Brocade and Gold

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! It's really hard to believe that the holidays are already over, as both Christmas and the New Year passed in the blink of an eye! Even though the holidays are over, I'm still wearing some of my plaids and glittery items, including this lovely brocade top from J. Crew. While it might be a little depressing to think about the passing of the holidays, not to mention going back to work soon, one thing that always cheers me up is a little "retail therapy", especially when the sales are so good! While I purchased this particular top a couple weeks before the holidays, it's now 25% off along with a lot of other wonderful items at J. Crew. I'm trying to show some restraint in purchasing new clothing items but the sales are so tempting that it's hard to resist! I think one of my resolutions for the New Year should definitely be to shop my closet more and enjoy the things that I already own!

One of the things that I love about this top is how rich and sumptuous it looks! In fact, my father-in-law even said that the fabric looked like something straight out of Versailles! To play on this, I paired the top with some glittery accessories, such as my gold glitter flats (a holiday favorite!), my pink turban knot headband (I can't get enough of these lately!), and my new gold earrings from Zenzii. While the earrings are glittery and gold, they definitely won't break the bank and you can save an extra 25% off of them and your purchased from Zenzii by using code Katie25. I will definitely be wearing them, along with all of my other accessories, a lot in the New Year!

  1. What a fun top! I like the earrings and gold shoes with it and the jeans dress it down nicely! :) I have bought a few things in the post Christmas sales but not too much yet!

    Hope that the new year and new decade are starting great for you! :)
