BLACK & GOLD EDIT
Black and gold are a match made in heaven and seem to be the only thing making it into my wardrobe and handbag at the moment. So here are a few of my black and gold favourites…
First up underwear. Sister shop to H&M, & Other Stories keep producing the dreamiest pieces. Simple, small, black and lacy and at a fraction of the price they should be. This ponyhair handbag was a great little €18 find from a market in Spain last summer. Thankfully, it’s just big enough to fit my wallet, keys and some make-up. And a slightly pricier purchase was my black leather Comme Des Garconnes wallet with contrasting gold zip.
These very gold earrings were a purchase of mine on a recent trip to Thailand. They are very typical of a lot of the gold worn in south east Asia and are seriously bling. A lot of people find gold medallions tacky but I love mine. My favourites are my gold Buddha amulet and this egyptian hand on a gold chain (supposedly believed to protect you from the ever watching evil eye). I feel naked without my rose gold Larsson and Jennings watch and Tessa Metcalfe gold and silver pigeon claw ring.
My all time favourite scent is Tom Ford’s ‘Black Orchid’, it just can’t be beaten. I love its strong husky fragrance and the fact that it’s unisex. The bottle itself is a beauty and the same goes for the Tom Ford lipstick in its boxy black and gold Art Deco style packaging.
