Bronze is one of those colours , you know it is OK on you but tricky to wear. I bought this top when I was
having a bit of meltdown on what to wear for my sons wedding in February. I already had half of my outfit sorted but my original top just wasn't right, so a shopping I did go, big mistake never buy for something
special in a hurry. Fortunately it was on sale at a much reduced price plus I had a birthday voucher from the store, so no real harm done and it may get outings on different occasions.
The problem is not so much the colour rather the shape, it is rather square and boxy and would benefit from
some shaping. Herein lies another dilemma as the fabric will not alter easily, the mesh strips are fragile and
will probably just become a series of holes if stitched.Here I have tried a soft sash , not quite right I feel,
so I am on the look out for a wider tie.
Without the tie, this is how I would prefer it to look. Anyhow, not the end of the world, mistakes happen
and I have now found another top that I am much happier with.
On the bonus side the bronze top gave me an excuse to show of this fine, woven metal cuff with its intricate
rosette that was a generous Christmas gift from the owner of the store where I am working .
Playing around with lighting this week , these shots were taken late in the evening just before sunset, I
rather like the soft effect as opposed to the harsh light of an Aussie Summer day.The only drawback
being we visited a parkland near home on the top of a hill and it was a bit windy, hence the windswept hair.
Wearing a bronze mesh top paired with my Moyuru pants happily billowing in the breeze , bronze cuff,
silvery neckpiece , dangly earrings and bronze Robert Clergerie wedges.
