Among The Bushes Half Leafless

I love the darker palette of a fall wardrobe. Navy and maroon are two colors that just appeal to me so much; personified they aren't the extroverts dancing on a table at the party nor are they the pale wallflowers willing themselves into the background. They never tolerate small talk. Navy sounds like Lauren Bacall and maroon likes to slow dance by herself. They don't make an entrance, but for some reason once you notice them your eye will keep wandering back. Surely there are secrets in their shadowy depths; past adventures dancing in their eyes that they won't recount to you.

  2. I'm also a big fan of maroon and navy. Something strong and understated about them. Oh and imitation being the greatest form of flattery, I imitated one of your outfits here:

  12. Darker wardrobes seem very popular with the European set, which is right up your alley, anyway.

  18. Oooh I need a beret like that with the rim. Regular floppy berets are hard to wear I find.
