Over the weekend, while meandering through a local artist and studio crawl, featuring predominantly muted and tame watercolors, portrait photographs, and some insanely hideous pig-shaped pieces of detritus and trash being disguised as sculpture, the filmmaker introduced me to a new vintage shop. One of my finds included this entwined, intermingling golden chain necklace, a sort of metallic menage-a-trois. Immediately I was attacted to the slinky texture, reminiscent of a python, and the hefty, meaty weight.
This goldenrod, ochre color is a favorite of mine, particularly for accessories; the deep navy and gold combination is a classic, adding some flash to what is considered generally a neutral tone. Thankfully, vintage bakelite bangles and other jewelry always came in an array of yellows and golds.
To add a further ochre, caramel, butter feel, ingredients as colors, I layered my new twisted chain necklace with this tried and true vintage piece, with large flat square beads, which always remind me of antique television screens.
Golden ochre shoes are a wardrobe essential, as they complement almost every neutral tone and many colors, black, white, gray, navy, brown, red, purple, blue. One of my colleagues wore an almost identical pair, which featured a wedge as opposed to the tapered heel, and agreed, pronouncing her goldenrod shoes a necessity.
