Though I'd professed my love for all things pink and girly, I never really liked purple until recently. About four years ago, my husband bought me the first purple garment I have ever had. When I wore it to work, I got a ton of compliments, but I didn't think it looked that grand on me. Later on, I got this dress, the color of which is closer to eggplant than purple, in my opinion.
And I sooo love eggplants.

I love eggplants in curry. I love them in an omelet. I love them baked in breadcrumbs and parmesan. I love them as a dip. I love the deep, rich purple color of aubergines as well. It's girly, but in a regal and classy way. 

As you probably have noticed, I made some pretty drastic changes to my blog layout. Viewing many of my older posts is going to be messy, but that's something I can live with for now. I find that whenever my overall mood or outlook changes, I have to make sure everything around me matches. Right now, I suppose, I'm in a gothic/Edgar Allan Poe/ wrought iron fence mood, whatever that may mean.

Do you like aubergines? as much as I do?
Do you change your layout to fit your mood?

  2. First of all, HOW did you put those side tabs on your blog???? I have been DYING to do the same for the longest time now.

    Secondly, your outfit is totally adorable. I want to steal it from you.

    Third, I love you.

    The end.

  13. The berry colour is so gorgeous on you! And such a cute handbag :)

    My fiance and I bought a house a few months ago and it has an amazing vege garden, with 5 eggplant bushes - crazy! Would of been awesome if we liked eggplant...but don't. So instead have given the plants to friends and put in other veges :)

  14. You look good in purple!! I've started to like purple in clothing way more now. I've always been into purple eye shadows and liners but not clothing. Its fun!

  34. Yip! Definitely an eggplant/aubergine fan. I learnt how to make this kickass aubergine and chicken curry in Laos and it's one of my favourite meals. Other things I love? Your thrifted white bag! It looks like vintage alligator.

  35. The new layout looks great, Laura! And purples definitely work on you! So very pretty.

    Eggplant on pizza is really good. Have you ever had that? There's a restaurant around here that puts it on their veggie pizza. Mmm mm!

  36. eggplant is a fantastic colour on you. I like the blouse over top of the dress. I like this new layout, I find it charming while still simple and clean. I've played around with my layout a lot, it may like it now but I can be fickle with these things.
