Color Obsession: Gold + Glitter

I'm absolutely positively mad about the color Gold currently. I used to always think it was sort of tacky and gaudy, and then one day I looked in the mirror and it was like a great big ol' "UH HELLO KB! YOU are tacky and gaudy! Therefore you should loveeeee the color gold!" And just like that, I did! I go back and forth between favoring gold and silver jewelry (my engagement ring is silver) but if I ever wear a necklace then it's almost always gold. Whatever. My point is: Gold is good! I like it. And I want to share with you a lot of pretty gold things! xo

What are some of your favorite gold things?

PS; Are those Miu Miu gold + pink glitter booties and the Kurt Geiger bow flats not the most amazing shoes ever to exist?! I'd wear them always.

  1. Gold certainly makes for a pretty post! I've been in love with that first nail polish since I saw it a bit ago but I can't for the life of me figure out what brand it is. It's probably out of my price range anyway :( Love this post!

  2. I, of course, have to agree that gold is spectacular! (My blog is sort of named after the colour!) But I didn't always like it either. Growing up, I associated it with old people for some reason and always favoured silver. Now I like both interchangably. Maybe gold a little bit more. ;)

  9. I've alwways disliked the color gold until recently. I painted my nails glittery gold on St. Patty's day, and it's been all uphill from there. =] That solid gold nailpolish is beautiful too!

  11. oh i'm the same, i used to think gold was so tacky but now i'm in love! and sometimes it's not tacky but beautiful, and proper gold is far more hard wearing than silver x

  12. I'm a fan of gold but growing up it was always silver. Mostly because my Mom wasn't big on gold but once I was older I feel in love with it! I don't wear it was much as I'd like but I'm not afraid to go for it I mean I had gold sequin flats I wore out in high school. I love the first picture with the gold nails!

  18. I used to feel that way about gold too, but then I realized that gold can be quite delicate and feminine and pretty - but sometimes it's tacky! I love gold & silver, and for the record I wear both at the same time :)
