Gold Makes a Comeback

After having been out of fashion for most of my adolescence, I find there is something alluring about gold and brassy metallics these days, especially when mixed with modern textures or when found in totally unexpected objects. It suddenly seems like gold and tortoise chain link combinations are en vogue and gold paperclips, scissors, and staplers are the epitome of cool when it comes to office supplies.

One place gold seems to be showing up over and over is my makeup bag from the Gold handled bargain makeup brushes I picked up from Sonia Kashuk’s Target collection to the cult classic Touche Eclat pen from YSL. Even lipstick cases encrusted in gold are cool again with a Tory Burch or YSL lip collection case seeming to be a staple in blog posts and instagrams for instant chic.
