WIW: New silver greys

As I said in this morning's blog post, matching neutrals to my hair is a FFB for me, especially since my hair went grey. I wear silver, light grey, and white in almost every outfit to pick up the tones in my hair, and sometimes charcoal, as well. 

These items are new, part of the big shop! The sweater is actually an exact duplicate of one I bought five years ago. Alas, it's not a long lasting item -- I got two years of solid wear from it before it pilled badly and I replaced with with the BR sweater pictured below in Finds and in Pic. 3 

But the BR sweater proved a poor cousin to the first sweater. It was warmer and it draped well, but it pilled even more egregiously than sweater 1 (and cost a lot more, even on sale). It wasn't as versatile (because it was too warm in some situations, more like a light coatigan). And it lacked the ribbing and slightly variegated shading and the side slits that makes this one more interesting to my eye. 

Anyway, I got this version on super sale and while it is not as high quality an item as I might wish, it's a useful placeholder until I find a better light grey duster -- light grey cardigans being essential to my style. 

Meanwhile, to get free shipping, I added this foil tee. I already own one silver and white foil tee that I love love love. It's still in good shape, but I knew another would not go to waste in my closet. This one is oversized and animal print, a heavier fabric than the other. 

All the other items are older.

    You look beautiful in your silver greys, Suz!  Both new items are excellent and I think it was a great decision to get the tee.  They way things are, if you were to look for one in, say, one year from now, it would be hard to find.  And Max is as cute as ever!

    You are looking luxe in your silver grays!

    Gorgeous in grey!  The boots look especially good with your hair.

    I love how much you wear your clothes! I have tried long cardigans but I always find that the back pulls where I sit down in them. But they are so flattering, aren't they? You look like a tall glass of water.

    Nice — special love from me for the foil tee!

    Silver is like a complement on you it matches your hair so well, your belt buckle, your boots, your t shirt, so pretty!

  • Jaime replied 3 months ago

    Gorgeous on you! The t shirt looks smashing - it will definitely justify its purchase!

    Both you and Max look beautiful. I love how luxe white and silver look on you.

  • Star replied 3 months ago

    I love these pieces, 2 fab stylish outfits!  I will remember to try white when my silver is fully grown in my hair.  You look radiant.  Cutie Max!

  • Mary Beth (formerly LBD) replied 3 months ago

    Suz, you are absolutely stunning in both of these looks!   But I especially love the silver <3 

  • RobinF replied 3 months ago

    I love long sweaters and this one is wonderful on you. It works so well with your other pieces and just seems right.

  • Helena replied 3 months ago

    You wear these tones so beautifully Suz!

  • suntiger replied 3 months ago

    These are great and very You! Hi Max :)

  • Jonesy replied 3 months ago

    Replacements can sometimes be shadows of the originals, can't they? Too bad. However, these are fab looks! I can see why a gray cardigan is essential for your style. Love seeing your adorable kitty too :).

  • Katerina replied 3 months ago

    What perfect items! I like the new cardigan even better than the BR in pic 3. The foil tee is lovely, I really like the high neckline. You look gorgeous!

    Silver loves you back! Like the ‘matching’ metallic footwear; perfect bookending. It is tough to predict what knitwear will prove most enduring and free from pilling.

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Blast that pilling :(

    That said, you have a SUBLIME silver pixie Suz, and wear pearl grey and silver with the best of them! These outfits are sooo you, and a great example of the styling strategies in the blog post. Gorgeous! #1 is my KILLER fave. 

    Hi, Max!

    Oh, I meant to add, Max is adorable. Hi Max!
