it’s my favorite color.
since i was a child, i was always drawn to purples. perhaps it was because my parents always dressed me up in this regal color. or because i really didn’t want to wear pink. though i love colors and tend to ebb and flow in my ‘favorites’ which can be viewed as indecisiveness, this purple color always tends to come back to me. it’s kinda like love at first sight. only i was 2 months old.
i will note that i’m incredibly picky about my purples. i dislike any light colored, lavender purples and tend to opt for the 80s rock purple blended with magenta hues or the deep purples that is reminiscent of royalty. basically anything that screams color and goes well with the outfit is a true winner. and trust me, there are no pastels in my closet.
since the 80s have been back in trends for the last several seasons, i’m more addicted to this beautiful, bright orchid hue. in fact, if you remember that not long ago i painted my end tables this color when we redecorated. i’m also a bit embarrassed to admit that i have added a few needed things to the collection over the years.
farewell large personalized and customized timbuk2 bag from 2007. hello small messenger bag that doesn’t kill my neck, back or shoulders. notice, i’m still a timbuk2 lover. they make the best bags.
and now that i’ve given you quite a bit of reason to laugh at me when i walk into the office or your house decked in purple, i think i’lll end it here.
