If you know me at all, you know I love my gold. Gold chains, gold rings, gold watch, all at once, or I can’t function. Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the holiday season has officially begun which means there’s even more of a reason to deck yourself out in head-to-toe gold.
My personal obsession started at a young age when my Greek and Italian relatives would send gifts from the Old Country, usually in the form of huge mafia chains and gangster crosses. My mom would hide them so I couldn’t wear everything at once, but I eventually got tall enough to snag them from their high shelf hiding place. Now, whether it’s real or costume, too much is never enough. From sequined sweaters to vintage rings from the flea market, it’s really easy to make this trend your own. And to get you started, I chose a few of my favorite pieces for you below. Happy holidays!
