Okay, maybe I’m a little obsessed. I don’t care. I love gold! I love the drama and the elegance it can add. I love the shiny, rich texture it brings to an outfit or a table setting. I love the shimmery warmth it gives your face when you used in makeup. And mostly I love how timeless and classic it is. As long as there’s been anything, there’s been gold,
So speaking of classic, let’s talk about one of gold’s tried and true partners in crime and the color you can never go wrong with: black.
Black + Gold. Match made in Heaven. It’s a no brainer. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Dynamic Duo. Lovebirds. Jack & Sally. Thelma & Louise. It’s the PB&J of fashion. And I especially adore it around the holidays. It’s chic and festive and classy and fun and wow. Dressed up or down, on a table or on your arm, it’s all fabulous! Obviously, this combination is nothing new, but it’s still relevant and it’s always worth showing some love.
Black Lace Peplum Dress ($48 – don’t spend a lot on trendy items!). Hutton Tuxedo Jacket by Rachel Zoe ($425 – splurge on timeless wardrobe necessities like the black blazer), Christian Louboutin Duvette 120 Cap Toe Pumps ($785 – it’s worth it, they’re Loubi’s!), Tory Burch Gold Flats ($195 – every girl needs a pair of TB flats in her closet)
Put together your favorite B&G ensemble and share it with me on Facebook! I’d love to see your fabulous looks!
All this talk of black and gold has the really catchy Sam Sparro song “Black and Gold” (duh) stuck in my head. You can listen to it here. Katy Perry also did a cover of this song (not the best quality video, but you get the idea. I have the recorded version and it’s great)… you’ll be surprised at how great her voice sounds when she’s not wearing daisy dukes, bikini untied.
