  1. Loved it then, love it now. A word about substituting items..... These capsules are so carefully put together, it's very easy to swap items, as long as you keep to the formula. You can even slide it up and down the formal/casual scale. It all works!

  2. I always think of that shade of bright blue as "French blue." This whole capsule is wonderful.

  3. You do realize this was one of daddy's favorite combinations even though he couldn't "see" it. He always said there was something about fresh earth and the blue sky that just meant to be put together.
