Purple Vibes~

Hey guys!! 

Who else here loves purple!? It’s my favorite color right now and I am here with a perfect, purple, OOTD. 

I honestly can’t get enough of this outfit. It is the perfect look for a night out on the town with my girls. 

The dress is from Clothes Mentor, the tights are from Aeropostale, the sparkly choker is from a little costume jewelry store near my house, the adorable clock handbag is from Betsey Johnson, and the shoes are also from Clothes Mentor.

Let me know what you guys think of this OOTD! I love hearing your thoughts. 

Also if you haven’t, you can check out my latest video here>>>> I’m Going On an Adventure

Don’t forget to follow me on all my social media to the right, under the “Come Stalk Me” section 😉

XOXO,

  1. Morning Alex!

    I am loving that purple on you and those shoes are to fall out and faint for! I especially love how the shoes were photographed from the top looking down as you were seated with your legs crossed. And the accessories you styled the look with are perfect, simply darling!

    Not only is the outfit lush, but your various moods in the photos are exquisite! Hmmmm. I’m skipping over to visit the link to see how you do what you do with the adventure. Yaaaaas!

    All I can say is, Carry on!

  2. It looks very beautiful on you. Or you look beautiful in it. Either way, purple definitely seems to be your color. I believe that of all the colors, purple comes closest to kissing the heavenly realms 😉

  3. When I see a woman wearing vivid purple it tells me she is adventurous and enjoys being noticed while avoiding the suggestive connotations that an equally vivid scarlet might suggest.

    Purple has a fascinating history. It was originally developed by the Phoenicians around Tyre in what is now Lebanon. The Phoenicians’ “Tyrian purple” came from a species of sea snail now known as Bolinus brandaris, and it was so exceedingly rare that it became worth its weight in gold. To harvest it, dye-makers had to crack open the snail’s shell, extract a purple-producing mucus and expose it to sunlight for a precise amount of time. It took as many as 250,000 mollusks to yield just one ounce (!!) of usable dye, but the result was a vibrant and long-lasting shade of purple.
    Since only wealthy rulers could afford to buy and wear the color , it became associated with the imperial classes of Rome, Egypt, and Persia. Purple also came to represent spirituality and holiness because the ancient emperors, kings and queens that wore the color were often thought of as gods or descendents of the gods.

    Sometimes, however, the dye was too expensive even for royalty. Third-century Roman emperor Aurelian famously wouldn’t allow his wife to buy a shawl made from Tyrian purple silk because it literally cost its weight in gold. Talk about sticker shock.

    Purple’s exclusivity carried over to the Elizabethan era (1558 to 1603), during which time everyone in England had to abide by Sumptuary Laws, which strictly regulated what colors, fabrics and clothes could and couldn’t be worn by different classes within English society. Queen Elizabeth I’s Sumptuary Laws forbid anyone but close relatives of the royal family to wear purple.
