Silver & Gold

OK, apart from the fact that I sing "Silver & Gold" non-stop through the holidays (and year-round, really), I actually do think that silver & gold go quite well together.  I have friends who disagree, but I pair the two together all the time.  I'm not one of those people who thinks that because I'm wearing a silver bracelet, I can't include any gold jewelry.  I like to mix it up.  


For my silver & gold outfit, I chose to pair my Marni/H&M gold-accented pants with silver heels, and jewelry that brings in the best of both worlds.  You'll notice that my shirt is also gold & the hardware on my bag is silver.  I think the two get along just fine!  What do you guys think of my pairing?

PS.  I hope you all had a lovely holiday!  And don't forget to enter my $75 Shopbop giftcard giveaway!!

    May the force be with you.

  84. You know, i used to think that silver and gold don't go together, but few years ago i decided to be a little bit more adventurous and started experimenting with the combinations. And now, i mix all sorts of stuff and it works. I think it's not about matching, it's about mixing and how you do it,

    Have a lovely weekend.
