Shiny Things

Silver and Gold.  Sigh.  Pewter and Bronze.  Double Sigh.  These are a few of my favorite things.   Seriously though, long before I grab some bright color from my closet I reach for some trusty metallics.  I love some shine. Especially when worn as a neutral.  And in spring that is exactly the way I like to wear them.  They just make me feel good.


So sit back, relax, and enjoy these pieces:

Where To Shop:



  1. I love metallics as well!

  2. I love using metallics as a neutral! As long as they aren’t obnoxiously gold or silver, etc, most people can easily pull them off. I love that bag!

  3. i am so feeling this. i love metallics as well, but one of the things i particularly love about this season’s metallics and the ones you’ve posted here is that they aren’t garish. they have a subtlety to them that i adore. like my foley + corinna gunmetal purse that you like!!

  4. Wow those wedges are gorgeous! I have a pair of gold metalic Mary Janes and they never seem to go out of fashion!
    Great post!

  5. Shine is always fun. This morning at work, walking through the warehouse where the ladies refold garments for shipment, I saw one gal with silver sequins lining the hood of her hoodie! Surprise bling!

  6. Can someone beam those wedges up to my closet pretty please?

  7. Shiny things make me feel skinny. and that is good. Or maybe I just feel good, so I don’t care that I’m not skinny. I don’t know, but inspired by you I bought a new pair of bronze sandals today. So shiny.

  8. dying over the shoes.

  9. Yes! Me too. I have a pair of bronze Miu Miu Mary Janes and I can’t bring myself to stop wearing them, even though they have seen better days. Loving that J Crew metallic tee! Hope your week is off to a great start Alexis!
