Shopping Monday: Savvy Silver Bags

After reigning supreme for the last few years, gold metallic apparently is not the only favorite child anymore. Silver metallic is gaining ground as the newest "IT" color. Going into 2009, silver will gain popularity as the luxury color of choice instead of gold due the current economic slump. There is an interesting phenomenon, whenever there is a recession, consumers tend become more conservative, thus prefer silver to gold. I don't think gold will disappear tomorrow but definitely I think it will phase out slowly until it's ready to come back in a big way. So ladies, don't throw away your gold accessories even if silver becomes color du jour in 2009. Also because we have stocked up on enough gold in the past years, what better way to get into a gal's wallet than a new "IT" trend.
