Fashion Watch...grey love

Many of you know I LOVE grey. But I also have been in love with adding little bits of color to my grey outfits. I ordered this simple and inexpensive orange wrist band and it made this old watch face into something new!
As I mentioned, last week, I am an instant gratification crafter. I strung these smoky grey beads on stretchy cord and I was a happy camper. I then added some blue and made another version. Exciting ... I know.
I used to obsess about making my crafts, especially my jewelry projects, perfect. I no longer worry about achieving perfection because if I did, I would never craft and never enjoy my creations.

My love for grey includes stripes and a touch of gold. This necklace was one of my best finds ever. I have no idea, who made it but I bought it a thrift store. I imagine, it belonged to a sweet woman and now it is mine to give it new life. Now, dolls here is the profesora lesson for the day :
1. wear what you like
2. play with colors
3. create a binder with inspiration outfits from magazines.
the profesora style budget is small so I really need to force myself to work with what I've got in the sealaura vault. So... I clip outfits from magazines, blogs and catalogs and put them in my fashion binder. When I have fashion crisis or fashion blocks (often!!) I just flip a page and get inspired. It will be really simply like "oooooh yeah grey and black do go well together!!! DUH!! But sometimes seeing something as simple as a black and grey outfit via someone else's eye can really change things up.

great tips---the binder could be such a lovely archive over time! So great to look back on. I love gray too. How is it SO refreshing?

good advice. i started a collection of cut-out pics to put in a binder. i haven't actually put them in the binder yet...!
gray and orange go very well together. i'm a huge gray fan also.
and i spy a crucian bracelet on your wrist. i have a couple of those hook bracelets (but of course!)

you look FAB in grey! sadly i look absolutely terrible in grey. but sometimes i try to make it work and just surround it with other colors!

I am just like you...I looooove wearing grey. I just love wearing neutrals in general. But that watch really POPS! I love it! I guess I am scared of bright colors because I'm afraid it'll make me look pale, or clash with my hair. But I love the binder idea for clothing ideas. Its so refreshing to get a taste of your Californian style over here from the East Coast!

Great ideas!! I do have a little binder of fashions that I like or admire! But I admit I am not that much of a fashionista. Owell:)
I also love to make stretchy bracelets!! So simple and I love to wear lots of them at a time!
I love yours:)

You know, I think I only own one grey cardigan. Hmm... wonder why that is.

Love the necklace!

My rule: when in doubt, wear the piece you love the most. Whatever that is.
