So readers if you haven’t already guessed I was pleasantly smacked upside the head by hurricane Sandy and have been knocked offline for quite sometime. I’m currently fighting off suburban, mini van driving, diaper bag toting mothers in the only Starbucks with electricity for a 10 mile radius. It’s been a rough 3 days, no electricity, no heat but my family & I are managing. I pray that you are all safe and keeping warm.
But in an effort to chase away the cold Sandy blues I thought I would cheer you all up with a fun fashion trend that’s been frequenting the runways. Gold is back people! Back in a big flashy manner and I suggest you hop on this fun trend. The fall runway has been full of shimmery gold glamour and it can easily translate from runway to everyday.
The key to gold is to remember that it is a statement color all it’s own, it needs nothing to enhance it. Gold looks amazing on everyone, from the deepest chocolate skin to the frailest pink tones, so no one should be afraid of it. Embrace the studio 54 glitter goddess inside you and find your gold statement piece. A pure gold sheath or wrap dress would be amazing with a neutral face and the fiercest black pumps you can find. Or you could pair an angelic white top with a fierce gold skirt and cinch that bad boy with the meanest vintage belt you can find. I really want to stress that my plus sized ladies should not fear the bold nature of gold. If you’re looking to wear an all gold dress an empire waist is your best bet to be the most stunning gold statue in the room.
Gold is amazing. It’s a great feel good piece because it has the potential to just make you feel so pretty. Just remember to not overdo it. Too much gold and you can look tacky and clownish. There’s no need for any gold jewelry with an all gold outfit & please leave the gold nails for the little black dress. If you rock gold let your one piece stand all on its own. Stay warm my beauties and be fabulous.
