Gold Inspired

We all know that I’m like a kid in a candy store when it comes to anything with a little glitz…and nothing says glitz like gold baby! As we get closer to the holiday party seasonΒ  glitz is at the forefront of my fashion focused brain even more than usual. I’m hoping that the hubs can pull himself away from work and studying, so we can attend at least a few holiday events this year. Wouldn’t one of these little gold frocks be just perfect for a holiday cocktail affair?

Do you have any fun parties to attend in the upcoming season or is it still too early for that kind of talk? If you’re the kind of person that groans over Christmas decorations hitting the shelves even before Halloween is over…then I have a fall image for you. Remember this photo of the dude?

Well, I decided to enter it into Gap Casting Call contest. I would heart you to the moon and back if you would pop over there and vote for him. It’s alright if you want to make fun of me…My bestie already did. HA! Ok, ya’ll have a beautiful weekend. I’m off to New York to dance my arse off at a wedding!

    Awww, lookit the little guy with his pumpkin! You’ll be happy to know that I popped over and voted for him! I am in love with fall, and while I used to resent seeing Christmas decor out before Halloween is even over, I don’t mind so much now. Maybe because I also love winter now too!

    We must be on the same wavelength–I just got a fun dress at Sway and Cake in Seattle, and it’s a champagne gold velvet by Myne. Found a snap of it at Polyvore: . Love your picks! And your adorable pumpkin!

    When I was a teenager, I totally hated gold. Gold jewelry, gold makeup, and especially gold, shimmery fabric. But all of the sudden, in my twenties, I’m kind of a fan. I’ve even been allowing gold to creep into my crafts.

    Your little guy is SO cute! His chubby cheeks are too much. I voted for the Dude!

    I’m actually looking forward to a couple of holiday parties this year, which, if you knew how scrooge-like I usually am, you might find surprising! It can be fun to have event to bust out the formal-wear for, though.
