Black + Blue

For some reason, wearing black and navy together makes one feel very French, n'est-ce pas?  Really, I think that particular combination makes both (neutral, sometimes boring) colors more interesting. They're both integral to my wardrobe palette. These pants (a result of the lazy DIY, if you recall) are so cool and breezy--perfect for the hot and humid weather we've been having.

Bad logo!"][/caption] Look at number 5. Now look away quickly, then look again. Yep. Chalk it up to my typographic tendencies, but I've noticed that many solopreneurs and small business owners take one of two paths: Scenario 1: They get excited about their products and/or services and try to fit information about everything they ...
