Then, in 2008, I took a job as a color consultant for a company that specialized in personal care, and had to take lessons in color theory. While doing that, I also took the time (just out of curiosity) to research the meanings and symbols of colors, especially when it came to flowers. It was during that research that my opinion of purple did a complete turnabout.
You see, I've suffered from migraine disease since I was about twelve, and (I can't remember from which website I read this, but...) it turns out that purple is a great color to help curb migraines. So, I tried using it as a background color on my website, and sure enough... It is a lot more soothing to the eyes (my migraines are ocular). And, since then, I've also added it to my home decor and wardrobe.
That shocked me all the more (the wardrobe), because on the day that I finally wore this deep purple shell that had been hanging in my closet for years, a woman who worked with me, but never spoken to me before, stopped me and said it was the best color that she's ever seen me in, and that I should definitely wear it more often. I never knew that that simple shell would become my purple cow, but I've not worn it again, either. Its neckline isn't comfortable, but I've since bought a few more shirts of that color and have worn them instead.
