Very Peri! The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

collage of Very Peri outfits

Aren’t you all very tired, by this time, of seeing me in Very Peri and all shades of purple? I am sorry, I just love it for the moment. And not only are you going to see me again in that color, but also all these fabulous women who joined us this month!

Btw, why not join us next month? You don’t have to be a blogger, just join in with the fun! We would love to feature you!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Very Peri!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

Very Peri outfit

My purple peacoat from Target is at least 15 years old so clearly a Good Buy. I love the way it pairs with this lighter purple sweater that was gifted from Rosegal  about 4 or 5 years ago. Not bought, but I have worn it a bunch and really like the color and the lightweight knit for spring.

 

Michelle of My Bijou Life

Here are my Good-Buys. I love both these purple jeggings and the tie-dye top with purple in it. I feel good when I wear purple, and this outfit in particular is at the top of my list.

Pantone color of 222
This purple floral dress sadly had to go good-bye. After my second daughter it didn’t quite fit in the top. It’s too bad because I loved it!

Sheila of Ephemera

Very Peri hair

Purple has always been one of my favourite colours – I’ve had purple hair for several years, but now I find myself sporting a trendy colour with my “peri” hair!

Lilac coat
I’m sending over my purple outfit!! This faux fur coat has been one of my favorites, and even though I don’t get to wear it often, I find it goes with so much in my closet.

 

Gail of Is this mutton?

Very Peri outfit worn by a fashion blogger

I love all variations of purple. The short tie wrap is very peri, worn with a white roll neck, purple trousers and white boots.

And here is my Very Peri outfit!

Cozy Chic in a purple coat

I told you before, I am in a purple cloud at the moment. My purple suit, lilac trousers and purple skirt are the proof of that. Now I like the colour a lot. When I received this coat for a collaboration years ago I didn’t. But I thought, well it’s something different! I gave it away without ever wearing it. And I do regret that so much!! So it was a Good-Bye but it could have been a Good Buy.

April’s theme will be: Easter egg colours!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to shelbeeontheedge@gmail.com or to batennancy@gmail.com

By joining The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book, you agree to receive a monthly reminder email for next month!

    I love all of the variations of purple on you lovely ladies! I wasn’t able to find one suitable purple item in my wardrobe. I must work on that! Great job to all!

    You definitely ARE in a purple cloud, Nancy, and I must say that the colour suits you.
    I can’t believe you let go of that wonderful coat, but then again I used to have a purple coat as well. And where has it gone too? Exactly 🙂 xxx

      It is, I just hope anyone else is very happy with it, lol!

    So many great looks. I love the little lacy hem or layer at the bottom of Shelbee’s skirt and the pairing of the peri with chocolate brown. I remember Jodie’s booties…who could forget them…so pretty. And her faux fur in very peri. Love all the other gals’ looks. Periwinkle is kind of a hard color for me to pin down. Not blue and not purple. But when I see it, I usually recognize it. Look how long and lean Gail is with her peri ensemble. And your coat and leather look with that snuggly scarf are absolutely fierce.

    Your coat is so pretty! That color is so beautiful and not a color you see often (I think). I love Shiela’s boots!

      No I never seen a coat like this one anymore! Even the more sorry I am, lol. Thanks Carrie!

    So much purple!! It looks good on everyone. Why in the world did you give that gorgeous coat away? It looks fabulous on you. Oh, well — someone else can enjoy it now. It’s all good . . .

    Great choices Nancy. Sorry I didn’t get one to you, it’s not a shade I wear very often. Nice to see all these fabulous examples. Well done x Jacqui x
