This week's Fashion Forward is inspired by my love/hate relationship with gold. I've never truly been a 'fan' of gold and, since my teenage years, have rather adamantly insisted that I prefer to wear silver. In fact, I have actually shuddered when I've seen people wearing what I used to refer to as gaudy gold!
But, it seems that gold has finally won me over. It may be something to do with my love of vintage - floaty dresses in soft golds, and old fashioned teacups edged in gold, both scream of sophistication. Or it might have something to do with it's warmth - silver can seem a cold metal, whereas gold, especially in interiors has a wonderful warming quality. Or it might have something to do with these gorgeous and glamourous finds that have me dreaming of dinner parties (and the odd glass of champagne!)
