Ashley in Switzerland, among many Anonymous requests, asked me for a wardrobe of warm hues. I've been working on a general "spring" wardrobe for a while so I thought I'd share this one with you. I hope you enjoy, and don't forget, if you have a specific wardrobe request, leave me a comment! I'm particularly enjoying the requests based on specific paintings or scarves - maybe someone has a beautiful piece of pottery or china upon which I could design something? It may take me a few weeks to fulfill your request, but I will definitely get to everybody! ... View the Post
The lovely Anonymous asked "I would love to see your creative French style on a wardrobe capsule which uses: Navy, Chocolate Brown and Soft White ( base colours) with Soft blue, Soft pink and Lavender as accents."

The lovely Kate asked for a wardrobe "rich medium brown, tan/caramel/cognac, and army green. For the colors any mix of light olive green, mustard yellow, orange, teal, plum, and terra cotta.". This one doesn't include all of those, but it's a start. And there are more autumn hued wardrobes under construction, so stay tuned! And thanks, so much, for your request.
Remember, if there's something special you'd like to see in a wardrobe, just leave me a comment and I'll put it on the list!

I've been asked how I managed for almost 6 weeks with the very limited amount of clothing that I took with me on that trip that will live in infamy. I had a plan, believe me!
Just for reference, remember that these are the clothes that I had with me.
For flying, I pretty much always wore jeans, with the black v-neck sweater. Usually I would put either the white tee shirt or the striped tee shirt under the sweater, depending on how warm it was where I was leaving, what the weather would be where I was arriving, and what was clean!
First thing I did in the door of every new hotel in every new city/country was to give some clothing to the in-house laundry. This is always risky, because you never know when someone's going to throw your ... View the Post
Vivienne and I first got to be friends because of packing - she works in a hotel in Paris and was helping me pull together a training session I was running - and after the first or second day, she said something like "you got dressed in my closet this morning" and then we wound up having drinks, and THEN she came up to my room to eat room service (Gratis, since she works for the hotel) and hanging out with me while I did my ironing.
Bottom line, I know the girl's packing philosophy cold, since she and I have the same approach.
Start with a base of 5 garments, no matter how long or how short the trip: Jacket or cardigan Pants that match Skirt that matches Top that goes with the above Another top that matches
Vivienne would go with a ... View the Post
