Worn: February 8, 2014
You wouldn't be able to tell from looking at my recent blog posts, but, believe it or not, I used to not care much for purple. Purple has been Lynn's favorite color for many years and she eventually brought me around. I even dyed her hair purple!
My conversion to the purple side was aided by the shortcomings of commercially available clothing. I prefer deep, pure, saturated jewel tones when I can get them. (Apparently I'm a Winter in my own mind.) Being a redhead, I have an affinity for green, but green clothing is usually too yellow, too blue, or too light for my tastes. Whereas I frequently encounter purple in appealing shades.
I've worn this scarf, belt, and pair of earrings on the blog a number of times before and even the beret and necklace once each. And now I've added these purple tights and wedges to my wardrobe as well. Be prepared for a lot more purple outfits to come. (Though, as of writing, I've finally picked up a few great green items too!)
