Look of the Day:Black and Gold








Happy Monday, loves!
I must confess, I still can't get over the gold theme. Gold warms me up and gives me that luxurious feel, so I totally love it! Remember my gold dress for the New Year's party and that super shiny fabric? Well, on Saturday I had (yet) another party to attend and I was in desperate need of a new outfit! Since I'm my own designer and a sewing addict, I walked into my studio for inspiration and found scraps of that gold fabric sitting on the table, and I thought: "I can't throw away gold..." and decided to make a blouse using bits of that golden treasure. I was ecstatic to put myself into recycling mood again, as I hate to throw away anything from my studio. And, I scored a new jacket from a consignment store! I rarely shop at such places, but this time I was truly lucky!! I found this custom-made, real snake skin blazer in shiny black, especially that the price was much lower than anticipated, I couldn't resist it!! And I totally love it!  
Can't wait to hear your thoughts on my outfit.

Have you scored any bargains lately which totally blew your mind away?
