I’m always amazed when a bright shade of fuchsia or hot pink is considered a “special, seasonal” color, because it seems to me that it’s always available in some shape or form…

Love the way you have put this together – Pink is not my colour – I have Auburn hair blue eyes and pale skin therefore i'm an Autumn colouring I would love it if you could put an Autumn collection together with colours like purple dark green grey but no black

Yes…this is vivacious! Love the way you did these combinations, Janice!!
This pink has a lot of blue in it, and blue is always in season. My take is that the mid-range in saturation of any colour is wearable at least three seasons, and here in northeastern North Amrican, four.
I love the color and the way you put the outfits together. Question: have you purchased the Uniqlo pieces, particularly the tee shirts? I am a tall-ish person for whom tee shirts, when washed, tend to get too short in some cases. I am considering purchasing a couple of tee shirts (particularly because I like the price, and my tee shirts are very tired looking), but would like a review first. Any input? Thanks.

I've never purchased (yet) from Uniqlo – I'd love to hear from anybody who has, about their experience. Thanks!
I have purchased from Uniqlo. Their Tee Shirts are very long, great quality. I'm short-5'4". They hit me high thigh. I hem them. Fast delivery; great prices.
I will give them a shot. Thank you!
I am 5'8" and have a mid to long torso. I like their tshirt fit but I also never use a dryer so I can't speak to shrinkage.
Received my order of several tshirts today. Very happy with fit and feel. Hopefully they will wash well. Thanks for the tip!
I love how you show very few items in a fall accent colour with a basic wardrobe. Very inspiring and very refreshing. Thanks Janice!
I am with you on the so called seasonal colors. Fabrics yes, and to some extend prints also. But I do like dark brown tee shirts as much in the summer as I do my turquoise cashmere in the winter.

I just took this color combo on vacation with me. Several different shades of pink worked quite well.
I love that colour too! I'm just trying to think, but I can't remember any of it in my wardrobe except a 'closet orphan' t shirt. I think I need to get more intentional with my shopping so that I don't end up with one thing in a colour without anything to tie it into the rest of my wardrobe.
