I share a few qualities with the Magpie, Australia’s second most hated bird (after the glorious bin chicken, of course). Dark and beady eyes, a tendency to snap at/physically harm anyone who dares come a little bit too close, an affinity for wearing only black and white. Recently I’ve taken on another of the Magpie’s trademarks – love of all things shiny.
The moment I saw this metallic silver skirt on Instagram, I fell into a love so deep that it possessed me to refresh the site’s ‘new arrivals’ page every single morning until I saw it listed. Styled with some vintage Harley Davidson and beat up Doc Martens, it’s the ultimate get up, whether you’re wandering around at the markets on a Sunday, or kicking back with a beer or two (or ten) on a Friday night. And because shiny leather is not extra enough, the extreme drop of the armhole offers the opportunity to show off your cutest bra. Or just get your boobs out.
