Black & Gold

Black and gold is one of those classic color combinations, just like black and white. (And I love combining all three. So chic.)

When Amber announced her next virtual blogger party (otherwise known as a link-up) was all about SHOES, I knew I was for sure participating. And I knew exactly which pair I would be building my outfit around. (PS- Did I just make up blogger party?!)

These Sam Edelman shoes are to die for. Black velvet plus lots of gold stones and studs?? Sign me up!

These pretty pumps don’t exactly scream “casual” so I decided to style an outfit for going out. I have a habit of gravitating towards black when headed out after-dark which makes this the perfect ensemble for a night on the town!

Embellished Jacket: Bellatrix (similar style!)
Long-Sleeve Sequin Tee: J.Crew
Black Jeans: BDG
Pumps: Sam Edelman Roza
Necklace: BaubleBar
Bracelets: Sequin NYC, Bauble Bar, J.Crew, Forever 21 (similar)
Ring: Kate Spade
iPhone cover: Kate Spade (similar styles that are super cute – 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5)
Gold Phone: Native Union (similar – 1/2 the price!)
Nails: Essie Smokin Hot (one of my favorite Winter colors!)

My newest phone outfit and matching pop phone complemented this look perfectly so I decided to use them as fun little props. 🙂

    I agree with previous posters (as in people not what gets hung on walls), terrific blend of textures and fabrics and colors. The shoes are just this side of a weapon – not good for wearing to an airport.

    I like the textured combination- especially loving your top and heels! I’ve seen those phones in FutureShop and actually thought they were a great idea.
