THE BLACK AND GOLD EDIT Featuring Lashings of McQueen-esque Inspiration
I've created a gorgeous little collection which you can shop via clicking the image above - if you'd rather go straight to the individual items featured above then see the links below. The inspiration for the collection stemmed from the Gold & Black McQueen skull cuff which I thought was amazing. The collection also features some other items not shown above, including jeans, more shoe options and more.
I normally find black and gold to be a difficult combination as it can look so very tacky. In my mind it's often bested only by leopard prints. But this collection features subtle gold tones, classy usage and opulent finishes. I really love all of the pieces, but especially the gorgeous stripe tunic jumper.
I'd love to know what you think of this format for posting as I am planning to trial more of these posts to minimise the number of individual product links. I'm also really open to suggestions of what to feature, so if you'd like me to write a post and create a collection of products for a specific purpose (eg budget eveningwear, perfect shift dresses, opulent flat shoes, etc) then please let me know in the comments.
