WIW 5/17: Brand new "orphan" gold lame blouse styled!

OK, this isn't really an orphan, but this new gold lame blouse got very little love on the K/R thread and Denise said it could be on the fast track to the orphanage. So, since it's a hard item to style I figured it qualifies for the orphan challenge. What do you think--worth keeping or not? Do you like it better styled? DD and DS loved the shirt (DD said "Oooh, gold and shiny!" and DS said "Just like Bob the Builder and the Golden Hammer!"). DH wasn't a fan, but he didn't ask me to take it off either. I'm wearing this to work--it's Disco Friday. LOL!

    I think you've done a great job styling it!  I have to admit that I still don't really like it - gold lame has too many negative connotations for me.  But fashion is subjective, and if you like it, that's all that counts.

    I liked it before and I like it even more now. It looks like a subtle gold to me--interesting finish in my opinion. I think it really suits your style and is fun. I don't think you will let it become an orphan.

    Well it does look pretty good with that skirt I have to admit. Do you wear a lab coat at work? If so, only the front slice of the shirt is going to show and that will help to tone it down. This outfit would look really great with a denim jacket over top too.

    Hmm. I think I still think it needs a jacket. Full on lame in the middle of the day and not being in the tropics... but I also think I still like it. I like shiny too!
