The colour without name


Outfit 12.02.2010
Cashmere/silk/cotton sweater and grey oxfords, Massimo Dutti. Grey skirt, H&M. Scarf, Bershka. Necklaces, Pull&Bear. Two-finger bow ring, Erica Anenberg. Cream trench coat, ZARA.

As you may have already noticed through my previous posts, this lovely sweater is one more of my recent winter sale buys. I love its hue, as it goes with almost everything I have in my winter wardrobe and it adds some subtle colour to any basic outfit. However, I've been busting my head out to find the correct name for it, but nothing seems good enough. I thought of describing it as "purplish red" but is that the best we can do?

Please name this colour for me!

Just for the heck of it, I thought I'd share that Mac names this shade as "Diva" for lipstick and "Beauty Marked" for eyeshadow. Not that it helps in any way...

Since there seems to be no "official" name for this colour, you can always improvise ;)
"Plum Vibes" sounds good to me!
