I'm not sure that I love this, exactly, but I have to admit that it's memorable, and it's sort of mesmerizing...

"What about your old girlfriend? Is she going to be here? I heard that she's a police officer?"

"Nope, no mere police officer. She's a forensic pathologist with the police...."

"Oh man, I know you passed your biology classes because of her, but I never imagined..."

Of course they didn't imagine. Are we surprised?

  1. It's certainly not an artwork that I would enjoy in my living space. However, the colours are striking. I often have the challenge of working with both navy and black in my wardrobe. Moving the blue to more this inky blue colour could be a good way to go........ Jazz

  3. This could have gone July 4th in a hurry. Great job. I love the shade of blue.

  4. Love the red on the lips and nails. What a great way to wear an accent color without purchasing a garment!

    1. This is exactly what I was thinking. It's just the right amount of red to pop, but take the outfit to July 4th territory.

  5. We are collecting a fabulous group of women through your stories. I really hope you are keeping all these so they can become a chapter or more in your book!! I really like the looks you have created for this woman. Such a mix of affordable and not so affordable items.

    1. I think that these women are going to be back in a couple of weeks - each of them probably has a longer travel adventure in their future...

  6. I honestly just want to wear a pair of red pumps with this wardrobe. I think that would be stunning!

    2. A woman may carry a bag, but its the shoes that carry the woman.

  7. Beautiful set. I think there are two different cardigans. :) Of course, both work.

    1. THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT CARDIGANS HERE! You have no officially caught me "in process" of building a post.

      But you're right; either cardigan would be fine here. A good sweater is always versatile...

      I don't think I'm going to fix this; I've got nothing to hide about how things work around here, do I?

      love,

  8. I'm loving this class reunion! If my old classmates were half this interesting I'd go to my next reunion. :)

  10. How timely! I have been wrangling these color families for an upcoming trip. Right now I have navy to medium blue, gray, and black neutrals, with white and dark red for accents. I need to keep playing, but luckily I have a couple of weeks. Now If I only had that Etro scarf to pull it all together! - nancyo

  11. I would pack the patent shoes and the gorgeous "Reflections" scarf too...

  12. Brilliant pairing of painting and occupation! I hope we don't lose you to the world of fiction any time soon, Janice - these vignettes suggest a whole other field for you.
    Love the pops of red in the lipstick and nail varnish. Also the second version of the dress with the short sleeves. It would make it more versatile for those of us who don't have toned arms - I could wear that with or without a cardie.
    Now wondering about the cutie-pie with blonde curls who was so good at Italian, dancing and making people happy. What's she been doing since school and what is she she going to wear?

  14. As much as I love your beautifully curated wardrobes, I love your comments from the imaginary college reunion even more. Like a Hallmark movie but with everyone in perfectly coordinated and accessorized clothes....

  15. That Etro scarf is so perfect! This color grouping is always one of my favorites! These reunion ladies are awesome!! Can't wait to see what happens next!

  16. We used to have a deer skull at home and I must say it does not fit our home design. But I wrote research paper service about animal skulls in the past, hope you can find time to check it out.
