cheap(er) chic: soft gold accessories

I did a little window shopping today and I was blown away by two things--the amount of neon everywhere and the plethora of incredibly luxurious soft gold accessories! I love metallics and think the softer shades of it are great for summer and spring accessories. Unfortunately none of the items I admired earlier today are within my budget but I was pleased to find that there are some beautiful affordable options as well:


flats from d.v ($69), clutch from Arden B ($38), sandals from Old Navy ($19.50), headband from jennifer oullette ($65), orb bracelet from anthropologie ($38), belt from anthropologie ($28), sandals from musa ($191), clutch from j.crew( $78), portable media case from kate spade ($95)

I don't have much gold, but I always wanted to have more to accessorize. I love these shades of gold you have here, nothing gaudy - all very classy.

I would seriously purchase that jcrew clutch in just about every color they make it in...LOVE :-)

Love those gold flats (but the old navy sandals are more in line with my budget). I too am really liking the soft golds.

Yes! I love those gold sandals. I have worn my pair of simple soft gold sandles to death. They go with every bright summer dress with a pair of gold hoop earrings. Done! Even just to the park outfit so I'm not feeling frumpy. I might be off to Old Navy for a cheaper version thanks to you. Who would care about the sand at that price?

Ok I'm loving everything! Especially all those shoes. I want one of each. Those first ones. Oh be still my heart. I love a good bow on a shoe.

Ah, soft gold - that's the perfect shade. I keep looking for gold accessories, but they're always a bit bright for my taste. These are gorgeous.

Joyce said...

WOW now this is for sure having a golden day! I love the sandals.

Courtney said...

Ooh, I love this shade of gold. Usually I turn away from gold as I find it too "gawdy."

I would like that belt, those flats, and that bracelet, please.

Courtney said...

Great round up! Soft gold is the metallic I find myself falling for most frequently (ok, well, now that I think on it, in the past two years, bronze has been creeping up towards the "most favorite" spot, but I still carry a flame for soft golds too.)
