My Week in Style: Gold Metal Wednesday

Ever since I can remember, whether as a little girl idolizing Mary Lou Retton or sharing in the amazement of Michael Phelps, I have always loved how the Olympics can make a dreamer out of anyone. So in honor of our SoCal beach volleyball Olympic champs, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings, I dedicate today’s style to all things gold.

The top I scored a few weeks back from the Zara sale – it was just too hard to pass on those gold rivets and sheer softness of the material. The metallic gold strappy sandals were also a great find at one of Banana Republic’s ridiculous shoe sales…Don’t you just love getting compliments on something you know you only spent 30 bucks on?

I recently saw in the August issue of Glamour where the Editors pitched their best idea for a fashion/beauty-focused Olympic competition, such as “hair straightening” or “nail art”. Well, if bargain shopping ever made the cut, you better believe I’d be a qualifier.
