  2. That bag is available at stylebop.com. I love looking at that site - they always have items that I end up using in wardrobes!
    thanks for being here,

  3. If I had to choose only one item it would certainly be that Paul Smith tote, absolutely gorgeous.
    Wish you a happy weekend.

  4. Adorable? Yes. Affordable? Maybe one piece...

    Love your choices though and it motivates to find close matches less expensive than, say, Tod's ballerinas.

  5. Ah, I would NEVER suggest that most of us can afford these items! But I try to show the nicest things that I can find, so that we can see what really well-made things look like. Also, it seems to me that the best images available for me to "grab" and use in these wardrobes tend to be from high-priced websites.
    These are aspirational, not directive. Some day, when we all earn what we're worth, that will change!

  6. Very nice set. Can you make a colour set for the Italian Riviera?

    After I've been looking at the pictures of the nicest things that you can find, I find the normal things, which I have boughten too much of before uninteresting so I'm saving up instead.

    Thanks!

  7. Perfect timing! I'm off for a four day trip to Panama and will definitely be using this and the "younger version" for inspiration. As it will be 96 degrees, I'll be adding some extra summer dresses to keep cool. My only dilemma is what to wear to an outdoor, corporate cocktail reception and dinner.

  8. Love that phrase: aspirational not directive.

  9. Definitely adorable and colours that I love. Now to make these pieces out of my fabric stash. Thanks.

  10. you're making me rethink red....something which I have somehow managed to unconsciously avoid adding to my wardrobe in such a long time, for no known reason.

    All about the tote bag - love that!

  11. I have a deep aversion to red and black and a greater one to red and white. Too jangly and overt. I see how others like it, just goes to show how colour affects various persons.

  12. Great color mix here, I adore red paired with black and white. And it's a combination I feel can be worn year round too.
