“You’re gold when you’re a kid, like green. When you’re a kid everything’s new, dawn. It’s just when you get used to everything that it’s day. Like the way you dig sunsets, Pony. That’s gold. Keep that way, it’s a good way to be.”
- Johnny, The Outsiders (1983)
Some of the things I wore during the holidays: black, gold, camo. But mostly, gold. Didn’t we use to think gold was sort of tacky back in the day? Now, its piling on. Gold on gold. Gold watches and necklaces. Vintage, chunky, or slinky and layered. At the end of the day, gold is elegance, however you wish to wear it. I personally find it an instant picker upper, something to contrast any of my dark staples.
It’s another year, and I only have two words for whoever is reading this. That is, stay gold. Stay true to yourself and what you do. Whatever it is, own it. This year is for the fearless!
Happy New Year!
