INSPIRED BY: COLLABORATION - SHADES OF GREY x LIFE'S TOO SHORT10:27 am
Hi everyone! Another weekend has flown by! The good news is it's a long weekend for those of us in Canada!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by the ladies at Shades of Grey, a local boutique here in Edmonton, about the possibility of a collaboration! Thrilled, I immediately responded with a "hell ya!" which I quickly followed up with a more professional "I'd love too." LOL! No major faux pas was committed in the end though as the girls at Shades of Grey, Celina, Marina, and Tina, for those of you who know them, and I go WAY back! Sadly though in the years before the internet we had lost touch, but a few years ago through the marvel of Facebook we reconnected.
So today I bring you our first look! "Shopping" for the post was seriously so much fun, and it was so hard to pick just a few items to use as the store is full of fabulous finds. For months I have been on the hunt for a new leather jacket so I was thrilled to learn that Shades of Grey carries a variety of outerwear with this stunner included! I opted to go with a slightly smaller size for this look because I liked the idea of wearing it open, but the jacket also has a beautiful peplum feature when it is done up. I chose to pair it with some basics, some simple but stunning jewelry, and a casual bag for a slight pop of color. I was a little worried that the overall look was a bit too basic, but Marina assured me that with shoes it would be perfect. She was right! That is another thing I love about the boutique, the girls themselves have some serious fashion savvy of their own, and are quick to provide useful suggestions and feedback!
So over the next few months Shades of Grey and Life's too short...buy the shoes will be featuring a new collaboration every few weeks. I already can't wait to return and put together something new so stay tuned!
