Purple Rain.

I don't normally wear a lot of purple. I think I mentally blocked the colour out of my life after insisting on having a purple room, purple curtains, purple duvet set, a purple car (yes it actually happened) when I was younger. However, The Cherry Closet have sent me this gorgeous purple crossover blouse quite ironically named 'Amethyst at last' as it has reaffirmed my love in the colour. The deep colour suits my pale skin tone perfectly and the cut is super flattering. It also has killer shoulder pads which is always a bonus in my opinion.



The other day, purely out of intrigue, I perused Victoria Beckham's SS11 collection. I've heard a lot about it. With her collections showing in New York Fashion Week, rumours of her also showing at LFW and other celebs now wearing her designs on the red carpet I just had to take a look. I was actually also really pleasantly surprised. Especially when I saw these stunning purple numbers.

The draping on the top photo is just beautiful and I love the knot detailing. The cone shape on the second photo, I think, is just wonderful. It will be flattering for any shape and its simplicity is what makes it for me. The word understated springs to mind. I'm actually really chuffed for VB. It seems she has really proven herself as a credible designer. No more will she be remembered for being the Spice girl who married a footballer and popped out a loud of sprogs. Oh no, the girl came good.
