shades of gray


fur coat & clutch: thrifted, dress & ankle boots: Asos, necklace: ma's jewelry box
For some reason I was completely over the whole maxi dress this past summer and the few I own hung in my closet the whole season without notice. My attitude quickly changed after seeing this post on Brook&Lyn a while back. Immediately sought after a similar one in my price range and lucked up in early December on Asos... have worn it at least three times since. Sooo comfortable and easy. Asos is such a great site...and that's all I have to say about that.
Two posts within a week, I'm back on a roll haha. Most definitely hope to get one more in by Tuesday in order to show my latest vintage find, a $20 white rabbit fur coat. (Note: Would never consider buying anything made of new fur, only secondhand. This is why no matter how bad I wanted them, the BCBG Mendel PONYHAIR boot-wedges had to stay at the store.)
No more color related post titles for a while...promise.
My dear friend of years, Ross, just started a new blog of his interior designs, check it out here!

some things captured over the weekend that just so happen to be gray...
A wild crane hung out by our pond looking for lunch..I've seen white ones as well during the summer

You look absolutely stunning in this shoot! I know, normally you look stunning but there is something especially amazing about this shoot: the scenery, the the muted color scheme accented by earth tones -- everything just works so well.
