When it comes to colors that I think I can rock, purple and orange-y red together are not up there very high on the list.  But when another chance came around at grabbing  the Hawaiian Hideaway dress from Pin Up Girl clothing I pounced on this dramatic colorway.

It turns out that purple and red look much better on me than I had expected!  And, as a bonus, all the perfect accessories were already in my closet, just waiting for the right dress.  I was especially pleased that my enormous purple Malco Modes petticoat was such a perfect match, since i can hardly wear the thing otherwise on account of its enormous poofiness.  Of course, I haven't worn it with the petticoat much this summer since it's been way too hot for that sort of layering!
