WIWW – Mixing Metals

WIWW – Mixing Metals

Hello friends and happy Hump Day Wednesday. I hope all is well in your world. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Headed to Hollywood Part II – Scenes from the Shoot, I have some great photos to show you.

Having come back to the cold weather in Delaware with snow flurries in the forecast I opted to wear pants twice last week. Do you mix your metals? I mean do you wear silver accessories with gold accessories, bronze with rose gold, etc? I think most of you will say, no, but I actually enjoy doing so and have quite a few pieces of mixed metals that I love to wear.

I like that this sweater has gold threading but that doesn’t automatically make me want to wear gold tone jewelry, instead I rather like wearing silver and gold mixed metals.  I recently read an article Four Secrets of Style:Rules That Are Meant To Be Broken, and one of those rules are mixing metals.

boots and clutch from Rainbow Shops

The boots were a recent purchase from Rainbow Shops, they had a Buy One Get another ½ price and I wore them to LA.  Believe it or not they are very comfortable and didn’t hurt my feet walking through the busy airports. The clutch was also purchased at Rainbow Shops.  The pants are Talbot, thrifted and this sweater is so old I can’t remember where it was purchased.

The mixed metal necklace, and “Basketball Wives” inspired earrings are both from; ring from Avon and bracelet from a flea market vendor. Mixing metals allows you to wear your costume jewelry much more often.
