@Foxxee  I'd love to see a tee under the jacket in #7 that matches the purse, which looks more caramel or butterscotch than camel to me...great idea.  White or black is so...predictable.  A color similar to the purse would bring that color out more and give the outfit more...depth?  (I'm babbling hahaha.)

 

Foxxee and @KatCat1 ... yeah, those spaceman boots!  I'm not a professional stylist...nor do I play one on the forums...but those boots would only look good with a huge hooded parka (white with cream colored fur trim, of course) on an expedition to the Arctic Circle.

 

I'm jealous if you can wear that color in #4, @Love my grandkids and @DiAnne ...it's gorgeous!

 

@Andreatoo  I bought/returned a similar FP sweater in that color at the Rack a few months ago.  FP is not for me.  I have to go to an xs to deal with their voluminous/odd shapes, which, of course, throws off the proportions, so I usually don't even look at their stuff.

 

Thanks @NEvans2 and @Flatbush ...I'm glad you enjoy these threads!

 

@spiderw  I own exactly one wool winter coat (don't need coats here), so I'm living vicariously through these pics.  So glad you enjoyed the show!

 

Hi @tototwo  @ALRATIBA  and @Lisa Y  ...the workmanship on the embroidered vintage jacket is stunning...rivals anything I've ever seen from Johnny Was.

 

@amyb and DiAnne...I really liked that gold/yellow tweed jacket in #13, too...it's different...would brighten a dreary winter's day!

 

@Boehm Collecter  You might be amyb's spirit animal HA!  That jacket in #2 is a classic look.  (Just curious...do you collect flutes?)

 

Hi @shoptilyadropagain and Queen of shop!

 

Hi @wilma  ...My biggest problem with the tonal look is "white in winter."  And I don't like cream/off whites either, especially near my face.  I've tried it and just don't like it (altho I love it on others, go figure).  Have you tried tonal with another color?  I especially like using different shades of a color...and texture, too, can play a part in making the tonal look work, IMO. 

 

I think I could wear something like this with a pair of grey jeans and boots (rather than a white/cream tonal).

 

Which hat suits me

 

As always, thanks for your comments!  Hope you're having a wonderful week.

I like them all.  I love #7.  I do not like camo.  The only one (I think #6) that I do not like.  I am just anti camo.  Maybe saw my DH wear it too many years and know what it meant to him and to me, ultimately.

Hi @namealreadytaken  I like camo in small doses only.  I own one camo piece...a cashmere sweater I bought recently at the Rack...black, charcoal, light gray (I don't like any of the other camo colors).  I've surprised myself by wearing it quite a lot in the past few weeks!

@MacDUFF   I cannot imagie a camo cashmere sweater looking like the old camo. It probably just looks like a blend of good colors.  It doesn't sound like that vest that lady has on or all these pants at QVC that I tired of before they were presented.  Especially GILI

Hi @MacDUFF ... no, I do not collect flutes.   I do collect Boehm Porcelain figurines.

@MacDUFF 

I don’t think I’d wear all white in the cold weather either. I like white, but I love creams & ivories. I’ve been told they look good on me. I have a beautiful ivory dress that I’ve worn in both winter & spring. I wear it with a cardigan that is ivory with taupe abstract flowers. I've also worn tonal greys, navy, and black together.

@Boehm Collecter   Naturally, I looked up Boehm porcelain as I had (obviously!) never heard of it.  WOW! 

 

I fell right in love with the owls, but check out that egret! 

 

Loved the flowers, too.  I want the last one...gorgeous...but, OH, that pink one!  I bet they're stunning in person.  

 

I'm assuming your avatar is Boehm. 

 

I'd love to see some of yours...if you've posted any pics here already, would you provide a link...or start a new thread (notify me) or post them here?

Hi @MacDUFF .... My Dad got us interested in Boehm Porcelain back in 1976.   I have been collecting them ever since.   I have birds and flowers...and an elephant.   

 

This is an owl I bought for my husband several years ago:

These  are among  my all time favorite pieces:
