Aussie Curves: Metallic
This bolero is a new fave recent find of mine. Another op-shop score, I didn't have to go far for it. Found it at Hurstville: one suburb over from me. While it has a couple of opshops, they're not usually huge profferers of awesome vintage finds. In spite of that, I got lucky this time and found this awesome gold 80s number there a couple of weeks ago for $8.
I have a bit of a fetish for retro metallic fabrics. One of my first blog posts here features a similar gold jacquard fabric circa the 80s and I'm also a big fan of lamé like my purple retro frock here.
The tunic I've got on with the bolero is from TS 14+ and would never have thought to buy one of these myself as their stuff isn't usually my style. It was a hand-me-down from a family friend but I've had it for years and find it to be such a handy layering piece for outfits like this I actually end up wearing it a lot.
I'm wearing it here with:
- Black merino wool tube-scarf from my Grandma
- Black leggings by Gisela Ramirez
- Black creepers from Demonia
- Tunic from TS
