Tyrian Purple

Dear Diary:

I had no idea that there was a colour called "Tyrian Purple" until I looked it up and found this:

Definitions of 'Tyrian purple'
1. highly prized crimson or purple dye of classical antiquity, originally obtained at great expense from a certain shellfish: later shown to be an indigo derivative and synthetically produced, and now replaced by other synthetic dyes
2. vivid, purplish red
Originating in Tyre, this colour is mentioned in writings dating back to 1600 BC.

I didn't go quite back that far but I did pick up this cute dress at Vintage Fair.
Good Night for now.
