As I am in my last few weeks of carrying baby, things have been incredibly hectic and as one might guess, my ever expanding bump is making it extremely difficult to be motivated about fashion. As I start to grow tired of my weight and the uniform of black tank tops, I embraced American designer Raquel Allegra’s tough obsession with grey.
Allegra shreds, tie-dyes and treats grey , weaving it into endless shades, making it the coolest colour to wear all-year-round. Could it be that she was inspired by 2012’s best selling mommy-porn novel EL James’ “50 shades of Grey”, or rather by Brick Lane- based London label All Saints…?
We teamed an oversize T-shirt dress with a vintage studded lightweight leather hobo bag by Sara Berman and Platinum hued wedge sneakers by Elena Achi, the most comfortable sneakers/ high wedges ever worn, providing much needed support to an aching 37 week back.
