Eartha Kitt was born to Wear Purple

My mother preferred wearing earth-tone colors (Hey, her name was Eartha), but the one color she was drawn to was Purple ?.

The meaning of color, #wearpurple


When you look up the meaning of color you discover that purple is a rare occurring color in nature and as a result is often seen as having sacred meaning. Lavender, orchid, lilac and violet flowers are considered delicate and precious.


  • It has a variety of effects on the mind and body; including uplifting spirits, calming the mind and nerves, creating feelings of spirituality, increasing nurturing tendencies and encouraging imagination and creativity.
  • Not to mention that it is also known as the color of royalty. ?


            Seems to me that my mother, Eartha Kitt was born to #WearPurple. ?? ?


And yes, those are the pointy ears of a dog you see hiding in the feathers. ?


love in purple

    I love purple; it’s very refreshing to know a person I have admired most of my life also shared that love. When I was a teenager, I painted my bedroom purple. As an adult I wear purple most days, whether that is in clothing or jewelry. I recently colored my hair purple. I am royalty! #WearPurple

    Speaking of purple, is there any chance the love bracelet with the amethyst beads is coming back? I’ve been eyeing it for months but it’s never listed as being in stock.

    My Mother loves Purple too…was always her favorite color!
    Though my Mother is still with us physically…she was diagnosed with dementia several years ago…I’ve grown to love the color purple too…because of my Mother…and after all…it is the color of Royalty.
    Your Mothef and mine are Queens to me????????????
