For the longest time I never wore purple then a few years ago I branched out - I think my favourite item is my F21 purple coat! Just bought some purple boat shoes too (sounds weird but I do go boating lol).

Yay may purple reign forever!! This is totally my favourite color right now. I quite like that Victoria Beckham dress, the cut of the shoulders with the pouffed skirt is quite cute.

Fell4fashion said...

Yeah for purple!!!! Love all the vibrancy!

La Belette Rouge said...

I am usually put-off by the popping perkiness of purple. It just seems too demanding in a "look at me I am a colour you loved when you were 14 and that you will love again when you are 80." Many of these purples are pleasing in a way that doesn't make me Grimace.

Wow! These are really cool. I love them all. I usually don't wear that much purple myself. Our local university has its colors as purple and gold. That's about it for me. It's neat to see these purple outfits on these models.

ZombieLace said...

I've had my eye on a bright purple coach bag from the purse vender across the street. Though definitely completely fake, that probably sounds so trashy that I'm even looking but I can't help it! I'm a moth to bright purple flame!
