Precious Metal



Metallics were a huge trend seen on the Fall 2012 runways, so when I found this top on eBay last month for less than $15, I decided to give it a try (my only complaint is that it wrinkles quite easily, as evidenced by these photos).  My husband refers to this as my "disco fever" look...obviously he wasn't a fan.  But when styled in a simple way, I believe gilded pieces can look very chic.  Another example of metallics done right is this look on Kate Bosworth, which I love and happens to be perfect for summer.  I also think this blouse will transition well into fall too - peeking out from under a sweater & paired with camel trousers or a leather pencil skirt.




What I'm wearing:
J. Crew shirt (via eBay - similar here or here), Gap trousers, Urban Expressions clutch c/o Baghaus (here), ELLE pumps, Dockers aviators (on sale here), Bracelets: J. Crew, Vintage & Tasha (similar)

*I'm thrilled to be featured as the guest blogger over on Baghaus today - check out the full article, more photos from this shoot & my favorite picks from their site here.

Love the top....the wrinkles edge it up a bit....consider giving the sleeves one extra roll so,the sleeves end closer to your waist emphasizing your slimness.
Xoxo!

I love the metallic blouse...more evidence that men usually don't know what they are talking about when it comes to fashion lol

This is a great blouse and even better because it was only $15. Great find! I love it with the white pants but I agree will be fabulous transitioning into fall, too!

Oh my goodness you are genius. I have a metallic shirt that I have worn with soft pastel pink shorts and I have been wondering what else to wear with it. I kept holding it up against my white blazer but then clueless about what to wear on the bottom. I really like it with white too. Why didn't I think of my white pants that were only 3 feet away! Geez! Thanks for this!

I love this blouse and love how you put it together. I think your hubby kinda nailed it with the 'disco fever' reference but it's done so modern and sophisticated! I love it. I LOVE that clutch!

Those white pants are perfection. I can never find things at Gap - their sizing is difficult for me!
