Outfit of the Day: Black and Gold Ensemble

Outfit of the Day: Black and Gold Ensemble

Hello beauties!

I am back with yet another OOTD which I hope you will like too. This time around, I wanted to share with you what I wore on a formal occasion I attended last year. Yup, I wore this outfit a year ago, but it was one of my favorites and I will soon wear again, in few weeks.
What I wore? Little Black Dress + Long Skirt + Gold Accessories = Black and Gold Ensemble.


Let me break it down a little. =)

What a girl should must-have in her closet is a little black dress.  I am a strong believer of that! Karl Lagerfeld said, one is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress. On those occasions, you want to be simple yet fab, bust out your LBD and have fun accessorizing!

On the event I graced, I initially wanted to wear my venus cut little black dress which I wore several times already. It originally has silver sequins shoulder strap and I thought of recreating the dress to make it look new and since I was attending a golden birthday party, I wanted to incorporate gold on my dress. I do have a gold headband and replaced the silver shoulder strap with it. =)

It was a golden birthday/Hollywood/red carpet themed party. I really wanted to wear a long gown that time as I wanted to walk along red carpet in something much more elegant than LBD, but I do not have a single long gown. Good thing I found my long black skirt which I was never able to wear ever. I thought of wearing it over my little black dress and add a gold chain belt around my waist and see if it would fake long black gown. Voila! A black and gold ensemble!

Little Black Dress

To make everything coordinated, I wore golden diamond-studded heels that my aunt gave me. I love it a lot as it is oozing with elegance and sexiness. It will make you look a whole lot feminine. It is not too high and I find comfort standing on those the whole night.


Yup, I was standing for hours since I was one of the event coordinators. The celebrant was my husbands’ aunt and she consulted me about a possible theme for her 50th birthday after we had celebrated my son’s Rock Star themed party. We came out with a Hollywood-themed party and of course I had to work on the program as I partied.  I had lots of fun as I was able to contribute to the success of her party. She’s really dear to me, like she’s my own aunt.

Hollywood Theme party

I carried a gold small purse, vintage black earrings and chunky vintage ring, and of course, I had my son’s outfit matching with mine. I styled him in all black clothing with a gold bow tie and funky brooch with a touch of gold attached to his vest.

Golden Bag

I will wear this outfit again next month, but I was thinking of adding something new to it again. I love doing that as it saves me money and it let me be more creative than usual.


I hope I was able to share some fashion ideas, especially on transforming old clothes into something different, as if it is new.
Don’t just imagine. Create!

  1. wow…im kinda speechless here…..i for one would never have imagined wearing a long skirt over an LBD to give it the flowy gowny look……hi 5 for ur creativity…n ur son is looking so so cute with the gold bow….

    1. thanks a lot Sophia. 🙂 I usually wear balloon skirt over my mini dresses which I find too short for my liking. Yeah to add length to it. I am happy by the time I learned that it will work for LBDs too. =) The bow, that was actually a hair ribbon, I recreated to be his bow. 🙂

    1. Thanks Aparajita. 🙂 I am the frugal type, that I’d like to get my money’s worth on every item I get. With that, I’d like to wear them as many times as possible but make them appear different each time. =) I agree about that certain feeling of joy you’ll have towards something you created. It feels oh-so-good. Thanks for appreciating my work Aparajita. =)
