Ok, ok we know. Metallics are everywhere. And we do mean everywhere. It was the single most revived trend for Spring 2010. Every music maven rocked a metallic look at the VMA's last Sunday night (including Pink and Shakira who showed up sporting the same Balmain strapless chain-encusted mini. Gasp.). These days, you can't attend an art opening or movie premiere without knocking into some bright and shiny thing.

And we get it. After a year of saving and being smart and safe and holding back due to the recession, it only makes sense that fashionista want a little dguge, a little bling, a little excess. But the trend itself has become a little well, excessive. I mean whoever thought the day would come when fashion rags would announce that SILVER was the new black?

That said we've been hunting through our racks trying to come up with something anti-trend or at least fashion forward. For example, next spring we're fairly certain that tides will change and yellow will be the new black and so we looked for something marigold to throw into the mix. But when we spied this metallic Chanel dress, we knoew we post it up. Featuring signature Chanel hallmarks such as boucle trim and 20s tennis inspires styling, this baby is super chic and stylish and frankly, depending upon how you styled it, could be worn in any season. I guess that's the appeal of Chanel. What can we say. Frankly, good design never goes out of style.

*Chanel Spring 2004 metallic deco dress. In a size 36 and in mint condition. Priced at $945.
