[Guest Post] Gold & Gray: Must-Have-Now Picks

Please welcome Lily of Gold & Gray!

I introduced you to Lily over at Gold & Gray a few weeks ago (you can thank me later), but I wanted to be sure to treat you all to her fantastic taste. She is a rising style star, in my humble opinion! Case in point…

When putting together this post to be featured on Small Shop, I knew it had to be extra fabulous since Erika is one of the most fabulous bloggers out there! I was so honored when she asked me to share some of my favorite picks and was inspired by the bright colors mixed with dark & light in the gorgeous painting by Los Angeles artist Lindsay Cowles. How glamorous does all this magenta look with a brass lamp and a Jimmy Choo leopard clutch thrown in? I love how the YSL magenta heels could instantly update a plain outfit the same way the brightly colored DREAM Hermes throw would do for a room! I am all about simple (not boring) outfits and rooms with a few extra glam touches!

Thank you SO much Erika for having me over to share some glamorous picks on your extra fabulous blog! Come visit me on gold & gray if you want to see more and enter a great giveaway starting today!


Thank you Lily for this gorgeous contribution!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. Lily I have been dreaming about owning that throw for a few years now! J’adore the chic bent you gave it mixed with leopard and brass! You have a great eye!

  2. Lily, your post is beautiful!! A combination of my favorite colors, gold, gray and pops of purple. I’ve been swooning over those YSL shoes forever now. Such a glam fun board. I need all of the above.

  3. Thank you for having me over Erika !! It was so much fun putting together some of my favorite things 🙂


  4. I am obsessed with every item in this post and with Lily! The link to the brass lamp is broken and I need it today so please tell me where it is from!!! Oh, and how come Hermes never sells that color blanket? Where can you get one in pink??? Love everything!

  6. Great picks. They remind me a lot of you, actually. I need more glam in my life. I can’t help but fall for cute all the time. I’m almost thirty, maybe it’s times to step it up.

  7. yay – so happy to meet Lily and love her giveaway! So Kelly Wearstler! Thanks for your write up on her a few weeks ago and thanks for all your great content, Erika! Been dying to tell you how much I adore your bedroom styling and the KW duvet and your painting above your bed and the horse bit pillow. you are so talented!

  8. Lily, the combination of brass (grounding), white feather (spiritual) and rich pink & purple (a bit of depth and stimulation) would be prefect for a glamorous spa or yoga studio too!
