Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge: Purple

This week's wardrobe challenge was a simple colour challenge - wear purple - I don't have a lot of purple things but I was pretty happy with the outfit I pulled together.
This little squid brooch was made by my friend Vany - I think its pretty much the cutest thing in the world. At the very least, its the cutest squid in the world!
When searching amongst my many accessories I found these purple beads - I actually do remember picking them up at a clothes swap party, but I haven't worn them often.
Finally a post that shows the amazing fabric of this dress (even if it is a little crinkled) - I actually received this dress in a craft swap.Also, its the depth of winter here so there are loads of days at the moment where two pairs of tights are required.
So glad its Friday tomorrow - it feels like its been a very long week! It's my birthday this Sunday and I have been lucky enough to have already received not one but two packages in the mail. Although, it's hard to resist opening them until Sunday.

OUTFIT DEETS:

Shoes - Op Shopped, Hospice Shop, Kilbirnie
Lace Tights - Equipt
Purple Tights - Shanton
Dress - From a craft swap
Belt - From another dress
Cardi - Glassons
Beads - Clothes Swap
Brooch - Made by my incredibly talented friend Vany
