There is nothing I love more than varying shades of the same color,
especially the grays.  I've always loved grays for interiors, even before I saw
the light via Christina's Greige blog (one of my favs), but I do love it in fashion
as well.  Like Sterling Silver or Platinum, you know?
And like this cover photo.
Layers & layers of ruffles, ruches, richness & finery,
topped off by the beautiful red hair of Karen Elsen,
 photographed by Steven Meisel.

I know, I know...I'm completely copping out on creating my own beautiful
post by copy-catting Vogue Italia's cover.  
But I have so much to think about
with next Tuesday's post for the international blog party called

By Invitation Only

The topic for October's post was selected by 2 of our original members,

Tish Jett of Femme d'un A Certain Age
Vicki Archer of French Essence

so, of course, I'm thinking thinking thinking about what I will
write...cause with inspiration from these 2 you know it must
be fabulous !

Hello,dear Marsha;-)*

This cover of Vogue makes me think about fashion from years 40-50...because of model and the colors combination.
This nostalgic expression in her gray eyes plus these autumn-red hair and palett of all perl-gray colors,fascinating!

I am SO huge curious about the new post: By Invitation only!!!

My hugs and Love,

Francesca Muir said...

Thank you such an opulent cover - something we don't see very often here in Australia. Looking forward to your Invitation Only post - this is such a lovely idea and how I loved reading everyone's blogs last month - all unique and heartfelt. Roll on next week! Francesca
