Mixing In Metallic

Dress (The Limited), Belt (Target), Shoes (Nine West), Purse (Francescas), Necklace (Anna Grey), Earrings (Francescas), Watch (Michael Kors), Bangle (Express), Arrow Bangle (Poshlocket), Sunnies (Ray Ban),  Metallic Nail Polish (Ulta - Bare Minimum and High Roller)

I might have a slight obsession with the shape of this dress.  Classic shapes have always had my heart and I loves stripes of every kind.  Each season, as new trends come out, I love to find ways to mix them in with classic pieces and looks like this one.  Metallic is a big trend this year and I love using it to accents looks.  The mix of gold into the belt, shoes and nail polish has a soft way of "edgying" this look up, making it a little more fun.

How are you mixing in Metallic this season?

Linking up with these wonderfully dressed ladies today: Style Elixir, Real Girl Style, Plane Pretty, Trend Spin, Kiwi Womens Style, The Pleated Poppy, and Transatlantic Blonde.

  12. I love this look! I was in search of a black and white striped dress forever and finally found something recently (http://thirtiestwocents.blogspot.com/2013/07/the-hamburglar-diy-statement-necklace.html), but this would have been very high on my list. And the gold belt is such a perfect finish! I was told I looked like the Hamburglar, but your version definitely doesn't give off that vibe - haha. Found you through Trend Spin Link Up - thanks for sharing.

  13. This is lovely! I haven't really tried any metallic accessories yet (Trying to not spend money), but that belt is tempting me! haha.

  14. Lovely dress, is so feminine and fun! The gold accents make it so glam!
