Purple and brick

Here is my second try out for the Rebecca Minkoff Instagram contest. I have been a big RM fan for so long so I must keep on trying, right? Forgot the mention winner gets two tickets to go to RM NY Fashion Week (a girl can dream).
In the heart of downtown Pearl District Portland there is this old wall. It stands alone looking nostalgic on a busy street. The colour instantly captured me when I first saw it (see the very first post last winter here). I have a strange love with anything brick. If I could, I'd live in a brick house surrounded by brick walls haha (I'd be that 3rd pig in the Three Little Pigs and the Wolf story lol).

Purple dress is seen in this previous post
Denim cropped jacket is last seen here (almost a year ago!)
Featuring bag is Rebecca Minkoff plum Morning After Mini (different colours here)
I love this flower pin my mum added for me!
 
Lastly, this is my friend who just had his senior high school picture taken recently. It just happened we chose the same location for our pictures so I want to share it here. What do you guys think? :)
 
p.s. different photographer though
 
I am sad summer is al....most over :(
But excited to go back to Brisbane in a week!
