More product reviews are coming. Promise! But for now, look! I found some purple that suits me! I rarely buy anything in purple. I don't really like it, and a lot of shades don't look right on me, but I really liked the style of this dress, and it turned out to be a nice shade on me. Plus, it was a steal at Goodwill :)

Are there any colors you don't like? I've always thought it was quite funny that I hated purple, even though I LOVED colors in general. I have been known to swoon over almost every other color, but it's a rare thing with purple.

Speaking of purple, I'm roasting some beets, which I should probably go check on :)

Lovely outfit! The dress is really great, and I love the tights!
it's really funny - purple is the love of my life! I don't like wearing orange, although I like looking at it in the countryside, or interiors :)

I'm cautious about purple myself, but this combo looks wonderful. I love beets too...but rarely roast them myself because I stain everything pink.

i had beets for dinner tonight! So yummy - purple is actually my favourite colour - but for some reason i hardly ever buy/wear it either - i don't know why!

Ohh you look so gorgeous in this shade of purple! Love the tights too :D
I tend to stay away from pink, and most pastel colours, although I've been trying to ease them in lately! Orange is another big one, but I'm slowly getting more of that too!

I've suddenly become totally addicted to pink! Not sure why. I'm the same with pastels, but only because they're not as slimming as dark colors, and I get washed out because of my coloring. I like orange, but not as clothing!
