Black and Gold

I stopped using the scales a long time ago, and instead I try on,  once a month,  this black skirt that fits like a glove. The idea is to check size rather than weight, and forget about the numbers... 

Hace tiempo que dejé de usar la báscula para pesarme y en su lugar, me pruebo una vez a mes esta falda negra que se ajusta como un guante. La idea es controlar el volumen en lugar del peso y olvidarse de los números...

Today,  I am wearing black and gold. I have added  80s golden earring clips to  the shoes.

Hoy me he vestido de negro y oro. Les he puesto unos pendientes de clip dorados  de los años 80 a los zapatos.

Estás guapísima y elegantísima. Me gusta todo lo que llevas: el collar,el bolso, pendientes y todo.
Ah, y yo también sé cómo ando de peso por una falda.

what a fun outfit, slightly baroque, don't you think with all the gold details and the tassel? speaking of which, tassels are my newest obsession, too (I don't have any yet,though) I agree that for many women, the scales aren't a good indicator of general well-being.

Pearl Westwood dijo...

What a great idea to clip the earrings to the shoes, it looks amazing!! Love the tassle bag too, beautiful as always my dear xx

Wow, those look like honking big earrings from the 80's! Love those shoes too--I admire you for not getting on the scale~Paula

Comtesse de ferveur dijo...

Those earrings look just fab and really lift the shoes - I love the combination of black and gold! You look absolutely stunning. Have a wonderful weekend! xxxxx Comtesse xxxxx

Great idea! I think that's what pencil skirts are for...

Love your accessorizing as usual- the tassels and beads are gorgeous.

Colleen dijo...

You are a stunning woman! I think you are just beautiful! I like how this outfit is so dramatic and that necklace is amazing!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Penny Dreadful dijo...

I agree Sacramento, I haven't used scales in years. I know well enough if I am healthy or not, but scales only make people feel bad x

This is so chic and classy! I always love your large earrings...are they heavy or lightweight? They are such fun! You look very powerful in this outfit....

Terri dijo...

What a great approach--avoid the scale and let the clothing tell you!

The entire outfit is lovely, but I especially like the detail of the tassel on the purse. And, I am taking note of the necklace. I have one like it I haven't known quite how to wear.

THE-LOUDMOUTH dijo...

I love your accessories, especially those earrings! :) I'm trying to only weigh myself once a month -- it's tough to resist.

I love the curtain-like tassel you have on your clutch. Gorgeous outfit!

Jane dijo...

Hola, jejeje yo sigo fiel a la báscula pero tengo unos pantalones prueba, si me los puedo poner es que estoy bien, ahora mismo nanai,lo voy a mencionar como punto de inspiración para adelgazar en una entrada que preparo para nuestro blog de dietas etc, te queda como un guante y estás fantástica, besos

Rebeccak dijo...

Oh I totally agree - numbers on the scale are never a good thing to go by!

I also love the idea of putting clip-on earings on your shoes - awesome.

"La MoDe" c'est un secret dijo...

Ole! Eres super elegante!! Me encanta este traje - te queda super bien el blanco y negro con toques magica de oro xxx

The Elegant Bohemian dijo...

Sacramento...I LOVE this, but of course! It features black! :) The necklace, the earrings...you show that black is anything but basic or boring. I never weigh myself either. After years of being imprisoned by angst over my weight and working in the weight loss industry, I ditched the scales completely. My clothes tell me when I need to be reeled back in. LOVE you as always!!! ~Serene

The student's guide to affordable luxury dijo...

You look amazing! Black and gold is an excellent combination in my opinion. And that bag is great!

Luzhilda dijo...

Vanessa dijo...

Another awesome outfit! Usually I like more colorful ensembles, but this mix of gold really livens up the black and just makes it all look so elegant and yet so funky! you're the best at that combination, by the way!
And - seriously! Sex and the City 2 was THE WORST! Just terrible (regarding your comment on my blog!)

Lidia dijo...

Me encanta la combinación oro negro.

Marta dijo...

Welcome the goddess of the moon and the night,

You look so beautiful, stylish and fabulous. That skirt gives you killer curves and I want all your jewellery.
You are amazing, my dear friend. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Kelly-marie dijo...

You always look so incredibly glamourous, I LOVE this outfit so much. I have stopped weighing myself too, so much better to have some 'inspiration' pieces in the closet and it's the best feeling in the world when they finally fit you! :) xxxxx

I do the same thing, I never weight myself, instead I check how the clothes look on me and I don't worry about pounds at all. It can be stressful that way.
Love the combination of fabrics and color, that clutch is gorgeous.
Have a great day, hugs ^ _ ^

surfvintage dijo...

jajajaaj yo hago lo mismo! pero con unos vaqueros! Muy guapa! qué bien llevas los dorados hija!

Arash Mazinani dijo...

I love the use of black and gold. It's also wise that you go off size as opposed to weight, you should always judge by how you look and whether or not you're happy with that as opposed to going purely off the scales.

Me encantaaaaa la combinación negro + dorado. Es taaaaaan sofisticada. Es ponértela y sentirte eleagnte y misteriosa al instante!

Toda la razón, la báscula es muy engañosa... vida sana y una misma ya va viendo si hay q esforzarse en hacer más ejercicio o no comer tanto dulce...

París GENIAL!!! as always!
Es mi 4º vez, pero hacía 7 o 8 años q no la visitaba. me ha dejado tan enamorada como la última vez.
Si alguna vez me pierdo, buscarme en 2 sitios: París y Londres ;-)

Feliz semana, guapa,

Seriously, wow!!! I'm actually speechless at how you're rocking this look!
The clutch bag and rope/tassle detailing is too awesome for words!

I also do that thing where you can clip a large corsage to a plain pair of peep toes heels to give it more va va voom!

Love! Is there anything as great as a great fitting black pencil skirt? I've yet to find it. My figure doesn't seem to like standard measurements, so I think I'm going to have to make one!

Love,

The shoe clips are dalrling. I like the idea of just trying on clothes and not paying attention to the size. Lots of clothing isn't sized correctly. I too use tassles, but as belts.
