Madonna. Stevie Nicks. Dolce & Gabbana. Alexander McQueen – what do these icons have in common? Staying golden. And not just in that botox-tastic sense of the word, but with style, grace and above all, SPARKLE! So this holiday season, let’s adorn ourselves in bejeweled and be-crusted pieces. Then, waltz into cocktail parties like a Queen.

Lamé for DAYS!

If it’s good enough for Cleopatra, it’s good enough for YOU. A little back-story though: Lamé is a type of fabric woven or knit with thin ribbons of metallic yarns, as opposed to guipé, where the ribbons are wrapped around a fibre yarn. It is usually gold or silver in color; sometimes copper lamé is seen. Lamé comes in different varieties, depending on the composition of the other threads in the fabric. Common examples are tissue lamé, hologram lamé and pearl lamé. This means you NEED this fabulousness in your life. If you find a holographic piece, reach out to me ASAP for an IG feature.

Bedeck the halls with GOLD costume jewelry like a BOSS!

Remember last week’s velvet dresses and how we loved every little golden thread? Well the next two weeks are even more Instagram worthy! Get inspired with this Pinterest board filled to the brim with gold sequins, glitter and holiday party classic. This past weekend shopping at Goodwill, we found a super cute Zara blazer fully lined in gold AND a super sweet pair of sexy glitterati heels. So, scour those racks and find the treasure chest you’re looking for.

Can you get your golden girl (love you Bea!) look on? Is it a floor-length super dramatic gown or a sweet 1980’s é prom dress you’ve found? Send us your pics and share comments below until next time, see you on the streets for PART 2 of this Staying Golden Holiday Special!

Till then, follow my food, fun and travel treks on Twitter and Instagram @PlanetBrandee – till then, see you on the streets!
