joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I am big fan of Black and Gold. These two colors work so well for me no matter what and they are definitely my go-to colors .

The top worked well with my skirt and when I look at it, this actually seems like a dress to me but it actually really is a two-piece outfit. I wore this since I was inspired by a 30’s or 40’s dress that I found online and got inspired by the mix of the details.

It was a hmmmph day Wednesday weekday and friends and I planned to catch Tropic Thunder which was seriously a feel-good movie and was sheer genius! What more can you ask for in a comedy? It had all the elements:

Ben Stiller + Robert Downy Jr. (who rocked) + Jack Black + Matthew McConaughey + Tom Cruise

I got a coral Egyptian necklace which I cannot wait to wear today.

I actually loved the combination! This is a fab duo of colors indeed.

Anyway, I saw this on an article on In Style magazine and i loved it since it was about my outfit:

It’s all about GOLD & BLACK

One’s bright, the other inky: This fall, they’re great alone or together.

Fashion editors love the contrast of this chic duo. Their helpful golden rule: The lighter the skin tone, the darker the metal should be. Another tip: Since our eyes are attracted to anything shiny, you’ll want to avoid 24k trousers, for example if you have an ample rear. Instead, try an accent piece.
