Ever since seeing the gilded bash hosted by Rue Magazine for their 2nd anniversary I’ve been craving a little piece of the prize for myself (what else calls to mind winning quite like this carat-ed color?).  While the baroque trend is big for this fall, I like my golds when paired with things a bit simpler.  Picture the above flashy oxfords with a simple t-shirt dress, or those amazing jacquard shorts with just a basic chambray shirt?  Take it from Kate Spade (and the necklace shown above), you’ll be as good as gold.
