Things I Love Thursday: PURPLE!

Yes, yes, I know it's Wednesday. I've just got a busy few days coming up, so I thought I'd get this up now while I can.

So, I keep hearing that the new fall color is red. Now I love me some red, so that would be cool with me. But then why is it that there is nothing but purple out there? If you had asked me last month what I thought about purple, I'd be all "meh, it's cool and all, but nothing flashy."

Color me excited when I went searching at Nordstrom's for a dress to wear to a wedding and came up with this purple-y goodness:

And this awesome bag, which I didn't buy with any intention of matching the dress and I'm still not sure I'd carry the two together, but how awesome is it?? It's the perfect size and weight. And it was a Nine West outlet purchase for $40, so the perfect price, too! My conscience won't allow me to buy purses more than $50 because I become fickle after a season and they're relegated to my closet.

What's your favorite fall purchase? And don't forget to check out last week's post for my Shutterfly give-away!

What a pretty frock! <3

Sometimes I think you can pair purple and red together? I think it just depends on how bold you're feeling :)

That dress is amazing! Wishing I could fit into something like that right now. I'm drawn to purple in the fall, too...don't' know what it is!

That dress is adorable! I'm usually not much for purple, but I would totally rock that. I need some new fall boots....

I love these! Isn't purple fun? :)

Thanks for the dishwasher comment, but, sadly I have made that mistake too (even worse, it wasn't even my apartment. I thought I'd be sweet and HELP a friend by surprising them with clean dishes! Oops!)

I haven't really shopped in a while so when I do my fall shopping I'm going to go buzzerk
