fifty shades of grey by mademoiselle jules mlle

Did  the latest steamy chick-lit book craze, "Fifty Shades of Grey" have you itching for "lovin" ?  Millions of women are now well acquainted with a certain Mr. Christian Grey.  I didn't read the book or see the movie, but I'm curious like many other by all the hype. After "9 1/2 weeks" and "Eyes Wides Shut" we were overdue for some fantasy and romance - something to spice things up. 

Jamie Dornan kept me up late a few nights where he portrays a cold blooded serial killer on in his hit thriller "The Fall"  playing on Netfilx.  This Northern Irish actor is talented and not so difficult for the eyes!

Love the look of the Iro Jeans sweater that shows off just enough to be sexy without being to revealing.  I'm a big fan of the Parisian brand.

Keeping with the Fifty Shades of Grey mood, check out the Alexander Wang Fall 2015 collection, presented at Fashion Week in NY.

From head to toe, grey is the new black. While black and white are classic and the combination will never go out of style, the runways were abounding with this in-between color, from charcoal to slate. Consider it the new neutral.

Try mixing greys with silver and even gold - it makes it modern and keeps grey fresh, and not gloomy or sad looking.  This trend is so easy, and can easily make your wardrobe current.

You most likely already have grey pieces floating around your closet, which is where I like to start when planning seasonal shopping. Start with your grey jeans that you already have, and buy a bulky grey sweater to pair with it. Mix the grey scarf that you’ve had for ages with a little black dress or jeans and a white tee. Grey is timeless, it’s here to stay, and it’s sleek. For that reason, if you are going to splurge on something ... grey would be a great color to buy!  For more inspo have a look at my Polyvore or also Pintrest board.
