Picture Perfect in Purple!

Purple is known as the color of good judgment, and if I had good judgment right now, I would be working on my next novel at this precise moment. However, I am currently wearing black and beige, and for the sake of this blog post, we will say that the colors black and beige make one want to write a fluff blog post!

Purple is a range of hues occurring between the colors of red and blue. The Oxford English Dictionary describes purple as a deep, rich shade between crimson and violet.

There is something about the color purple, in all of the color’s magnificent splendor and glory, that makes purple a picture perfect color to wear!


Purple clothing equals alluring and amazing! We all know that colors can lower or heighten our mood, and vibrant, stirring colors like purple can really rev up our engines!

Purple Fun Fact: In the ancient world, purple was worn by Roman Emperors and magistrates, and later by Roman Catholic bishops. Since that time, purple has been associated with royalty and piety.

When walking in the fashion world, the color purple stands out front and center stage! The color purple is all the rage!


In addition to royalty, purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, and we all know that fashion and style contain the elements of magical charm and brooding mystery. Purple is soothing, and if you surround yourself with purple, you will help bring on peace of mind!

Violet is a realm of purple, and also a combination of red and blue. Red is a focusing, dynamic and active energy, while blue is a calming and expansive force.

Force your way into the fashion forefront by stepping out in pretty, pleasing purples!

When accessorizing, if you are wearing black, or white, or lavenders or pinks, purple jewelry and purple purses compliment your garments to glorious perfection!

Purple looks chic when paired with black, but when purple is put together with white, the pow factor stands out. Purple necklaces against white blouses or tops packs a powerful, modern punch!


Purple Fun Fact: The word purple comes from the Old English word purpul, which derives from the Latin word purpura, in turn from the Greek word porphura (you may need to read that a few times for the meaning to set in)! The first recorded use of the word purple in the English language was in the year 975 A.D.

The color purple is inspiring and brings out your imagination. Perhaps this blog post will inspire you to run out and buy some hot, haute couture purple high heels! What closet doesn’t scream for a pair of such exquisite footwear? What closet doesn’t yearn for such a sensuous, super shoe? Yahoo!


Purple is, well, perfect!

Violet, a form of purple, is the color of purpose. Violet is associated with the Crown chakra (this links the individual and the universe)!

With purple being a blend of red and blue, which is a mix of a warm and a cool color, could you look any hotter and any cooler than when you are parading your beautiful self in the marvelous shade that is purple?



Purple is the epitome of class! Never dull or boring or crass!


When draped in purple you will have won, whether you are walking in cool, calm steps or you are frantically on the run!

Purple highlights any daily pace!

Dress in purple when you want to:

  1. Use your imagination to the fullest.
  2. Re-balance your life.
  3. Remove obstacles.
  4. Calm overactivity or energize yourself from depression.

Or dress in purple just because you want to look truly stunning!

Glamour girl grit! I highly recommend it!
