Purple & Ombre – Two more trends that go well together

If you flip though any fashion magazine these days they will tell you Purple is the IT color for Fall 08. I’m on board with that. I love a deep jewel tone to balance out the sometimes dreary weather and just as dreary colored clothes that appear in Fall.

Imagine my surprise as I was surfing Targaayy (Target for you regualr folks…LOL) when I came upon some cool (and cheap) Purple items. Many of them included two other trends you know I love patent and Ombre. So I figured I would share them with you because I love to help people look stylish and if it can be done cheaply all the better ;).

Purple Satin all over the place….Oh My!

In reading blogs this week I noticed a trend towards purple, satin and lady like dresses. Look at Scarlett Johansson at the 58th Berlinale Film Festival:

Stunning I thought.

Then I came upon this in In Style’s The Look section:

Talk about Hollywood royalty! Regal purple satin is the latest fabric to adorn red-carpet princesses. “I love feeling womanly,” Anne Hathaway told In Style. In her formfitting Dolce & Gabbana bustier dress (also donned by Fergie), Hathaway lived up to her promise. Those who want to follow her lead must think fit—a too-small satin dress will accentuate every lump and bump. “[Hathaway] still likes being Cinderella for the night,” stylist Rachel Zoe has said. Well, if the glass slipper fits….

Then I realized why I loved these dresses all along. I had bought a similar dress and have it on sale in my eBay store. It isn’t my size otherwise I would be wearing it and none of you would have a chance to own it…..But alas I’ve gained more than my fair share of winter padding ;). So it is available for any of you would like to get on the Purple Lady-like bandwagon. Here is the dress:
