I personally am very fond of the bling and the metallic. Though a full-house of the same may qualify as a post in The Dressing Room series, I love to incorporate the same in significant doses in an outfit. Bling adds richness and playful elegance to an outfit while metallics' add the right amount of texture. Both are a great way to enhance the look and feel of an everyday outfit. Spring 2012 saw many designers introducing pieces dipped in a sea of gold, silver and sequins. And just when I thought I was late in posting this look, Burberry Prorsum threw in its cinematic Spring 2013 collection. I feel this post can safely pass as transitional!
The key to wearing metallic and polishing your look is to pick up one piece and build an outfit accentuating that. Since I wasn't doing the regular gold or silver, I played around with the colors and decided to dare a bit and add this clutch to complement the blouse. A basic skirt with (DIY-ed) vintage buttons and the cuff added to the festivity bringing in the bling. Conventional gold and silver is definitely on the cards, so stay tuned!
Coming over to why today's post is a little ode to a metallic shirt. As kids, my sister and I had a really bright (something between sky blue and royal blue) blue colored shirt. So bright is to mean super-metallic and fearing.to.say latex. Ever since we were gifted that, it became a joke as to who would wear it and a scary stick as to who would mom make it wear in case she got into the "you have so many clothes...but hardly wear them" mode. Thankfully (really??), after dressing me once in it (to a birthday party...birthday parties as kids were meant to be costume-y) my mother too realized
its horrific presence our inability to style it appropriately and gave it away. Wonder what would I have done if I had it today?? Ummmm...look up...back to the outfit!
