Gold is amazing if you wear it with style. I rarely wear glittering clothes but I should definitely do it more often!

Happy Valentine!

Montse said...

Black is the perfect colour , followed byt gold, in my opinion. Gold is a speacil colour which you have to know how to wear it!

Danz said...

Hey CC! I'm not usually a fan of gold clothing but I'm warming up to it. I recently bought a vintage blouse with all over gold sequins. It's definitely glitzy and over-the-top so now I just have to find the right place to wear it!
Happy Valentine's Day darling and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Dooder City said...

Emerald Dandy said...

I love gold - I feel like it can be such a great neutral color to pair back to so many others. I only wish that I was better at incorporating the gilt into my wardrobe!

Cheers from Seattle,

At first I thought those looks from Prada were kind of strange, but I love them noww!

mike said...

very lovely collection. happy vals

Gledwood said...

Is that stuff really this season?... Well I wouldn't know. I've been lost in a timewarp. 10 yrs ago it was all camel and mushroom and Calvin Klein and the same same same minimalist silhouette... at least things moved on since then, haha!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

The Michael Kors cashmere beaded dress is a whole 'lotta look! The Givenchy gown is stunning and I love the Louis bag and clutch. Gold (and really metallics) can be such a powerful statement if it is worn right and with the right accessories. Shine on.

Join the Gossip said...

Oh my. the snack skin bag and the pleated dress by M.K. Hello BLING.

Gold and sliver are special colors I can vision a nice black oblong scarf around my neck to make the outfit but then I remember my wallet is a bit thin and I woke up from my dream!

Fabulous Post!

I really like those sexy Jimmy Choo sandals!

Secretista said...

Gold is my FAVORITE metallic to wear. I blame my mom. Growing up she told me that I should always wear gold and not silver. I wear silver but not as much as gold.

Glittery is so definitely my thing!

Emily said...

So, so sorry for the absence !
MY god, that Lacroix. It obsesses me. It's just.... fantastic. And bold. And not obvious. It reminds me the lighting of Rome and its churchs... well it reminds me so many things ! Love love love it !

Hemaly said...

I love the gold at Chanel! It's crazy, but works.

Lacroix all the way! Great post. Not too keen on that last dress though, there is something a bit off about the material!
