Glamorously Gold

It's been cool and mild in LA, but last week the sun just poured out and we hit a record, nearly 90 degrees! It seemed like the perfect time to pull out this micro-mini we recently found via thrift for, (you guessed it) a dollar!
There's something really beautiful about taking a shimmery, sexy bottom and pairing it with something a little rough.

This button down shirt had a thin, muslin-meets-linen finish to the fabric. It looked so pretty next to what we'd normally deem a "night out" skirt that we wanted to pair it up for a casual, but sexy daytime look.
The mini has a shimmery, gold thread finish, so we added gold bangles and a vintage purse, that just popped in the afternoon light.

We were en route to a shop Tanya discovered that always carries great jewelry, right on Abbot Kinney, when she decided to grab this gorgeous little purse that had hand sewn golden bead appliques!
It was just the right fit to contain a new pair of earrings or a little bracelet, should we stumble across something magical! (And a good shopping rule to keep from overspending is to take a tiny purse. Whatever fits in it, you can buy!)
That's all you need with a monochromatic look sometimes--one spot of print or color in your accessory...
And you're gorgeous!

Now, off to shop for some bling!
