Chic Sighting: at the corner of Clark and Diversey

For years, high-quality menswear has shown brown leather accessories with gray and navy clothing (check out Paul Stuart if you're not familiar with the idea).  The woman I saw Saturday was working that look to perfection...

  3. As I have just bought a brown bag and wear lots of grey I am glad to hear that they work together.

  4. I've always worn brown shoes with gray and navy--is that considered "odd"?

    What an elegant outfit!

  6. I posted a new purchase, a grey blazer, on my blog today - as you know because you commented (thank you for that, by the way). And it occurred to me that grey isn't that flattering for my skin tone. But brown is okay. I will have to try wearing brown with it and perhaps a touch of navy. Thanks for the idea!
