Murple and Morange

Woo, one more day to the weekend! I can make it! 
My hair is morphing from purple to magenta to pink. I say we call it murple: morphed purple.

  • Dress - A Dress Town Original, vintage 70s, thrifted; purchased here last weekend on a buy one get one 40% off deal for average $15.99
  • Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last worn here in April with blue and gingham

Isn't the dress fabulous? I had a few coworkers do double-takes; is it or isn't it vintage? Yup, it is! I like looking for vintage fabric that is pretty timeless. These colours are a little on the 70s wacky side, but I love the pops of orange, turquoise and magenta in it.
Bonus: it matched my hair again!

The stuff:
What's better than orange shoes?

Vintage-y bling:
More orange! Orange earrings!

  • Ring - late 90s
  • Earrings - vintage 70s, vintage fair

Even my lipstick was orange! MAC's "Morange" - that's none more orange. It's orange to 11!


  1. I am agog with admiration for that dress!! The colours look great on you, playing off both your hair and those great gumball earrings.

  2. I would wear that dress in a heartbeat, I love it! xxx

  3. I really like the print on your dress - the orange shoes are perfect with it! Hope it wasn't too hot for you to wear - I remember you commenting it wasn't the most breathable fabric! Certainly looks good on you, especially with the murple hair!

  4. That dress is FAB-YOU-LOUS!!! I LOVE when I see those 70's prints peeking out in a rack of more modern clothing. Looks fantastic on you.

  5. Morange is my new favorite word of the day, after "coffee". You look amazing and your hair keeps getting better and better. xo

  6. WOW (insert little scream here)
    This dress is soooooooooooooo cool ! I knew it was gorgeous when I read your bought it and saw it there hanging. But now that you are wearing it it looks more spectacular than imagined (if that were possible)

  7. Absolutely stunning! What a gorgeous dress, and you look fab!

  8. fabulous dress and fabulous Morange (mwahaha, such a perfect word), this is one of my favorite color combos ever and you look gorgeous in those vibrant colors!

  9. Very cool dress! The magenta splotches match your hair, and the orange shoes work with it perfectly. Here's to Murple and Morange!
