Default Curious irises

So I got a beautiful little girl last night. She's opaline, so she's got those gorgeous little markings from her head on down (I promise I'll post a picture later, I just only have a minute right now.), but what was interesting to me is she is violet from the top of her head to the back (that classic opaline v-shape), and then on her body she looks much more cobalt. I can't see any white patches on her body except for right at the edge of her wings, which isn't really that strange anyway, right? Here's the clincher. She has light irises. She obviously is a very bright girl, so she can't be DF spangle.

So here are my questions. Can violet just make splashes of color? Is there any other possibility than her being dominant pied? (That would actually be a bonus, I love pieds)
