50 Shades of Grey – Chanel Handbag and Other Accessories



We have focused on the fashion and faces in this little series of 50 Shades of Grey and now I want to share with you some fantastic grey accessories.

And of course, if you know me…you know I’ll start with Chanel!

How could you not love this grey patent leather Chanel bag? I love it so much I am tempted to make it a present to myself rather than the classic black. In fact I had a good hard look at a non-patent version when in Hong Kong last October. Everything about this bag, including the dove grey colour, screams chic!

More grey, more style, more to add to my wish list. I tend to select sunglasses with a tortoise-shell frame but this lovely grey pair could certainly change me tune. A little retro and a whole lot of cool.

We’ve seen this style of statement necklace in all the brights so what about a few shades of grey…well, silver, grey and black actually! I like it, I really like it!

I love everything about these grey platform shoes. The fact that they are grey – yes, the platform – most definitely, the ankle wrap and cut-out pattern – oh yea! These would be so fantastic to wear with my charcoal, pin-stripe suit and equally fun with my Tommy Hilfiger grey and burgundy plaid shift dress. They even make me want to find a grey skirt to wear with a t-shirt and these shoes!

You will remember this nail polish pic from an earlier post about polish trends I would wear. What could be more perfect for 50 shades of grey? You get 5 from just this one nail polish trend.

Okay, so this one is a loose interpretation of grey, but I wouldn’t knock it back! Simply stunning!

And finally, for our friends in London that are not letting the rain spoil all the excitement of the Summer Olympics.

Hope you enjoyed this quick look at 50 Shades of Grey Accessories. I know I enjoy the Chanel handbag and the dream that comes with it!
