I’ve been having a love affair. It’s been going on for most of this year. It’s a passion. A passion for purple. I find myself wearing purple more than any other colour. I wouldn’t say that purple is my favourite colour, but lately it’s been invading my wardrobe in a huge way. In previous years, I’ve harboured penchants for red, blue, pink and black, but I’m ready to dub 2012 the Year of Purple for me.
– Black turban (vintage)
– Purple velvet jacket from Friperie
– Black Living Doll dress with beaded fringe
– Leona Edminson fishnet tights
– Black sequinned heels (snaffled from my friend’s donation-pile)
– Beetle ring (gift from my parents)
– Amethyst ring (which belonged to my grandmother
– Blue stone ring (Gift from Sarah)
I had to take the photos inside, because it was pouring with rain. Sadly, the lack of light in my kitchen has made the photos turn out terribly grainy, so I apologise for that.
I usually pair this jacket with flowing gypsy skirts. Today I decided to give it a slightly more burlesque edge by wearing it with a wiggle dress, fishnet tights and sky-high heels. I think that my morning soundtrack of The Dresden Dolls influenced my outfit choices today. That happens to me quite often. I regularly find that my outfits are coloured by what I’m currently listening to or watching. I had a friend at uni who would often tell me that she could always tell what movie I’d watched the night before by looking at what I was wearing that day.
Does that ever happen to you? Do you find your film and music choices steer the way you dress?
