It’s official. I am obsessed with grey.
My wardrobe is full of it, positively OVERFLOWING with it…… from the softest mottled marl to the deepest darkest charcoal, no matter what the weather, no matter what the occasion, I always manage to fit a piece of G.R.E.Y in there somewhere.
And after the finale of the lovely vintage inspired affair we featured earlier in the week and quite a few of you commenting on the pursuit for the perfect hue/dress combo, it seemed fitting that we had a little look see around the web and share with you gorgeous lot what was on offer.
Not sure it was such a great idea in hindsight because….. um……now I want to buy EVERYTHING we are about to show you. Why didn’t anyone tell me blogging would be so darn expensive hmmm?
Too Cool For School Grey
Perfect preppy simplicity, ideal for day wear with cute ankle boots or ballet flats and easily transformed into evening glamour with the addition of statement jewellery and a pair of killer heels.

Very Fancy And I-Need-A-Second-Mortgage Grey
There is something decidedly Victorian-esque and prim about this frilly number, I want to wear it to the office with a pair of severe framed specs and go all Miss Moneypenny….Dotty Dress £239 by Day Birger Et Mikkelsen for My Wardrobe
They had a very similar black sequined number in French Connection but this DKNY embellished T-shirt version is soooo pretty ( must be the colour eh?) £245 Net-A-Porter
So simple, so chic, so prohibitively expensive …..It’s Miu Miu and my absolute favourite. I just need to sell my soul to actually have half a chance of owning it. Pleated Wool Twill £650 at Net-A-Porter

Are you considering grey in your W-day colour palette?
Is there any other hue you are addicted to?
Would you max out your Visa for a thread of designer delight?
With huge thanks to Fliss from Any Other Wedding for the inspiration ( which by the way on Tuesday had an utterly beautiful account written by RMW bride Aisling on married life, I shed a tear and everything….)
