LOOK OF THE DAY: CASUAL BUT SMART CLASSIC TAUPE, BLACK AND GOLD


Happy Monday
, Lovelies!

Wanted to do a quick Look of the Day post of a casual, but smart taupe and black look that I sported at a casual Oscar party last weekend, which was super fun! I am a huge fan of taupes these days in design, fashion, home decor and even make-up!

My complete look, from head to toe, was around $115 and consisted of some great buys, like my comfortable black pumps, which I found at It's A Wrap for only $10, a store that sells clothing and accessories used in film and on TV and worn by the stars and actors. Since things have been used before, but are still in great condition, you can find some designer things at a really great price!

I took a few pictures from the Oscar party that I shared in my Wordless Wednesday last week, via my instagram pictures, but thought I'd share them in this post too!

She had the most amazing spread of hot and cold appetizers and snacks, and our friend Kimberly made this incredible Red Carpet Fizz cocktail, it was delish! We all filled out our Oscar ballots too, and then, switched around the room to see who got the most right as we watched the show, and we all had a great time! :)


Hope you all have a great start to the week, and enjoyed your weekend! I'm heading out of town, and am really excited about my trip, which I'll be sure to document on my instagram and then here on my blog once I return in a Wordless Wednesday!

That said, I will still have new a variety of posts here, as usual, while I'm gone! So, don't worry, keep checking back for more fun finds and goodies!

    1. You know what is funny...growing up, my mother always wore gold accessories, and I always said I wasn't' a big fan for myself, but I liked it on her, then, the older I got I started to love it, who knew! :)

    1. Why, thank you! I do too! I bought it in grey and black too since they were on sale and that is the ruched sleeved top style I like...went back to see if they had more, would love one in white, but alas, they were gone! I'll keep an eye out and let you know if I find more or they get more in stock! :)
