Elegant Purple

This week has been a lot about purple color. As I have already told my Instagram friends, I received a wonderful gift from a friend of mine in Norway – a nail polish in Mauve Naif by Yves Saint Laurent. This shade nr 16 has been sold out in Sweden since a long time and I was so incredibly happy to receive it as a gift. I will be wearing this nail polish with pleasure and think about my beautiful friend Ilona, who was so kind to find this beautiful shade for me!

I was surprised to discover how well this nail polish matched with some of my Hermes scarves. On the picture below you can see me holding my hand against Hermes Grand Apparat scarf in orange and purple.

The weather has not been that warm in the northern part of Sweden in the last couple of days. This was a perfect opportunity to wear my favorite black biker jacket which I wonderfully paired with an another beautiful Hermes scarf Zebra Pegasus in blue, yellow and purple.

Purple is definitely one of the colors which suits my face complexion and works perfectly with my light brown hair color.

Outside of my go-to neutrals, purple is my favorite eyeshadow color to wear. It brings so beautifully out the green tones in my eyes.

Purple goes with much more than one can imagine. It goes beautifully with blue, burgundy and green. It can also work well with the neutral colors, like brown, silver, grey, black and white.

Nervous about wearing purple? Start with an accessory in purple or a nail polish. This color will surprise you!

    oh an other french girl here !!!
    I love purple on my eyes because i have blue-green ones. I have somes nail polishes but not clothes or silk.
    I saw a new urban decay lipstick pandemonium, lots of girl and make up artist rave about it, may be we need to try, for parties ^^
    For me with purple the undertone (too blue or too yellow) can be tricky, because i’m fair with blue eyes bur brown hair.

    1. Dear, I completely understand you. One must be very careful with purple so it doesn’t get “too much”. And this is what I like about Sisley’s single eye shadows. They are rather transparent and never too much! If you have not tried them, please do! Have a lovely day, my beautiful friend!

  3. I just discovered your blog, and thank goodness! I have been looking for purple polish to go with my raisin items. Are you familiar with Hermes raisin, and do you think it will match. I look forward to reading the rest of your blog over the weekend. Best, Jan

    I just discovered your blog and thank goodness because I have been looking for purple ail polish to match my accessories. Are you familiar with Hermes raisin leather and do you think your polish would work? Looking forward to catching up on your blog this holiday weekend. Thank you, Jan

    1. Hello Jan, I am so glad you visited my blog and found it interesting! You are so welcome to visit it again. As for your question, I do not think that YSL nr 16 Mauve Naif would work with Hermes raisin leather, however nr 15 Violet Baroque would work perfectly well since this color and Hermes raisin are almost identical. Also, the quality of YSL nail polishes is absolutely superb! If you have not tried them yet, please do. You will love them. Have a lovely weekend! Irina

    Hello, Ms. Passion! I love you in that Hermes scarf – sensational! In fact after seeing your pic I went searching for zebra Pegasus in these colors… Alas, it is nowhere to be found! – and I mean nowhere! I search eBay every day. don’t suppose there’s another one at your local Hermes store…??? Not a one in the U.S.!!

  6. Dear Tereze,

    I am so happy you stopped by and left a comment on my blog! Zebra Pegasus is a spectacular scarf indeed. It was issued for two years ago as a part of FW2014 collection. This scarf in exactly this colorway was featured on the front page of the scarf brochure for that season. Unfortunately, this scarf is no longer available in my store in Sweden. However, I would recommend you to visit http://www.its-all-goode.com or why not to drop an email to the owner of this store, Jan. Maybe she will be able to find you this scarf?

    With kind regards,

    Irina
