WIW: Cranberry, Pumpkin & Bordeaux

Inspired by Angie's amazing fall color combination, I have been playing with versions the last few days. About the only pink I have for fall is a pink coat.
I'm not sure about these looks, but this included all three colors. I would love to know your thoughts and suggestions.

    Loved it, Joy.  The clutch is fantastic and ties the outfit together.  You are so clever in your use of accessories, always.  I need to take some lessons.

    Wow I love this combination on you! I sort of want to see your face to get the whole effect but must admit you have solved a selfie vs. whole outfit problem.

    Thank you, Dianna and Shevia. The pumpkin in both outfits is a very soft EF shift dress, soft enough to be tucked or semi-tucked. It is a bit too big for me but I loved the color and length. The pants and boots are the Bordeaux. The beads look like cranberries, and the clutch/cross-body/shoulder bag pulls it all together. I am thinking of using blush or pastel pink with Bordeaux and pumpkin as I have those colors in warm pieces for fall.

    Love this!

    And now I’m hungry, because I realise Angie’s colour combo is the same as the cranberry tangerine jelly that my Auntie makes for me at Thanksgiving. Better than cranberry sauce!

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Please share the recipe. Are the cranberries ground raw with tangerines?
    My mother's favorite cranberry dish was a relish that was easy to make in the food processor with raw cranberries, woke oranges and a little honey.

    Now I am hungry too, Rachy.  That jelly sounds yummy, as does Joy's relish.

    Great looks! My sister actually dresses in this combination frequently. She says she just mixes all the fall colors in her outfits - rust, orange, burgundy, brown, forest green, etc.

    Lovely color combination, I like both version, different look with the same items. Wonderful Joy.

    Joy, you manage to nail each of Angie’s combinations. I love each of these and wouldn’t change anything. I would love to see your closet someday! :-)

  • RobinF replied 1 week ago

    I really like both of these. It is an unexpected color combo but really looks great. I think the orange keeps the pinks from being too sweet. The purse is perfect!

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Sara, your sister sounds like she likes fall colors. I hang those items together along with a bit of grape and dark denim this time of year.

    KILLER CUTE

    You rock my style world, Joy. 

  • karen13 replied 1 week ago

    Love this on you.  I like the proportion tucked better. Who knew this could be such a great color combo. I keep looking in my closet for new variations.

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Thank you, Angie! If it weren't for you, I would not have any style!
    Karen, thank you for addressing the tucked/untucked. I liked the look best tucked and may cut that dress off into a top and scarf.

  • skylurker replied 1 week ago

    Totally works. The fushia+pumkin looks great on you.
    I also prefer the tucked version - but I’m not keen on dress over trousers in general.

  • rachylou replied 1 week ago

    Ok. Lol. It’s really jello - the rare cranberry jello with tangerine and cranberries in it. Tangerine jello works too :)

    Just love the stuff with turkey.

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Jello! I remember cranberry! How could I forget? My dad ( a huge Jello fan) must have bought a case of it on sale. Let's see...cranberry jello with fish sticks, cranberry jello with liver and onions, cranberry jello with tuna casserole, with root beer floats, with Chef Boy R D Chop suey...no wonder I was a very skinny child!

    I missed this post.  When I finally saw it I was excited to see your version of this color combination.  

    I adore it.

    Joy for the WIN.  

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Sterling! I'm thrilled that you approve of this version.

  • Sal replied 1 week ago

    How fun Joy, this looks so great and appropriate for fall.  My favourite is the tucked version too!!

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Thank you, Sal. I need to play more with the top/dress to discover how I want to wear it. Sales goggles led me to a larger size than I usually take in this brand. I tried to shrink it in the washer and dryer but don't think it shrunk.

    You and Ms. Mary must have the deepest closets - kind of like Snoopy's dog house. You do these colours really well, Joy.

  • Jane replied 1 week ago

    I love that these colours are all references to food!

    I like this Joy, the colour combination really works.

  • Joy replied 1 week ago

    Runcarla, Ms Mary was my inspiration when she was posting her fabulous daily WIWs. Jane, I love the food references too and have a weakness for cozy oatmeal sweaters with cream.
