Dame au Chapeau by Gontcharova, Revisited for Autumn 2018 - Ah, the inadvertently conspicuous college professor… She made a short trip (which we never discussed…) back in January, and then to another symposium in April. Her professional qualifications get her invited to all sorts of places to speak to classes – in July she got out of town for a couple of days to hang out with summer-school students! This Invitation is Different… Really different. Negotiating the final details under which sh...

Flowers in a Crystal Vase by Manet, Revisited for Autumn 2018 - Our heroine is a soil conservation engineer. Lots of people don’t quite understand what she does…  but she gets to go to conferences with others who do what she does, and that helps! She’s so well regarded in her profession that she’s often invited to speak to groups of students, which she loves… And when one of her peers made an amazing discovery, she was the first person they called to share the work and the excitement. Okay,...

Blue by Kinuko Imai Hoffman, Revisited for Autumn 2018 - Our heroine is an educational coordinator, who spends a great deal of her time visiting schools… Back in January, right after the holiday break, she was bundled up and spending a couple of days in a classroom with some issues… And then back to check on them in April! Even though there were no classrooms to visit during the summer, she continued to try to understand the students in her area by attending their favorite music festival. A...

Study in Verticals by Frantisek Kupka, Revisited for Autumn 2018 - She’s a mediator. A negotiator, but her position in any discussion is in the middle, trying to bring the 2 conflicting sides closer together. She loves her work, even when she has lengthy, complicated projects! Her personal life doesn’t suffer because of her work, though – she’s been to the beach back in the spring, and she and her spouse make the time to do some excellent dining, too. Her packing is always spot-on, because ...

Shallow Deep by Wassily Kandinsky Revisited for Autumn 2018 - Remember this heroine – the intrepid teacher who took 20 of her 6th grade students to New York City for a few days? She went back to NYC by herself in the spring (and spent quite a bit of time in The Met Shop…) During the summer she applied for, and was interviewed for, a position that would help organize field trips for students all over the state… Her style inspiration is a whimsical, colorful painting: So With Her New Job… of ...

Fonds Marins by Lee Ungno Revisited for Autumn 2018 - Our retired heroine likes wearing black with pastels – she knows that it makes her iconoclastic, and she loves that! Back in January she took a long weekend trip for which she packed linen shirts, lots of scarves and lots of bracelets. In the spring she took a road trip – she packed a variety of tee shirts that she loved… And during the summer she was invited to a family wedding – her favorite colors worked out just fine (with a little a...

L’Oiseau Forestier by Max Ernst Revisited for Autumn 2018 - Our negotiator heroine was made head of her project back in January, which drove her co-workers absolutely crazy! It didn’t get any better when she was chosen to present at the corporate overnight retreat – not that she cared. One of the reasons that she gets these kinds of accolades is because she’s good at what she does, and that she’s very flexible – she recently attended a function with a client and their union, at which absolu...

Trojan Gates by Helen Frankenthaler – Revisiting for Autumn 2018 - Our heroine is a translator! She won an award back in the early part of the year, after which she was chosen to translate the autobiography of a very important and elegant Frenchman… Her new gig required her to travel to Paris to meet with the author and to finalize some legal paperwork. She’s been hard at work ever since, and she finds this the easier assignment she’s ever had; she understand the author’s writing on so many...

Adding Accessories to a Grey and Pink Perfect 10 Travel Wardrobe - Last week I left you with a (what I thought was) lovely wardrobe, but it didn’t have any accessories! Well, I was trying to share a new idea about how to choose what to pack, so I didn’t want to throw too much out there at one time… So let’s accessorize now! First, let’s remind ourselves of the clothing that we had in this 13-piece (Perfect-10 to pack) wardrobe: v-neck sweater – Dreamers by Debut; cardigan – BP.; blazer – Un...

Build a Capsule Wardrobe in 12 Months, 12 Outfits – October 2018 - Yes, I’m still working on my laptop, from Florida. These images might be particularly messy, because there’s so much going on here! Let me know and I’ll mend anything that’s very horrible. Love, Janice It’s the most fun day of the month, here at The Vivienne Files! Because I’m working on a smaller-than-normal computer monitor, I decided that I was going to make some deliberate wardrobe choices for our heroines, this month. I...
