Vendredi en couleur: Camel for Camille

Not the spitting kind, the color-of-the-season kind. C. rightly requested Camel to cover this week as my comeback Vendredi en couleur. Whether tapered trousers, classic trenches, or smart oxfords, I'm happy to be discussing this must have for fall. The color, obviously named so from the animal, has always been a timeless neutral, though this year it has gained the spotlight on runways, in basics, and with fashionites worldwide. Below I've found some stunning coats, blazers, boots, and bags that are absolutely to die for. When I imagine Camel clothing, I always link to the nonconformist, powerful yet beautiful styles of Katharine Hepburn. Dahling, this color is simply perfect when your classic, independent and intelligent side craves for a close up.

Please excuse my absence. It was only yesterday I was packing my life up in Paris, moving back stateside to Princeton for a few weeks, and then all the way south to Baton Rouge. How did the end of July become mid-September? A vortex has sucked me up and kept me spinning for weeks now, but with the start of Fashion Week, I decided it's just irresponsible for me not to be blogging.
Every year, Fashion Week seems to come at the worst time, so I have barely been following. Thank goodness for Twitter where I can get a tidbit here and there, especially with their #nyfw site. With my lack of Spring 2011 fashion knowledge, I'm using this weekend to catch up.
Loyal readers, get ready for....

  • Hot Fall advice (and no, I am not saying that to be cheesy, I really mean HOT. Baton Rouge is rather steamy.) on what to wear when you're craving autumn apparel, yet have to dress for 90+℉ and 100% humidity.
  • My views and favorites from the Fashion Weeks.
  • An update on my DIY thrifted dress I have finally finished altering. Including a review on a sweet little sewing spot in Paris near République!
With that said, I am pleased to tell you that I am finally bringing Vendredi en couleur back. I would love suggestions for this week's color!

Well faithful followers thanks for holding your breath and staying with me.
Don't change that channel.

xx, Q.
