The girl in the grey sweater... Giovanna Battaglia, fashion editor L'Uomo Vogue. Now this is a very stylish woman on any given day, but I've especially loved seeing her wear her grey turtle neck sweater again and again, with stunning looks every time! I imagine it's cashmere and just really soft and comfortable and warm and yummy. :-) She clearly enjoys wearing it. Such a great example of wearing signature or eye catching pieces with loved and cherished staples!

Here's the look that Giovanna's grey sweater extravaganza inspired for me. I wore this yesterday.

I suppose I was inspired by the color pallet as well. I love pairing grey with bright colors. Black, I think, can make brights look cheap. The wrong combination of black and yellow can easily look a bit "bumble bee" and black with orange always makes me think of a supermarket "SALE" sign. Grey forms the perfect background for colorful pieces to pop out and shine. I'm also loving my new snake print flats! I LOVE animal prints! I'll do a post on that soon, I think.

In the mean time I leave you with... PERFECTION:

They're by Maison Martin Margiela and available at Browns. How wonderful are these lovelies?! My heart skipped a beat when I first saw these boots. This is genius in design AND execution! Here is Rihanna out and about in her patent leather pair.
