Shine on, you crazy diamond.

Excuse me, the reflection off of your tin dress is blinding. Such is the price of high fashion. Just don’t ride around in the front seat at night for fear of headlight reflection on unsuspecting passersby.

Amp up the heavy metal with some serious glow this spring. Take these head turners from the spring 2011 runway:

First contender: shining blazer from the lovely Balmain. A nice touch, wearable, and tres chic. LOVE. Next up is this striking number in this blue/purple/plum in a pretty classic shape by Thakoon. LIKE. Last we have the future costume of the Tin Man’s wife, via Rodarte, complete with matching socks-in-sandals and golden lips. LEAVE. This is why we take the term Ready to Wear with a grain of salt. Fashion is art, after all.

What this means for us: Get your glow on. Love the metallic. Embrace it. Let your soul shine through. And have fun with sparkles. Sometimes the inner 6 year old in us needs a chance to play.

For something you might one day find in your closet, check out these more pocket-friendly alternatives:


1) Alice + Olivia Elyse Metallic Blazer casual, neutral, fitted, and sparkling. Play this up big time both casually and with formal wear
2)Madewell Addison Pleated Tulip Skirt the color is great but not too striking. This really pops off black tights.
3)BCBGeneration Strapless Metallic Dress girl’s got to have her playthings.
