No Heavy Metal Here

There is no need for "Heavy Metal" when it comes to the Spring 2012 Metallic Trend...let's focus more on low-key metal songs like "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" from Poison or "Patience" from Guns & Roses.  Let's not go crazy with the metallics....stay soft, subtle and simple.

In case you didn't already know...take this as your warning...these metals are everywhere!  They are fun, and you and I both, could easily get carried away.   Please, in the name of hair bands, don't be caught in public in head-to-toe shine.  It's okay to mix metals together and even layer copper over silver...just keep it elegant and muted.  A good example of this is shown below.  You will see that the entire outfit has some sort of metallic flare, but it doesn't shout out "disco ball"'s elegant.


Because this blog is about affordable fashion and beauty, I decided to mosey on over to the place we all love and adore...Target!  It's the GREATEST place on Earth.  Take a look at all the metallic inspired items below, take a mental note and look for these amazing finds next time you are there...which I am sure will be tomorrow!

Cheers to shining like a penny in the sun!  Cheers to being a twinkle in the sky!
Cheers to NOT being a disco ball on the dance floor!
