There is More to Life Than Black

There is more to life then basic black.....there is also grey! Grey is my favorite color, is that weird? I don't know anyone else that says Grey is their actual favorite. Purple seems to the norm, but let me make a case for the grey.
It matches everything, much like black.
It looks good on everybody, young and old.
And, you can wear it in at least 3 of the 4 seasons.
Let me show you so fabulous greys:Ladies of Leisure: http://www.ladiesofleisure.etsy.com/Italian Postcards: www.italianpostcards.etsy.com

Inspiration: Blondie

A sexy mix of 70's disco, 80's punk, a dash of rock & roll, and a hint of new wave, Debbie Harry continues to be a style icon of the past, present, and future.

So many blondie-esque gems can be found on the vintage pages. Check out a few of my favorites.

What I Scored

I fell in LOVE with this gold braided Chanel necklace found online at Bag, Borrow, or Steel. Now they say everything in fashion always comes back in style eventually. Which means if its a trend now, it might be found in vintage. Therefore I was over the moon when I found this scarily similar score at Purple Daisy Jewelry complete with matching bracelet. http://www.purpledaisyjewelry.etsy.com/
That's what I scored, How about you?

All The Rage: Oxfords

It's old news that OXFORDS are four seasons footwear. They are so versatile, can be dressed up or dressed down, worn by men and women, can be preppy or avaunt guard. Needless to say they are here to stay. Here are some of my favorite finds in neutrals for spring and summer.Italian Postcards: http://www.italianpostcards.etsy.com/
