French Pressed Purple

On cool summer evenings, there is nothing like a rich cup of French Press coffee to pick me up for a late night of writing and racing to meet deadlines or stay on top of surprise inspiration. Why not make it a purple French Press for an even more perfect moment?Pictured:

Proud Purple Peacock

This one isn't fair. Purple and Peacocks! How am I supposed to resist that? I have no use for this pillow, and I still want it. Sigh. Pictured:

You Say Boysenberry; I Say Purple

While baking last weekend for my brother's birthday, my father's birthday and a Fourth of July party, I decided living without a stand mixer may not be possible much longer. (Of course, I'll have to stop living with limited counter space before I let a stand mixer move in.) KitchenAid has a boysenberry stand mixer. I'd say that purple enough for me.

Damsel In This Dress Purple Corset

I'm a huge fan of Damsel In This Dress on Etsy. (I've featured them a few times on Fashion Me Fabulous). I swear I'm going to buy one of these fabulous corsets someday. If I'm being honest with myself I'll probably get one that's some sort of purple like this Purple Chenille ready-to-ship corset ($69.99). Previous Purple Items That Have Been Sold:

Purple Dreams

My Anthropologie catalog came last week. Nothing can make me so discontent with my possessions as that catalog. Now I not only need this stunning purple bedding, I also need a chalkboard wall as a backdrop.
Rosette Bedding $48 - $268

Purple Sony "Bloggie" Digital Camcorder

Not only is this little digital camcorder from Sony rather cute, but it is also purple. The name, "Bloggie,"  appeals to my blogging self. It costs $121.56 from Amazon and takes HD video and 5 megapixel still shots.

Korto Momolu for Dillard's Purple Satchel

Korto Momolu remains one of my all-time favorite Project Runway contestants. I was shocked when she didn't win her season (seat belt coat!) and further shocked when she didn't win the all-stars reunion competition. I'm very happy to see her gaining post-Project Runway success with projects like her line for Dillards.
 I'm also very happy to see she's created a perfect purple purse. The Korto Momolu North-South Satchel comes in purple and creme (but you should buy the purple) for $97.30 (reduced from $139).

Don't You Step On My Purple Suede Shoes

These purple suede pumps are an off season steal for anyone who happens to wear a size 6 or a 7.5. They only cost $27.98 from the original $69.95.

Vintage Lilac Floral Dress

If this Vintage Lilac Floral Dress happened to be my size, I might be $35 poorer right now. I love the randomly placed flowers on the soft lilac background. The drawstring waist makes for what looks to be a very comfortable summer frock. It helps that I like the name of the shop too--Purple Deer Vintage.

Purple Monster Attack!

Isn't he cute terrifying?! Zumba the Monster is 16 inches wide and made of fleece, felt and polyfil. He looks rather cuddly foreboding and costs $40 from Mariska on Etsy.

Smoked Violet Shoe Steal

My fellow blogger at Fashion Me Fabulous, Jael Paris, spotted these Naturalizer Mary Janes at the super steal price of $29.99 from $79, which forced me to purchase them. (I joined their eClub for an extra $10 off!)They aren't quite purple. They're more of a grey/periwinkle, but pick up any purple hue you pair with them. They're quite comfy too!

Other steal-able styles in this color:
Woven Walking Sandal $19.99 from $69
Slingback Dress Sandals $39.50 from $79
