Metallic Mondays

Have you ever bought an item of clothing that even in the store you are not sure when or where you will wear it? I have... and on more then one occasion. Often these purchases turn out to be braver then my usual choices in terms of the print, texture or material. This metallic silver jacket is a perfect example. I bought it in a Zara sale a while ago. I think I felt sorry for it, sat there with a full rack of its fellow silver comrades and the odd David Bowie ground control reference being thrown in there general direction. With that it became a challenge. My thoughts were 'I will buy this jacket and I will make it work'. I often make these decisions when an item is in the sale, but then don't we all buy things we don't need because it's cheaper and in the sale? This Jacket was a bargain at £10 pounds, and today, in the rare English heat, I decided to dress like 'a chicken in tin foil', these are not my words, but the words of a passer by. I'm pretty sure I have expressed in a previous post the joy it  gives me when someone hates my outfit enough to comment out loud... I really thought I had toned  it down with the black. Obviously not enough for some.
