The Wizard of Oz was always my favourite movie growing up, but I always found style inspiration from Dorothy instead of the Tin Man. Metallics are old news trend-wise, but are currently undergoing a space-age revival at Balenciaga, Hussein Chalayan etc. I was never a convert to metallics before. Shiny purses and shoes always looked gaudy to me, but retailers are getting things right the second time around. Though the part of my heart dedicated to metallic purses remains icy and unaffected by global warming, I'm really warming up to metallic shoes. Since most of my outfits are black and grey, a gold or silver shoe would add the appropriate POP! effect I desire. There's a pair of silver almond-toe mary janes at Winners that I'm keeping my eye on. If they continue to consume my thoughts, I might just have to make them mine.
