Holiday 2010: Mixing Metals

Dec 1, 2010

I love sequins.  I love sparkle.  And I love shine.  What can I say?  I’m a Texas pageant queen trapped in a Hill Staffer’s body.  

Today, I decided to blend two different metallic, sequined pieces to create something for those of us with an un-curable love of sparkle.  But instead of mixing metallics of the same shade, I decided to pair a muted gold sequin blouse with bronze accessories.  

Blouse.  Vince Sequined Crepe T-shirt (Net-a-Porter, $295)

Pants.  Modern Tux Pant (White House, Black Market, $88)

Shoes.  LillyBee Carrie Pumps (SimplySoles, $185)

Clutch.  Vanessa Satin Evening Bag (eBags, $32)

Earrings.  Stephen Dweck Green Bead and Bronze Drops (Last Call, $100)
