Black/Gold, Texas/Tea

As promised, I centered today's outfit around a pair of flats.

Today's shoes brought to you by: DVF!
Flats, Diane von Furstenberg

I decided to go with a "black and gold" theme and combined all of my favorite pieces in this color combo into one very coordinated outfit. 

Dress, DVF.  Bag, Ferragamo.  Necklace, F21.

This dress is one of my favorite pieces.  I've always been a fan of Diane von Furstenberg's iconic wrap dresses, and this a different (but just as flattering) spin on the classic piece.  This "faux-wrap" is a bit more youthful, especially in the vintage hearts print.

I've been obsessed with this teensy tiny Ferragamo bag since I first laid eyes on it.  It's only big enough to carry a credit card and my lipstick- not even a phone- so I only use it when my boyfriend comes along to tote my extras in his pockets.  

Bag, Ferragamo.

Anyone who knows me well will tell you that I have an unhealthy obsession with animal jewelry.  I'm lucky the folks at Forever 21 have decided to feed my addiction at affordable prices.  This spider and/or beetle necklace is a permanent wardrobe staple.

Necklace, Forever 21.

I'm not usually this color-coordinated, but being a little matchy-matchy every so often is good for the soul :)

Special thanks to Kim for taking these pics!
