The Color Purple

As a child, I loved the color purple.
It was the second best color after pink.

As I got older, I grew to dislike the color,
for some inexplicably reason.

But the flame has rekindled
over the last few years.

And with these gorgeous images,
how can anyone not love the color purple?

Warmest regards,

My favorite Vogue vintage print there. Love the muted purples, like wisteria on the vine.
I spent my lunch hour tooling around your archives :)

Just love all the pics ... Purple has been a fav colour of mine for quite some time. The dress on the right looks so crisp and great for an afternoon tea ....

is dat niet het mooie van paars??? je hebt paars, en paars;) en een mooie diepe donkere kleur paars kan een ruimte iets chique's geven, luxe uitstralen. Maar een misty kleur paars geeft weer iets liefs en teders, terwijl een HELDERE kleur paars(volg je me nog??;)) toch ook wel het voorjaarsgevoel kan aanwakkeren hoor......maar voor mn kleding kies ik voor de mistyvariant, en voor in huis...lavendel.....dat is ook paars...die mogen we niet vergeten he ;)!

Geniet van deze zonnige dag!

Love that first vintage image. Now that I think of it I need to add some of it to my wardrobe. It just has to be the right shade to look good on me. I really like the dress on the left.
Wishing you a good day,

I have love purple for years. Some would go as far as say it's my signature color, except I don't wear it all the time, I just really love it.

My iPod? Purple. My signature shoe, the Brian Atwood Rida I chose for my first blog, which still shows up on my header and avatar? Purple. And when the time came to choose a color for my beloved Rebecca Minkoff Nikki, which comes in all the colors of the rainbow, what did I pick? Grape (purple.)

These photos are fabulous!! Even more so because of the purple ;-)

Oh such beautiful images! I loved the colour purple as a child and much like you grew away from it as I got older. Luckily I have come back to my senses since it is one of my best colours! Love both of those dress!

I never liked purple, I think I preferred "earth tones", whatever that means. I grew to appreciate it again when I saw how beautiful it was in the garden, particularly juxtaposed with vibrant orange, and how it was often mixed WITH earth tones in textiles. Now a splash of purple is fine with me!
