Breaking Bad and the color Purple

A while ago I started watching Breaking Bad, and unusually good tv drama
about a high school chemistry teacher who finds out he has terminal cancer,
and starts cooking crystal meth to provide for his family when he's gone.
There's a lot to be said about this tv-show, but one thing I have noticed,
and wanna talk about today, is Marie Schrader, the purple lady of the show.
She's not a particularly likeable character, but everything she wears and everything
in her home is purple. Yes, EVERYTHING. Clothes, duvets, toasters, ladles - you name it.
This is reason enough for me to love the girl :)

From "Marie's Blog" on the Breaking Bad website:

Purple Is the Most Universally Flattering Color

I know purple isn't too popular, but if you ask me, I think it's all Miss Piggy's fault. She ruined purple for everyone. Think about it. Who wants to wear the same color as a lady pig? So I've decided it's my mission in life to undo Miss Piggy's campaign of terror and help people see how great purple is.

First of all, it's a very soothing color. Seriously, scientists have done studies with brain waves and convicts and everything. Of course, I could have told them that, because I always feel a little calmer when I wear purple. I think that's why it is the color of royalty, because if you're the king and you could wear anything you want, wouldn't you want to wear something calming? (Except, I don't think it always works, because I know Marie Antoinette must have worn a lot of purple and we know what happened to her. Whoops, head! But I bet you anything she was very relaxed when they took her to the guillotine.)

It's also versatile -- you can wear darker plum tones for evening, or cheerful lavenders for day! I am a medical professional, and I do not have time to dilly dally in the morning -- my patients need me! With purple, you don't have to agonize over your look for hours; just put together a few well-chosen basics, and voila! Instant style! (Some people will tell you that purple doesn't flatter them. Totally untrue! You just have to find the right shade.)

I rest my case.

  1. I've heard so much about this show I think I'll go and check it out. Purple is definitely one of my favorites, especially the darker plum version. Makes me really wish for fall and halloween to arrive :)



Lately I have been falling behind answering comments, for many reasons. But I read and cherish all of them! Your comments make my day, yay!
