  1. The top seems almost black next to the navy pants which makes me wonder if a column of color does not actually have to be one single color, but two colors with the same saturation? Like black and navy, or dark brown and navy? Would that still count as a column? Thanks!

  2. The shoes make these outfits (love those blue suede [and pink] shoes!). I see that your minimalism mantra does not include footware, Janice. :)

  4. I have always liked a solid shell, it is such a classic. Never would have put navy and purple together, but I like and the deep gold.

  5. Vivienne,

    I hate to beat a dead horse, but I cannot thank you enough for your thoughts on this blog. I know I said this before but I stumbled across your blog last September after a business trip to Paris. Since first reading your website, I've really pared down my wardrobe. I only kept things that (1) fit and (2) flatter. I've probably gotten rid of about 100 articles of clothing, and I don't miss a single item.

    Also, thanks to your recommendations for the wardrobe pallette you made for me several months ago (the berry and turquoise floral landscape), I've limited my color choices to colors that really flatter my hair color and skin tone. I've also finally given up on wearing greys and khaki colors. I don't know why I was always trying to wear those colors, but now I recognize how awful I always looked in them.

    Anyway, thanks again for putting this blog together. You've made my morning routine less stressful. :)

  8. Navy colored shoes, boots are really hard to find. I am not a big Internet shopper for shoes, I should probably start . I have had one pair in the last five years. Would really like to have at least anne pair of each. Love the post
