Today, the authorities of color at Pantone announced Radiant Orchid to be the 2014 Color of the Year. We must admit, we’re plum crazy over this royal hue. We’re jumping on this fashion moment just in time for the holiday social season. Here, our Pantone-inspired picks:

  1. Melrose Necklace, $150; 
  2. Black Velvet Long-Wear Cream Shadow, $25; 
  3. Damsel in a Dress, $8.50;
  4. Kate Spade Velvet Smoking Slipper in Voila, $238; 
  5. Indigo Shirttail Mini in Sequins, $138;

    The picture of the Phalenopsis orchids needs to be rotated 90 degrees to the right. Its is like showing a picture of roses upside down. The dark purple lip is always on the bottom. Please fix the picture as it is driving me crazy. I love orchids and have about a 250 plant habit in a little greenhouse in the backyard. Otherwise, I enjoy Southern Living.
