I have been converted. I love deep purple (the colour, not the band)
Posted on June 24 2014
My first week at Miik, Bonnie, our fantastic office manager, helped me to choose some new clothes. I only gave her one condition: I don't wear orange or purple. Well, I would still take some serious convincing to wear orange, but I have been converted by the purple in our new fall line. Our new deep purple is g o r g e o u s -- and that means a lot coming from a life-long purple-phobic like me!
Just to prove my new-found love for deep purple to you, here's a shot of me in my newest Miik piece this morning (obviously ignore the racks of clothes around me, the iphone in my hand and the fact that I am not a professional model):
As it turns out, deep purple makes me feel fantastic! Happy, vibrant, energized. This colour, in combination with our super soft, rayon from bamboo fabric is a dream. You need some deep purple in your life too. Image a drab winter morning; you wake up in the dark, shower in the dark and get ready to head out into the grey...a deep purple piece is going to cheer you right up. A purple Lea or Lilith tank under a suit? Perfect! Or what about a purple cardi with jeans? Our deep purple Sandy tunic looks amazing over black leggings or skinny jeans. Maybe you already love purple, or maybe you're like me and need a little convincing, but I think we could all use a little more deep purple in our lives! (Bonnie, you were right)
