Averill said...

I love lavender (well, purple in all its forms, really) -- we must've been riding the same stylish wavelength today, CC!

lisa said...

I can wear light pink and jewel-toned purple but for some reason lavender and lilac look awful on me. I can still work this trend into my look with purple eyeshadow and nail polish, though! Small doses of this hue seem to be okay.

I've never thought much of lavender before, as far as fashion goes, but these are gorgeous pictures (that VS bikini Miranda is wearing is a great cut) - you may just have changed my mind. :)

Lavender is so gorgeous looking, wish I could say the same for the scent too. Apart from blue, Lavender was a hot fav at the Oscars.

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...

lovely lavender! i was never really into this colour until i started acquiring some vintage pieces and what do you know - they're all in this shade. i promise you it's not deliberate. lol.

thanks for dropping by, CC!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Personally I find lavender a difficult hue to wear, but when it goes towards grey (like the M. Kors dress) then it's so lovely!

daisychain said...

I'm starting to love lavender, just need some pieces in my closet now.

Erika said...

Ooh, Etro and Halston are my absolute favorites - the draping and flow of each piece is divine.

Congratulations Ruth!! :)
