Accessorizing with Gold

 photo gold-3_zps59f66ec0.jpg
I'm quite partial to gold accessories of late, and love nothing better to brighten up a simple black outfit with splashes of gold. So here I showcase some new gold accessories as well as some old favourites.

The main player in this outfit is this gorgeous clutch sent to me by TK Maxx. I have had my eye on these Lulu Guinness Lips Clutch bags for so long, I'm very pleased to finally have one in my possession - and if you carry on to the bottom of this post, you can also have one in your possession too!

I was sent two beautiful pieces of gold vintage jewellery by new on-line boutique, Sweet & Spark. They have the most heavenly curated vintage pieces, it was very difficult to choose a favourite. I have been wearing these stacked up and also by themselves mostly every day since I received them.
