Purple Passion | Thriftanista in the City


Purple Passion

I am very grape colored today. I matched my lips to my purple dress and I did it on purpose. It's been a while since I went into purple geek mode. If you're new here and haven't already figured it out, I love the color purple. I like purple things. I named my daughter Violet. I am about that purple life.

I'm also very 80s today in a secretary dress thrifted a couple of years ago. Elastic waist dresses are one of my favorite styles to wear. It gives me a reason to wear fun belts and they accentuate my waist. This one is also a magnificent shade of purple. I can't believe I don't wear it more often.

I paired with another rarely worn favorite - a necklace from the estate sale thrift haul. The shiny, colorful globes remind me of something Mrs. Roper from Three's Company would wear with one of her ultra fab caftans.

My last thrifted piece is the white wool short coat. The shape and look is reminiscent of 80s fur coats which I would love to put in my closet. However, I do not want to pay the cost of cleaning a thrift store fur. The wool coat will do for now.

As you can see, I am standing on a sheet of ice. Temperatures rose then fell on our snow coated everything creating blocks of ice all over. I only slipped once but no falls. Come on, Spring!

Who among you has a passion for purple?
