Your Opinions, please

The extremely lovely people at She-Beads have made us an offer we can't refuse - they will make a one-of-a-kind bracelet for me to give away to one of you!

So, they asked me what color scheme I would prefer...

I have a preference - the colors of The Vivienne Files - greys, white and soft pink.

But in order to give us all a choice, I culled back through Pinterest to find the most frequently repinned images and color schemes, and the last four of these options came from there.

So which do you love the most? Which would make a gorgeous bracelet?

have a glorious holiday weekend,
love,
Janice

  1. Option E! My colors, through and through!

  2. How nice....they are all lovely, but I prefer E. I love gray and rust together and I would never have thought of that color combination without seeing it on your blog. It has been difficult to find the right accent pieces that pull them together. I have one scarf with those colors, but would love something I could wear in the summer because I have a great linen tee from J. Crew in rust and a beautiful draped sleeveless top in rust. It is kind of tough to integrate rust into a summer wardrobe. Thank you.

  3. All would be beautiful, but I vote for Option E as well.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Option C, please...with maybe the addition of a little pop of rose or fuschia? (This probably doesn't turn up in your Pinterest stats, but I'm slowly making my way through all of your past posts--I read a handful most days. I'm still in 2012, and enjoying it all IMMENSELY. Such gorgeous clothing--all I can do is sigh. Many, many thanks...)(BTW, most of your guest post links from several years ago have died, I think when the hosts (Woman of a Certain Age?) redesigned her website. Such a shame, because they always look like fascinating topics...)

    1. She has a great blog, too. If you do a search on her blog for Vivienne, all of the posts from here pop up and you can just flip from one to the next :)

    2. Ooh, thanks! That's a great tip! I'll check it out.

  5. I can't successfully wear warm colors. So I prefer A

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd pick A but would add some navy, my current favourite colour

    1. I second that! It's a pretty color combo as is, but I'm transitioning from black to navy.

      Delete
    2. Another vote for A, it is very difficult to find this combination in accessories in the market right now.

      Delete
    3. I prefer A too- and a navy touch would be lovely!

      Delete
    4. Another vote for converting black to navy! Or making C have grays instead of browns. :) Why do I always like the things that are not a choice!!???

      Delete
    5. Navy would be my pick too, had there been a choice with navy.

      Delete
  7. Couldn't the winner choose her own scheme?

    ReplyDelete
  8. All, just lovely, but if I had to choose ... option E. As someone whose entire wardrobe is brown or black, I have learned a lot about incorporating color from reading Vivienne's blog.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Definitely E please. Thanks Ruthie

    ReplyDelete
  10. I lean towards A & B... but would prefer to answer, "One of each, please!" :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Either A or D. What lovely combinations.

    ReplyDelete
  12. C gets my vote. Such a beautiful dusty blue, and it looks wonderful with the pale gray as well as the taupe and brown. (Normally I find brown to be uninspiring, but it works so well when combined with the other colors.)

  13. I have had a look at the She Beads web site and there a lots of color combinations there that I like! I like the black and white, the white and black, the multi tropical are combination has all the flair of Carmen Miranda. My favorite is the blue, green and white Emmy. I have just had a look at their collections and they are all wonderful. I want the brightest one - the one that stands out the most so I can show it off! I like D. Thanks Carol S

    1. Me again. I have just watched the video on how they make the beads. Each bead pattern is a work of art and it takes a while to put together a string of beads. Beautiful, distinctive and individual work. Gorgeous Carol S.

    1. My favorites as well!

  15. E would be my choice, but C is lovely too!

    ReplyDelete
  16. D! The red would make a beautiful bracelet statement!

    ReplyDelete
  17. A would be lovely for the grey-haired among us. I am working out my summer basic wardrobe right now and pink will probably be the accent colour.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My vote is for A, followed by D please.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Option A please. I also like the navy suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  20. C, A, and E are my top 3.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like A first, and C second.

    ReplyDelete
  22. E please. Although I do like the Blackhawks beads as I am also from Chicago.

    ReplyDelete
  23. C and then A for me. How will you decide?! All would be gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A. (D would be perfect if the camel was swapped out for grey.)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like D...chic, confident, sassy and strong!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Option C is my choice, I love the brown and blue combination.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hands down, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hmm such a difficult choice, I like A but would substitute Olive for the Black so I am not much help at all so A!
    I ordered a pair of shoes from Shoes of Prey. I will let you know how they turn out.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Option B please. :-)

    Francesca

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's your party so it should be A, but if they gave your readers a discount for B...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Definitely prefer A, with C second. Sounds like a nice offer!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is very generous. E is my vote.

  33. Dear Janice

    How will you choose the winner? From all the lovely options, how can I choose. If you pick me, I want B.

    Thanks again for all you do for your devoted fans.

  34. Oh, I have to go with C. It's very pretty.

  35. A or C get my vote. Love the combination of grey and soft pink, but blue is lovely, too. SheBeads sounds like a place to investigate.

    ReplyDelete
  36. J'adore option A.
    We visited the "Vivienne" covered walkway near the Palais Royale with shops and bistro in Paris and thought of you!
    I spied some tiles and voila "Vivienne" marked very clearly on the floor and smiled....they are just like your blog header!!!!

  38. I would love to wear four of the options, but I would have to vote for B.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I go for d definitely. Great idea BTW ! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  40. C please, since I have a scarf to wear with it! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Although my personal preferences are A, B and D, I vote for A -- specifically because of your original reasoning (they are the Vivienne Files colors), which means that whoever wins it will have that extra reminder of your wonderful, wonderful, wonderful blog. Linda T

    ReplyDelete
  42. Definitely A. C a distant second. Because A would fit in my wardrobe, though possibly I could get C to fit in. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. A of course! I didn't hesitate for one second. It would be the most flattering to all skin tones.
    Happy weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. A and C are the most appealing to me.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I vote for C. I just have to have blue somewhere in my wardrobe. I love the subdued colors too. Thanks so much for all you do, Janice. I look forward to reading your blog every day.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I vote for 'A' but having seen their work, choosing one blind-folded would still work for any of us! Unique art.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I prefer the Vivienne Files colours. Of the rest, I prefer C and A. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I prefer the Vivienne Files colours. Of the rest, I prefer C and A. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. A or C - love them both and LOVE your blog!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. A, then C as a second choice

    ReplyDelete
  51. Good day, I do not comment on blogs, as a general rule. I do, however, organize my wardrobe around color combinations. And I love jewelry (both fine jewelry and costume, if interesting). I have found it difficult to locate bracelets that combine pink and grey. I usually settle for mostly silver/white gold jewelry, with scarf that combines the palette more completely. I would vote for Option A. And I very much appreciate your work, as do the other ladies who will be going to Rome and the south of France with me in one week; I have contributed to their list of addictions by introducing them to The Vivienne Files.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Another vote for A! Such a perfect combo.

    ReplyDelete
  53. They are all lovely but A is the loveliest

    ReplyDelete
  54. None of them match my wardrobe very much so I guess I will vote for A for the Vivienne File colors! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. A please, with C as a close second choice.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Gosh, I really love D...be they're all beautiful,

    ReplyDelete
  57. It is E for me followed by B. They would both work with my colours. Love the blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think combination a would make the prettiest bracelet.

    ReplyDelete
  59. A but substituting the black for the pretty powder blue in C. Black will look too harsh in the delicate design of the beads.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would choose B, D, or E. What a great giveaway -- thanks to you and Shebeads!

    ReplyDelete
  61. For me, the most beautiful is the first one -

    A

    ReplyDelete
  62. I must agree with you! Choice A!

    ReplyDelete
  63. A, please. I agree with Beatriz.

    ReplyDelete
  64. A please, it's one of my favorite combinations and that pale pink next to my face takes ten years off my face. Thank you for the chance to vote.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I vote for A, C and E in that order. Thanks for sharing their beautiful jewelry, I have two She-Beads bracelets on the way to me.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I would vote for A followed by C.

    ReplyDelete
  67. My vote is for E, as it would work well with my current wardrobe. However how could anyone resist A, in The Vivienne Files colour scheme?

    ReplyDelete
  68. My favorite is the E combination, with its mix of earthy and vibrant colors. Its very Southwestern.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I vote for A as these are my colours. I absolutely love D with its amazing pop of red, but sadly, those colours just do not suit my skin tone.

    ReplyDelete
  70. B - the colours I wear most often when traveling long-term. What fun to wear in distant climes!

    ReplyDelete
  71. A,C,& E are my faves.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Bracelet A! Thank you for your blog: I changed my wardrobe and no longer buy just items. I now have a plan and it works, thanks to you!

  74. How lovely and generous - I vote B as it's not a combination easily found outside of custom work.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm all for D, just my colors

    ReplyDelete
  76. I vote for C! )

    ReplyDelete
  77. A is definitely my colors!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. A is my favorite and the colors I wear the most.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hhhmmmmmm, I've noticed that several people have left more than one comment. Does that double their chances of winning? It goes against my sense of fair play. What about you?

    ReplyDelete
  80. A for general occasion. E for Autumn

    ReplyDelete
  81. Red is good luck in bracelets, like red roses, so D is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Your Photographer Friend likes B. The color Green has been proven to boost happiness (wish I could find the link of the article I read so I could share with you).

    ReplyDelete
  83. My vote if for A, I just love that color scheme!
