Deborah: I was at the hairdresser the other day when I complimented my stylist on her new sandals and somehow got into this great conversation about gold sandals and how they are the perfect summer shoe.
After chatting about how much we loved rich metallic shoes I realized that pretty much all my summer sandals were gold!
So I went home and counted. 8 pairs out 12 pairs that I own are gold.
I asked JoJami, “Is it just me or do you like gold?” Turns out, she has a few pairs herself. Why so many?
1. Gold is a Fab Neutral - It goes with everything. While black can be harsh, white tacky and brown too earthy, gold is perfect.
2. Gold matches my skin- I’m warm. In the world of color analysis I’m considered a spring so gold works well with my coloring. The gold flows with my fair golden hair and skin giving my legs a nice lean line. Even if you are not warm skinned, anyone with even hint of a tan looks fab in gold.
3. Gold looks rich and elegant- no matter how summery and chic I look in stylish shorts or a sundress, I always feel more elegant with gold shoes. They add that touch of class.
Will I buy more gold? Yes, I’ll keep going for the gold. Here are a few new gold sandals JoJami and I found online that we would love to add to our collections. How about you?
