Another Day, Another Scarf. . .

Swoon worthy Astley Clark earrings.
       Ed. Note: This is it, this is the day the cover will receive its final, final tweaking and polishing. Then, that's one major element, and a very exciting one at that, that is ready to roll. 

          Therefore -- well, you know what's coming -- I've turned to Janice and her winsome wardrobe wonders. Today she builds her capsule six-pack combinations around plum. I was never a purple/plum fan, but the color and all of its nuances, like mauve for example is definitely starting to appeal. Mauve and navy for example, so pretty together.  Click below please to see more of her amazing ideas to make life easier and more interesting: The Vivienne Files.

I used to love many things about this blog, but the constant posts of outfits by another blogger aren't one of them. Au revoir, alas...

Love the first combo...polished, casual, so attractive.

Au revoir, Anonymous,

I'm doing the best I can under the circumstances and I think these wardrobes are superb.

All the best,

Love the Vivienne Files, and love your post. The "files" make life so much easier for me!...and your posts....I split my time between France and NY and find your post both informative as well as amusing!

Anonymous can suck it!
Leaving negative comments is a complete, utter waste of everyone's time. I think these posts are a great fill-in when you are bringing such a huge and wonderful project to fruition. Big HUGE props to you, Tish.

Plum, rarely consider it, but this post -- I want every item! Totally love it. Thank you Janice. Tish, keep plugging away, what excitement you must feel. Bon weekend, xo, C.

I am impressed by Vivienne and always read her blog, and what a friend she has been to you! I also read so many of the blogs that you recommend on your site, Tish. You have splendid friends to help you fill in while you work on something else that is important to you. But I feel you have little interest in your blog anymore and that disappoints me, as does your loyalty to what made your book offer possible in the first place.

What a lovely, springlike palette! These options chase away my winter doldrums.

And forgive me, Tish - erase this if you feel compelled to do so - but I just have to speak.

Anonymous - one of the reasons Tish has friends who have jumped in to assist now and then is because that's what friends do. Moreover, after four years of a daily blog of this quality - and have you any idea whatsoever of the work and dedication involved? - what Tish is doing, finishing a book - a "real" book that will no doubt delight all of us and countless others - a few months of writer friends lending a hand is a very very small thing.

I am proud to be a reader of this blog. I am proud to call Tish a friend. I am thrilled for her that she will soon be done this monumental undertaking and considerable achievement - the sort of thing that writers dream of and that, no doubt, has taken something of a backseat at least in part due to her dedication to this site.

Little interest?

That this site is what made her book deal possible?

She is a lifelong journalist, a career writer, a model to those of us who haven't but a fraction of her talent and discipline.

If it sounds like I'm lecturing - I am. If it sounds like I would ever want to chase you away from any site, I am not. Not at all. Only trying to impress on you that there is an extraordinary amount of work that goes into this process, and the reader sees only the tip of the iceberg.

And I will say again, if Tish has splendid friends, it is because she is, herself, a splendid woman.

Mauve. Possibly the only color that I had hoped would never make a comeback. Except maybe peach.

Tish Jett said...

Oh, D.W., I have tears in my eyes.

You are indeed a wonderful, wonderful friend, and it's not the first time I've told you that -- here and in person.

I do regret that anyone could feel I've lost interest in my beloved blog and the extraordinary friends I've made through it -- including those I've yet to "meet" in real time.

It's interesting that perhaps those who don't know me beyond this venue might think that my life is without complications other than looming deadlines for my book and the daily chores of the quotidian. It is not, but I will never go down that road on this public forum.

I do regret that some of you may feel I've let you down or that I've lost the passion. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Right now I'm working on a dream.

This blog is one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I am so grateful that many of you return regularly.

Je vous embrasse,
