Trend Alert - Black and Gold Minis

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!! I've had such an interesting week. Can't complain at all, but I'm sort of ready for the weekend ;-) I'm trying to stay on top of any trends that I can spot so that I can pass them on to you all....my lovely readers. A new red carpet favorite combo is the black and gold combo mini dress.

The combination is eye catching and it perfectly ushers in the cool weather. It can be done in so many ways...as you'll see below. I prefer a black background with pops of gold but I admire a chick who can also rock a gold garment to the max.


On the left, Lala Vasquez is dazzling in her mini at
at the LA Confidential Magazine’s Cover party back in August. Jessica Alba is sexy at the Machete premiere in Los Angeles.





Alexis Bledel rocked gold/bronze with black accessories
at a W magazine party at Saks Fifth Avenue earlier this week. I love the form fitting tulip skirt..but the ruffles are a bit much for me.



Now, if you're loving this trend, check out these lovelies below.

Milly Vivi Combo Dress $385.00 http://www.shopbop.com/

Yea, I didn't realize that I only saved the back....well the front looks just like the back anyways. I love this little mini and I would rock it just like the pic: thick black tights and booties.




Golden Tier Dress $24.80 http://www.forever21.com/

A great affordable find for this cute little number. It gets the red carpet nod from me. But we'll pair our dress with some platform pumps ;-)






Golden Stripe Sequin Dress
$34.00 (on sale) http://www.nastygal.com/

A cute little number but I'm afraid there wouldn't be a lot of give and take in that dress...if you know what I mean.





ASOS Tribal Embellished Shift Dress
$47.18 (on sale) http://www.asos.com/

The embellishments on this shift make a big statement. I like the tribal inspired design. I wonder if it's heavy....it looks heavy.






Maurie/Eve Chain Reaction Dress
$111.00 (on sale) http://www.revolveclothing.com/

Don't worry about the horizontal stripes here. The alternating colors help to streamline your figure. Whew, those panels are bright!






Motel Bead Lines Knitted Dress
$67.40 http://www.asos.com/

If the combo is a little too much for you, go with a tried and true black mini with minimal gold accents like the dress above.

Cute selections...but black and gold is a little too Hollyweird for me.
