So, if you haven’t heard, Turquoise is the “it” color for 2010.  While I love turquoise, I love other colors more.  Namely, plum/eggplant.  Jewel tones are gorgeous at ANY time of the year, and this purple can be rocked is something fun and flirty, or long and elegant (I’m talking bridesmaids dresses).

And, if you don’t want to take my word for it, see for yourself.

Or this one, which I’m a huge fan of and plan on purchasing for something.  It’s from Nordstrom, too, which means it’s an easy buy.
