Never explain, never complain, that's Cherie's motto. Admittedly Cherie has little about which to complain, but a teeny explanation for yesterday.
Cherie was socially overbooked. It happens all the time. Sorting through the scores of invitations weekly is a chore and a burden. So many people want Cherie at their luncheons, cocktails, dinners, soirees that sorting out the wheat from the chaff, shopping, dressing, primping, pampering, preparing is an exhausting full-time job. But, as previously mentioned, Cherie never complains.
Fine then. You-Know-Who left a note saying several of you do not like the idea that camel is one of the season's primary colors. Some also said they did not like gray, but that conundrum has been resolved apparently by pointing out there are grays and grays. So that subject is closed.
Same thing applies to camel. No there are not camels and camels, but there are scores of tones, hues and nuances on the family of colors that will keep everyone on message. Perhaps it's the yellow in the camel that doesn't agree with some complexions, in that case think pink. Beiges and tans with a hint of pink can be extremely kind, sort of like painting the inside of your lampshades pink. You know that trick. Cherie has done that -- rather had it done by her decorator -- in all her houses and apartments.
And, don't forget there is always leopard. You get a camel canvas with the kick of the leopard's spots. This one's for you chere Pseu.
Since YKW also cautioned about being too wordy, let's let the pictures do the talking shall we?
That way Cherie still has time to get to her day spa appointment.
From the top: Vuitton; Lands' End "mink heather" cashmere T-shirt; Talbot's leopard; Burberry; Talbot's herringbone (an interesting option); Eileen Fisher cardigan; Michael Kors (a quieter camel); silk blouse from Ann Taylor (great investment piece); Louis Vuitton; Chloe; Gucci; Chloe; Miu Miu, Dior and Chloe.
If you don't have enough choices and ideas here, Cherie may consider retiring.
Bon weekend, Cherie plans on having one.
