Style-Delights: 50 Shades Of Grey

August 7, 2012

50 Shades Of Grey

The color of sadness and also of sophistication, the color that is beautiful and melancholy, clear and murky all at the same time - the color grey. It is one of those day-to-night-year-round-wearable colors that work with most fabrics. I love the combination of grey and neon and grey and white. And of course sparkly grey! Here are some of my favorite grey pieces. (BTW, grey and gray are both correct spellings for this color!)

1. Montage Printed Dress - Romwe.com
 2. Embellished cuff blouse - Wallis Fashion
 3. Colorblock sandal - Alexander Wang via Barneys
4. Grey belted dress - Modcloth
5. Foil crosses tunic - Topshop
6. Cross Sticth Pillow - Via NeedleNosey on Etsy
7. One piece swimsuit - Seventh Wonderland via The Outnet
8.Brazilian Agate ring - Endless
9. Lizard skin cuff - Amazon
10. Ankle strap flat sandals - Andrea Morelli via yoox.com
11. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polsih - Maybelline

On a different note,  E L James made the 'Grey' famous in her 'romance' novel (although judging by the reviews - it may or may not be erotica!) Have you guys read it? Would read it? Pinterest is buzzing with all kind of 50 shades of grey images - from the hunky guys who can play Mr Grey (Hello Michael Fassbender) to the hilarious quotes a (Keep calm and laters baby!) I leave you with this funny clip where Ellen DeGeneres is reading some the the steamy scenes from 50 Shades Of Grey. (You are welcome!)

Full Disclosure; I am not buying the book, although I am patron no 680 out of the 1643 people on the waiting list on my local library! That is because I suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out)! I mean, sometimes we do things because if we didn't we may be missing out on something!! That is the discussion for some other day!

For daily dose of style delights (and to know If I finally read 50 Shades of Grey) connect with me on -

  3. Great description of the colour. I haven't read the book, I have heard it is very poor writing and extremely pornographic!

  7. Such a clever post - you really aren't missing out on anything. It's the most awfully written book I've ever read -_- !!

  11. I like, grey, especially with pink and yellow, but I'm not entirely sure it'll go with my skin color :-(

  12. I've read the trilogy in just a week! The story is good, it IS erotica but what I loved about it are the flirting scenes (if you must call it). :)

  13. Gray is a hard color to pull off. Even as a neutral it doesn't quite go with as many things as black, white, khaki, or even oxford cloth blue...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Gray Is a color that is convininetly missing from my wardrobe just because it's so SAD! I have read 50 shades of grey, it is Erotica... you probably wanna purchase your own copy though :)

  18. Love your selection of gray outfits. I do not have too many gray outfits though. Sometimes, teaming a bright top with gray pants or vice versa looks great ! Gray is a very soothing color I feel.
    have a nice day !

  30. I can safely say that I have not read the book and I don't plan on it.

    I do love grey though, as I've always been a fan of chic heather grey top. Loving the Topshop tunic, the colorblock sandals and the lizard skin cuff!
