Grayscale

"the sky is grey, the sand is grey, and the ocean is grey. i feel right athome in this stunning monochrome, alone in my way. i smoke and i drink andevery time i blink i have a tiny dream. but as bad as i am i'm proud of thefact that i'm worse than i seem. what kind of paradise am i looking for? i'vegot everything i want and still i want more. maybe some tiny shiny thing willwash up on the shore." - "Grey" sung by Ani Difranco

These lyrics caught my eye as they reflect what my outfit feels like... maybe more of the first part. I initially paired this with aqua opaque tights... but they looked too loud... and though I am a color-loving person...I felt like toning it down some more.

(Ok pardon the silly face... what's up with all these silly faces??) So I ditched the tights... and added a cropped grey jacket to cover up a bit....

(Though this dress can pretty well pass-up for a cute summery dress with it's denim detail.)



To match my new peep-toes (that slightly hurt).



Dress: Bazaar find
Cropped Jacket: Bayo
Peep-toes: Local Mall find (dirt cheap)!

I feel like I've missed some of your blog posts. That print is so Tropical, fun and chic. I never would have thought to add in some gray accents. Remarkable idea. I LOVE YOUR SHOES- once again. :)

To answer your question- it was so very hard to wait and see the SATC movie on DVD (after I watched the entire series on DVD first, I have seen all of it before, but I wanted a "refresher course" just before the film!) Saying I loved it, doesn't speak highly enough of what I thought. It's one of those movies I could see again and again and again!!!
