Black x Gold

Sunday, August 31, 2014

It confuses me when I hear that gold jewelry is "too old" for peoples' tastes. I believe that speaks to the design of the piece more often than the metal. Personally, I gravitate towards gold jewelry because it makes for an eye-catching statement. It especially stands out against black, which we all know is my go-to color for any occasion.

Necklace: c/o Agapi Accessories
Dress: Brandy Melville (similar here)
Shoes: Zara (old)
Bag: ASOS (similar here)
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

Today's jewelry feature is a slight twist on my preference for gold, as my Agapi Accessories necklace is actually made of plastic. Surprised? I love that this necklace gives the illusion of metal while allowing you to wear it in comfort. This is especially important to me as a commuter student for the semester. I've paired the necklace here with an easy look that suits my on-the-go lifestyle. The lightweight dress and low-heeled booties allow for a day of comfort, while the necklace ensures that I am still making a style statement.

P.S. -- Great news! Daniel Wellington has been nice enough to extend the last day to get 15% off your watch purchase to September 30. Just use the promo code "christinalau" at checkout!


  1. I feel like gold makes the look more romantic and classy. I'm drawn to the warmer tones from jewelry! And I love the Agapi necklace on you! It's so pretty!
