Feeling Gray (Again)

Gwyneth with a gray Alexander Wang "Emile" bag

I had lunch at Bergdorf Goodman with my good friend, the talented and superchic designer Elyn Kim.  Her Airess collection is a staple in my wardrobe -- I live in the soft silk tanks for day and night, love her ethereal blouses and always feel polished in her tailored separates. She also makes striking, unique jewelry.  She is a very fashionable working mom with amazing taste.  While browsing Bergdorf's, she showed me a purchase she was considering -- a gorgeous, gorgeous Celine envelope clutch/bag in pale gray with petal pink lining. I had crazy bag envy.  And it reenforced my current love of everything gray -- especially accessories.

I've been carrying a gray Chloe clutch a lot lately (thanks to my sister).  I love that it is not black -- it's more neutral, a tad more subtle and seems a bit cooler.  For my next big bag buy, I was thinking of going for a tote in  a pinky-nude shade but now I am back to considering gray....  and I am loving these Alexander Wang bags with the rose-gold hardware.

Shades of gray? Or pinky pale? Decisions, decisions...

Which basic shade do you think has the most longevity and versatility?


  1. Thanks, Jenny!! The Emile tote in dove grey looks so chic with the rose gold, my fave metal. The Darcy in Latte looks yummy too if you want less structure.

  2. Definitely the grey in either style...I love the more unstructured but Gwyneth looks so stylish carrying the other one.
