Winners! And a Small Change on The Vivienne Files

Okay - that wonderful Talbots giveaway from last week has ended; we have winners!

The winning comments were:

  • #becauseimalady I know comfort and style are not mutually exclusive.
  • #becauseimalady I know classy never goes out of style.
  • #because I'm a lady I know why there is a difference between sweatshirts and sweaters!

What a delightful batch of comments! I was very impressed with the degree to which so many of us demonstrably value kindness, sensitivity to others, self-respect and a positive attitude - exactly what I would have expected, based upon the years of warm, honest, respectful and friendly comments that we've shared here...

If you'd like some of my new business cards to share with friends and acquaintances, just drop me a line at with your mailing address and how many cards you would like...

Winners, please send me your address so that I can send your $100 gift cards - and if you feel like sharing, let me know what you plan to purchase...

to all of you,


  1. I love your new logo. It definitely conveys what this website is all about. Congratulations.

  2. Love the logo! Is it possible that a couple of lines are out of place? The second shirt appears to have a cuff, and the fourth shirt doesn't appear to have a hem.

  3. Like the logo, although it looks quite lonely up there. Needs somethkng...

    1. I agree with "needs something" but I think the something is something colorful!! I don't just choose this blog because of minimalism or order or simplicity or fashion. I choose it because of your posts regarding colors and how to complement them within a practical wardrobe. Not sure how to convey that, of course, it's a lot to convey in a logo, but if you could bottle it and sell that "je ne sais quoi" that'd be great ;)

  4. I agree with Joyce P - while I like the logo and what it conveys, I do think it needs a wee bit more.
    Congratulations to all the winners.

  5. The logo indeed had an error in it, and has temporarily been replaced with an old favorite. More work to be done!
    thanks for your sharp eyes!
    hugs all around,

  6. Congratulations to the winners! What wonderful and inspirational comments. : )

  7. I like the new logo! I think the color contrast (white on pink in my screen, I think, but now the header is a photo) could be stronger. Maybe dark grey on pink? In any case, I love the hangers and clothes rack look.

  8. I can say. Keep it up and I will follow every single one of them :)
