  1. After seeing all your posts, I realize I do not own one yellow garment. Not one. Now I am on a mission to make something yellow. Why don't I own any? Love that combination, thanks!

  2. Well, I don't own any yellow, because I look like death warmed over in yellow! But it's a beautiful color on many people, especially this soft yellow, and especially in warmer weather.
    thanks for being here,

  3. Those Erdem pieces are divine. Paris, April: my most appreciated garment has been a cashmere cardi or t-shirt, and it would also be a good idea to have a pashmina or the perfect Bompard cashmere voile. Can't wear yellow either, unless it has so much green it's chartreuse.

  4. This is a gorgeous wardrobe, as are all of the ones I've seen so far. I'm leaving on a two week cruise (swoon) in a few weeks, with about ten days at sea (double swoon). I'm trying to put together a packing list, so I don't look too dressed up, or to shleppy for those sea days. I'm certainly going to search your suggestions for some ideas. Thanks.

  5. Love it!!! I love your yellow sets, even better with navy! Perfect!

  6. I'll echo "charming". I like the paler yellow with navy, as you've concocted the wardrobe. Not my color, but I just love all the pieces, espcially the navy Nicole Farhi skirt. Lots of ideas here.

  7. Hi. Found you through The Dashing Eccentric and love your blog (new follower).


  8. Thanks so much for your inspirational posts - they have really been such a help in my search for the perfect, authentic wardrobe! I was delighted to see your post April in Paris because...I am going to Paris for ten days in April! I really love and suit grey as a basic, do you have any suggestions for color combinations using grey as a basic? I definitely suit the pinks and lilacs, but would love a visual representation if you could! Also, what shoes would you recommend wearing for walking around Paris - I have back problems, and need comfortable shoes, but refuse to wear the dreaded sneakers! I have looked EVERYWHERE for the perfect walking shoe that combines comfort with support and aesthetic sensibility, but have yet to find them! Thanks in anticipation! Patsy x

  9. I'm visiting from Tish's blog. Love all of the yellow you've included. It gives everything a nice fresh feeling. But then again, I love yellow and fortunately it looks good on me.
