I do really like purple. I think between purple and blue are the two colors I could use more of in my closet. I love love love, lavendar, the color, the flowers, the smell of it as essential oil in my bath. Deep purple is also a favorite, the jewel tone that is so rich, it looks so lovely. So when I brought this dress out of my closet, I saw those colors, as well as fuschia, which is a color that is sprouting up in spring fashion as well. This isn’t a wrap dress, a style of dress I like, but rather a stretchy dress with rusching on the side to give attention to the waist. This is something I do, as this an area I do try to accent or draw attention to. I do have a great tailor who can take in clothes very well, so I have been there a couple of times ( wink, wink). The dress is so comfortable, and I like that you can wear it with the dress down to show your shoulders, and that it is a nice length. I decided to wear it with my favorite gladiator sandals you may see more and more of in the summer. Sofft, my favorite Swedish brand for shoes, are great as they have cushion and stability, as well as style. No orthotic looking shoes for me! Remember those MBT? ( apologies to anyone that wears them and likes them). I am carrying my Brahmin bag, you didn’t know that crocodiles come in a lavender/blue hue? This color I just loved and I do like handbags. My husband, I think wishes I went back to shoes! Lastly, I was on the hunt awhile ago for a purple vintage necklace. I found this on one of my 3 favorite jewelry haunts, and it had a latch on the back so it can be worn as a brooch. They have some of the neatest vintage jewelry I have seen and really good deals. Why have I never seen my grandmas jewelry? I bet she had great taste.
