Good mid-morning, fair maidens. How's everyone feeling in blogland today?
Instead of killing y'all with Halloween posts right off the bat, (I'll wait until later in the week for that madness), I thought we'd take a look at my metal of choice for fall this year.
Actually, gold is pretty much always my metal of choice for fall. Because it's warmer than silver and tends to go with brown a bit better than silver. And brown dominates 3/4 of my closet during autumn. So there you have it.
It's funny, I actually prefer silver or white gold when it comes to rings and brooches and such, but as far as costume jewelry is concerned...gold all the way!
Anywhozit...aren't these necklaces just so darn pretty? Well these and everything else in this post from Planet Blue. Yeah, I want it all, too. Sigh...
There's something about gold embellishments that just makes me want to join a caravan, jump aboard a wagon and ride off into the sunset with a band of gypsies.
Ok, maybe not. Who am I kidding? I'm way too attached to my electrical outlets, Chi iron, Real Housewives of D.C. re-runs and daily Starbucks trips to live such a nomadic lifestyle.
Other things gold makes me think of:
-Stevie Nicks (once again, goes back to the whole gypsie, carefree attitude thing...dunno why)
-Austin Powers Goldmember (obvi)
-Princess Jasmine from Aladdin
-spitoons (...or were those brass?)
In summary, I like gold this fall. And you should too. Well, far be it of me to tell you what you should like, but I suggest you give it a try. You might just find something about this heavenly metal that melts your butter. Or floats your boat. Or whatever.
Be blessed, lovelies-
