Hello All! The second colour I'm featuring is Fashion Forward a dusky,deep purple (aubergine if you want to be fancy!). I went into the store,intent on buying Project Runway and Purple Heart, and ended up with this one as well.And the rest of the collection. Anyway,it's a cool,vampy purple that is right up my alley.

I don't know about the rest of you,but I have never been "fashion forward".Sure,I've been watching Fashion Television since I was 9,and by the time I was 15 I could identify the designer simply by looking at the clothes,but for me fashion was more of a spectator sport that I didn't necessarily feel the need to participate in.I'm thankful that I was never one to follow trends because I have a wardrobe full of clothes I've had for years that I can still wear without feeling like a fool.Except for the bell-bottomed jeans I've had since the 70's revival of 95'.Those were some good times.
The most valuable thing I've learned from my fashion fixation was to find what works best for me,and stick with that.I prefer wearing things that never go out of style,mostly because I find shopping for anything other than books,make up and art supplies torturous. My friends hate shopping with me because I'm always the one saying "Are you done yet? We've been here for hours!" I like having new clothes,but not enough to spend hours in a mall. Yuck.
So what about you guys? Are you fashion mavens? comfortable chic? or too cool to buy into that crap?
Have an awesome day!
