Hello: It's Spring

Hello dears! Here's an old jersey dress that I made during my art university days. It's also a part of my crafty purple dyeing project that I discussed with you previously. I am always filled with excitement during seasonal transitions.
Fashion Tales Dyed DIY dress
With the changes in climate and style of dressing it allows me to grab inspiration in a mere thought of a considerably warmer temperature. Though the sunshine and meteorologists tend to fool us every so often I always hope for the best ... for fashion's sake!

It's no secret that I adore all colours, and violet hues have certainly been on my wardrobe radar lately, in addition to mint, orange, and yellow.
People often ask me, "what's your favourite colour?" I used to say yellow and blue, then grey had its moments. But, throughout the years my hue favour has evolved into an assorted fashion potion. Depending on the day, my mood, or local climate it just varies.

I think I've simply taken them all; tailoring the colours to my [custom] style mixture, which may sometimes resemble a Mauve Martini Monday, a Teal Tony Tuesday, or even a Saturated Savvy Sunday  Beautiful, artfully chaotic, sophisticated, modern, dated, yet easily digested. And just like that ... a gulp of colour brings a smile to my face. Today, it's purple!

Tell me, do you have just one favourite colour? Even if it's a colour that someone says is not the best on you ... do you still wear it? You already know my answer to this one, so I'd love to here yours.

  31. Pretty friend! And I'm actually laughing because I told you I think on your first purple dying situation that it is majorly addictive and seeing your other purple situation I think you found it the same way :P.
