Black and Yellow Gold

black-and-gold1

Sometimes I have to hunt for weeks to find items on my wish list, and sometimes they just fall right into my shopping cart. Such was the case with these pretty rings and plated belt. Rings have always been my favorite form of jewelry, and I couldn’t wait to try the multi-finger trend. So when I saw this ASOS set for a tiny fraction of the price of the original Balenciaga babies, I had to order them.

As for the belt, I had been wanting a metal-plated option ever since I saw this one around Jennifer Lawrence’s teensy-tiny waist at the Golden Globes this year. Since I don’t count Raf Simons among my close personal friends and therefore don’t exactly have access to the Dior closet, I was thrilled to find the below option at my local Forever 21. It’s not currently available online, but here‘s an exact duplicate.

Put it all together and you get an outfit that fully satisfies my tendency to wear all black and gold all the time.

Vive La France!

Happy Bastille Day!

We share the official colors of red, white and blue with our French friends, but red, white and black seemed a more appropriate color palette to wear when celebrating La Fête Nationale.

Black and white stripes embellished with a bright red pout has always seemed to be the unofficial uniform of the Parisian woman, at least in my  imagination.

So in honor of France’s big day, I raided my closet for a look that would pass on the Champs-Élysées. Without further adieu, my attempt at a très chic Parisian look (crème brûlée not pictured).
