All of My Purple Life

I’ve been shopping for a new coat.  So, the day after Thanksgiving, I went hunting for one.  I first spotted a beautiful, green, wrap coat in Marshalls, but the only size available was too large for me.  So,  I launched a serious search to find that coat in my size.  In St. Louis, there are 9 Marshalls stores within 25 miles of my home, and one of them was going to have my coat.

Glimpse of green wrap coat in dressing room.

The Marshalls Goddesses smiled on me because the next day, I found the coat in my size and in the perfect shade of purple.  Between the color and the beautifully draped cascade collar, it was a winner.

Purple Rain

While in the checkout line at Marshalls, the woman behind me asked if purple was my favorite color.  I was curious as to why she asked me that.  She then pointed out all of the purple things I was either wearing, holding, or carrying.  It was a lot, y’all.  I guess purple is a favorite color of mine?

That encounter made me take a closer look at a few of my recent purchases, and apparently, it has been raining purple in my closet.

Lots of purple nail polish.

Even my phone case is purple!

Okay.  I guess it’s safe to say that I love purple.  What color(s) do you find yourself drawn to?

    @Sing: Thanks. That green one had me so excited in the store!

    @Jane: Right! I haven't seen that color in any other stores in my size. I've seen the black and purple in a couple places.

    @AngelatheCreativeDiva: Hey fellow purple-lover! Yes, that green coat had spinning with excitement. Too bad I couldn't find it in my size.

    @Andi: That draped neckline is so attractive!! I loved it in both colors. I'm almost gave in and got the black one, which I spotted first in my size in a TJ. But, I held out, and luckily found the purple.

    @Shoe Bell(i)e: Thanks! Nice details, right?

    @NerdGirl: Oooh…orange is fabulous too! Definitely another color I love.

    @Anonymous: Right!!! When I was in KY, there were only 2 Marshalls in Lexington, so I love being in St. Louis now. I didn't even tell you how many TJ Maxxes we have…
