  1. Beautiful! I love the colors on this one--it's a wardrobe I would love to have wholly. I'm definitely looking into those mocs.

  2. I am loving the work that you do with these wardrobes. I am going on a river cruise in a few weeks, so I was very interested in this post.

  3. I am the requestor of this ensemble and I am "gob smacked". It is totally different than what I anticipated and is fabulous. I now have the fun of trying to find similar items or even if possible exactly what you picked. For sure the Lamberston bag as that will be easy thanks to your earlier post. The styles and colours you selected are very different from my interpration of casual and Autumn but they are stunning. Thank you, thank you.

  4. The thing that really struck me when you chose La Trappestine as a painting that you loved was that, while the warm colors are certainly there, there's a subtlety about the painting and the contrasts that I wanted to capture for you. I'm so happy you're pleased! love, Vivienne

  5. ok, I'm back. I just looked at the details and have to tell you that I think you are a mind reader and incredibly talented. You have selected jewelry and other accessories that are my style down to a T. I am guessing you were using not only the colours in the painting but also its design esthetic to guide your process.

    Please consider using this talent if you aren't already. I can see theatre groups/movies benefiting from your creative views for dressing the characters ( and I bet their cars and homes).

    that's a big hug, just in case you're not familiar with this particular texting convention

    The feedback I get from you all is so important to me right now. I'm working as a temp and it's very trying on one's self-confidence!

  7. (((( Vivienne))) I am now risking being a gusher but really you chose designers I have long admired such as Stephen Zweck and Bottega Veneta and even the textures I love like metal,
    suede, tortoise shell.

  8. I think what we can conclude from our being so well connected is that your choice of painting was a good one, and that the idea of working from a painting has real merit! Thanks so much for your request - if you ever want a different wardrobe for another season or activity, I'm game!

  9. I am so sorry to hear that your work day is less than fulfilling and supportive. It must be so draining for such an artistic and creative person not to be able to work in an empowering environment! I have quietly been following your blog for some weeks and am totally enthralled. I really look forward to each new post. Please, please continue and I'm sure the eventual e-book will go down a storm :-)

  10. Dear Vivienne,

    The painting is beautiful, and your interpretation of the colours and soft garment lines are excellent.

  11. Having been on a Baltic cruise in the summer, I highly recommend the wardrobe itinerary you have posted. Good walking shoes are key - the traveler will be up and down steps that are hundreds of years old. The weather is also very iffy, so layers are a must.

    Excellent, as always, Vivienne!

  12. Hi Vivienne,
    I'm new to your blog. Your taste and talent are amazing! I hope you find your niche as a stylist. I would think a big department store or high-end boutique would welcome you with open arms if TV/film work isn't an option/doesn't appeal. Best of luck.
