#175. GLORIOUS IN GRAY

by admin on February 24, 2011

puffer jacket from stephan cori

              a couple of spins through my usual shops to check out the winter sales have resulted in a little collection of gray outerwear.  the grayer my hair gets, the more interesting various grays seem to look.  and gray looks great with blacks, purples and reds.  the only problem is that different grays often clash with each other, as i’ve discovered to my distress after introducing a new piece to the homies in my closet. 

first there was a gray silkish jacket with patterned lining by ella moss (kate got one in olive green).  this one is long and will go with leggings.  then i spotted a slate-gray puffer jacket at stefan cori—perfect for throwing over jeans on a cold morning.  and finally a knit sweater in 2 shades of gray (pacific rim) that is good with my wool harem pants. 

i just hope gray doesn’t start being mentioned in those lists of “what’s out for 2011”.  oh well, in that case i suppose my grays, rather than fading into the background, will stand out like (no, not sore thumbs)…maybe staunch soldiers in a sea of lime-green!

sticking to my guns,

esme
