Plum, Purple, & Sea Green

Todays outfit is a combination of plums, purples, and a sea green.  It is a play of contrasting colors and textures.  A plum Eileen Fisher alpaca sweater is paired with a purple bead, artisan-made necklace I found at the Art Institute of Chicago Gift Shop last Spring.  There is a slight color difference between the sweater and the necklace which allows the necklace to stand out more.  A sea-green velvet pant from Zara supports the plum sweater and purple necklace.   I am also wearing a single vintage bakelite bangle in apple green along with a pair of small plum bead drop earrings I found in Paris during a visit are there in 2013.

In the top picture, I added a bejeweled tie belt backed in a purple silk. Plum Suede wedges from Miu Miu and plum ankle socks finish this look.

Here is the outfit without the belt.  The jewels on the belt kept catching the fibers in the sweater, so I removed the belt.  The handbag is from Balenciaga in the Cassis color.
