Metallics At Noon

When I wake up feeling tired and dull, which is most days, I may reach for something metallic in an effort to elevate my mood and brighten my complexion. I’m a big advocate of wearing metallics or sequins during the day for this reason. Why leave such clothing in the back of the closet for date night or special events?

I bought this vintage metallic silver dress in Las Vegas many years ago. It’s slightly too big for me. I go back and forth on having it altered but at the moment, I like it oversized and loose. It nips in at the waist so it doesn’t make me look like I’m wearing a sack. I’m over the moon for the extra-long sleeves. Always a big selling point for me. This dress easily lifts my mood; 1. It’s a dress and way out of the ordinary for me on a daily basis, 2. It’s shiny and bright, 3. Overcompensates for a messy hair day, and 4. Couldn’t be easier to style. You don’t even need jewelry. I’m wearing it here with PVC boots from Nasty Gal.
