I’ll take one in green, too!

Wow.  This is a guy who is NOT afraid to combine color and patterns!  Also, I’m pretty sure his coat and waistcoat are trimmed with fringe, which is pretty incredible.

Proof that basic black doesn’t have to be boring!  My favorite is actually the little tiara on the bottom right!

This isn’t a fashion plate, obviously, but I was so struck by the women in the image that I couldn’t resist posting here.

How gorgeous is this outfit?  I’m always a big fan of white and blue, and I love the way she’s use the accesories to coordinate with the gown!
