Passionate about purple

I've had no time to whip up something bloggy brilliant today.  Nevermind, I will write a shallow post about my favourite colour de jour.  Can you guess?  PURPLE! 

I don't know what it is, but my totally unfashion-conscious eye has been drawn to this hue like ....  I can't seem to get enough.  Today I picked up a bag at MEC, partly because I needed it but mostly because it was cute, full of pockets and a lovely shade of purple.  (Well they call it Eggplant, but I beg to differ.)

There must be some deeper meaning to my sway to the grapish tone.  Hmmm, let's see, according to the folks at Sensational Color;

Meaning, symbolism and psychology of color: All About the Color purplePurple embodies the balance of red's stimulation and blue's calm. This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone is clearly defined, at which point the purple takes on the characteristics of its undertone. With a sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite color of adolescent girls.
Who knew?  I thought I was regressing to my adolescence again yet feeling regal! 

Whatever!  It is making choosing clothing totally easier - just pick a purple shirt and I'm set.  I'll be dawning my purple boots with pride this winter, cleaning up with my purple vacuum and whipping up a purple smoothie on the side.  I know you may be jealous, but that's green and there is no room for that in my happy purple kingdom with me and my adolescent dude Prince.


  1. Purple is a fine colour! 'Specially on toenails.

  2. I struggled today too - and finally settled on a mostly written (but not really well thought out) post I had on file. THe things we do for NaBlo! This is great though. I had a uni prof who loved purple - it always reminds me of him and his poetry club.

  3. Purple is my 6yo son's favourite colour. I dare you to try to find purple clothing for a 6yo boy. It is nearly impossible. Purple for men - easy to find. Purple for boys - NO. But, it is certainly a fine colour!

  4. My 10yo son loves purple too! I am going to the Prince concert on Dec 3 and I can't wait!

  5. There you go - creative and eccentric types - you and Eve! :) Also, Prince is still giving concerts? And alive?
