ReFashion #3


The Trend: Gold

gilded





Gucci jumpsuit $1,745
Marc jacobs jacket, $1,700
Gucci sandal, $1,190
Ashish waist skirt, $505
Elie Tahari metallic skirt, $398
Jimmy Choo studded handbag, $595
Gucci gold top, $566



Gold was seen often in Gucci's spring/summer line and the trend continues into fall with Chanel's Pre-Fall line, so I too decided to go for the gold with this next project. I found these oversize, unflattering gold pants (cut off at the knee below) at Goodwill and I turned them into a skirt with a ruffled hem. This one took some time to get just right, but it was well worth the effort because I am in love with it. Also, I wanted to call attention to the earrings that I'm wearing in the last pic. They are hand-made by my good friend Beverly Vergara. She creates and sells beautiful jewelry. Be on the look-out for her Etsy shop Tiernobella which is coming soon or if you have any current inquiries you can click her name to reach her facebook. Have a nice, long Memorial Day weekend everyone! -C.C.
