More Gray

More snowy, gray weather in the Midwest today. Although I am beyond sick of all the winter weather, this is a beautiful powdery snow. It makes me wish I were skiing in Aspen, and not stuck here working and cleaning house all day.

Because my friend, Shiloh asked for some gray purses, and I ALWAYS try to oblige my readers, here is to you dear Shiloh...gray purses.
This is the very cool Botkier Sophie Tote which can be found at BLOOMINGDALE'S . I love the 2 zipper pockes on the sides-perfect for lipgloss, powder, and your cellphone.
I love the taupey gray shade of this Bottega Veneta Woven Hobo bag from
OVERSTOCK.COM . The woven hobo by Bottega is a classic. I really love this one.

This insanely beautiful bag is the Zagliani Crocodile Puffy Satchel. I worship this bag. The shape is so classic and feminine. The soft gray crocodile makes me weep. This gorgeous little number is found at SAKS.COM and will cost you a whopping $11,800.00--oh in that case dolls, lets take two.
I blogged about this B&D Tuxedo Bag from
NET-A-PORTER last year, so I am not even sure if it is still around for purchase. I happen to love it and it is a beautiful gray so I think it is worthy of double honor. Besides, if you click on the Net-a-Porter link, there are all sorts of lovely things to swoon over.

This is the Tory Burch "T" Contrast Patent Leather Tote. I think it is cool and the patent red looks great with the gray. I must be honest- I love Tory Burch, I really really really do, but I feel that some of her logo stuff is just a BIT over the top. This bag can be found at NORDSTROM .

On a recent trip to New York City, I was going to an event and I needed a clutch-so I went to Saks where I can always find what I need. I fell in love with this Treesje clutch. Check out their beautiful bags here: TREESJE . I almost bought the black one, but the very cool sales associate at Saks talked me into the shiny gray one. I know it looks dark in the photo, but it is really a very nice pewter gray color. This is a picture of me and Fin in all the snow. This is my gray coat, AHEM- FROM TARGET, and a gray cashmere scarf. I love my gray Target coat and I actually get a lot of compliments on it. I love Target. Those are my new Oliver Peoples sunglasses. I love Oliver Peoples, so I wanted to give them a shout out too. OLIVER PEOPLES .

I was looking through old photos this weekend and I came across this picture of Forrest and me when Forrest was 10 weeks old. He is now 12 years old--so this photo is very old. I thought I would post it becasue my baby puppy was very sweet and cute , and because I have on a big GRAY shirt--with leggings. Twelve years ago I could get away with leggings--not so much anymore. Time goes by so quickly.

Beautiful day to all!

HUGS to Shiloh!

It says quite a bit for your ageless beauty as well as your skincare regime that you look the exact same as you did 12 years ago. minus the leggings. although, you would look good in those too! I have such hot friends.

I need that 11 thousand dollar bag.
I cannot believe that is Forrest. I keep seeing the photo of him growling and showing his teeth like he is going to kill someone. He looks so fun in that picture. I love your bright red nails. have you always been a nail polish girl?
The Oliver Peoples, girl those are hot. I need some of those.
I love the photo from 12 years ago. Sweet.

Beautiful choices. I never really see very many grey bags around town. I can see where it would be a wise choice because it is neutral.
You and Forrest look so very cute back in the day.
Love the Target coat.

Oh, I am so glad to have a face with your name, Jen -- and youthful, too -- as well as darling pics of the pooches.

The photos of you with the pretty coat and Finley in the snow and Forrest as a baby are beautiful! You haven't changed a bit and how small and sweet Forrest looked. Now he's a big love bug! I hope he's doing better lately, please give him a big hug for me,thanks.

The bags are gorgeous! Especially the $11.800 one. Yes, I'll take two, please, lol! I like your Treesje clutch, glad the SA suggested the shiny pewter one over the black. Love the taupe woven bag the best. It's a simple shape that works well for me.
I love gray bags, but it has been years since I owned one. Glad to see the color is back in style.

I hope your weather warms up soon and your snow thaws. I'm sure you're getting bored with it by now. Here's wishing you blue skies and warmer sunny days soon!
Be happy cara mia!

I love grey too, and I especially love the fact that you're not above buying a coat at Target. And I really love that gorgeous picture of you with Forrest. :-)
