Purple Reign, Purple Reign
Isn't purple just a royal color?!! Purple looks good on any skin tone too! I would wear this outfit to one of my more conservative holiday parties... of course I was fooling around with the hat and cigar and was not smoking! But, the hat does lend a little playfulness to the outfit. I kept it monochrome with varying shades of rich purple and used seasonal fabrics such as satin and velvet to feel like the holidays, without my usual sparkle ha ha ha. I could see anyone wearing this to a corporate party, dinner with parents/in laws, cocktail event....you get the picture... not a lot of skin or flashiness going on. I will save that for NYE! Dress is vintage Copperknob, shoes are (gorgeous with the silver piping - did you see?!) from twentyone, YSL cosmetic bag used as a purse and a vintage JCPenney blazer (I have seriously owned this thing for years).
