Janice's picks for January are up. I went through the Hermes scarves again yesterday and found that some of them I'd chosen earlier weren't on the site anymore, so I re-did my guess list. I nailed one -- the scarf for the Brown wardrobe -- and I had two other scarves sort of correct, although I picked the wrong colorway. I'd picked a scarf for a tan neutral and she used a different colorway of that scarf and switched Khaki for tan this year. I had picked a different colorway of the Act III scarf for Gray (So glad she picked one of those! Such a fun scarf!). I ALMOST picked the scarf she chose for Black, but ultimately picked a different one with a larger color range.
That was fun.
So. Now, how shall I interpret her choices for the first outfit of the year?
She has a pair of basic pants from the anchor color from each wardrobe; all but one has a white short sleeved t shirt...4 out of 5 are the same shirt. The 5th one is a little dressier...and the last T is the same shirt as the 4 white ones but in black. The cardigans are all one of the primary accent colors...again, except for that 6th wardrobe, where the cardigan is the anchor color. But I think that sixth one is going to be a bit of a oddball all year, since the scarf for that wardrobe IS all accent colors.
Loafers and earrings in the accent.
So...here's my assignment for the first month:
Black pants, a white T and a royal blue cardigan.
White T shirts are...difficult...because it is so doggone hard to find white knit fabric that is not nearly transparent. I've been buying white knits for years, trying to get something suitable. I think I have one or two pieces that should be safe.
The black and the royal are ready to hand.
Here we go!
