Golden Dress, how to Style? & Fancy Friday linkup

golden dress

For the series The thrifty Six it was my turn to choose a theme, a few months ago, and I wanted to show this dress again so I chose Fools Gold. I’m having so much trouble styling this golden dress. Or maybe it’s just that this dress doesn’t suit me. But I like it so much. Why is this dress working against me so much? Please tell me…

  • I am very sorry that I haven’t been posting and commenting reguarly for the last three weeks. I had to make some changes because of my health. If you want to know more you can email me, but for now I just leave it like that here on the blog. I am going to post less, only the Friday’s and my monthly series. And sometimes another post if I feel like it, but I stopped with Throwback Tuesday. Not because I want to, I need to. We all treasure our blogs and we all are very passionate about it. But I have to think about my health.

Why do I want to wear a golden dress!

white blazer and white boots outfit

I’ve always loved gold. Quite early in puberty, I preferred wearing gold jewelry to silver. Silver has never been my thing. I also love clothes with gold in it, or a gold jacket or cardigan or something like that. You may know my golden ankle boots, I love them. I also once had golden sneakers and a gold colored jacket. Fantastic!

So this dress immediately attracted me. Although I have to say that I would have liked a little more gold thread in it, in real it is also a bit more gold then it showes in the photos. And I love everything about this dress, the sleeves, the neckline, the lenght. But then the styling part!

How to wear a golden dress?

I had already worn this golden dress here with a jacket with gold thread in it. And those golden ankle boots. I think it’s a nice outfit, but it’s just not it. So I tried it this time with a off white blazer and my beloved white boots. I don’t think it looks great. In my eyes it’s okay.

The boots are fabulous, they look great underneath. But the blazer, no I don’t believe in it. I’ll just keep trying with this golden dress, going to wear it again with white sneakers. Or perhaps wear it as a skirt with  a golden top over it? Maybe I’ll say yes(to the golden dress) to that!

The necklace gives me a sort of 70s feel, love it on a v-neck top or dress. And I adore this white statement ring. I like to pop out my sleeves underneath a blazer or cardigan. The clutch is a very old one I bought in Hastings at New Look. I want to go to Hastings!! Sorry, missing the UK a lot!

    I think you styled the dress well with the blazer – you look terrific!
    I am sorry to hear your health is causing you to step back from what you love. Your health is the #1 priority and I hope that whatever has happened will get better and that you can get back to doing what you love!
    Take care my friend!

    I love the look you’ve created, such a pretty dress. I hope that a slight slowing up will give you the opportunity to rest and recover Nancy. I will continue to enjoy your postings and really hope that you will soon be feeling stronger again.

    I completely understand why you have to pull back Nancy. I remember you saying on Insta that you were ending the link up but glad I can still see your looks here. Praying for peace in your heart as you navigate through this difficult time. I adore this dress and the white pieces you paired with it. Now I want a pair of white boots!

    This is a beautiful dress on you and I like the blazer with it actually! Maybe it’s the photos you don’t like? I find my metallic pieces don’t show in photos like they do in real life, they always look a bit underwhelming in photos!

    Thanks for the link up.

    Hope you are having a great week 🙂 Don’t feel bad about needing some time off from the blog – health is always more important!

    I like the gold dress with white. With a dress like this I think it’s best to let it shine – no need for over complicated styling. It looks good! Take care of yourself, we won’t be going anywhere and you can do more blog posts when you feel better.

    Such a pretty dress! I love gold too and prefer it over silver – in clothes and jewelry. I think the ladies thst are more “:cool toned” like the silver or that it is more complimentary with skin tone and hair. Love it with the boots!

    I totally understand you’re taking a step bag from blogging. It really can be hard work, even if we’re in the best of healths. Do take all the time you need, Nancy. Meanwhile, I’m sending hugs!
    As for your gold dress, I do understand your dilemma. I would find it hard to style as well. Your white boots are magnificent, though. I’d say, keep on trying, it’s often a case of trial and error until you get something right! xxx

    Love the way you styled this metallic dress with white and gold accessories! The dress is a great versatile cut that lends itself to lots of different stylings. Hope your health improves with rest. Managing a blog is a lot of work, so continuing what you love at a slower pace seem like a great solution. Have a good weekend and thanks for the link up!

    I’m so sorry to hear that you are experiencing health issues. But I am glad you have made the choice to slow down on blogging during this time. It takes a LOT to put out a post, and I’m not sure other people realize that. In terms of the gold dress, I really like it with the white accessories and wonder if black might look good, too. You have so many cool boots to choose from and I’ll bet several of them would look amazing! Know that we are all thinking of you and wishing you well. We’ll be thrilled to see whatever posts you feel like putting up.

    Nancy, I think that this white blazer works well with your golden dress especially with those bold gold buttons. And it’s perfectly fine to reassess life’s priorities every once in awhile and take a step back, whether temporarily or permanently as needed to bring our lives back into balance. Please do take care of yourself.

    When you need to rest, you need to do it. It’s tough to give in because we aren’t built that way, right? As for the dress? I think it’s lively, but how about adding a belt? Especially a wide gold one? Maybe even a deep wine color?

    Please take care!

    Your blog will always be here, no matter how much you post, how much time you devote to it, etc. Sometimes life throws us harder seasons and we just have to let go or do less of what we could do in simpler seasons. I’m glad you will still be posting some as I enjoy stopping by and seeing what you have to share. I hope you get some time to rest and pamper yourself. Gold is my favorite color, so of course I love this dress! Those white boots are just so perfect with it!

    I just adore the dress with the white this way. But why not with any other colors, especially warmer colors. Like red?? Or I know you have yellow boots!!!

  20. 23rd October 2021 / 18:22

    Fantastic dress and I love your styling with the white, Nancy. What about wearing it with some colour? A coloured moto-jacket? Even a black one! What about a belt? A long vest or cardigan?

      A long cardigan I haven’t tried yet. A back jacket is to dark for the dress, it makes it look grey. I need something to let the gold come out better!

    Nancy, I really like the way you styled this gold dress with the ivory blazer and boots. It is really elegant and chic. I have not been able to do as much blogging stuff lately either. Not because of health reasons, but life just got so darn busy suddenly that I hardly have the time to sit at my computer. I do hope that your energy levels return soon, my friend. And please let me know what I can do to help. If you need me to take over some of the stuff for our collaborative projects, I will!

    Nancy, I think the dress looks absolutely fabulous with the white boots and jacket! I’m not sure why you think otherwise. I love it!

    I feel you on the reduced posting for your health, Nancy! I am in a similar boat. If I try to ramp up my activities too much, then I am sick. So given that we need to unpack, I’ve cut out my Friday fashion post. The only post I write is the Monday Link-up Potpourri post. And while yes, there is Traffic Jam weekend, I don’t write that one. The content is shared by the host to her co-hosts. So not a lot of work there.

    I love the way you’ve styled this dress Nancy. I think it looks fabulous!
