  1. Thanks for the great photos Janice. The grey set is very nice and versitile. Actually a year ago I didn't know that such nice adult accessories exist.

  2. These are all so amazing. Really great posts. It's so fun to see the color pallette/accessories to go with so many great pieces. I never thought of pairing many of them and have found a whole new set of fun and possibilities. Thanks so much!

  3. I especially like the grey with the cognac brown. Very chic.

  4. You are a busy lady! I saw your graduation collection for at A Femme d'un Certain Age and it was wonderful. Wish I had known you when I traveled to my sons' graduations. I wasn't exactly coordinated. I love the grey. I found a grey dress in my closet that I can't wait to style using one of your suggestions.

  5. Hi! Can you show some dresses that aren't sleeveless...or cap sleeves? Do they even make such a thing anymore?!

    Or are these sleeveless ones just more versatile for some reason?

  6. Another GREAT it and I love grey. I wouldn't have thought to pair orange with it but it looks great.

  7. I love these variations-on-a-dress postings, especially the inspired pairings with gray...but agree with Anonymous above that on my big wish-list is a basic, versatile dress with three-quarter-length sleeves (which are much more flattering to women of a certain age than sleeveless! I'd as soon bare my belly button as my upper arms. :)).
