All Greek to Me

I couldn't figure out why on earth I go with Greek inspired shoes and accessories each time I wear this dress. I haven't worn it in a long time, and as it's being altered I tried it on and pinned it and decided to wear it pinned....oh I need to learn to be patient. Anyway, I finally figured it out! My mythology class I took in high school showed most women wearing dresses this same cut, only with long skirts, and mostly in white. And truly Grecian gals piled on the accessories like they would be destroyed by the Gods at anytime- thus I did too. With all images being white or a light blue, why oh why would a purple version just scream Greek to me? I finally figured it out.

Oh that subconscious mind! Oh Disney- chaining a horrific myth into something cute. My teacher would roll over and die if she knew this character created inspiration for me, even subconsciously!

  1. I love the color of your dress! I am warming up to purple and other bright colors!

  2. That color is just divine and looks great on you! And that necklace is flippin' awesome! I think Hercules was one of the last Disney movies that I really liked; I'm way old school about it and can't deal with all the computer-generated graphics in the new ones.

  3. Love this dress and that necklace is fabulous!!!
