Shine On, Cont.

Metallics have never been my thing, until this season. Now, I think they look fresh and add a little something to an everyday look. These strappy pumps are on my spring list.

  • I actually love this metallic pleated skirt and have thought about buying it. I would pair it with a Brooks white shirt, or a good white Cuccinelli tee shirt, or a trim black cashmere short sleeve crew neck sweater. I love it! I wore a metallic dress to the Christmas Ball in ninth grade – smocked bodice and empire line, baby doll sort of shape. It was awesome! : ))) And of course, way better than the date!!

  • I’ve always liked and worn metallics, especially in summer. But they have to be cool-toned luxe looking and I pair them with neutrals. In fact, I really just treat them as a neutral. I don’t wear prints often and I suppose metallics are my alternative to print. Love the skirt!

  • I am shocked at how often I wear my one pair of gold ballet flats – they are my favorite shoes. I feel like a little metallic goes a long way – if I wear the shoes the rest of my outfit is very neutral.

  • What do you think about metallic Birkenstocks?

  • Not my cup of tea. But I feel they are popular in your area, so I may not be the one to ask.

  • I agree with you actually – I just keep seeing them, and wondering why I don’t like them. You’re the only one I ever ask…..

  • Metallics, used carefully, can up any game. But why are grown women still being shown in Maryjanes? Hated them as a child; as soon as I got out of my mother’s sight I put the strap under my foot or wrapped around the back. Little girl clothes are not me.

  • I love my matte gold ballet flats and wear them all the time with jeans and just a grey, black or white t-shirt and that’s my simplest outfit but probably one of my favourites.

  • Love the shoes. Think the skirt is a bit much but if I was younger I might go for it!
