Mad about dusty purples: Marc Jacobs + Mad Baker

Marc Jacobs purple
purple macarons

Purple has never been my favorite color. It makes me think of Elvis on velvet. However, I’m loving Marc Jacobs’s lilac purple and Mad Baker‘s lavandar. They’re both dusty and lovely.

Here’s a search for “purple” on shopbop. I love sites that let you search by color. Remember this post with some pictures from the Dior/Galliano show? I love that purple too.

Here’s Joy’s post on Oh Joy about a lovely purple print by Yumiyumi on etsy.

Here’s the Spring Pantone color report via Anmutig blog.

    I have been crazy for purple lately too. Maybe it was the pruple shoes? Must be in the water? Samantha- do me a favor if you get a second, I have been revamping the blog for about a week, check it out if you get a moment. Want to see if it looks ok! (thanks)

    oh I know…I can almost smell lilacs when I look at Marc Jacobs’s dress in the first pic. I just adore macarons.
