Looking Back, Looking Forward

Sparkle and shine forever. Metallics have been a hot trend for the past few seasons. And, I am sold on the idea that metallics are classics. To safely incorporate them in my outfits, I turn to accessories—a great choice for the budget conscious. A metallic bag or shoe can be the perfect finishing touch to many looks.

Today’s post features a few of my favorites. A vintage gold clutch and a quilted patent leather skimmer with a dainty bow detail fulfill my golden desires. A silver clutch and peep-toe pumps with a stacked heel, elegant bow, and cut-out details add instant glam to many looks.

    Great things, I love them.
    I think you’re right they can give that final touch to an outfit.

    Thanks for the trip wishes.
    I’ll be back…

    I can’t wait to see how you incorporate these beautiful items to your outfits. I just bought some silver pumps that I thought were cute and have not a clue of what to put them with. But quite honestly it could be the “too” round toe that is turning me off. I love bronze with turqoise and brown. But I just havent gotten the silver right.

    Seeker: Thanks! Metallics really do add beautiful final touches.

    Sara: That bronze with turquoise and brown sounds like a magnificent combination. I’ve got to try it! You know, I wear the gold shoes all the time, but I haven’t worn the silver ones nearly as often. I’ve done the silver pumps with deep purples. But, I’ve got to try them with some other looks. Thanks for stopping by!!

    So true Nywele. I kill this pair of gold flats. I bought them online one weekend when Ann Taylor Loft was having an insane sale. Everything sold in like minutes. This pair was marked down to $9 (with shipping included).
