For someone who lists purple as one of my absolute favorite colors, I have woefully little of it in my vintage wardrobe. I made the mistake a few Sundays ago of mentioning to my choir mates that I often dress in liturgically appropriate colors, so of course I had to find something purple to wear for the first Sunday in Lent. Easier said than done!
I ended up temporarily “trimming” the new hat I wore a few weeks ago with a handful of clip-on flowers, and wore a purple shirt to match. I was asked, half in jest, if my hat was “Dior or a museum piece” so I suppose it was something of a success! The hat still desperately needs a new veil, but it’s quickly becoming a new favorite of mine.
I also really need to finish altering the skirt that goes with this jacket, because I managed to accidentally shrink my one black skirt at the beginning of winter (oops) and it only barely fits and is quite a bit shorter than it once was. Don’t run wool skirts through the dryer!
