Adding a Print to Your Red & Gold

Chinese New Year with Red & Gold.

Red & Gold for Any Ages: With a Print

Quote of the day: “Throw kindness around like confetti.” Jessica DeMenna

Welcome back to the second post in the series where mom, Nancy & I are teaming up with Sheela & Eve to celebrate the Chinese New Year. You can see how we got all fancy for the occasion, here!

Sheela figured that one way to add some fun and interest to this red and gold color combination, was to combine it with a print.

Now I realize that this is all open to interpretation, and there really aren’t any “rules”, but I did notice that I “cheated” with mom’s & my outfit. Our gold item is also our print item! The other 3 outfits in this post are a true red and gold with a print! Do you have a preference?

Eve (The World According to Eve): It always amazes me how the 5 of us can put together the same theme, yet look so different! I actually used to have a print jacket like this, so, of course, I love it!

Sheela (Sheela Writes): I think Sheela’s print pants are the perfect recipe for adding a smile to your face! And they aren’t what I’d consider a red print, yet the colors go so well. In fact, it reminds me of the turquoise & red jewelry that I see so much of in the Southwest!

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I was excited to wear my new skirt that I just bought on my birthday for a mere $6 (thanks to a sale at the LOFT along with using my birthday reward). I consider it a gold and brown jacquard print, so I figured it would check off 2 boxes for this category! Then adding in my red sweater with the faux fur trim was the next step.

This purse is exactly my kind of black purse!! Isn’t it just hilarious? My mom pointed it out to me at the Vegas airport when we were waiting to come home from our trip at Christmas. And the zippers really work on it, so I can stow my keys in one of the outside pockets for easy retrieval!

Thanks to Nancy who bought me these amazing earrings for my birthday! They are knitted wire, so very apropos for an avid knitter like me!

These faux fur ear muffs came with the wrap that I wore in the last post! I forgot how much I loved ear muffs, but my husband was making fun of me that I looked like Princess Leia! Then again, is that really a bad thing?

Skirt: LOFT (similar here)~~Sweater: Ivano Boni-thrifted (similar here in a black poncho or here in a cardigan)~~Boots: Payless (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Ear Muffs: Restoration Hardware (similar here)~~Purse: (similar here but not shaped as a jacket or here in a cat shape)

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: For Nancy’s red item, we grabbed her red jeans!! Does every woman reading this have a pair of red jeans? I know when they first became big on the fashion scene, I thought I could never get away with the trend. But I’m glad I got over that, and even Nancy feels comfortable in this brighter colored jean!

The print clothing we chose for this category is not much different than mine really in that it’s a brown print. But at least it’s a totally different piece of clothing. And even though it’s a shirt & cardigan, they are pretty lightweight, so Nancy wore her lace extender & another camisole under this!

Chinese New Year with Red & Gold.

Nancy doesn’t have many gold clothing pieces in her closet, so I told her to go wild with the gold necklaces!! Look at how well she layered 4 different necklaces!! I bet every one of you reading this could do the same thing from your existing necklace collection?

Chinese New Year with Red & Gold.

You may not look at this outfit and think about the Chinese New Year since the gold is more subtle. But, I do think it’s an outfit that would work for many occasions!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: Like I mentioned above, my mom’s gold shirt is what I considered her print also. It’s this beautiful glitter, lightweight sweater that she wore on the blog back in the beginning when we were styling glitter, here, here & here!

Chinese New Year with Red & Gold.

Since the sweater is full of glitter, I decided to forgo a necklace for mom’s outfit.  But I couldn’t let an opportunity pass where I could style another brooch! This is the same placement I put the other brooches for our series last month for mom (here). But mom didn’t complain about it this time, so either she got used to it or I’m wearing her down, LOL!

Chinese New Year with Red & Gold

Mom’s trousers are these beautiful tweed material. Now that I think of it, wouldn’t tweed be considered a print, too? If that’s the case, then mom is mixing her prints! And it wouldn’t be a normal day, if I didn’t point out that mom made these trousers!!

Chinese New Year with Red & Gold.

We vacillated on mom’s footwear for this outfit. The trousers have a very, wide leg opening, which I’m not used to styling. We tried it with a brown boot that wasn’t as high, but settled on the red ankle boots. Then again, these boots could be too high?

I may say it all the time, but I mean it all the time—thank you so much for reading!

  • Mummy in a TuTu

    I do love a good splash of red I have to say!!
    Thanks for linking to #ablogginggoodtime

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks!!

  • Red and gold is so pretty together! Your skirt is such a great find – love the print! Your bag is too cute!

      Thanks so much Jill!!

  • Red and gold is like Christmas red and green or Halloween orange and black. I associate it so strongly with Chinese New Year that I struggle to see its versatility and potential beyond decorations. This series really shows how versatile the pairing can be, especially when you add a pop of print. And that mini skirt you’re wearing is too cute with the heeled booties!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s interesting you say that about red and gold, Liz! I guess I was totally ignorant about the holiday so I never had that association. But I do know what you mean about with red and green & Halloween colors—it is so hard to get past it!
      Thanks for the love and happy Friday!!

  • That bag is fabulous, I love it! Red is my favourite colour – I got married in a red dress with gold embroidery 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Really, Emma? That’s so cool about your wedding dress? Was it at the Chinese New Year or just because you love the color so much? What a great tidbit to learn about you—thanks for sharing!!

  • That purse is hilarious!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t it such a great conversation starter, Aileen? The funny thing is, I don’t think most “normal” people notice it —at least right away!!
      Happy Weekend!!

  • Julia Nyanyo

    Red is my favourite colour, I wear it as much as I can, but not often with gold. I think I need to rectify that immediately, it looks great (what was I thinking?!)

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I really wouldn’t have thought of this pairing either Julia!! But it does look nice, I think!
      Thanks so much for your thoughts & love!!

  • Okay I love your cute little earmuffs! Adorable and practical instead of a hat. Also Nancys little lace on her sweater hem is so cute and Charlottes pants are amazing! Love the wide leg!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Ruth!! My mom & Nancy will love that you included them with your kind words!!

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. You all look great in red.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nicole!!

  • One Sage Mama

    I love Jodie’s skirt! Everyone came out looking great. It’s so interesting to see how each lady puts their own spin on something. Thanks for linking up! #fridayfrivolity

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much!!

  • I really love your gold skirt Jodie! Also, I think your booties are very cute, but is that type of heel hard to wear? I’ve stayed away from skinny heels like that b/c I’ve always thought they would hurt. How are they compared to chunky heels? Julia

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Julia!!
      I don’t think these heels are hard to wear at all. But then again I used to wear heels every day at work, so I may not be the right person to ask. I’m sure I wouldn’t wear them for a day of walking around, but for a couple of errands, they are great! (I also used to be a gymnast, so I always wonder if it’s easy for me because I was so used to being on my toes all the time???)
      Payless usually has some inexpensive heels if you wanted to try them? Their comfort plus ones are always a good choice—I also love Christian Siriano’s designs!!

  • jess

    Jodie, so cute! I don’t have much gold ( with the exception of one skirt) love the new skirt, did I miss your Birthday!! Happy Birthday and what a steal! Love the mix of brown, gold and red and think the print really adds a lot. I finally bought a lace extender for oneof my dresses, so we’ll see! Nancys looks great

      How fun that you bought a dress lace extender. I just got one for the 3 of us to style for a series later this spring too!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    So much I love in this post. 🙂 First off, I love gold… and I have never paired it with red before, so I am going to have to try this… those knitted earrings are so pretty and I just adore that skirt you have on. I also love the lace on the bottom of Nancy’s top. And your momma always looks adorable! 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Gemma!!

  • LOL – all the work at styling 3 great outfits and you are all upstaged by a purse! 🙂 (MY kind of purse too, btw). I’m sure I have the jacket already – tons of similar zippers and pockets and a tie at the waist – one of my favorite Christmas gifts from an ex-beau – picked out totally alone, btw, size right and everything. (I only wish he had gotten ME as well as he got my taste in clothing.)

    I actually got stopped for shoplifting in the thing at the big Christmas Place store in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. A police officer looked in every single one of those pockets, supposedly because someone said they saw me tuck things away in them. I was incensed, but politely asked, “Who is watching that person while you are searching ME?” He didn’t even apologize when he found absolutely nothing, btw.

    RUINED that store forever for me – won’t even shop online for anything in it – and it was once one of my very favorites. But I still have, love and wear the jacket.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      The purse is such a standout though—-and I don’t mind having it be the center of attention—then you don’t notice my wrinkles & scars, ha ha!!
      That’s such a bummer about the store. But it was the security guy’s fault, not the store! I always say there are bad people in every profession—he could have at least apologized for the inconvenience, I would think!! At least you didn’t get carted off to jail–LOL!! Now that would have been a good story!!

  • writeofthemiddle

    Love this colour combination, and your boots are to die for!! #bootenvy #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Min!! Funny story about these boots—I bought them on a trip to San Antonio because it was too cold for the sandals that I had packed!!

  • Oh my gosh! Your purse is awesome! I’ve never seen one quite like that. And looking like Princess Leia is certainly never a bad thing. 🙂 As always, you ladies all look amazing! Loved the prints.

      Thanks Lindsey!!

  • Such gorgeous outfits at all ages. Love your boots Jodie 🙂 #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lyndall!!

  • I love that purse. Funny how I always identify with 60’s. That is my age, but i always “feel” like I dress younger. Oh well! All well done with the gold.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Hmmm….that really made me think about the labels. I put the generation numbers up just as classification, not so much as how you should dress at certain ages! Because I think it really comes down to your lifestyle and what you like! I know my stepmom (the 60’s model) is more of an outdoorsy girl and has always liked keeping her outfits more simple (although I have pushed her out of that somewhat in these last couple of years). Whereas my mom (the 70’s model) loves dressing up and having tons of glitz in her look.
      And part of dressing younger can be all in perspective, right? Who you hang out with, and what you consider youngish or old fashioned?
      This comment really made me wonder if I should get rid of the numbers? Hmmmm

      • Oh no! Keep the labels. It points out about what fashion is trendy for your age and at the same time encourages those that may lean one way or another to take the leap! (Or not). It makes me consider “who” I am for those occasions!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Thanks for saying this!! I’m always questioning what is working and what isn’t, so it’s nice to hear other people’s thoughts!!

          • I am a straight shooter. I never want to criticize, but I know I appreciate finding out things that I don’t see. I also feel if something is GREAT that I should let someone know. That always makes me smile. To told… and to be told! I use iPad almost always and it really lets you know if items are blocked from view too.I hesitate though to tell someone about that. I feel it is crticizing more than helping. (Yours is perfect. Nothing jumping at me. Nothing darkening my screen for an ad or form and heavens not being able to close it, or see it without going all the way to the top. Nothing too deep where half my screen is the header, nothing at the bottom or on the sides where I can’t see where to type!)

          • Jodie Filogomo

            I like how you say you’re a straight shooter—my friends just call me direct–LOL!
            I think it’s nice to tell others about if something isn’t working correctly—it’s not like you’re criticizing them, really—you’re just letting them know the facts. At least that’s how I always see it. Besides, the mobile issues are something I don’t even think about that much since I’m old fashioned and sit at my laptop most of the day.
            I know my site on my phone (and maybe pad…I don’t check it there much) puts these weird A’s in the text. I can’t figure out how to fix it except to change my theme? I’m assuming you see them too? Does it bug you much?

          • Thanks. The weird characters are coming from an incompatabilty with your keyboard and your font. It happens a lot to me on news sites. I don’t know how to fix it as it comes from different things and isn’t consistent. It isn’t just you!

          • Jodie Filogomo

            Hmmmm…interesting to know. I may try to change my keyboard??

  • All three of you look lovely! Perfect color combination, and i love the addition of a print. You all have such beautiful accessories too!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Abby!! I really appreciate the kind words!!

  • I love these prints. I feel like it always make them so festive whether it’s for Christmas or V Day. It instantly glams up the look a bit.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laura—that’s a great way to look at it!!

  • I love the idea of wearing a print with red! And your earrings are so cool! Are they hand made?

    • Jodie Filogomo

      My step mom, Nancy bought them from a jeweler that had made them. They are knit with wire—-amazing, huh?

  • You are wearing fantastic boots! But what I really find stunning, amazing, fabulous…..Your earrings! Beautiful!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they so interesting? I know I knit with yarn, but I couldn’t imagine knitting these with wire—but the jeweler did!!

  • Absolutely love your hand bag !
    I have to admit I am a bit shy about wearing red.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lorena!!
      That’s funny you say that about red—I haven’t noticed that you don’t wear the color much! Do you feel like it’s too bright?

      • I feel it brings too much attention and feel like I am on the spot.

        • Jodie Filogomo

          I get that, Lorena! But you’re so beautiful…

    Jodie, Jodie, Jodie! You really never cease to amaze me. I can’t get over how you come up with three unique outfits every time you post and they all work. I love that skirt and sweater on you. You’ve got fabulous legs, so show them off! And I wouldn’t mind looking a bit more like Princess Leia! Ha, ha. I really like the animal print on Nancy’s top with the red pants. It works so well. And she did a great job with those necklaces. Your mom is so classy. I think any shoe height works with these pants and those red ankle boots are really stylish. Eve and Sheelah look awesome. And Jodie, that bag! What a statement piece. Very cute. Great job ladies. – Amy

  • Queen of Rods

    Love your bag and ear muffs. So cute. After reviewing the previous blog photos of your mom’s sweater, I really like it with the red jacket and tweed trousers the best. Very nice looks on all three of you 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      When you said that, I had to go back and look again too (I saw them when I linked them, but that was a week ago, and you know how the memory is the first to go–ha ha). I think it’s a warmer combination this time—and I agree—it’s my fave!
      I do have to brag and say that mom said she wouldn’t have thought of this sweater with these pants and that she really liked them together.
      Thanks so much for letting us know, Janet—I know mom really loves reading these comments!!

  • Red and gold make for a nice combo and I think having gold be the print works really well. The motojacket bag is really fun and quirky!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lydia!!
      I think what I really love about the purse is that it basically just looks like a normal black bag—until you really look at it!! 🙂

  • Stevie Turner

    Love your shoulder bag and your red top with the fur collar. Very chic!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Stevie!! I figure I might as well have fun with my clothing!! 🙂

  • Judy Gramith

    Such wonderfully diverse takes on the red and gold theme. I think many women are afraid of red unless it’s Christmas, the 4th of July in the U.S and Valentines Day when some red becomes almost mandatory.
    You have shown us that red and gold can be not only embraced but savored!

    Your purse is too much fun Jodie! Your mini and muffs are cute and textural. Nancy’s feminine top is so pretty on her and the red jacket with your mom’s white hair is striking.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It’s funny because I don’t think of red as being so holiday specific really. I used to wear it quite a bit at work, maybe because much of the time it was hidden under jackets and cardigans??
      Thanks for the remarks and always including mom & Nancy!! They really appreciate it, Jude!!

  • This is a beautiful color combination and I enjoyed seeing it paired with prints. Your earmuffs and bag are just too cute!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jennie!! This purse just makes me smile!!
      I do have to admit that the ear muffs started hurting after wearing them for a couple of hours. I think because they were pushing on my glasses? Bummer!!

      Thanks Cheryl!! Isn’t the purse such a fun statement?? I couldn’t not get it!!

  • Mireille

    That purse is awesome! I love your skirt!! Inspiring color combo but sadly I don’t even have any red in my closet even though I love to wear it. My last red shirt was too small and another cute red and white tunic bled unto the white… guess I should be on the lookout this spring!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I am shocked that you don’t have red in your closet, Mireille!! I guess I think of it as a basic color—that must just be because I love it so much! 🙂
      Thanks for the kind words!

  • mom2h

    I love all these fun looks. Your mom looks ready to go to a Ladies’ charity meeting or something. Nancy is ready for a brunch gathering. And you are going to dinner and the theatre! Sorry. I love to imagine where one might choose to wear an outfit. It’s fun for me, and gives me ideas of what to wear when I’m going out. Have you styled the new “Athleisure” look yet? I’m wondering if I can get away with it. Maybe you can help me with that. lol!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for the wonderful compliments!! It is nice to figure out what to wear when we go out—I know for this outfit of mine, we were running errands and then going to church!
      And Nancy had this on when she took us to lunch to thank us for helping with her remodeled bathroom!!
      I haven’t tried the athleisure wear yet!! I know it may take awhile for me because I look at most of it and think it’s for the gym only!! I know society has gotten more casual, but I still love to dress up so much!! I should try it though—maybe then I’d be a convert??
      Thanks so much for joining in on the conversation!!

      • mom2h

        Cyndi at Grace and Beauty did a little blog post on it today. It has a link to some other “athleisure” looks you might get inspired by…I bet you could take athleisure up a notch!

        • mom2h

          Oh, and there are some really cute athletic shoes on the market right now. Of course, I am in love with the leopard print and florals by Vionic. Nike has some with lace overlays. Still athletically functional.

          • Jodie Filogomo

            You’re totally right about the shoes!! I think I could put together a series with fun, yet functional shoes—thanks for pushing me on this subject!!

          I did see Cyndi’s post—in fact I thought her sweater made the leggings look great. But I had to admit, that I probably would have paired my booties with the look! But that’s exactly why I’m blogging—trying to change things up!!

    I really like how you paired red with brown. I usually do black but the brown makes the look much softer.

      I think I’ve always been a bigger brown fan than black, Bernadette. I remember one friend always commenting (years ago) that she liked my brown, but never thought to wear it!!

  • Great looks!!!!!!
