Orange & Gold: A Match Made in Heaven

For more than a year, I had my heart set on wearing an orange dress with gold accessories for my 10 year high school reunion this past June. Much like with prom, I was on the planning committee, so I had plenty of time to obsess. I made my prom dress for my senior project, and I spent almost as much time and energy pinning orange/gold combinations for my 10 year reunion.

But then, of course, just when I found a cute, appropriately-priced orange dress at NastyGal, I simultaneously found a retro-inspired white dress with yellow daisies at Nordstrom Rack and I changed strategies altogether.

But because it’s the season of orange and gold, I wanted to share with you my robust findings so that the general public can benefit from my time investment. It’s been so long however that some of the original links are now dead. I’ve linked to the source whenever possible.

SO MUCH INSPIRATION.

For the record, I accessorized my white/daisy dress with kelly green purse and shoes and Brigitte Bardot-inspired hair. Here is how the look came together.
