Guesting Marvellous: New Season Nudes

Whoop whoop! It's pamja libri's first ever guest post and I can't think of a nicer person to collaborate with than The Flip Side of Oz's Gracie!

So, our theme was New Season Nudes - entering into Spring, the dark colours of Winter are being thrown off for pretty pastels and sheer, chic neutrals. Gracie and I both came up with our own take on the look, how do you like them?

Here is Gracie's version:

I am loving that woven clutch - all the textural influences around at the moment have me experiementing with fabric folding on my sewing machine (not so successfully however...) I love Burberry's knotted skirt in shimmering silks, as a prime example. Gracie's look is the epitome of sophisticate, the nudes paired with the black harems to create an edgy look that I reckon would work in pretty much any situation.

My look contrasts the soft nudes with tough pieces and some directional jewels...

Here is mine:

 That golden brooch would probably attack me (I cut my finger on the studs on my skirt yesterday!) but it ties in the soft tones of the neutrals with the hard edge brought in by the leather trousers and origami jacket. The silken slip looks divinely comfy as well as being something I picture rolling out of bed, throwing on and just striding out looking fabulous in - ah, dreams. 
I always love a good pair of feature gloves and something about those earrings just called out to be included...

So, how did you like our collaborative post? What do you think about the New Season Nudes - are you already styling them or are you avoiding them like the plague?

I think it's a great idea. Wish you had a photo of you in an outfit, too.
