Glam Gold Holiday Gifts

We’ll be the first to admit that we’re guilty of loving gold. And when the holidays come around, there’s no excuse not to give everything the goldfinger treatment. Armed with a can of spray paint, we’ve glammed up everything from pine cones to feathers, picture frames to pottery. But since not everyone is a fan of DIY and sometimes, let’s face it, projects get a little bit out of hand, we’ve chosen some of our favorite gilt gifts, each and every one a gleaming, decadent and totally chic. So while some might shy away from bold gold, we say there’s no better hue for the holidays.

Save Steal Splurge: Destroyed Denim

There will always be those people who want their jeans as inky as possible. Pristine, brand new denim is hard to wear (breaking in is just as hard as breaking up, if you ask us) and with the indian summer settling in for the long haul we think it’s time to lighten up and get a pair with some built-in AC. Destroyed denim is back in the spotlight now that even the most hardcore denim heads are sweating in their selvedge, so pick up a pair in your favorite silhouette. Can’t let go of your skinnies? There are shredded versions of your beloved blues and for those who just can’t break up with their boyfriends, there’s a bad boy full of holes waiting just for you.
