According to a (quite helpful) fashion advice conversation yesterday, gray is the new black this year. This is good news for me.
I like a lot of colors in general. But when it comes to clothing, my taste is inveterate. I like the following: black, gray, white, brown (to some extent), blue, muted greens, and cranberry/maroon-ish colors. That is all. I hardly have anything I actually wear that doesn’t fit into these categories. And I don’t wear patterns.
Anyway, with these self-imposed fashion limitations, I have good clothing years (lots of neutrals and subdued colors) and bad clothing years (colorful). I have to say this looks like a good year.
And to my fashion advisor: Thanks!
Also, can I just brag momentarily that I bought a (navy blue) J.Crew skirt yesterday for $17? Original price: $98. And it’s exactly the sort of thing I would have pined for but not bought for more than $40-$50…
