You have a bad day too, or just enjoy in silver?
I just wrote about bad day and white-silver-black combinations.

Creo que me gusta más el dorado para vestidos y el plata para accesorios con ropa en negro, pero has puesto vestidos plateados muy bonitos...

I never thought it would happen, but silver has finally usurped gold as my metallic of choice. And it feels so right.

With my complexion and hair, I tend to look best in Gold and Bronze. But sometimes I wonder if I should start branching out to Silver more? Greta post!

I am loving the metallic colors I've been seeing in fashion lately, which is funny because this season I have been all about the muted earthy tones. The silver pants here are particularly badass!

I've always preferred silver over gold. The Blumarine dress on the top is so gorgeous...i love how it feels like it's made from some rare graphite.
