Monthly Archives: September 2012

on a rainy day, sometimes (usually) the best thing to do is a DIY.  Earlier today I found this fashion week inspired nail art tutorial that I thought was amazing. I had already seen the spring 2013 collection, but it never crossed my mind to replicate the designs on my nails…

here is the tutorial I used to replicate the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013 look.

and here is what my nails look like:

 

not bad for my first time.

Happy Friday!! 

This is a cute little video a rookie, Olivia Bee, made with her boyfriend for Hermes!

here are all the things i love about this short film:

  1. It was made by a fabulous rookie
  2. It is for Hermes, creators of the most elegant fashion goods
  3. i love french/france/etc!
  4. who doesn’t like colored rabbit and a spot of tea?
  5. cute couples in company of the other listed things are never detestable.
  6. classic cars and doll house surburbia (WHERE DOES IT EXIST?!)
  7. plus, check out her bedazzled shoes. i smell an impending DIY…

enjoy the film guys!

As in the past, Target has once again produced a new and promising high-end designer collaboration. This time with Kirna Zabete. Some label names that have worked with target in the past include, Rodarte and Missoni. I am really looking forward to acquiring some new pieces for the fall. Last year I bought the coolest Missoni vest! 

September 9th, Target will put their latest Kirna Zabete X Target collection out for sale. The collection includes heeled suede boots and many patterned tops and dresses. Prices range from $9.99 to $199.99. (doesn’t get more affordable than that…)

for those of you that haven’t seen 3.1 Phillip Lim’s fall collection, it looks like it came straight from the pages of a Marvel comic book. With that being said, he collaborated with some people to make his own comic book. The comic is called, “Kill the Night”. He describes it as,

A COMIC INSPIRED BY 3.1 PHILLIP LIM’S FALL 2012 
COLLECTION AND THE NEO-NOIR HEROINES WHO EMBODY IT.
CO-WRITTEN BY PHILLIP LIM, THIS IS A STORY OF DUALITY.
DAY AND NIGHT, BLACK AND WHITE, LOVE AND BETRAYAL.
THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM. LOOK AGAIN.
I think it came out spectacular. I love strong female characters, and comic books (specifically the x-men & thor comics). When you put those two together it’s a glorious marriage. The “neo-noir” is very consistent with the fall collection & I can easily see where he drew inspiration from his clothing. It finishes everything nicely, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

All over the world, people are preparing for Fashion’s Night Out 2012 . September 6th designer brands and celebrities will convene in big venues for a glorious fashion event. Some people will shop, others will go for photo-opts, and there will those who will go out for the drinks and experience. You can find a FNO anywhere from New York to London to Australia to Japan. (Basically, thank you Vogue & CFDA)

I wish I could say I was jet-setting my way to New York City and partying it up in one of my favorite cities on a Thursday night… but I am not. I have school and other compromising responsibilities, (SIGH). Though we make do with what we can, right?! So here’s a post for all you Miami-dwellers. I hope you can make it out to the nearest mall/venue and enjoy a night of lovely food and fashion small talk!
