So Noble is Royal Purple

Dear Diary:

Royal Purple, or Tyrian purple, is linked to royalty.  Early in history, purple-dyed cloth was very expensive so only the wealthy could afford it.  As a result, it became a status symbol for those high up in society.

To dye the cloth this particular colour, one had to obtain a natural secretion from sea snails.  Talk about labour intensive work!

But - oh -  I do feel very royal  in this look.

Good Night for now.
