Color Coordination

Mary has mastered the art of color coordination. Each outfit she puts on is a masterpiece full of wonderful accessories and beautiful,harmonious colors and textures. A while back I asked Mary her opinion on dressing age appropriate and she answered," I think that saying women can’t wear color at a certain age says step back and die. Most important is to develop a sense of objectivity. I go by an instant reaction--if it's negative that I don’t do it. Obviously you shouldn’t wear super short skirts. You don’t want to look like a crazy old lady.In short avoid those Baby Jane moments."

While I know "matchy-matchy" is no longer the look to strive for in fashion, I do love color coordination. I see from these photos that Mary is an expert at this art.

Her modern shoe choices make me smile! :) I love her bag she's wearing with the lepord coat. I'd like to know if it's available somewhere?

I love Mary's style,and she always looks so modern and impeccably coordinated. That leopard coat is gorgeous! Your font sizes are still wonky in this post; if no one else has said anything, maybe it's just my computer :)
Happy Hanukkah, and Merry Christmas!

I so want to be Mary when I grow up! What beautiful tones of saturated and muted colors--and not at all campy or overdone. Pure genius! I look forward to these posts!
