Fine Feathers Make Fine Birds

I have always chosen the colors in my wardrobe based on what colors I like to look at rather than which ones I think look good on me. For starters, I'm not sure what colors I'm supposed to wear and then I also would just prefer to surround myself with things I find aesthetically pleasing--even if those things don't "suit" me. Purple used to be one of my least favorite colors, but with amethyst being my birthstone and the way it interacts with red hair, it's creeping into my wardrobe. This pretty printed dress might have been a tipping point; the feather print made me disregard the colors involved and once I had it on, it was instant infatuation. It's a fantastic dress for summer, but it will probably also look nice with layers this fall and yes--I think it looks nice with my hair. All that rambling to say: purple, not so bad and maybe soon to become a staple in my wardrobe.
