Less Is More!

Less Is More - philosophy is embedded in the DNA of Calvin Klein, Jil Sander, Narciso Rodriguez, and Prada, and all obliged for Fall with beautiful pared-down and precise visions. But this season, even fanciful types felt the urge to clean house. Stefano Pilati swapped his romantic notions for stark, architectural tailoring at Yves Saint Laurent, while Alber Elbaz spun plain into exquisitely pretty at Lanvin. Fall's new black? Black.

I'm always kind of dreading the moment when this comes back in style. I can't help but love embellishments, and minimalism done "right" requires clothing that's impeccably tailored, i.e. expensive.

I like a bit of minimalism in my wardrobe--it's always classic and can easily be updated!

Absolutely...I love'em all! Kisses.

this is TOO easy to do. No thought goes into minimalism. Very low risk. "Easy Route" if you will...

Non imaginative people dress simple.

Woo hoo for less is more! I am drawn to solid colors and don't often wear patterns. Many see that as boring, but I'd like to think classic hehe =)

I think there's a place for this, but I also love lots of colors.
