I had you at the title, right? So, tell me…….have you read it? Was it all that we’ve heard it to be? Wait! What’s that? You don’t have the foggiest idea what I am referring to? Come on now……….unless you’ve been propped up on your couch in a Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream coma for the past 3-weeks you must know what I’m talking about………. E L James, erotically entertaining new book, Fifty Shades of Grey. I haven’t read it……..yet! But the title and text was the inspiration for this saucy style.
Style Tip :: Think outside the box. I layered this grey and cream graphic blouse over a grey dress with a high rosette trimmed neckline. The neckline looked too constricting so I wore the dress backwards and unbuttoned, creating a slight V-neck.
In keeping with the grey theme, I chose to accessorize with a silver toned clutch, belt and jewels.
Style Tip :: Create an hourglass shape by defining the smallest part of your mid-section. This belt is perfect……..stretchy, shiny and full of fab scale-like texture. It was worn by my grandma in the 70’s and 80’s and recently given to me.
Style Tip :: Prints add interest. Pair larger prints, like the one on my blouse, with smaller ones, like snake-skin shoes.
