Grey Matters

Grey is one of my favorite colors for fall and great
as a base in your wardrobe.

Outfit: All H&M except the vintage bracelets.
Nails: Estee Lauder black berry. Love this color!

For et par dager siden ble jeg intervjuet av Kvinneguiden om hva man bør ha i basisgarderoben. Intervjuet kan du lese her. Personlig synes jeg det varierer om du jobber feks på børsen, er student eller jobber i motebransjen. Noen har strikte arbeidsantrekk, mens jeg kan følge min egen stil. Av mine favorittplagg som aldri går av moten, velger jeg Chanel 2.55 vesken, basistshirts, svarte blazere og den lille sorte kjolen. Spe på med vintagesmykker og annet kult tilbehør. Da du får en personlig og unik stil.

So, I was interwied by the online magazine Kvinneguiden about what every woman should have in their basewardobe. I think that depends on what kind of job you have. Since I work in fashion, I can pretty much wear whatever I want, and follow my own style. However, many need to compromise. I mean, if you work in a bank, a suit is probably appropriate. But you can still add what I call "the spice". That being costume jewelry, scarves and nice shoes withouth being over the top. Those small accessories can easily show your unique personality and add some fun to any outfit.
An excerpt from the interview:
K: What is the perfect basewardrobe?

S: Black blazer, an LDB, a vintage flower dress, tees in white, grey and black, jeans, a leather jacket, a clutch, a brown and a black leather handbag for everyday use.

K: Name some things that never goes out of fashion?

S: A Chanel 2.55, a Chanel tweed jacket, a good pair of jeans, a black blazer and a LDB in a classic shape that suits your body.

K: What kind of shoes should a woman own?

S: A pair of classic black heels, tan or nude high heels and some ballerinas. A pair of leopard or red shoes will spice up any outfit and is great for those times you want to add some edge.

I think that Grey is between austerity ansd softness, and your sulfurous nail polish is an exquisite way to electrify such silhouette -ps: and YES !!! Just like "SEXYness-issimes" Red or Tigress shoes-. . .

cool interview, Silje.
I have to say though I think having a colourful bag is much more useful than having a black bag I found from my experience. Black works best with black. Whereas bags with some colour will make an instant statement in a more subtle way then wearing a super colourful outfit, IMHO that is. :)

Your grey outfit is lovely. I might just have to try that colour before our summer heat. It's getting warm though already. it's going to be another hot summer for us.
