Im at home in monochrome

Remember how I was drooling over Gucci’s Fall collection and lamenting the lack of color in my own wardrobe? Luckily for me, Frida (we’re on a first name basis now, you know) also included some inspiration for us gray lovers:

…So, I took my cue from there:

Thrifted blazer, blouse, oxford, belt, and heels; Lux trousers; Da-Me hat*; Wilson’s bag

*Is it just me, or have fedoras gained sort of a douche-y rep in the last few years? How can we make that go away?

    I like it,too. Monochrome leaves more room to make a splash with accessories… my favorite!

    I love your tweed jacket. And the fit on your pant is very flattering.

    The shoes! I love the shoes! Is there a post where we can see the full shoe? The outfit is genius (as usual) but I’m especially made for the shoes.

    Everything about the looks is simply perfect. I think I’d feel powerful in it. Like the sassy woman on a serious mission. The shoes get 5 stars!

    I have to admit, one of the reasons I hesitate to wear a fedora is because I don’t want to look like a hispter douche 😛 But it looks perfect paired with such elegant pieces like this!

      The shoes are so old that most of the name has been worn off! It looks like it probably said “American” something. Maybe “American Girl”?
