Bring on the bling for an Oscar viewing party or just more day-to-day sparkle.
Things are changing in Hollywood, but when the Academy Awards air tonight, one thing will remain the same: the brilliant gold statues handed out to the winners.
Bring some of that bling into your life, for an Oscar viewing party or just for a little more day-to-day fun, with these finds that strike gold.
Converse Jack Purcell Low Top Sneaker ($75 at Nordstrom). A humble, classic sneaker design gets a pop of glamour in a gold leather version. The metallic finish dresses up jeans and a T-shirt, while just as easily adding a cool and modern twist to a little black dress.
Pat McGrath Labs Mthrshp Sublime Bronze Ambition Palette ($55 at patmcgrath.com). Celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath is famous for her Gold 001 pigment that sells out within seconds of each launch. But you can get the look without stalking the internet with her new bronze-themed eyeshadow palette (out March 9). It includes the highly pigmented Gold Rush shade, along with five other complementary hues sure to make you sparkle.
Baleen Annex Earrings ($58 at Baleen, Ballard, and shopbaleen.com). Two simple gold spheres create a lot of drama in these locally made earrings. Matte gold plating keeps them soft and wearable, while the jumbo size ensures they make a statement.
Trophy Red Velvet Macarons ($2.50 each at Trophy locations and trophycupcakes.com). Have your gold and eat it too! The local cupcake company also makes delectable macaron cookies, including these standouts that feature a cream-cheese filling set inside French-cocoa-infused crispy-chewy biscuits brushed with edible gold glitter.
Sunwoven Mirrored Weavings (starting at $150 for two at sunwovenstudio.com). Add an original (and very on-trend) art piece to your home with this pair of weavings, handmade by Erin Barrett in Charleston, South Carolina. Each set is made to order, so you can pick your dowel style and color, and even add gold metallic elastic for extra bling.
