Color Post: Glorious Gray

Overrated vs. Underrated:

Drinking at Clubs vs. Wine Nights at home with your Girlfriends.

Jay Leno vs. Conan O'Brien

Ke$ha vs. Britney Spears (ha- that might be bias)

And...

Black/White/Pink/Yellow etc. etc. vs. Grey

I (of course) love those colors above. But I so often feel like Gray/Grey (how the hell do I properly spell that?) is the Understudy to a famous Actor who can't really Act. Despite being overlooked, Gray/Grey is soooo simple, so pretty and so complimentary with every other color of the rainbow.

Thus, with much adieu, I would like to give a little love to one of my favorite colors to wear...Gray/Grey (seriously- "a" or "e"?):

Loved your post!!!

I totally feels this, especially with regards to the humble cardigan, grey just stomps all over the other colours (I spell it with an 'e', I think it might be because I'm Australian, and sill as that sounds haha?).

I love gray/grey too! Sometimes it does the trick much better than black OR white.

Gray is my go to color. I wear it almost as much as black. Its actually one of my favorite colors ever!

Kara said...

Both versions are technically correct :)

I love gray! A girl I work with was wearing a SUPER CUTE gray blazer the other day but we don't know each other very well so I felt weird about asking her where she got it. It was pretty fab though...maybe I should grow a pair and ask?

Grey is my go to color!! I love it because It looks cool and can be edgy yet doesn't give that "trying too hard" feel

ps...I LOVE CONAN!!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Yay! I love your color posts. Gray is so severely underrated - it's honestly one of my favorite shades!! :)

I really all of your wearable gray picks, not sure I'm a fan of grays in interiors. And it's pretty simple, "gray" is American spelling and "grey" is British, so both are correct :)

cupcake♥trash said...

zupu said...

I really never thought of grey ('e' or 'a', even i don't know!! phew!) as such a vast colour!! It is so spread out..

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

Sher said...

This is seriously food for thought! I don't think I have much gray/grey items in the closet at all! But those pictures you posted are really inspirational, I have to get more gray/grey in my life:)

Amanda said...

I do love gray (which is how the color is spelled, I believe, and usually when it's someone's name - like Grey's Anatomy - it's spelled with an E), but it never looks good on me :( Such a versatile color!

I've passed on a blog award to you btw! I've been missing out on the blog world for like the last month, but I've always loved your blog!
