mon cheri black and gold

I love Paris. I mean, whats not to love about one of the most romantic cities in the world? And with French designers becoming more and more influential on street style, my fashion inner goddess was so happy to enjoy a stop over in Paris on a recent work trip. And while I spent a few cold days wandering through the city of love, it was the French interpretation of autumn/winter 13 metallics that I fell in love with (after all I left hubby at home! oh ha ha). Yes the French are having a black and gold moment. While initially I thought it was a bit dark and moody to be wearing as we head into the Australian summer months, Fridays weather in Melbourne proved perfect for it. Enter one investment buy (hello Isabel Marant Kalibo leather jacket!!) and one wear now fashion bargain in the way of this black and gold brocade skirt (heart it!!) While I initially purchased the skirt thinking of hot summer days with bare legs and a sexy black silk cami, I was surprisingly happy to cover up and pretend I was back in cold Paris sipping a glass of Rose in the hotel bar whilst reading Fifty Shades of Grey (yes that ALMOST sounds like a scene from the book!). So, black and gold. For now, for christmas. For life maybe. After all, the french do fabulous so well x K
