    I absolutely love gold outtifs, but I think they can go very, very wrong if overdone. This is why whenever I wear gold outtifs, I try to stick to one colour scheme and keep the shoes and accessories simple! Gold is such a rich, beautiful tone, and overwhelming it is the last thing I want. I would style this gorgeous D G dress with nude/skin-toned, close-toed pumps, to keep with the same colour range as the gold. As much as I am a shoe fiend, I don’t think they should be the focal point of this outfit.To cinch the waist and add more shape, I would use a thin, nude belt. I would avoid any sort of coloured, metallic, or obvious buckle again keeping it simple. The jewelry is where I’d add the pop of colour. I’m picturing a turquoise tear-drop pendant that skims just below the colar bones. With a gold chain, of course. I cannot bring myself to put silver and gold together shudder. No bangles this time, but I’d wear my usual gold rings. Talking specifics, a gold knuckle ring and simpler gold band on one hand, and a large turquoise stone centre ring on the other, to match the necklace. My look is ALMOST pulled together, I swear! I would keep a nude lip with a bit of gloss, peach cheeks, and simple eye makeup a neutral-toned palette and a coat of mascara. I’m very proud of my long, thick Asian hair, so I would wear it down with large, natural-looking waves. My long dark hair is another reason why I would want to keep it simple with accessories! There’s already a large contrast between the black of my hair, and the rich gold colour of the dress. I follow you on Fashionista Talk (and Chictopia, if that counts). – Kathy

    I thought that was Eva Mendez for a secnod. She looks so mature there. And tan. Not that she wasn’t already mature. I just think of her as youthful. Not that I can talk considering I am younger than her. Haha I don’t know what I am trying to say. Happy Friday!

    Not sure if you are a fan of dance, but I couldn’t put down “Somewhere”, the Jerome Robbins bgahropiy. Also, for a giggle, if you can get your hands on any of the old Marjorie Hillis books (“Orchids on Your Budget”, “Live Alone and Like It”, “Cornbeef and Caviar”), go for it. I think they might have been reissued in the last few years, but I have vintage ones that are just adorable. I hope you enjoy the rest of the Julia Child book…I loved, loved, loved it! I liked “The Help”, too, and well, anything by Fitzgerald. CB
