Pantone Projects: Radiant Orchid

We’re not even a week into 2014 and Pantone’s color of year (Radiant Orchid) is already everywhere. Really. It is. A quick Google image search will prove that this pretty purple is going to have a very good year.

Several bloggers I follow are already on the radiant orchid bandwagon (like this one, this one, this one, and this one), so I thought I’d jump on too. Going through my stash of ugly dresses, I found a few promising pieces, as you can see below. I even found a previous refashion that could use some re-refashioning in my regular closet.

I was able to find enough not-quite radiant pieces to line up four refashion projects for this spring, and I’m already excited to start. I’ll begin posting the Pantone Projects after Valentine’s Day, but there will be plenty of regular projects between now and then, so don’t forget to stop by every once in a while.
