Rose foncé et orange


How do you feel about these two colors together?



Before you say too much I do have a coat in that color (well, two of them, but who's counting?)

Well...not such a good match...I have posted several shots of ladies with REALLY red hair, but not in pink! :)

Shell Sherree said...

It's exuberant! I'd take a rough guess and say she knows how to party.

Andy said...

Nice photo of Ronald McDonald.

I love the coat, the colour is cute. But with the hair it's probably not the best match! But, usually I love the combination of pink and orange together: just not fire truck orange :|

Starman said...

It boggles the mind that women can color their hair like that and really believe it looks good.

Virginia said...

Welcome to Paris where hair coloring goes to another level. Sometimes I wonder if they all buy it at the Franprix and do it themselves!!!

Now G, your coat is way way brighter and cuter than this one.

Bibi -- I would say that this is perhaps intentionally orange, but to each his/her own.

Shell -- You always have such kind comments to make about my "people on the street" and I agree that she is a self-confident, fun-loving person.

Andy -- Hummmm... Interesting!

Brittany -- I like different color combinations but never really considered my hair color as a variable - hah!

Starman -- Awww.. I always figured you for pink or purple hair but I guess not?

Virginia -- Oh, that coat? Well then, I guess I have three pink coats (two of which are this same peptol bismol pank)

I don't know, two colors that look very French to me!

Interesting juxtaposition.

Reminds me of when my wife and I were in Egypt. She has naturally red hair, and attracted quite a few glances from Egyptian women, paricularly the younger ones.

P.S.: I've gone back to posting my "Photo of the day/Photo du jour." Please drop by if you can.

I can only image the clothing she is wearing underneath, but I'm a live and let live kind of gal, so if she likes the combination I say go for it! Good thing France doesn't have Clinton and Stacy to pounce on her...

Amanda said...

i say if she likes it, whatever floats your boat!

Loree said...

Mind boggling hair colour but as long as she likes it ... who cares?

Alexa said...

We don't all need to dress in black all the time! (Even though I usually do.) I have a friend who refers to this hair color as "postmenopausal red." :~}

"All things French" said...

Bonjour Genie:- I love the colour of the coat ~ rose fonce ~ but non! to the colour of the hair and the earings.
Keep it simple I say!

The right red and right pink could work together - THAT does not in my opinion.
p.s. Have you ever read 'Anne of Green Gables'...this post reminds me of how Anne would sigh over how she couldnt wear pink.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Paul -- Je suis d'accord.

Bear -- How fortunate for your wife -- I always wished for red hair. I could have it but not a "real" color for me.

Liz -- I am with you. Just look at her orange "coordinated" earrings!

Amanda -- I am with you, whatever floats your boat!

Loree -- Ditto!

Alexa -- I can always count on you for a great comment!! Post Menopausal Red for sure!!

Dianne -- Great! Then you would approve of my coats at least!

Indie Tea -- Yes, I have read AOGG although it has been many years. Great recall.

Sara Louise said...

At one of the weddings I went to this summer, there was a lady there with that color hair and the glasses with the exact color rims! Because of how intentional it was, she looked pretty fab! (plus her hair was actually combed!)

JM said...

Well captured, Genie!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Sara Louise -- I wish that I was daring enough to go with one of these bright colors (hair). I would probably go with a bright orange or pink, hummmm.....

JM -- Merci

Randy said...

To me this says No Fear! Good for her.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Randy -- She certainly did stand out in the crowded street of Rue Cler!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

We have shrubs here with pink flowers (I have forgot the name of them!) and that's great except when Autumn shows up and the pink flowers linger an the foilage turns orange. It's a mind twister.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Yogi -- I am wondering azaleas but do not think that they do well as far north as Tulsa. Hummmm... rhododendrum?

Before we say anything, what if the person is you???

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

I'm colour-challenged and so far as I can see there is nothing wrong in the lady's choice of colouring - doesn't bother me in the slightest.
