Trend Talk: Purple Haze

Hey!So I've been seeing the color purple pop up on on many red carpets in the celeb circuit. Eye catching yet sophisticated, it flatters most skin tones and also complements some of spring's bright accessories:

Venus Williams wears a cap sleeve shift with a metallic bag to ESPN the magazine's 10th anniversary celebration...
Kelly Rowland slips on a halter neck cocktail with a gathered skirt for a Prada Cocktail Party...
Angie Martinez goes for a wrap dress for the red carpet of Hot 97's Full Frontal Fashion Show...
And next top model Jaslene opts for separates in a body clinging tube top for BET's Rip the Runway...
This trend even crossed the pond to Paris...
...where Rihanna made pretty purple pop against a blue jacket and an electric yellow purse.
Want Rihanna's look? Go with the following:
Left to Right: French Connection Jack Jersey Jacket, $148, www.bloomingdales.com; Alexander Wang Tank Dress, $253, www.standardstyle.com; Nordstrom Deco Crinkle Patent Tote, $198, www.nordstrom.com.
The best of the rest:
Bottom Row: Full Swing Dress, $98, www.bebe.com; Traffic People Satin Trim Silk Chiffon Dress, $130, www.asos.com.
Smootches!

I love purple but I think that WE are most flattering in PLUM. Still in the purple family I think.

I LOVE fashion but I can't afford it. Just when I save up enough for a LV bag with the rainbow signature, the fashion changes. I started shopping for really good knock offs that are just as nice, or close. I went through 5 purses...ouch. I was at a street fair in Seattle and bought 3 purses from www.PookiesPurses.com. I still have them a year later. The leather is real and they are super cute. I decided to go with 1 Brighton (black and white), one Chanel (black) and a Dooney with bumble bees for spring. I don't know if they are still around but I really recommend them.
