Gold hasn't been so popular since James Bond and Goldfinger hit the cinema screens 40 years ago! 

Gold colour and shimmering metallic gold has been featured in every autumn 2006 fashion collection. Lost Horizon vintage cuff jewellery.The simplest way to add gold colour to your wardrobe is with golden jewellery or with a metallic gold tone fashion accessory.  There are plenty of affordable gold fashion items around such as necklaces bangles, bags and shoes.

Gold Shoes

Of course the simplest way of all to become a golden lady is to add a pair of gold shoes.  This autumn 2006 one of the most useful and fashionable of shoes will be the ballerina pump.  Ballerina flats in all metallics including silver grey tones and animal prints are a fashion trend that is still gaining momentum.

Pretty Ballerina Flat Pump Shoes


You will find inexpensive gold ballet pumps in every high street shop selling shoes.  What a practical, but great look.  Ballerina flats along with newer styles of bootie shoes seem especially modern this fall.  Team either type of footwear with fancy lace tights or leggings for the look of now.

With thicker tights or knee socks ballerinas can be used effectively to create the layered look.  They will take you into autumn whilst your boots languish in the cupboard until a cooler day.  What could be prettier than walking through autumnal leaves in your gold ballerinas.

Gold Evening Shoes

These spindly gold evening shoes below, won't break the bank and are standard stiletto heels that always have a place in the wardrobe.  These gold shoes are from Matalan, are inexpensive at 14, cheap enough to wear for just one special evening.  They cover the spectrum from true gold to copper gold.  You could call them your Matalans!

However, if Manolos are your preference for gold shoes, then you will of course have an heirloom item, but also you need the funds to pay the price.
