I came across an article in the weekend newspaper referencing the current trend of the head to toe grey outfit, apparently this is known as a “groutfit’ , a term I had never heard before. I must admit to never
really being a huge grey fan , I would much rather just wear black.
This all got me thinking about the phrase “fade to grey’ and what that really means. According to the Urban
Dictionary , a most reliable source, it refers to someone who looses interest in something or someone and
has no motivation to try something new . It also was the title of a song by the British band Visage released
in 1980 .
Determined not to fade to grey I have chosen to wear this rather unusual shaped dress from New Zealand designer Paula Ryan . Both the elephant grey and the shape of the dress would once have been out of my comfort zone but I now enjoy leaving the safety of the known to explore the new.
Tipping my hat to the confidence to try something new and explore a change of style.That to me is
one of the joys of enjoying our clothes and their ability to convey a message of change .
A closeup of the side detail of the sides of the dress and a peek at my Trippen shoes, the most
comfortable shoes I have invested in for some time. I firmly believe it is the small details that
give the most value to any outfit.
I have added an off white jacket from Covers , an Australian label that is no longer, that I have
loved for many seasons.
