I’ve been poking a voodoo doll that you do not know I made for you, of you, let’s see what needles do

Grey is my word/color of the day. The majority of my closet is grey- it’s one of my favorite colors. Pink is another favorite, and I’m still super excited about the extensions I got during Fashion’s Night Out a few weeks ago from Salon Acote. They gave me red and blonde extensions and I rushed out to Hot Topic right after and got some pink hair dye. Bless my boss and her infinite patience with my sartorial choices!

A better shot of the various friendship bracelets I’ve bought and not made. Any crafting beyond cutting and safety pinning is way too hard for me.

The necklace is a DIY I actually did, based on this from Bleach Black. I got a vintage necklace on Etsy, some bright chalk paint markers and colored away. I’m not thrilled because it flakes off easily, but it’ll do until I can get an actual Tom Binns piece. Or a better “inspired by” piece!

    It might be gray, but this look is anything but boring! And your hair? RAD! Love, love, love it!

    i’m soooo wanting to try that neon necklace DIY as well! i love the colors you used. i was thinking of trying with nail polish though, but i can’t decide on a necklace to ruin. might have to get a cheapie one from F21.

    You made that necklace? I was admiring it beneath your chocolate smeared face last night.

    The pink hair is fun!

    s gavce the extensions the eye but let it go. I tell myself that I am good enough at my jov that they can just deal with my occassional bits of colored hair, etc… right?  RIGHT???

    You look amazing in grey! Hahaha, love that you admit to not making the friendship bracelets.  I never could!  Stay tuned for a promo at Fashionhogger coming soon!

    Love the grey, it’s my favorite color!

  • Jaime @ La vie...J'aime September 22, 2011, 7:02 pm

    the necklace looks fab! what an awesome idea. I love this monochrome look and then the peek of pink- so fun!

  • Hilary Grace September 22, 2011, 8:09 pm

    Grey is one of my favorites as well! I love wearing it. Your DIY necklace came out so so good! I really wanna try that.. I’ve been seeing it popping up everywhere. & will you be at the swap next week??

    LOVE the pink extensions! I think they’re subtle enough to be work appropriate. (But still awesome!)

  • Marta September 24, 2011, 2:15 pm

    I like gray too and I’m loving this whole look you have here!

  • Pennerad September 24, 2011, 2:35 pm

    I love the irreverent second photo.  The pink extensions are amazing!
    That tank and dress are the shiznit.  I’ve been living in grey and black and leather since I started school this semester….my whole closet mostly matches now though lol.
    chloe cat still on the mend?

    This all-grey outfit is impressive!! I wish I had your skin tone to wear such pale shades of grey successfully!

  • Jennifer Shih September 26, 2011, 7:35 am

    Wow – can’t believe you DIY your necklace, I love it!

    Hey Najeema! Saw you at the Lily & Migs show last night, but didn’t get a chance to talk to you!  Hope we get to meet next time; look for me in the press pit on Thurs and Friday.

  • Kinsey Michaels September 28, 2011, 2:32 pm

    great look Najeema, I like how you wore all grey, it goes well together, and looks especially polished with the blazer. I hope you’re doing well!!! I need to get up to speed on all the Boston Fashion Week events, it sounds like it topped last year!

    So much to love about this. First, this is one of those ideal outfits I wish I could copy for work (but I’d need to be about 6 inched taller to pull it off with flat boots like that). Second, this is one of those ideal outfits I wish I could copy for events (you get the idea)… And how about a DIY day? This necklace went much better than the friendship bracelets!

  • STARR September 30, 2011, 10:42 am

    The grey is so nice with the bright hair extensions :)

  • Districtofchic September 30, 2011, 11:14 pm

    I love the soft gray pieces with the bright accessories.

  • Noelani@MonPetitChouChou October 2, 2011, 7:27 pm

    Love the DIY necklace, it pops so well with all the grey! I am still holding my breath for a Tom Binns, but since that day may never come, I should probably invest in some chalk;)

  • Jesspgh of Consume or Consumed October 4, 2011, 1:00 am

    You look so. damn. COOL. I know I say that a lot. But I just think you exude chic. This outfit is awesome. I love the grays and the proportions.
