Emporio Armani Fall 2014

Ralph Lauren
who wouldn't LOVE this ?

Ralph Lauren

to me, these looks are the quintessential fashion looks one
aspires to reach.

I seriously do not care for the mix/match (except for Dries Von Noten)
the young women seem to favor.

and, anyone who reads this column frequently already knows, jeans
are not my cup of tea.

cute, fun, OK, alright,
but still not my 1st choice at any time.
jeans with a fabulous blouse makes me think one forgot the bottom half of the outfit.
jeans with a beautiful cashmere sweater makes me think you are disrespecting your

anyway, the monochromatic looks are the ones I favor and always have.
is this an age thing?
have I lost it?

no and no

sending love and kisses for the beginning of the holiday season.

Love it and to me its ageless....I have always loved this look even when I was 22, it is classically elegant.

The pink wrap top brings warm and cozy thoughts on a cold morning. Agreed that classic and clean lines are best.

No you have not lost it! I follow a lot of the "younger look" blogs and this Fall many of them are extolling the virtues of monochrome. It seems like they have found out what some of us have known for years: monochrome is elegant, simple, easy, always flattering and now apparently "hip and modern". I think it has to do with the Fall palette this year; lots of pinks, whites and greys, as you show above really beautiful in monochrome looks. Great post!

I love this look too, so classic. Love that pink!

I'm with you - monochromatic is so chic - and especially in any shade of grey. The V&R dress is awesome. Love Armani - that pantsuit would win me over any type of jeans, particularly ripped versions which you'd never catch me in, haha!

RL's whites are OK but the pants fabric is rather thin and see-through - don't like being able to see the pockets/fly etc.

Lovely post - thanks for sharing.
