As someone who dresses a little more simply on a day-to-day basis, details are really important to me. For example, I love it when pants are lined with a bright color or when a collar is decorated with studs. The Spring 2012 runways were full of details but the gold adornments were the ones that caught and nestled in my eye. I mean, who doesn’t love a little gold bling in their everyday wear?

To put my art history major to good use, let me just say that Balmain’s collection was like Art Deco meets Byzantium with its angular lines decked out in gold. And then there’s Valentino with those perfect gold studs that seem to be the brand’s new defining factor. Jill Stuart may have been an Easter egg in fabric and colors but the nails were bedazzled in gold dots that I’m officially dubbing my next DIY. Dries Van Noten dabbled in the metallic hue with hints of copper on their shoes and Gucci had an Art Deco 1920s collection that I’d give my first child for. But if I had to choose a single gold embellishment for my Spring 2012 wardrobe, I’d have to go with Yves Saint Laurent’s gold-plated pepto bismol pink loafers that I hope to buy the second they hit stores.

I’m constantly saving images that I find online into a little folder on my computer called “inspiration”. But if I had to name a single site that contains the majority of my fashion inspiration, it would have to be Tommy Ton’s blog Jak&Jil, hands down, bar none, no questions asked. I have a weakness for his detail shots of handbags and accessories like I have a weakness for guacamole. When I seem ‘em I gotta consume every bit of ‘em (aka take in every single detail and save them to my special little folder). A lot of my outfit posts focus on my look as a whole, but I often have a variety of detailed photos that I always regret not sharing. So, here are a few detail shots inspired by non other than the brilliant, Tommy Ton.

Also, I just noticed that I always carry my bag on my left shoulder…maybe I should try the right? That feels weird though. Do you guys only carry your bags on one shoulder?
