{ Eggplant & Red }

Purple is my favorite color:  It has been my obsession since Jr High School.  I once read a book by popular Taiwanese writer Qing Yao, and the way she described purple on the main character and what it meant in life, mood and personalty just touched my heart.  I have been obsessed with the color ever since.  Qing Yao must have written over 100 romance books, and I think I read all of them--another obsession from Jr High School days. 

Just giving you an idea of my obsession with purple back in my college days, almost all of my room decor was purple, my pens were purple, and 50% of my closet was purple.  I dreamt of a purple room whenever I owned a home.  I do own a home now, but there is no purple room, as I no longer obsess over it, but it is still one of my favorite colors.

Today, I combined my 2 favorite winter colors, eggplant and red, into this outfit.  I really felt good wearing it, even though I didn't get great review from friends.  Still, I love the combo!
