As above. I want to wear black and block jewel colours. Please don't let her say pastels and frilly

Hurray! I am a jewel winter! And a romantic natural! Watch me as I stride on stage in my black thigh boots and dramatic cape!

*TravelinColour" yes, it was. I soooo wanted to be the equivalent of winter. I bloody knew I'd be flipping Autumn though. I did get black though so not all bad. <tries not to think of lovely new jacket in pastel shade that I now know isn't my colour>

Belle - can you be Autumn and have black? I liked the blue autumn colours...

CMB give black to all those who rate as 'deep'.
<sits on hands>

Wow bert great news! <gazes with childlike awe at theatrical sweeping> (I'm a full gamine, which will probably make no sense to anyone else on the thread).

I think I'm Ingenue in that HoC definition thingy but can't remember why...

Seem now I'm feeling ungrateful and want HoC analysis. Tsk.

Full gamine = Audrey Hepburn-esque? Slim cropped trousers and Peter Pan collars?

I am a Sultry Winter Romantic Classic. Very happy with that.

I hate summer clothes. Love this time of year and the party season.

There's a HoC winter thread around here someplace ...

I feel vindicated in my gothness

:-) One of the consultants I trained with is a Winter RN. Lovely leather coats, brocade, corsets and incredible shoes.

LonelyGoatherd is a newly diagnosed RC, I will point her in your direction.

And yes, Gamine = quirky, neat, boyish.

This is me doing full Gamine in a work environment

And as that's a link to my FB page, understand if someone wants to report it. Just wanted to show the picture.
