Winged Inspiration

Birds are fascinating, beautiful, and a great fashion inspiration for color combinations.  I love documentaries about their elaborate (and sometimes funny) mating/wooing rituals.  You've all seen the Michael Jackson moves on this bird, right? 
The Australian Finch Gouldian, displays two of the colors I chose to wear together....a bright yellow and purple.
  Here's my version.

  7. Yellow finches are my fave; I used to grow their fave flowers to attract them outside my kitchen window. You look beautiful - the scarf is perfect.

  8. It is always a pleasure to see the lovely birds at the bird feeder in winter. It's also a pleasure to see you in such wonderful colors. Particularly the purple scarf is amazing and additionally it look so cosy and warm.
