the colour purple

This is going to sound like I'm totally insane, but you'd never believe where I got my inspiration for this blog from...Wait for it...a Holden ute! Now before you start thinking I must be some kind of mad fashion-loving-come-motorhead, the colour of the ute was the gorgeous deep, purple colour imaginable.

So the story continues down the track, with this colour embedded in my memory. One night, I was surfing the Internet in my down time, as I do. It's my way of chilling out after a very hectic day of teaching primary-aged children. I checked out Chanel's Ready to Wear collections and their runway videos, my favourite being AW '12/13. Low and behold, what did I see? Amethyst crysals! What colour were they? The colour purple.







Anyway, I've posted the video link for you below so you can experience some of Karl Lagerfeld's creative magic for yourself. That man is a pure genius!




What's the most bizarre place you've found your inspiration?

Enjoy your weekend my lovely readers!
Yours in style,

Suzi x
