I have an obsessive personality when it comes to fashion, last year it was burgundy and coats. This year it's silver, black and well, coats (because you can never have to many, especially here in New York). Metallics are particularly popular at this time when every mannequin is adorned in some gleaming contraption for Christmas party shopping. Metallics are usually accompanied by sequins in some way, shape or form and while there is nothing wrong with a bit of tinsel now and then, the last few season have seen it become somewhat repetitive. This year I will be choosing a bold, futuristic silver to replace my favoured sequins jacket you may remember from here, for more shine less sparkle. What do you think? Will you embrace this intergalactic shade?

Above is my Christmas wish list of shimmering favorites, to be worn separately or all together (if channeling Bender from Futurama, my unlikely style icon ). Below some more high shine pieces! x
