Gloomy Gray

20 Dec

Happy Thursday Jewels,

One reason I love gloomy gray weather is because I can wear a lot of my favorite accessories such as scarfs, tights, boots, etc…

I had this sweater dress for many years and I love how simple it is because I can accessorize it differently giving it a new look, sometimes I wear it from front to back like I did here.

When Grey

14 May

When it is grey out.

Wear flowers in your hair.

Walk your dog with her brightest sweater.

Wear your clothes from front to back.

Watch for bird blessings.

And pat yourself on the back because you know it is going to be alright.


Grey cashmere sweater dress: bebe, (now that I am in my mid 30s I stopped buying from bebe, but when I found out they started selling cashmere I was in there in no time) bracelet grace, and my best accessory Mocha my dog, (my husband is going to kill me for referring to her as an accessory, but she literally gets all the attention).

Purse: Coach, and flower in my hair J.Crew which I occasionally wear on my blazers. I love accessories that serve multiple purposes.

A Robin watching over her chicks greeted us this morning. One thing I learned from our Dad was to take time to smell the roses, and in his case it is the birds, he loves to bird watch. He and mom came out to visit me here in the MI from California a while back and I loved how much he appreciated the birds which I appreciated from him, thank you Dad and thank you God for reminding me that you are watching over me and for Mocha not going after her! We would like for her to remain our neighbor for a couple of days.


Ankles Booties: Coach, I love these, but “Coach I wish you wouldn’t manufacture these with leather on the heels, and would have used wood instead, I have damaged several of your boots because of the leather on the heels.”

And necklace from our upcoming line: Rose Pedals

Why They Call Grey The New Black

1 May


Grey is seductive, sophisticated, and professional, it doesn’t stand out, but yet does; it comes in different shades (unlike black) that look great when worn together.

Cashmere sweater dress: bebe. In the fall I like to wear it with a solid mustard yellow scarf, and in the winter a solid rosy lavender scarf, (and of course my Lollipop red wool coat) but I did without a scarf today because I really wanted to put more emphasis on my essentjewels bling, from our new line: ‘iridescent’ earrings.

I hope the same rule does not apply to wearing cashmere in the spring as does not wearing white after Labor Day because I am feeling guilty about wearing cashmere in the spring. I have to confess I did wear my white skinny jeans this past winter a couple of times, hey Jackie O. did it, anyway, it is still cold here in the MI).

Feather light trench coat perfect for spring, (only my friends like to call it the cape) by Xiao yan oGin (and ladies it is made in the U.S.A.) I will take cape as it does make feel me fierce, feminine, and fantastic! I would say those are superhero characteristics. J.Crew charcoal grey tights, (little did I know that I would be pulling the tights out again) Coach ankle booties and Coach bag.

And all I needed was a pop-out nail polish by essie: lollipop.

And there you have it my friends, why they call the grey the new black.
