Gone are the days of associating Grey with accountants, in fact if you spot one wearing Grey these days, it's probably one whose become very fashion conscious! Grey is not a colour that flatters on it's own, as it tends to impale our skin colours, rendering us looking all "washed out". Yet, when worn with bold colours, or combined with  Black, it becomes quite dynamic! My initial perception of the Moto jacket was that it is a little 'young' for me, however, if you happen to be a women of a certain age, you could experiment with it by combining it with more timeless pieces to create a less "youthful look", or shall I say "more mature" look? As you may well know I do not promote the idea of dressing "older" but dressing your body type instead. If the shoe fits, wear it by all means! You don't have to be 18 to wear a Moto jacket with flair! The bag speaks for itself, apart from the fact that the lamb skin leather is as soft as a baby's touch....I need not mention anything else about it! As for my hairdo, the wind had a mind of it's own this morning, re-arranging my bangs and leaving me with a rather ruffled up look!

  1. I often receive comments like "I can't believe this ... is from H&M!"
    You are so right, Nicolene, it is all about the styling and accessories. The way you combined this jacket is more Chanel style and certainly not "too young". Great look!

  2. I love gray, it's a softer version of black! I agree that it's all about the fit, if it doesn't fit it will look awful no matter what your age!
