Favorite FALL Color -- Purple!

My favorite color of all time is PURPLE (yay!!). To me, its just a very mystical and provocative color… I love it, I love it, I love it.

Needless to say, I was excited for the Fall to arrive since purple seems to be an autumn color and fashion blogs and magazines highlight it as a good shade to wear this time of year.
So I decided to round up my favorite purple colored items of the season, including lipstick shades, clothing and accessories. But before I continue, there’s a funky little website that claims to provide “Color Psychology”. It’s supposed to be able to tell you about your personality based on your favorite color. 

Link here:

According to the website, “purple relates to the imagination and spirituality. It stimulates the imagination and inspires high ideals. It is an introspective color, allowing us to get in touch with our deeper thoughts."
Further, the website states that the color purple is "specifically associated with royalty and the nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance.
Purple has power. It has a richness and quality to it that demands respect. Purple is ambitious and self-assured, the leader.”
I needn't read further. I’m Sold.
So with that stated, here are my purple articles of choice:

Purple lipstick & nail polish:

Purple jewels

A purple-shaded plaid button-up shirt for my handsome little Benny

And my personal favorite – a Vera Wang purple two-tone shirt with a jeweled collar.

I think I’ll call it a night on this chilly October evening and sit back and enjoy a glass of purple grape wine and watch Oprah Winfrey in “The Color Purple”…Ok, maybe that’s too much and who has time to watch movies these days!?… but I’m sure you get the point.
