Beat the Monday Blues - Colour My Week with Silver

Monday, November 29, 2010

'Colour My Week' is back today; an initiative to introduce a colour at the start of a working week, to help eliminate the 'Monday Blues'. I invite blog readers to participate, by linking your own colour related fashion items back to this blog post. I wanted to focus on a sparkly shiny colour this week, because Christmas is less than a month away, so lets all share something Silver!

According to an article written by on "Silver, especially a shiny, metallic silver, is cool like gray but livelier, more playful. Silver can be sleek and modern or impart a feeling of ornate riches."

Silver is... classic movies (the silver screen), coins, metal, glitter, keys, cars, cutlery..

A pair of my favourite thrifted shoes, by Melbourne fashion label Kinki Gerlinki, purchased in Salvos last year for just $7. I discovered they are *ahem* .. a size too small for me.. but I can't get rid of them, I love them too much! I wear them if we are going out and sitting down somewhere.. is that terrible?!

And some second-hand/recycled/handmade Silver beauties found online:

Reconstructed silver vintage dress US$115 from SweetTeaNY on etsy

Upcycled Metal Dragonfly Buckle AU$25 from Celtsmith on Ethikl

Handmade Marla Wrap Skirt NZ$60 by New Zealand designer desiree for sale on

Recycled Long Circles Necklace AU$59 by Australian designer Epheriell on BlueCaravan

Come on then folks, what silver goodies have you found recently? Do you have a silver jacket hiding away in your wardrobe? Perhaps you are making a pair of silver earrings for a Christmas gift? Have you spotted a silver dress for sale on eBay that you would like to wear to a party? Share your recycled Silver finds on the linky link below.

All shades of grey & silver are my favourite things at the moment. It was just pointed out to me that every pair of shoes I wear are silver or sparkly! Lovely images up there, I do like that skirt..
