Planning for the Aussie Curves metallic week started around here about the time that I used one of the only metal toned items I owned in the last Target post. I realised soon afterwards that this theme was coming up and I get a little stuck with what I might do. I don’t own a lot of metal toned items. Even though I’d LOVE some rose gold toe capped shoes… BUT I had this chain link necklace with three tone metal from the clothes swap in November and figured I’d build something around that.

Then I got sick. And tired. And sick and tired.

So for the first time in eons, I’m posting an outfit I put together specifically for the theme, wore for 5 minutes and took off. Before crawling back into bed, obviously. The necklace is still in but no longer the focus and I’m really happy with the result, I even look awake and like I’m set for a night out with the girls that involves a casual dinner and lots of drinks. Casual cool.ย I mean sparkle, silver sequins leggings, how could I not!?

These sequins leggings from ASOS Curve are on loan to me from Nat, are a size 22 and are for sale for $20 + postage if you’d like them. I have the pictures without the black and white filter if you want the colour details etc, just email me.ย The black and white analogue film filter is in use as a distraction so you won’t notice I’m dying a little. Filter win.

So yes! Metallicย week. Not so smooth but still has turned out quite well, I think. Metallicย is such a versatile and trendy item that you can make just about any outfit look modern and on trend using it. I see and hear a lot about rose gold at the moment {still} and for me, I can’t go past silver. So choose your metal and layer it on and congratulate yourself for being such a cool kid.

That’s about it from me. I’m going back to bed.

    Hope you recover quickly, Melissa ๐Ÿ™‚

  • kp

    feel better soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Monique

    The necklace is from equip! I have the same one!

  • You look so chic! I love everything about this outfit. Are the leggings a bit scratchy?

    • Thank you Sophie. And surprisingly, no! They aren’t itchy or scratchy at all. I think they must be double layer or something.

  • Gi Csome

    As soon as you feel better you should go for a drink dressed like this! Itยดs such a fun and chic outfit.

    • Thank you. It certainly turned out well and has inspired me to drag out my patterned pants again. I’ll be going for a drink but I’ve already sold the leggings so the new owner probably wants them. Haha.

  • Brittany Norma

    Love the look, those leggings are amazing. Get better soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you lovely. The leggings are pretty darn cool. Too bad I live in the country and they’d never get worn. Remind me to get out more, would you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Brittany Norma

        Sure. Though I’m a massive fan of dressing up for the hell of it wherever I go, it’s good fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • KazzBang

    I’ve been tempted by these but have the same question as Sophie about whether they’re scratchy? i find sometimes when I wear sequins that I’m left with a lot of teeny tiny scratches/cuts ๐Ÿ™

    • They really aren’t scratchy at all. I wore them in the car, for the photos, a trip through a drive thru and home again without a single itch. It’s a miracle. That NEVER happens. Sequins can and usually are killer. I think these are double layered or something.

  • alisonspence

    Those leggings are FABULOUS! Love how the glitz is on the front and black on the back. And if you hadn’t said you were sick I would have never have guessed, you’re looking as sparkly as ever! I’m with you, silver all the way! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • A bit awesome, right!? Glad to have found them a new home for Nat.
      Haha. Thank you. The cold and flu medicine must’ve kicked in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • SpiikerKat

    Love the black and white shots! you look really pretty despite being sick x

  • you hide it well Mel – couldn’t really tell you were sick. I own those tights but have never worn them…. Get better soon

    • Thanks Claire, maybe I need to stop mentioning it. If you want to sell yours, I have some ladies who missed out who would pay the $20 + postage…. Hmmm? Hoarder? ๐Ÿ˜›

      • not hoarder…..just haven’t found the perfect occasion. and that comment may find you banned from my wardrobe…

        • Baahaha. Sen-se-tive! No problem, you keep your pants but PLEASE don’t ban me from the wardrobe. What if I promise not to touch? ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Sarah Collins

    There is no other way to describe those pants other than fabulous! haha

  • Jocelyn Brewer

    Looking fierce lady! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • flashionaffair

    Love those leggings! love the black and white photos this week too! gorgeous lady!

    • Thank you. The leggings really are very cool. Not much opportunity to wear them in my little town though, so off they go to a new home.

      I know they weren’t that popular with people so I appreciate that. Last night I even went to put the colour ones back in. Haha.

  • Those legging are amazing! hope you are well and truly on the road to recovery now x

    • Thank you lovely, I am feeling better. Worn out after the last few days at work but glad to have the weekend to rest again! WIN.

  • I have been so tempted by those leggings, you look great!

  • Olivia

    Ummmmmm, so I think you will please be putting those leggings in your car for me! LOVE!
