Because the only good weather we've had this year has been in short bursts, I'm still hoping that Summer is round the corner! But it's vacation time so I've put together a basic Holiday Capsule wardrobe which, apart from the shorts, is basic enough to take you through into Autumn.
I hate to report that Autumn colors are
already creeping into the stores. I've been looking at the Pantone
colors for Fall and, in spite of what you might think, there are ALWAYS
colors around that will suit YOU whatever your natural coloring.
fashion colors are always watered down before they get to the High
Street and there will be a variation on a theme of colors. But stick to
your guns, follow fashion by all means but always follow your own color
direction and choose the shades that best flatter your complexion.
Do you get carried away in the Sales then find that a fabulous 'bargain' doesn't look quite as good once you get it home? A quality garment that fits into your current wardrobe at a discount price, however, is a real find!

Whatever your coloring, Fall 2017 has something for everyone... read more...
Because the Seasons are so often analyzed incorrectly, it's a good time to do a breakdown of the SUMMER color palette.
Summer is a 'complex' season because to be a TRUE SUMMER there must be 3 distinct color characteristics to your natural coloring. You must be LIGHT, COOL and MUTED (soft) and if you don't have all those 3 elements then you're probably not a season at all.
The first Girls's Capsule Ebook was such a success that Leanne, it's creator, has already produced the Fall version.
In the UK our schoolkids wear uniforms but in the US this is more unusual and can put more of a strain on Mom's pocket when the new school year is looming. I love the fact that the clothes choice is realistic and age related. The perfect gift for a daughter, niece or grand-daughter.
Q. I did the online test and I think I am the Light color family. Years
ago I found out that I am a summer. Can I wear the light colors and the
pretty much in the right direction. You may have been analyzed with the
Seasonal method and my free Quiz is based on the Tonal system. It's impossible to be completely accurate with what has to be a generic quiz of course.
