Sometimes we don’t feel like wearing all black.
We are women and we like to change our minds.
This does not mean that we don’t love and adore the LBD it simply means that there can be alternatives. It does not make us disloyal or flighty; it makes us adaptable and forward thinking.
We make fashion work for us and that is a wonderful side benefit of experience.
I am a great fan of the little grey dress.
The little grey dress is my next favourite piece after the LBD, even more than the little navy dress.
I think it is because of the hair; the whole letting my hair go grey thing. Can I just mention that for a moment?
It will only take a second because I want to show you this fabulous dress I found on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and that is the reason I am talking little grey dresses today.
Back to the hair.
It has been one year and 3months since my last colour and some days it is tough and other days are easier. Since my stay in Provence with temperatures reaching the high 30’s and an occasional muggy atmosphere, the grey hair is giving me a little grief. That’s not true, a great deal of grief. Combine that with a not so fabulous haircut before I left London and I am seriously struggling with the look.
When the grey is sleek and chic, I am right there at the forefront ready to be brave and go those extra yards. When it is frizzy and out of control, not doing what it should, it is one tough act to pull off. Just saying.
Love to know how you manage the-growing-out-grey in less than ideal hair circumstances.
More about the little grey dress.
As I was editing the little black dresses for you, I found a fabulous grey dress from Max Mara. It is the perfect shape, length and reduced dramatically. It is the kind of dress I would where everywhere and would pack for travelling. Worn with flats, heels, blazer style jacket or three quarter coat; this little grey dress is a serious bonus in the wardrobe.
