Violette Valentine

With Valentine's Day at our heels consider breaking up with the traditional red and pink palette for a fling with the magnificent modesty of violet (violet flowers surprisingly stand for modesty, though the colour can suggest royalty, intuition, or spiritual protection). I did some pseudo shopping on for some Valentine's Day indulgences.
