Best of both worlds. Or so it seems. Remember this post? Now, if that is not the perfect materialisation of an innocent little blog post, I don’t know what is.

A little while ago I wrote about clutches on this blog and how I’m beginning to warm up to them (you can read the post here). It just occurred to me that I should have probably said pouch and not clutch when speaking about the daytime version (I found the picture here by the way). Since those are most of the time bigger and more pliant, the word „pouch“ somehow seems to be a better fit. But before we immerse ourselves in linguistic adventures, I stop right here and say what was really on my mind: the diy version of a very renown pouch (American Apparel). Apparently you can not only paint your walls the colour you dreamt up, you can do just the same to your bag/ clutch/ pouch. What sounds like a mad idea leads to a stunning distressed result which I really like. This is news to me. How about you?

Last week I spoke about one of the most classic combinations in fashion town, black and white. I immediately had this image in my mind and yes, I already posted in once, back in the days, but I hope that you agree with me: it one of those pictures that deserves a repost. For me, it represents the epitome of elegance.
I think (and I probably always will) that you can never go wrong when your choice fells on black and white. I also think that rolled-up sleeves are a small change, but always have quite an impact which should not be underestimated. It really changes the look completely, since you can switch the degree of formality in about a second. And then there is the matter of gold and silver, mixed up. It is not necessarily a pair which always works well together, but that picture is definitely a hell of a good proof that it can be done. Finally, there are two objects in this picture which serve perfectly well for two posts coming up this week (and since there are not many options, I think you can guess which ones I have in mind). Stay tuned…

As you have probably already noticed, definitely golden comes now with a brand new title design (thanks to this lovely man here and his beautiful handwriting) and I couldn’t be any happier about it. But there is even more news: at the right side you find two new buttons standing for two new series, Captured and Wanted. The first one is going to be dedicated to Instagram, among others to little subjective observations and thoughts. The latter introduces you regularly to a personal selection of a few lovely things covering a wide range: expensive, impractical, indispensable and affordable. I figured it would be a shame to exclude any of those categories from my list and with that, from this blog. Just as this insanely beautiful transparent clutch by Maison Martin Margiela.
