Little Purple Valentine

Check out this flirty little number (is she talking about the dress or herself? Haha!) and then brace yourselves, because it's another adorable secondhand find from my closet.  That's right! Thrifting sure is easy when you live in an area where everybody has good taste.  Pinks and reds get their due attention on February 14, and purple kind of gets ignored, even though I'd say it is no less a romantic hue than the other two colors.

The first time I wore this dress, I went to Dita von Teese's book signing. It was a fast and furious trip to Los Angeles, and I'm pretty sure I ended up getting dressed in the back seat of the rental car.  This time around, I was able to pull together a sightly more polished look.

Typically, I think of the ponytail as an exercise hairstyle. But gosh! Curl it and you've got one cute party style going on. It certainly is a hairstyle that has endured the test of time, and perhaps it's time for me to take it a bit more seriously.

Have a wonderful week, everyone! And consider purple for Valentine's Day!
