I love this look! The one in the blog linked to at the top of this post.

I want to dress like this a lot, not just one outfit; I want my wardrobe to be able to support multiple combos in the tones in the second picture here.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what I need to support that.
 Do I need the whole Vivienne file capsule? I kinda don't think so, but I'm having trouble figuring out what pieces I do need.
 I don't think every single item has to go with everything else, but how do I figure out how many do need to work together? I like wearing pink with this raspberry sweater and other berry colors. Purple mixes with some berry colors well too, but purple and pink are pretty far apart.

The sweater in the first photo is the color I want to be central to this whole scheme (but not everything should be the same color). The first 5 finds are things I'm considering. I'm told the Express pants are the berry color I'm looking for, (although that isn't so clear on my monitor). The rise on them is about 8", which makes me really hesitant. The rest of the finds are already in my closet. The skinnies are pale pink, roughly the color of the vest.

p.s. I wanted to put this in the "Ask Angie" category, to get her advice as well as forum members', but now that I've typed it and added all the finds & photos, I see I would've had to start a different place. Angie, I hope you see this and reply! And everyone else who has advice, please comment too!
