GOLD is Sooo In....

Hey you guys, how are you all?? 


My week has been SO stressful, trying to book a place in NYC & getting some airfare amongst other things! But let's get back to the fun stuff.....
 
I LOVE GOLD. BUT, I used to HATE it. Well, when I was in my early 20's I'd only wear silver. Back in my day I used to see gold as LOUD & not-so-classy, but not anymore! In fact, I started wearing gold around the same time Sara Jessica Parker appeared on SATC wearing her gold horseshoe necklace!!! She inspired me.


Now we see it all over... GOLD is in everything these days from home decor, jewelry, wallpaper, artwork & more! In fact it's one of the key colors I use in my paintings on Cocoa & Hearts!


So, it's safe to say, GOLD is very much in trend & I now own more gold than silver jewelry, who knew?!? Some of my favorite gold jewelry this season is by Vince Camuto. Have you seen his newest pieces?!? Oh my gosh! It's super nice & super affordable too!!


 Also, since GOLD is soooo in trend.... I decided it was time to step it up a notch & make some gold LOVE prints as well! Here's another peek!


I briefly mentioned the prints last week & have already received many inquiries & phone calls asking when they'll be available!!! They're HOT! 



Coming soon to Made By Girl.




So what do you think....is Gold hot or not??

  2. Totally agree with you, I love gold. But as you, I used to hate it, in fact my wedding ring is in white gold. But for the last couple of years I've been enjoying it a lot!

  9. Yes! I love gold. I remember declaring when I was 10 that I would never wear gold. It didn't take me long to turn around. And I adore that ring!! xoxo

  12. I use to think the same thing!! Now I think silver looks old and dated!

  13. Gold and brass it is all coming back! I was just like you... it was only silver for me, gold was just old school and kind of tacky! Now I can't get enough of it in home decor or fashion! Love the new prints! And the coco and heart piece... just awesome!

  18. I love gold with certain things– just depends on the outfit. I always love gold jewelry in the summer when I have a nice tan!

  19. Same here, gold was yuck to me from about 1985 to about 2 years ago. I decided, "I should be wearing gold now" but it was hard to find jewels. Now....it's really in and alot easier. Michael Kors has been on the gold trend for awhile now and has awesome things in gold.

  20. Really cute pieces ! Love the crystal ring and the gold link bracelet !! I only wear gold as well but used to think the same thing you did and only wore silver...funny how things change !

  21. Funny - I just posted today about a gold and snakeskin Pentax camera I thought was FABULOUS. Gold never goes out of style in my world. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOVE gold! I'm in the same boat - totally loved silver and thought gold was "old" - worn by those less fashionable, but I'm obsessed with gold now. I definitely own more gold than silver (or "white gold"). Love your new print!

  23. Oh! I'm so excited to see that there is a gold LOVE print! I need one of those!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Totally heart gold! I remember thinking that silver was the way to go when I was growing up because that's what everyone thought was cool, but then I realized I really like gold better. Then my brother got me a gold tiffany necklace for my sweet 16 & that's sealed the deal ever since!

  25. I agree with the gold, I love it! I really love your gold "love" print as well!

  28. Gold ... LOVE IT!! I was like you, I used to hate it. But I've brought back the love and just in time for my wedding 2 weekends ago. Rocked a vintage gold watch (was my grandmothers) and new gold/pearl earings. :) So happy I didn't go with the traditional white gold/silver.

  32. Love your new gold print. Think it's my favorite yet!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I smiled reading your post because I use to be the exact same way.. I turned my nose up to gold and would only wear white gold, silver, or platinum.. now however I am slowly getting into the gold myself and with my Italian skin it looks so luxe and I get lots of compliments.. so crazy

    ReplyDelete
  34. Gold is definitely in! I've always loved gold, mostly because I think it compliments my skin tone better than silver.

    I'm pretty new to your blog and I LOVE your artwork! Where do you get your inpsiration?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi! I've been a reader for a long time, but I don't think I've ever commented before... I just wanted to say that I LOVE your paintings and I always admire your mix of metallics with other colors. I'm like gold more and more myself : )

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jen, you can totally stay with me in NY if you help me figure out wall colors for my maset bedroom and closet! I have lots of gold, too, and used to be silver-only.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Gold is TOTALLY hot!! I can't wait to get one of your gold ''LOVE'' prints!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hear you! I used to only wear silver, but now I'm really loving all things gold. They're still showy - but that's sort of the point!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I agree! When I was younger I only associated gold with bad estate jewelry and kind of tacky. But now I can't get enough of it. In fact right before I saw this post I painted a metal bar table gold. It's funny how a little time can change your mind!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I used to not be a huge fan of gold either, but I'm warming up to it lately -- especially as an accessory! I'm also getting used to the idea of mixed metals!

    I LOVE your paintings -- they're amazing!

  41. i have always like my skin tone with gold jewelry on it - i think people's skin dictates one or the other, really. but i tried not to like it. i did the silver thing. but i was just kidding myself really. now, set with my gold foil paint, I try to spruce up everything from side tables to picture frames with it.

    btdubs - love the VC stuff. must find now!

  46. Love your gold! I just put up my first gold accents and I'm still looking at it thinking, "Do I really like that?" I bet I'll love it in a couple weeks! Just takes some getting used to.

  48. HOT!! I totally agree, used to be anti-gold...what were we thinking?!
    I still love white gold for my wedding ring, but everything else...bring on the yellow gold.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have always loved gold, and really have never worn silver. gold's much better with my skin tone. I don't like platinum or white gold either, although from time to time, I can rock with rose gold.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My collection of gold pieces is growing and I'm not stopping! Rings, bracelets, shoes, belt....want.it.all. Happy weekend to you! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  51. The gold print is gorgeous! I had a stressful week also, but not quite as exciting as yours :) This gold is inspiring to do some new "stunning" pieces, even if they are paper.

    Have a great weekend :)

  67. I was the same way....I would never wear gold and thought it was a little tacky. Now it is mostly what I wear! I definitely see it coming back in decor as well. Take a look at The London Hotel in West Hollywood with all the beautiful gold details!(http://www.oyster.com/los-angeles/hotels/the-london-west-hollywood/photos/restaurants-bars-bel-age-v493465/)

    I'm glad people are embracing gold now, I love it!


    peace & love,
