Another Chaotic Goddess Swap!

I just finished the local flavors swap, but I had so much fun, I couldn't wait to get a chance to do it again.  So, when I saw that Chaotic Goddess was already signing up for another one, I signed up.

It's pretty straight forward:

Favorite Color Swap Rules
  • Packages must contain at least 5 items in your partner's favorite color.
  • Packages must cost a minimum of $15 and maximum of $25 BEFORE shipping.
  • Send a package that you, yourself, would like to receive- it should be personalized to fit your partner's preferences and style.
  • You must respond to emails from the swap hosts within a timely fashion.
  • You MUST post and link up your swap reveal post after receiving your package. This is non-negotiable.

So, I don't have a FAVORITE color.  But I took a look around and realized I have a lot of things that are eggplant and deep purple- even my blog background is kind of eggplant.  I think I like it because it's feminine, but not pink and girly.  Plus, it's a deep, rich color and  clothes in that color go good with my pale skin and dark hair.

Eggplant colors
Who knew there was so many shades of eggplant?  Pinterest did.  The fourth one is probably my favorite (although I think they're all eggplant).  I have a cute jacket in the same color as the fourth one that I just loved.  Unfortunately, I machine washed and dried it even though is said dry clean only.  Now the lining is slightly longer than the jacket. but I have been unable to part with it yet.  It hangs in my closet in my sewing room.   I keep hoping I'll come up with a plan to salvage it.

So if you blog, join up  and have some fun.  Signups end Saturday!


  1. Welcome to the swap, and thanks for joining up again! :)
    I always thought that second one was eggplant, and the others were variations on burgundy and wine. Awesome! I think it's a color that looks great on everyone.
    Can you hem the lining of the jacket short again, or is it shrunken all over? Maybe you can gently remove that lining of the jacket and fashion it into a top? Good luck!

  2. Beth, you could very well be right about the others being burgundy and wine. :) But, anything in that family is okay with me. I'm just not big on like crayola purples. I even really like lavender colored things. I guess it just has to be dark or light, not in the middle. :)

    As for my poor coat, I thought about trimming the lining out of it. It's a cute little double breasted trench with an empress waist, and it ties. I just haven't felt gutsy enough to try it yet. Although, I don't really have anything to lose at this point, do I. :)
