What I wore Monday: Metallic

I’ve been dying to wear this jacket for ages. I got it free from a friend who was having a big wardrobe clean-out before she moved overseas. It seems as though some trends from the 80s and 90s are rearing their ugly heads these days in Dunedin (seriously we are talking denim, chambray and midriff baring tops that tie off at the bottom). I’m not a huge fan in general of these trends, but I do love the feeling evoked by this jacket (and yes, it had shoulder pads but they have since been ripped out).

jacket: free from a friend (who probably originally got at an op-shop), top: my ex-work, necklace: modcloth, jeans: seven for all mankind jeggings, shoes: jeffrey campbell x free people

Feelin' the 90s

I paired it up with a gold necklace and my much hunted for black and brown brogues. However, I would have loved to pair it over a metallic gold top but for some reason, I don’t appear to own one! This will surely have to be rectified. However, the shopping ban continues so instead I will share some of my fave metallic gold finds from the glorious internet.

How are you feeling about metallics? Can they be worn during the day, or are they only for a night out? Also, do you enjoy posts about my fave fashion finds on the internet? In particular, please let me know if you buy something I’ve pointed out on trademe. I do this just for fun, but would still love feedback! Happy bargain hunting!
