Fade to Grey

Skirt: Random shop in NYC. T.Shirt: American Apparel.

Grey is my second favorite colour to wear. After black of course! (um, if you are reading this in America and are wondering about my spelling- that's how we spell colour in England!) I love the waist band on this skirt. It's just the right side of tight and it sits perfectly on the waist. 

There is something really cosy about grey. If I'm buying sweatpants or a hoodie I nearly always go for grey. Case in point below.... I think even my nail polish is grey in this picture!

Pilot season is in full swing now and me and the boy are busier then ever. We call our apartment 'acting camp'. We each have our own area. He works in the dining room and I work in the bathroom.... Dont ask me why, I just like the vibe in there. It's very feminine and serene! I actually have to go back to acting camp aka the bathroom now because I have lines to learn for tomorrow :)

---------------- grey gardens -------------
- - - - - - - - (hip-hip hooray!) - - - - - - -
i know it might all seem quite a bit bizarre
chance encountering, one most ordinary day -
however, what was witnessed, oh so rare
literally, positively, taking my breath away!

honest, not trippin' on any kinda hallucinogen
stumbled upon this garden, all bedecked in grey -
yet, in its very centre, wow, an exquisite flower
so stunningly lovely, in her hypnotic hue array!

namaste,
xoxo

kitty said...

haha I am always in black or gray and people are always asking me to mix it up...SCREW THEM.
Girl, I am sending you positive vibes. Gosh, I want to see you in a popular American show.
On the Secret Diary FB page, many people are saying that you are there favorite character. I agree that they should focus on Bambi more.
Where did you get your extentions done? They look amazing, I'm jealous.

Ashley said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments guys! There's a lot of love for grey out there huh!?

Ok so... My lovely (and very patient) boyfriend takes all my pictures. There really wouldn't be much of a blog with out him and nobody takes a better picture of me in my opinion!

My hair has extensions in. Nothing fancy just some clip ins. I put them in myself. I think I'll do a "how to" hair post soon because lots of you ask about them.

Kitty- Don't be jealous, you too can have lovely extensions! It's super easy! :)

*their NOT there! OK, I really need to proof-read.

Ashley, where do you like to shop in LA? I know it may sound corny, but a few stores in downtown L.A. have random, disposable, cute clothes. However, you must know where to go because a lot of the clothes are horrendous lol. I like to mix things up. For instance, the other day I wore a dress from H&M with my Louboutins. You also seem like you like to mix things up.
OK, back to work;).

Em said...

Do a hair post! PLEASE DO A HAIR POST!
Is your hair straightened using GHD'S? Or permanently straightened? Is it blow dried? How do you keep it in such good condition? What extensions do you use?

PLEASE DO A HAIR POST!! xx

Ashley said...

Em- Your comment made me laugh so much! Ok I will definitely do a hair post. Quick answers to your questions:

*Yep, love GHD.

*I've never chemically straightened it.

*Cant be bothered to blow dry it.

*It's in way worse condition then you think!

*The extensions are by Remy from Head Kandy

I absolutely love the hair! I always want that bohemian look but instead get bed-head Beyonce. And I used to chemically straighten my hair but after two years of damaage-fest, I've decided to let it grow out (see Exhibit A: my gangster 1/2 inch roots in all of my recent photos on the blog).

Fashion Chalet said...

Ps. I just added your link to my blog roll today ;)

Fashion Chalet said...

thanks! :)

The Queen of Hearts said...

Oh trust me, they are THERE! For some reason, you can't see them in the party pictures because it was so dark in there...best lighting for that sort of thing I suppose.

Side: I'm going to Los Angeles in a month or so and I am super excited (its an annual trip for me). If you have any recommendations for anything new and exciting to do, eat, see, party, shop, etc... please let me know!

And of course, I'm adding you to my blog roll as well. I'm pretty excited that you're my new blogger find!
