  1. Hello Janet:
    What a wonderful personal tribute to Ralph Lauren.

    You look so stylish in each of these poses, relaxed and confident and very clearly wearing your clothes with such ease. We should never be able to carry this off as you can, for the most part hating to be photographed.

  2. You should be interviewing him, he would love your outfits!
    I am going to try to watch Oprah today in honor of you, oh and of Ralph of course.

  3. You are TOO cute. You should be one of his models (on the payroll I mean). Also, LOVE that big vintage turquoise bracelet. What a statement piece!

  4. Which outfit will you wear for the interview? I'd go with the jeans and chambray shirt.

  5. My favorite two pieces are the white workshirt and your red boots, which I covet. No TV in my house -- you have to post your thoughts on the interview...

  7. Janet,

    You look very comfortable in Ralph Lauren...and you are so adorable!

    I understand that you are a fan of RL...but what about Jack White?

    I heard on the CBC that Jack will be linking up with The Kinks for a special project sometime soon!

    Enjoy Oprah!

  10. Hi Janet,

    You look simply great in your Ralph Lauren outfits! They make you look very classy. You know....he should sponsor you. You are such a great fan! LOVE those red boots too.

    Happy day & lieve groet,

  11. If Ralph only knew! He'd cherish the picture of you in your red boots.

  12. Ahh, I'm sad I have to miss that interview. The man is a genius! I love all your outfits, but those boots are the best.

  13. Mind if you ask where you got your penny loafers? I have a pair from Cole Haan that I love but they just make their shoes too narrow sometimes and I'm finding their not very comfortable. Yours look a little wider and like they might be more comfortable. Thanks. - Mary

  16. Ralph Lauren suits you VERY well! That picture with the white pants and denim shirt could have been pulled straight from one of their ads. Beautiful!

  17. Is that a Ralph Lauren tweed jacket I spy? How perfect! I wore a couple of RL pieces on the tweed ride. Such classic pieces, he makes. You look smashing! (Love the oxfords too, btw.)

  18. Ralph should know about you! :)

  20. Love Ralph!! And you do it well!!
    I will be watching....today.....
    and again tonight!!!

    Your turquoise is stunning..............

  21. Great post, and I love your turquoise too. If Ralph had you for a model to show how to wear his clothes he would be lucky. I can't wait for that O show to get here, maybe in a few months. I love the way Ralph is such a dreamer of the ideal lifestyle, from his big Ralph Lauren book which I have seen in photos of your living room. All your outfit photos are adorable and tres, tres chic and tres, tres Ralph.

  22. Love the toenails & boots........!

  25. Janet,

    You always look so beautiful. You know how many times I've commented on your herringbone jacket...well, the other day I went with my husband to use a gift certificate he received for a custom made shirt. I was looking through books of fabrics and found a beautiful (RL) one. I brought up the photo of you on my ipad (I think it was the one with the plaid shirt/apple picking post) anyway...he apparently does not like to make clothes for women...but he's thinking about it. I'm a little on the tall side and would rather have one jacket that fits perfectly than 20 that do not fit well. I love how you wear this with jeans or with all black. You have a way of making it look like the perfect piece in your wardrobe. So if this custom shirt guy won't make it, I may have to explore other options.

    I hope Ralph sees your post today!

  29. Dear Lady Janet,
    You must have been a ballerina growing up because your posture is so perfect and natural. You make being 50+ so so good. I sometimes get beside myself, as I'm sure we all have over the mutton issue, but you put it into perspective. Classic looks so fresh! Thank you each and every day for your inspiration...I have so much appreciation for the Gardener's Cottage. Ralph Lauren, hear me now >>>>> Janet's your girl.

  30. Hi Janet,
    My favorite park for young children is Holmby Park. Technically it isn't in Beverly Hills, but it is right off of Wilshire Boulevard, a block from BH. This is the part that I used to take my children to when they were young. There is usually plenty of parking.


    Here is the google link to the address:

    http://maps.google.com/maps/place?um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=holmby+park&fb=1&gl=us&hq=holmby+park&hnear=0x80c2c75ddc27da13:0xe22fdf6f254608f4,Los+Angeles,+CA&cid=4883100524255734539

    Also, look at the photos on Google images.

    Another idea. Directly north of Santa Monica Boulevard in the main part of Beverly Hills, literally 2 blocks from my office on Rodeo Drive, there is a open park space that runs for blocks. It isn't as charming as Holmby Park, but it is convenient.

    I hope that this helps.

    Also...I love the RL looks and the turquoise jewelry.

  31. I noticed the huge geranium growing by the side of your house. I have never seen one that large before. What did you do to make it grow so large? Does it stay in the ground all year? That won't work here in Kansas City if that is the answer. Please tell me!

  32. Great outfits! I especially like the 2nd outfit and I love the red piggy toes!

  33. That's the way .uh huh.uh huh, I like it, uh huh, uh, huh.

    We could be sisters:) Twisted sisters.

  38. I love that tweed jacket, I'd like to copy that look for the autumn!
    Have you worked out your reunion outfit?
    I think my computer must be too old, I can't see the video but I'm glad it worked

  39. Please tell me that "Ralph" knows just how much you love him. I think he needs you as his muse! You must write him a letter....
