I know I've said this before, but if you're committed to wearing brown as a core neutral color, make sure that you've got your shopping plan well mapped-out and in hand at all times; brown is DIFFICULT to find! Be prepared to pick up your core items at any time, because truly beautiful, good-quality brown clothing does not grow on fashion trees... ... View the Post
The ever brilliant Juhli asked what would happen if someone with a good base wardrobe (like the sunset and sky wardrobe from here) wanted to expand their wardrobe. She pondered the wisdom of using one of the "eights" like the one in blue that I did here as a basis for acquisitions.

I will do my very best to choose beautiful things for you... ... View the Post
