As I was packing up bags to head over to Scotland this Christmas I realised there is definitely one colour combo I’ve been favouring for accessories this year. While I’ve always loved black paired with gold (after all, they are the colours of Chanel!) it seems to have been the theme of 2014 – starting with the little Kurt Geiger bag I got for Christmas last year (Santa’s a Frillseeker fan) and continuing on with my favourite winter coat.
It’s a luxe and classic pairing that demands a red lip and overuse of the word fabulous - making it obviously right up my alley. Seriously, how good does that Chanel Coco Noir bottle look? The woodsy oriental scent is also a winner – check out my review.
My two favourite pairs of boots this winter have been black with gold hardware: the bikers were picked up for a song in H&M with the zippered pair coming from Graham Shoes on Exchequer Street (they’re by Vagabond). Both should still be in shops now along with this big, slouchy weekend bag, also from H&M (it’s on the website here but unfortunately we can’t seem to shop online in Ireland yet – all the more reason to pop into the gorgeous and massive new flagship store on Dublin’s College Green.)
Are you a fan of this colour combination?
