WSJ September issue via Keep It Chic
According to Keep it Chic gray felt and knits are the way to go this fall. Considering that I have three pieces of gray wool flannel and worsted, a gorgeous gray and black double sided cashmere knit, a couple of beautiful gray rayon knits and two gray bottom weight cottons in my stash I am off to a good start.
I've been wearing a lot of gray since I let my hair go natural. I like how it sets off my silver hair.
I also have a gray and black herringbone coating in my stash that I am planning on sewing up this fall. My color palette has narrowed over the last few years, but I like gray, black and white and it certainly makes it easy to get dressed. Occasionally I buy fabric in a different color and it sits there in my stash never sewn.
On a different note, take a good look at the welt breast pocket in the top photo. I would assume that this is a very expensive coat where you'd expect all the details to be perfectly sewn. The left side of this pocket is sewn properly; on the right side the welts overlap. A definite no no.
I do have a new outfit to photograph and post. Hopefully I'll get it up this weekend.
