Favorite Finds: Going Gold, A Gilded Table

I'm apparently on a style kick lately -- with another post on styling up your table. Maybe it was watching Coco Before Chanel last Sunday evening with a few girlfriends, but for the past few days I've been fixated on playing up 'Parisian chic' and going gold in the kitchen and on the table. Gabrielle (her real name) Chanel's style was impeccable, classic and history-making as she blurred the lines between women's fashion and menswear. She made the simplest cotton striped shirt look unbelievably chic, sophisticated and sexy. So in the spirit of Coco and chic (and healthful!) tables everywhere, here are a few of my favorite picks to dress up your next springtime dinner party or cozy weeknight meal at home. Thankfully, the price tag on these picks are a little more manageable than Coco's.
*Stay tuned for tomorrow's post on the pre-movie Sunday dinner I cooked up for my friends. On the menu: Asparagus Salad with Pickled Rhubarb and Feta Cheese, Peppercorn-Crusted Grilled Tuna Steak with Spring Onions & Pestoed Polenta.
