  1. Oh, I love blues! This is a beautiful grouping.

  2. Darling combos and colors; I wish I could be going on a summer tour/summer vacation right this very minute, with these very clothes! They're ageless. You have no limits to creativity when it comes to putting together the right clothes; never ceases to amaze me; you've never once posted anything I don't like! I also enjoyed Tish's post today on your continuing "Bride" series.

  3. I love that scarf! Great combinations for it.

  4. I love this wardrobe. It's what I wish my closet looked like (perfect combination of dressy and formal). Could you put something together for me that's more of a soft summer palette? I don't have a particular accessory in mind, but I'd love the inspiration! I'm trying to build a closet that's better for me, and I don't always know where to go. Thanks (as always) Janice!

  5. I'm a regular visitor and I must say you have beautiful combos and your style is classy but still very modern! You have made me to believe that Hermes(-type) of scarves are very useful, but could you also give us some advise how to wear them? I personally find those square-shaped scarves very difficult to use... I prefer rectangular scarves!

  6. I really like that blue and orange combination. What a fantastic scarf!

  7. I tried on this scarf when I was in Seattle, only they had it in pink. If they had it in this beautiful field of blue, it would be in my wardrobe right now!

  8. Merci Janice!

    I didn't check your blog because yesterday was my birthday and I was out and about (wearing my scarf, of course).

    What a treat to log in and see the scarf inspired you. I love how you combined it. Even more thrilled that I have similar garments in my wardrobe. It's like I have the Vivienne stamp of approval! What a fantastic birthday present.

    Bonne chance Monday Janice. I am so grateful you share your talents with us.


  9. I love the blues. Your collections are exceptional. I love color collections.
