Gold Leaf

I’ve been kind of obsessed with gold leaf lately…beyond my Gold Leaf Frame class next week (there are still a few spots left!) there’s something so pretty and feminine about an accessory or even office supply with a little shiny gold on it, reminiscent of gold leaf. Above I have some personal gold leaf in my life right now…and then below I have some things I’ve been ogling after…

1. I love this gold-stripe cork iPhone case from J. Crew, the gold is more subdued here. 2. I can’t talk about gold leaf-looking things without mentioning these Gold-Dipped flatware from Anthropologie, I’ve loved these utensils forever! They’d look pretty in my blog food photos, don’t you think? 3. The great thing about gold is it’s basically a neutral – I love this gold polka dots pillow from Society6, it will match any room in the house! 4. The Glitterati jumbo headband from ban.do adds the perfect spec of gold. 5. This heart of gold sweatshirt from Forever21 is from the girls department and oh so cute! 6. I love this J. Crew Factory metallic brocade mini, you could dress it up with a formal top or wear it casual with a white tee! Ps. this print comes in pants and shorts, too. 7. I saw these Tippy Pumps on Anthropologie‘s website a few weeks ago and LOVE them for spring/summer!

Anthro Shoes

I remember back in the day (I don’t know maybe around 2000, 2001?) going to the the Atrium Mall (RIP Atrium Mall) in Chestnut Hill with a specific mission to go to the giant Anthropologie, which was the first location in our area. The style back then was so new and unique and I remember always buying the most interesting finds to add to my wardrobe. Plus, the sale section at that location was always somewhat epic, taking up the entire back left corner of the store. Even though there are now Anthros everywhere and have become commonplace in local malls, I still love their overall aesthetic and certainly come out with unique finds every time I shop there.

I seem to always get lucky at the store and find my size in shoes in the sale section every time I look! Although now that I’ve shared that here, I hope I haven’t jinxed myself! I wore an awesome pair of Anthro sandals this weekend, for example, the black and white in the back is all beaded:

I was poking around their shoe department online over the weekend and found some really awesome spring shoes that I thought I’d share with you:
