Go for Gold!!

Gold is an obvious investment and this Mulberry Mabel bag, £876 from Net-A-Porter, is a seriously blingly investment item, if you can afford to splash the cash. Gold, silver or bronze handbags never go out of fashion and are ideal for this time of the year and the height of summer, to really lift an outfit. Earlier this year, I bought this J for Jasper Conran gold leather bag for £38. I've only just started using it, as it really lifts an outfit in the gloomy wet and cold weather. It will also be ideal for trips out in summer too, with vintage summer dresses.

Do you go for gold with your accessories this season?

I am normally not a fan of gold, but I suddenly like old gold.. kind of bronzed kind of gold..

SO the last bag in the pic is ideal :D

Hi fabulously broke-yes, I also like a more subtle gold, thanks!

Your bag is very pretty, and ideal for banishing a bit of winter gloom. I live on the Gold Coast so you'd think I'd have lots of gold accessories, but I overdosed on them a few years ago and not ready to go back yet.

How I love your bag, my dear!!!
I've been looking for a metallic bag, that isn't too shiny if you know what I mean. I was thinking of a silver gray bag, I'm hopping to see one on sale maybe....

Have a gorgeous and Happy New Year

xoxo

Winnie said...

I like subtle gold too but sometimes there is an inexplicable need for an outrageously blingy gold bag...!

Hi Sharon Rose,

I like the golden colour in an evening bag and a clutch rather, but your bag fantastic. :)I feel...I am pale to the gold colour. BUT: your skin with gold colour combination is perfect.

I just acquired a silver clutch and I'm not sure about it. Your gold bag looks great. You will have to take a photo with one of your outfits so I can get some inspiration.

I always approve of gold!

atelier said...

definitely I can't. But I am currently saving for the Bayswater, I love that bag! I would buy in gold only if I'd be a lot of money, because in 2 years it would be totally out... Happy New Year;)

I'm dying to try something over-the-top, like gold shoes, stockings, skirt, and accessories ;) This is definitely a year for gold -- ironic since the economy is in the drains!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi tara-yes, the right piece or pieces can really jazz up an outfit!!
