Woman, In Gold

Lately, I’ve been really into metallics. Or maybe I’m just drawn to all things shiny and sparkly ;) But really, they’re fun and can seriously add a whole new element to any ensemble.

To be honest, I made this kimono on a wimb a couple months ago. I was browsing through JoAnn’s one day and found this awesome fabric. The way it caught my eye, I knew I just needed to get some and figure out what to make from it later… And then I found a kimono pattern on a nearby shelf. Aside from its shininess, this fabric is a great knit that’s super comfortable (and was really easy to work with), so a kimono was this fabric’s fate.

Last week, I was in NYC and this golden number was in my suitcase. Sinceย comfort is more favorable while in New York, I dressed it down with leather shoes and accessories. And it made me realize the great thing about this piece of gold: how versatile it actually is. It looks great worn casually, but it looks pretty awesome dressed up for something more formal, too. So, below are my two looks: Casual and Dressier…and I can’t decide which I like better!
