NoH Does: Shiny Things

Alright, so NoH Does looks a little different this week. This week’s topic post “Shiny Things” was actually inspired by another fashion blogger and I thought it only fitting that this week’s NoH Does showcase the muse as well as giving you guys a peek behind my process.

Let me explain:  Kristy author of Vogue Gone Rogue and Sunglass Hut’s Full Time Fabulous , was recently visiting Los Angeles.  We met up for drinks and I found myself utterly enamored with her fantastic Foley+Corinna bag.  I loved that while it was a metallic (gunmetal to be exact) it was truly an accent to her ensemble and did not visually steal the show as shiny things have a tendency to do.

This got me thinking about my own love for metallics as neutrals.  There is such a plethora of options.  And they are not limited to accessories!  These days if it can be worn it probably comes in a metallic.  It was from this line of thought “Shiny Things” was born!



  1. Ooo I love shiny things! :-)

  2. Metallics can so easily be overdone, thanks for showing how they can be neutrals, as well (I love the dress/striped stockings combo)

  3. Such a fab bag… thanks for the credit! :)

  4. great post sweetheart! and thanks so much for the shout out. i have a deep love and appreciating for that purse as well. yay foley + corinna!!

  5. Gorgeous!!

  6. Not including jewelry I have exactly two metallic pieces in my wardrobe: a pair of bronze heeled sandals and a big bronze tote that was a give-away from Ulta. I haven’t really worn them together, yet, but this gives me an idea of how I could!

    I’m afraid I’m never going to be able to get my outfits done in time though! This weekend I finally took a shot of my one maxi dress – two weeks too late.

  7. Well, counting my jewelry, I have NO metallic pieces. I always thought that unless you spent a ton on them they would look “garish” but that purse should be on my purse shelf. Thanks. And thanks for stopping by the Tiki Hut.

  8. Love this bag, I heart shiny things!

  9. Totally agree! I love metallics! This bag is great. I’ll have to check out her blog!
