Brooklyn, YES. White and gold have magical lifting powers - especially white.
My favourites are the ones with very big jewelry.For clothes, I particularly like the large-scale floral pencil/tube skirt and the burgundy topper.
For jewelry, I find the very thick cuffs and large rings work really well on you.
Smittie, thanks! I have big bones (dinosaur bones), so chunky jewellery works well for me. I think I learned that from Trinny and Susannah.
Angie and Jussie, I am going to investigate further using gold and white as my magic ingredient. There may be hope for me as a colour mixer yet!
Bella, thanks! I am taking a much more analytical approach to my style lately (although it’s still based on what I find intuitively attractive). I am hoping that will pay dividends in the long term for wardrobe planning. With colour mixing I really need to be analytical because it doesn’t come naturally to me.
LBD, thanks! I find warm weather outfits the hardist. Our summers are long, hot and sticky. Overnight temperatures don’t drop that much. My most comfortable silhouette is loose bottoms (the shorts in the first outfit or an A-line or midi skirt) with a semi fitted knit top for structure. The top is where I’m most likely to get sticky. I try to wear only natural fibres on top. I generally carry a scarf for sun protection or in case it gets cool. See attached pic. I also have some lightweight toppers in linen and cotton. But I run so hot I find I rarely need them in summer (I tend to wear them more in Spring/Autumn).
I love the idea of a mermaid theme. Just off the top of my head, for summer, I would think:
Fitted bottom eg pencil skirt in cotton
Silk top - for that glistening, just emerged from the ocean, look
Sea colours - blues, greens, aquamarine, coral, white (pearls)
Lots of layered beaded necklaces (instead of seaweed!) much like mine in outfit 4.
Sterling, thanks for your enthusiasm as always! And yes you must go to the Met! I went 3 times on my last visit to NYC and could have spent more time there.

Love the mermaid theme! I had in my head a similar "dark peacock" theme
Suntiger, you are in my head! Dark teal is my colour for 2019. I love blue-green combinations. I’m going to go grab some peacock pics for my mood board. This is what I have so far.

*carries off that column*
You’ll have to infiltrate the Met first. I see the plot for a heist movie.
Darn-knew there was a catch
white & gold = *happy dance*
