    Great outfits! I love your grey collarless leather jacket. It is fab. Also like the short black boots a lot. 

    I prefer neutrals too. They are not drab! I find them more chic than lots of bright colour. (Not that I hate colour; I just prefer small accents of colour, generally speaking).

    The T- shirts you make are always so interesting and stylish. The neutrals are really working for you. I especially love the ponte pants/long cardigan look on you-so modern and cool.

    Good thing moody and dark neutrals love you back, girlfriend. Loving #1, #4, #6 and #9. You look SO cuddly in #6. Beautifully texture-rich.

    I love your neutrals - YLF . #1, #3 & #4 are my favourites :)

    You look terrific - another vote for #1 and #4.

    Can I have the T shirts in #1 and #4? You don't want them any more, do you? And the green trench too?

    High five, Aziraphale!
    Sharon and Peri, thanks for the t-shirt compliments. And Peri, you are a riot.
    Angie, thanks--I think I picked up a little subtle whiff of your Kenzo Flower. Hugs back!
    Caro and Shevia, thank you!

    HAH. I hope that's a good thing. xo

    Not at all drab, because I think you have pattern and forward thinking silhouettes. And also texture.

    But omg! I just got that Free people sweater. At NAS, a sales girl got me to try it on, and it looked cute, but I wasn't shopping for cardigans. And it felt a little scratchy to me. But there I was this weekend at the other end of the season, tried it on again, and was like yes, I need this for *country punk.* Lol. (Yes, I'm pretty much delusional.)

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    Angie, yes, I meant it in a good way!

    Yay, we're sweater twins, Rachylou! I agree you need the fuzzy cardigan. It will be great on you.

    The dark neutral are definitely loving you back Sharan. What great looks! That long cardi is fab in #1 and I love all the wonderful tees that you make.
