.
