I’ve been trying to get away from buying so much black. For so many of us it’s a go to color and I have been trying to break the cycle.
Last night I went thrifting before my Girls Night Out. at Olive Oils and More in Edwardsville. I hit Goodwill in Glen Carbon before heading over to a pairings event.
Anyway I found three skirts and a sweater. I’m wearing one of my new finds today.
I paired the NWT $3 gray print find with a purple ruffled top, gray boots and gray belt. I accessorized with gray pearl, gray floral pin and a silver bracelet.
This skirt was one of two gray ones I found. The other is a solid A-line, which I also purchased for $3. I’m excited because I plan wear it as a neutral.
Even though I’m trying to get away from black I couldn’t pass up the black velvet Isaac Mizrahi skirt. It’s perfect for the holidays and I plan to pair it with a with top and pearls.
Gray is one of those colors that if you don’t wear it it with the right thing it can appear dowdy. Adding a splash of color really brightens the look.
I learned during the pairings class how to put together different flavors of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and balsamic vinegars. I highly suggest this class to anyone who enjoys cooking, or to novices just starting to learn.
I think cooking and fashion are similar. So often when you put things together something unique and great comes out. You may not think the look, or flavor, will work but it does. Gray is one of those colors that when paired just right looks better than simply wearing a monochromatic tone. I mean no one wants to eat gray food, so our style should be reflective of that too. Adding color is the same as adding spice. It gives flavor to our fashion.
