Welcome to my
Passion for Purple Page!

Purple has been my favorite color for many years. If I have a choice of color for anything, I choose purple. My favorite clothes are purple, my bedroom is purple, and so on!

Purple Profile

You are a purple person if:

You are imaginative, sensitive,
artistic and sophisticated.

You have noble ideals and a keen
appreciation of the cultural.

You are alert, demanding, foresighted,
confident, resourceful,spontaneous
and highly independent

You take delight in the beautiful,
the gracious, the sensitive, but
maintain an attitude of
critical appraisal.

In love you seek to attain a magical
quality and refuse to settle
for anything less.

You refuse to be "swept-off your
feet" unless genuineness and
integrity can be absolutely
ascertained.

You are active in the support of
things you believe in, and are
concerned with the pursuit of
truth and other human values.

You take chances and believe
that you must do so to make
the most of what life has to offer.

Purple is an exclusive color,
mystical in quality, blending
the two extremes of the spectrum,
red and blue. Traditionally, purple
represents splendor, dignity,
royalty, rank, and wealth.

Purple is a unique color, and it
is a truly unique individual
who holds it dear.

I was really excited to receive an email from Louise Berenson in April, 2001. She'd found my website, and wrote to me because of having her Purple Profile on it. How neat! The internet is surely a wonderful thing!

Thank you to e-pal Kathleen for the article below!

From the November 3, 1998 issue of Woman's World.
No authors given, but since this is part of their weekly fashion spread, I would guess it's by either or both of the fashion editors/writers cited on the masthead. They are Jayne Cuniff and Carolyn Flamm.

What *Your* Favorite Shade of Purple Says About You

"Historically, purple has been the color of kings and queens," says New York psychotherapist Miriam Biddleman. "Its primary elements, red and blue, combine to create a striking color that expresses a wide range of thoughts and emotions."

Warm purples indicate:

Lavender: You're an optimist with an appreciation for nature. You're almost always in a sunny mood, and friends rely on you for a glimpse of "the brighter side."
Mauve: Your sophisticated surface projects confidence that conceals a sexy side. You've cultivated a worldly exterior to protect the sensitive soul within.
Magenta: Daring and attractive, you like to stand out from the crowd - and your unique sense of style helps you succeed in grabbing center stage!
Plum: Stately and formal, your high self-esteem lends you a serene exterior, because you know you always land on your feet.

...while cool purples suggest:

Periwinkle: A born dreamer, your youthful sense of wonder keeps your mind buzzing.
Lilac: You're an adventurous individualist who emanates confidence, and your genuine ability to like yourself impresses others.
Violet: Self-assured and dependable, you have a strong sense of character, and you possess a playful streak that makes you an amusing companion.
Eggplant: You're highly fashionable, with a developed taste for the finer things in life. Your vivid imagination allows you to take calculated risks in love.
