  1. It boggles the mind how much versatility a well curated wardrobe has. Lots of choices, non boring or repetitive. You are a creative genius, Janice.

  2. One of my top 5 favorites. I love it all, but especially the oxfords and the boots.

  3. My only problem is really that I like nearly all of your colour combos... they all appeal!! So which do I limit my wardrobe to - it seems to vary by season and I usually end up with a couple of combos per season, too, with possibly a couple of items that interact. And now I have far fewer clothes, too - that's why your 333 seemed so much when you put it all out there, I think I could do outfits forever with that lot!

  4. The soft blue 'signature' colour is a masterly touch. I love the way you use colour and accessories to make the combinations feminine. There's nothing that says 'I'm a very practical outfit', even though they are.

  5. I really, really like this, Janice. It gives me a possibility of doing so much more with my blacks. I made a comment in the last post about loving these combinations (mistakenly referring to the caramel as camel) and I, in fact, saw a very stylish teenage girl this afternoon who could have been a living example of this post. Her outfit was amazingly generationless...for any age...and she looked darling. Cute brunette, swingy ponytail. Black skinny pants tucked in caramel/camel boots, with a gorgeous caramel/camel lacy top that appeared to be tight crochet. She had a well-cut, black, short blazer and, I swear, she could have been in an ad for Guess, Old Navy, i.e. she looked as good as any young model (and I was thinking, man--!!--I wish I'd had the knack myself, or at least somebody who could have helped me to dress as well when I was age 15 or so; instead, I looked like a geek but, I do have to admit/consider that, in many ways, young girls today, maybe from a variety of influences and maybe more choices/options in clothing, seem to be more fashionable than we "kids" were in the '60s & '70s, or at least they know how to put it all together more expertly). IMHO, of course. I remember being much more focused on makeup at that age than clothes.

  6. I love this! These are my favorite color combinations, although i do have some variation in my shades of brown from chocolate to taupe and also i have some teal blue with the storm blue.

  7. I love your ideas. I would love to see the project 333 wardrobe idea with only one dress or skirt but still with your style. Skirts and dresses just aren't worn here by many people at work.
