Tuesday Trends: Heavy Metals

All right readers, are you ready to rock? I said, "Are you ready to ROCK?" I can't hear you! This week's Tuesday Trend is wicked hot. Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready for Heavyyyy Metaaaaals?

Although metallics were listed as a trend for Fall '06, I feel like 2007 is the year of metal.

From top left, clockwise: shoes - pierre hardy, gold diamond necklace - urban outfitters, purse - Louis Vuitton, clutch - chanel, boot & watch - urban, ring - boucheron, jacket - gryphon @ revolve clothing, top - marc by marc jacobs, vintage dress at etsy, gold leggings - american apparel, dress - badgley mischka.

I love the looks of metallics. I think this time of year is perfect for a little sparkle. When the days feel shorter and the sun is gone too soon, a little shine can really perk things up. I'd like to bring your attention to the AMAZING dress from SkivvyLuLuVintage at etsy. Only $39! I've also been adding and removing the gold leggings from american apparel to my cart. What do you think? Too flashy? What would you pair them with other than a basic black outfit?

If you are a total metal head, we've got you covered. From stationery to wedding invitations, we have everything you need to let your personality shine.
