I am seeing this black and gold thing everywhere and it intrigues me. I had to buy this. Because, why not. I wore it on New Years Eve.
And it definitely has me thinking about this obvious trend. I get it: "The Great Gatsby" has inspired an art deco resurgence. For the record I liked art deco before it was cool! Actually, I mostly liked art deco jewelry. Leave it to Leo DiCaprio to bring back 20's opulence during a recession.
So, it's not surprising that I'm seeing this pop up everywhere: pinterest, the blogsophere, the red carpet, wedding magazines and even in drug store nail polish displays. But will this trend have any sort of longevity? It's forcing me to reconsider gold. I thought gold was long since gone, by way of the 90's, along with brass fixtures and jewel-toned carpeting. But like other recent trends (leggings, off one shoulder shirts, and tapered leg jeans) it is back but better. Still, I can't help but be a little reluctant to embrace this trend in home decor, because I'm not convinced it has staying power. I'm leaning a little more traditional these days (gasp, at 30+ I might finally be channeling my mother.)
Still, with my love of black I can't help but appreciate these recent Pinterest Picks.
Oh, and mini rant. I hate it when pinterest images don't seem to link to the original. It's not cool to not give credit to the originators. Come on pinterest pinners! Get your acts together! I try to attribute all photos I share on here to the original source IF I can find it. If not, by default, I give the pin link.
I could not find the above image on that blog link, so here is the pin link: Pinterest
