I really love the shelves. Purple is fantastic, I'm especially fond of it in handbags. I have a lilac Chloe and a mauve MJ that I carry constantly. I find they go with everything.

My grandmother always said that purple was a color that worked for everyone. She was right. Who doesn't look good in purple?

Funny how I zeroed in on the Halston dress before I knew it was Halston... Love Halston's Heritage line.

I am a huge fan of purple, plum or violet - whatever it is, I'm usually pretty happy with it. I especially was drawn to both Halston dresses, you could almost feel as if you were floating away in the first one. Very enjoyable post!

Just got a purple bag and I am loving it! I never had considered purple such a great color before, but it's feminine without being too over the top girly. Love this post. Great job Carrie!

PS do you think the price of A. McQueen's designs will be going up? Might be a good time to own something created by such a fab designer!
