“People think that everyone wears black in France; in fact they all wear grey.”
~ Jean Paul Gaultier
So, again, this is a post that got away from me. I had plans; everything was set in my mind, plotted to the last alpha layer. I was going to photograph shine’s Grey Collection in monochrome with vivid colour accents: bright red lips, stunning aquamarine eyes, verdant green foliage, and bold yellow gloves (you know how I love to play with gloves). When I signed in this morning, though, things came together differently.
I just love when outfits evolve on their own!
Something you will notice, however, is that I kept each outfit very simple; after a month of shimmer, sparkle, and bright colour, it was refreshing to change gears this way. To ‘embrace the grey,’ as it were.
The best part about all of these, though? Only the ‘Grey Collection’ clothing is brand new – everything else was hiding in my inventory. You don’t have to spend to look great, my dears.
Shine by [ZD] has really outdone itself with this collection, I must say, and even though the clothing will only be available until the end of January I’m hoping you’ll drop by the mainstore to take a look for yourself. It’s definitely worth the effort. <3
So here you have it: clothes by shine, +grasp+, Paper Couture, and coldLogic; LeLutka and Exile hair; Amorous jewelry; Gos sunglasses. Shoes from four of my favourite shops: Ingenue, Maitreya, shine, and Gos. IKON eyes. Emery gloves. Great poses from Diesel Works and .. I think that’s about it!
Four outfits, similar in composition but pretty different in effect. You can do it too!
