The power and the glory

gray dress

I was very close to naming this post 50 shades of Grey or something related to this, but refrained because it's become such a cliche. I was expecting a day full of sunshine to contrast my slightly dark look (and mood) and was confronted with gloomy skies, fog and gray pavements instead. I was blending in, which was not my intention at all. I was really apprehensive regarding this dress when I first pulled it out from the parcel Nowistyle sent me. It looked huge and had zero hanger appeal. But the instant I put it on I fell in love with it. It's the perfect combination of shape, volume and design that I have been drawn to lately. I wanted to break the gray/black mix but at the same time complement it so I opted for two toned ankle boots. This whole ensemble gave me a real feeling of empowerment. I look like I mean business, don't I?
