  1. This may be my favorite yet! I adore the blush signature items. I just have steered away in fear of looking too 'pink'. I went through a very regrettable "Elle Woods" phase in college. Lots of pink, and unfortunately, lots of Laura Ashley. It was dreadful. So, now I have a fear of pink. But, I think blush may be my reentry into the territory...peach and beige. Good food for thought.

    I'm working hard on my core...and discovering, my accident that TEAL is my signature. I had no idea until I actually began looking hard at what I already owned. It's amazing to discover that I've subconsciously been moving in this direction and didn't realize it.

    Thank you again for all the wonderful inspiration.

  2. I will be starting the shopping fast in January and this capsule is just pure temptation. Lovely as always, Janice. And I am getting so much more comfortable with your new format, especially when a follower tipped me off to the archive button on the side. I rely heavily on so many of your past posts for inspiration. Thank you.

  3. I love the warm paired with blush.

    Your site has inspired me to find treasures in my closet. I'm not necessarily where I want my wardrobe to evolve to, but I'm delighted to find that I've got a lot to work with in the time being.

  4. PS. I asked about how those of us who are light, clear light, soft, or warm should adapt their wardrobes as our hair grays and as our skin changes in mid-life. (Oh, those lovely winters have it made when it comes to this!) Actually, I think I'm already picking up some great ideas from your site that will work for me as my light spring/light summer complexion/hair are changing. Of course, any suggestions would be appreciated.

  5. I wore a warm common wardrobe accented with red today and felt pretty darn good. This new website of yours makes everything so easy to find.

  6. Wow, I love this! It really makes me want to be able to wear blush and brown but alas, no.
