A few weeks back, I got this inquiry from lovely reader msmeta:
My question is about livening up a basic black wardrobe. I have a lot of really nice, classic pieces — sweaters, pants, jackets, leather and even a couple of dresses — that I enjoy wearing and that make me feel comfortable and even chic. But I know I’m playing it much too safe with accessories: basic silver or gold hoop earrings and necklaces, and some fairly conservative scarves. How can I get out of my rut without calling too much attention to my middle-aged self?

Gorgeous reader Abi had this request:
I’d love it if you could explain colour for me – how do I know what colours suit me, what goes, what clashes, etc.? I know other people have written articles about this, but they’re complicated and confusing. No one just seems to break it down in a way that works.
Like this from Gala Darling. It gives me 6 possible categories and I can’t be all of them. Or this from Academic Chic. It’s way too complicated and theoretical.

Lovely Dana e-mailed me this request:
I love your post on “How to Dress Joyously.” Similarly, you could do a post on specific prints, styles, colors, or color combinations that lift your spirits.
Woo! Now here’s a question I’m tickled to tackle. As you’ve heard me say approximately 78 gazillion times, I believe that how we choose to dress can impact how we feel. The colors, textures, prints, and patterns we put on our bodies travel with us all day, so why not pick something that makes you smile whenever you glance into a mirror? Here are some of my personal spirit-lifting clothes, colors, and accessories.
