Color trends - really expensive handbag edition

I have been keeping an eye on The Purse Blog lately even though I am far too cheap to ever consider paying for even the cheapest of their purses (which are mostly in the thousands of dollars; this is really the very high end we're talking about here), and despite the fact I think a good many popular bag designs are pretty darn fugly. But it's a way to keep an eye on color trends and such, and I've seen a number of things lately that I do like a lot. This orchid (or grape) color is delicious - and I also really love this muted tie-dye effect. I'm not at all sure how you'd translate that latter one into jewelry, but I'm sure it could be done. And I'm definitely going to look for some beads in that orchid color.

Completely unrelated to anything: want to see something really adorable? Take a look at Lisa's Icelandic sheepdog puppies. I'm a cat person, in general, but who can resist puppies?

That shade of purple is nearly neon, huh? It's pretty and wicked. I think the polymer clay artists could come up with something to reflect that muted tie-dye handbag.

Awwwwwwwww precious puppies! Makes me want one--like I need another mouth to feed!

If it makes you feel any better about it, the puppies are $700 each. (and five out of seven are spoken for already, last I heard!)

I guess that grape-y color is in for spring, because here's another one: http://www.purseblog.com/jimmy-choo/jimmy-choo-embossed-rikki-shoulder-bag.html
