Today I am dressing in purple as a very small tribute to Prince. In the 80’s I loved to sing and dance to his music. I was working in an accounting office with another girl my age, and we thought Prince was wonderful. Party like it’s 1999 was one of our favorite songs, followed by Little Red Corvette and Delirious. When the movie Purple Rain came out, we of course had to attend. I don’t really remember a lot about the movie, I think I just went to listen to the music. Purple Rain soon became a favorite, along with When Doves Cry.I wore this outfit to work and told my son why I had it on. He was a little puzzled, especially when I mentioned going to see the movie, Purple Rain. He had no idea that there was a movie. When I started singing When Doves Cry, he looked at me like I had lost my mind. We brought up the song on YouTube, but after a few seconds I could see he was not impressed. I guess you just had to be a child of the 80’s. He was born in 1989, a little too late for the Prince era.
I have on a violet tank top from Cato. It has two layers on the front, one shorter than the other. I love this color, but I am at a loss for what you would call it. Magenta, rose violet, or pinky-purplely. Whatever, I’ll just call is lovely.
I bought this cardigan years ago. I don’t wear a lot of purple, so it has hardly ever been worn. I bought this at one of the many outlet stores we have in town, it is by Chloe Dao.
I am wearing a pair of white jeans, a summer staple, with the outfit. I can’t believe that up until a couple of years ago, I would never wear white pants. That is just plain nutty😳 I bought this pair on the clearance rack last fall from Versona.
White Jeans: Plus | Kut from the Kloth | PetiteMy turquoise patent leather purse is by Dooney & Bourke. It is a beautiful color for spring and summer. I will get a lot of wear from this purse for years to come.
Purse: Similar | Faux LeatherThese poor shoes are really old, really dirty, and still really a favorite. I bought them years ago at Maurice’s. They were a color I thought I would only wear once or twice, but boy was I wrong. I wear them with almost everything.
Shoes: Aerosoles | Bandolino | JC PennyFor jewelry I am wearing some Chloe & Isabel items, with the exception of my bangle bracelet that I bought at a vintage fashion show years ago. Also, notice the cigar band silver ring I am wearing. That is a gift from Bertha, sort of. It was too big for her and just fit me, although she is still not happy about that. Haha
