The Pantone Spring 2017 colors have been announced, and I've been playing with them....
Well, of course there aren't new colors here - there ARE no new colors... But Pantone has announced their colors for Spring 2017, so it's always interesting to see what in the world they've found that's interesting... It's ...

Hi Janice, I read your blog religiously. I just love it!. i would love, if you could help me make an office wardrobe (business casual). The problem I have is that I live in a tropical country, with excessive heat on the outside but cool inside with air conditioning at the office and also not have many options of stores to buy clothes. I appreciate the help very much! Tks. HG

Story
Tagline
The happiest woman alive! Working, working out, eating too much, watching rugby, and enjoying every second of it all.
Introduction
The Vivienne Files author? The former DDB Brand Capital Project Director? Maybe the person who smiles at everybody in Chicago, and gives out hugs at random? That would be me.

Vivienne was an acquaintance in Paris, years ago. I learned everything that I could from her about wardrobes, shopping, and having a distinctive personal style, and now I try to share it with you. Art, photographs, or other beautiful things are often our starting point, and we finish with beautiful minimal wardrobes of essential items spiced up with gorgeous accessories. Join me!
