A {Golden} Moment

street gold

Lately I’ve been seeing gold. It seems as though the glam colour I usually associate with vintage jewelry has been sneaking into my life in many different ways. I’m currently on the hunt for a gold sequin maxi dress for an upcoming wedding in the Philippines where guests have been given a specific colour palette to wear – gold being one of the chosen hues. Secondly, I have been mandated by my dear friend Cindy Orellana to use gold as part of a colour scheme for an upcoming photoshoot we are working on together, and finally; with the holiday season approaching, I have inevitably and predictably been captivated by gilded inspiration boards featuring it’s irresistible glow.

Amidst this golden frenzy in which I’ve found myself enthralled; I learned that this metallic pigment is associated with the heart chakra. I don’t exactly understand the correlation or even if it’s true (does Pinterest ever lie?) but it made me realize a few things: that finding a perfect dress for this upcoming wedding in the Philippines is not as important as caring for those affected by the country’s current devastation (to donate for relief of Typhoon Taiyan click HERE), that I’m blessed to be surrounded by such talented people doing what they love, that the holiday season is more about sharing love than pretty things, and that sequins are gorgeous but even more so is a heart of gold.
