Here shows another variation on the black and grey theme. Expect more combinations of these two non-colors in future posts.

All you fellow black wearers out there, do you combine it with grey? And speaking of grey, would you let your hair go in that direction? Clearly, I am. How does it feel? Sublimely liberating, rebellious and lovely. As a bonus, I found my mojo again.

Here again are not-quite-matching greys anchored by black shoes. To date, I have bought only five articles of clothing this year (not including foundations and workout wear), all by Rick Owens, all grey, all from YOOX.com, save for one black tank. What clothing have you purchased this year? Anything from RO?

 PAMELA LOVE EAGLE CLAW EARRING

Among the few items on my 2014 shopping list was a Pamela Love eagle claw earring. Since she appeared on the style scene, her mysterious and edgy pieces have tempted me on multiple occasions; however it was always when I was least interested in acquiring jewelry. Well, I'm past that now. Pictured is my first Pamela Love acquisition and I could not be more pleased with it. You may remember it from previous outfit posts.

You can buy both earrings for a matching set (they're sold individually). I can't imagine wanting both, though, because when wearing a large talon through one's earlobe, less is absolutely enough.

What jewelry have you purchased this year? What's on your wish list? A few of my wish list items plus the claw earring are pictured below.

How's your summer going (or, winter if in southern hemisphere)? I call this my summer of transformation: I'm catching up on things that have been neglected, undertaking challenging and rewarding projects, planning for future endeavors, and living healthfully, compassionately and mindfully. It's a big job but somebody's got to do it, right? The time is now. What changes have you made recently?
