Whoever said you can't mix gold and silver

probably doesn't believe in layering either. I've always loved big necklaces (especially chains) but when that epic Givenchy necklace hit the runway in Fall '08, I fell deep. I've been wearing my chains like this ever since, and I don't care if it's so last season.


I also like to throw that gold vintage chain into the mix, for just a touch of colour. I saw a post on The Couture Cookie recently about combining metallics, and in my best Obama imitation I exclaimed "yes we can!" ... and so I did.

To briefly answer a couple of questions I've been asked a lot lately: No, my Louboutin ankle boots are not comfortable (at least not for long periods of time) and Yes, I did just cut a full fringe of bangs, thanks for noticing! My hair is darker too but looks very blonde in photos.

Also, a big THANK YOU to everyone who advised me on how to clean my Hunter boots. I definitely have a lot of methods to test out, but at the same time now that I've been properly educated on "blooming" I might just leave them...

  8. Ooh, love the hair and the studded vest! Yeah, I think most CL's aren't actually that comfy, at least I've never tried on a pair I think I could walk around the whole day in (unless you count his flats... but who on earth would want to wear CL flats?). Great layering of the chains as well! I'd mix silver and gold if I could, but unfortunatley I don't like myself in gold...

  9. I mix gold and silver all the time! I have to. My wedding and engagement ring are gold. My daily watch is rose gold. Yet, I have a ton of jewelry that's silver. So, what's a girl to do but make it work? Love all the chains!

  20. i love mixing silver and gold; in fact my wedding band is 2 separate bands: on in hammered white gold and one in etched yellow gold.

    the bangs look great.

    re: canucks game - i can't believe that was you on the big screen, how fun. btw, kelly from option 8 and i met up at the game quickly too (we're friends and used to work together). small world.

    I think us fashion lady bloggers should get the canucks to sponsor us to a game and we dress up the most fashion forward CAnuck inspired wear. i think it'd be hot!

  31. oh very nice chic rocker look. The studded vest is unique cool. Definitely been noticing the popularity of the multichain necklace this season. I bought some myself recently. And I so envy girls who can handle wearing stylish mile high heels. I become a mammoth basketball player if I attempt to wear those heels that high

  32. This is my favorite post of yours. You are one o the few people who can wear leather leggings and get away with it. And those Louboutins are divine.

  33. Very nice outfit! I especially like your vest.
