All In The Details

No matter where you are in the world, it is hard to deny the power of gold. Now I am not referring to the blood battles over the precious stone, or the dangerous mines in which it is found, but rather the power in fashion that it wields.

This week’s Fashionista truly caught my eye as I passed by her on the street, I mean quite literally it was hard not to notice her. She had on her wrist this metallic, cuff bracelet that upon closer examination, was a perfect juxtaposition of black and shiny gold triangles. She topped off this sparkling look with teardrop earrings, that were also embedded with fine black, gold and white crystals. To say the least, this Fashionista definitely worked it and gave off an air of chic hard to duplicate.

She towered over me in slick, sandal wedges, adding to the overall powerful-feel she commanded and left me in awe.  I was especially impressed with her choice to wear pants in the middle of this scorching Texas summer but upon closer examination, I found her Michael Kors skinny jeans to be made from this stretchy cotton/spandex material and thus very breathable.

Coco Chanel once remarked, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, and what is happening.” If you ask me, fashion is gold: it is the bare mineral from which we build ourselves up upon. It is the thing that separates us from being dull or lackluster, it is a reign on freedom.
