The simple tee shirt style cut, seems to me to make all the difference in the everyday wearing of such a strong and purposeful color, as purple.

Cheers!

BALLET NEWS said...

Purple is always a fave colour with dancers.

Also, do you think you might be able to help ? A record attempt is being made to get the most ballerinas en pointe together ! In New York.

Be great if you could spread the word at all by directing people to my post. Cheers darling ! xx

The Original Swedish Blonde! said...

Tough one....but my sis and I would pick the Versace wool tank dress. :)

I asked my brother-in-law just for fun which he'd pick. "Well I don't think purple is really my color, but the tight Emilio Pucci one would show off my nice long hairy legs" LOL Then he goes "Do they sell them at GoodWill?" LOL
