Major Faux Pas ?

I love mixing my clothes and jewellery up to my own personal style. But I've always heard that mixing silver and gold together is a MFP (Majour Faux Pas). I've seen many style icons mixing the two metals from Mary-Kate to Whitney Eve. I don't see a problem in wearing the two! You can't be expected to have a Pandora bracelet and have completely gold charms on now can you?

Personally, I think that MFP has become a DFP; Dead Faux Pas, in jewellery terms. Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying go out and wear a silver dress with gold shoes, belt, jewels the lot! There are boundaries. But as for jewellery, be brave and express yourself.

These don't match in the slightest, but they worked with my outfit. I'm wearning two different shades of gold metal - one curved ring at the joint and a tiger to match my nails. On the other hand I have a silver and topaz teardrop ring. That was just my expression for today . I couldn't pick, so I wore them all. Some people will still be against silver & gold together but it's only jewellery . Lighten up (Hahah !)

Update on the Minx effect nails. I'm not feeling them to be honest. They are starting to get on my nerves. I've scratched myself so many times it's really grating on me. With having to clean down after work , washing up and showering - it's taken a big tole on them ! The ends are begining to peel making them scratchy and some are lifting. I spoke to a friend of mine who is also a nail technician; she said even Minx start to peel. They do look amazing but are not for long term wear. I will be taking these off tomorrow when I get chance. I would recommend these for a certain night out, or for a dirty unemployed person who doesn't have to put products and water to their hands. But with everything they have been through - they have stayed decent enough for me to not want to hide my hands away !!

Thaaanks for reading.

  1. Its so weird, I was literally talking to my mum about this the other day! I think it is one of those things that it can be done well, but then it can look awful. Its like wearing red and pink at the same time or black and brown together. I think it depends on the shades of the colour and how you pull off the overall outfit really. Gorgeous jewellery and the silver topaz ring looks beautiful and I think it goes really well with your gold jewellery, it breaks it up. XxxX

  2. Aaw thanks babe ! Yeah I'm always wondering about it, I got a lot of positive comments that day . You should do a fashion post about it!! Xxx

  3. I like mixing gold and silver too.:D
