Purple Dress

by - February 17, 2019

I think everyone has a color they tend to avoid wearing. For me, it's always been purple. I don't really know why, but I have a vague memory of someone telling me a long time ago that purple made me look like I was sick. So for most of my life, I've side-stepped all shades of this royal color. Over the past few years I've been allowing purple to trickle into my closet in small doses -- as in, I only have one sweater and two shirts. But this beauty from Lulu's spoke to me, and I had to have it.

On Me: Dress | Boots | Jacket (unavailable)
On Alexis: Shirt | Pants
I thought it was a nice alternative to pink or red for Valentine's Day and is a good option for Easter, although I think lighter shoes and a cardigan would be more seasonally appropriate. Darker boots and a dark denim jacket help make a spring dress winter-appropriate.

A note about the dress - it's faux wrap, fully lined, with adjustable shoulder straps. The waist is pretty fitted and has no give so if you're between sizes consider sizing up. I'm usually a size 6/8 and wearing this in medium.
