During economic recession like this year, I always want something glitter that can cheer myself up, also give me the hope and power that I need, that’s why I love love gold pieces. As heritage from medieval period, metallic pieces combines retro and modern, luxury and powerful.

Since 2008 till now, metallic pieces never go out of style. We can spot them all over the runways. But I haven’t gotten to the point to wearing gold garments, like a trench or a dress, small amount of glamour is just what I need, like this stunning gold belt on Gwyneth Paltrow. Her belt comes with the dress from Stella McCartney Evening 2012 collection.

Do you believe a luxury brand can grow and bloom during wars when it’s even hard for people to stay safe? Well, Coco Chanel believes and her business grew strongly during the First World War.

It applies to today’s women too. As the center of a family, as a member of an organization, women should keep optimistic, stay strong. That’s what I feel when I saw this bright sunny yellow bag (picture from Instyle.co.uk):

Back in 2010, when Kate Moss rocked her black simple yet sexy black pointed toe shoes with everything, this 90’s trend gets stronger and stronger. We can see a lot on 2012 spring/ summer runway.

While others are enthralled by this trend, I still stand away from it for the harshness and mature look until I saw these babies: the Valentino T-strap studded pumps. It has been two years but I couldn’t stop loving them.
