More Metallic

For last week's Refashion Runway metallic challenge, I had originally planned an all gold outfit, pairing this oversized gold sparkly sweater with my pleated curtain skirt, but it turned out to be too much gold for me. It's difficult to capture the sparkles, but trust me, they're there.

Updating this pullover was incredibly easy. I carefully removed the white polyester collar and cuffs. Then I took in the sides to fit. And finally, I put it on backward. Yep, backward!

I'll still totally wear this top, just not with an entirely gold ensemble.

Nice job! A girl should have at least one shiny or sparkly top in her closet.

I really like this! The V-neck in the back is a nice touch, too. I'd have never thought of that...
