Black and Gold: The Color Combo De Jour




Black and gold always make me feel like a million bucks so what better to wear on weekend 2 of my birthday month that a gold accented black skirt and matching tie back sheer crop top sent to me by the lovely Jenneh Boyah of Design for Greatness. The sheer mesh fabrics added a sartorial sexy vibe while the gold accents gave an air of opulence. 

I wore this outfit about three weeks ago and as we wind down on sporting dark looks cos well, Spring has sprung, I thought I should wear it again to a dinner out. Twice in a month, hat's how much I love it.

Even though black looks great for daytime, it's known for it’s dominance of night time looks. Up the ante by throwing in some gold bling and or accessories. 

I can’t think of a lot of things that don’t come in black and gold. From bags to shoes and jewelry, this classic combo is like the girl next door of colors. Both during the holidays and always, It gives an instant upgrade to a look. 

While skin tone plays a role in who looks best in gold compared to silver, an outfit like this is not overwhelmingly gold and would work both for darker skin (yellow undertones) like mine and lighter (cooler undertones) skin. 

A black clutch with gold clasp and a pair of lace black heels completed the look. 

I'm keeping this brief cos it's report card week and I'm drowning in work. But have a great week loves!

Thanks for all the love on my last post here.

  9. All that lace work is so amazing, really draws the eye in to have such intricate details. Elegance, class, poise and grace are all words this look makes me think of. Wonderful closeup of that beautiful face, dear! Your cheeks are sculpted, those eyes are smokey as the F word (as the kids say) and those lips are luscious, bold and so tempting. You don't play the game, you don't change the game you are the game ;)
