This week’s DIY, requested by a reader, was inspired by the abundant and delightful use of pearls in Chanel‘s Spring 2012 Collection. Though I’m usually not the biggest fan of pearls, I actually fell in love with the way Karl affixed them along the back of necks and pushed oversized ones into loose updos. His modern interpretation of the underwater gem just goes to show that pearls can be worn any day, at any age! With a few easy steps, you’ll be able to whip up a handful of pearl hairpins as fast as you can say “Sally sold seashells by the seashore” 10 times. Backwards.
How fun and inspiring are these ensembles from emerging Italian brand MSGM? I’m loving the floral prints, metallic details, geometric patterns, tweed accents, bold use of colors, spiked heels, and glitter sunnies . . . the entire pre-fall collection is head to toe perfection!
Earlier this week, Palmer of Aether Apparel introduced me to these sexy and innovative ceramic megaphones from the brilliant minds at En & Is. Honestly, I’m flipping the WTF out. The gold one is already at the very top of my wish list – so much so that I’m ready to put myself on a temporary shopping ban just to have one. There, I said it. It’s that good.
