Strangely, I think the thing that initially drove me away from purple/pink (it's incredibly girly) is the same reason I find myself drawn to it now (it's wonderfully, unabashedly girly). And the purple and pink combination has a surprising amount of range: you can pair lavender with hot pink, or keep both colors muted for a soft, romantic look, or move the pink a little towards peach for slightly different take. Or you can go big with both colors — in image 6, lots of color and lots of texture makes for a look that's rich and luscious and feminine but strong.
What do you think? Purple and pink: unbearably girly… or surprisingly sophisticated?
