Something Purple: DAY 27 - Purple Scattered Wing Skirt

Hey FashionFolk! So Day 27 is here, we are almost out of days for this 29 Day Challenge of Something Purple. Today I have for you this skirt that I absolutely adore. She`s from Anthropologie and goes by the name Scattered Wing Skirt. I love the color, this rich, royal, deep purple is my absolute favorite of all the purples out there.

Back in the day when only royalty wore the color purple and indigos as well, it would take hundreds of thousands of snails to create these colors and not very much color came out of this. Poor snails, but what a beautiful color they got from those snails. So that just makes me appreciate this shade of purple so much more becaus the darker the purple, the more snails were sacraficed.

But anyway, enough of the history lesson, I love the lines of this skirt. I love the assymetrical waistband and the topstitching detail. And of course I love the flounce in the front, which would also look very cute if you wore the skirt backwards and created a hi-lo hemline. So cute. It also comes in orange.... You want one? it`s gonna cost you $128. Yup.

So what do youthink of this scattered bird?
Did you know that so many snails were sacraficed to create these deep hues?
