The news of Yves Saint Laurent evolving into Saint Laurent, announced months before Paris Fashion Week, had everyone eagerly anticipating the label’s debut under the direction of newly appointed Hedi Slimane. Sure, the name had been shortened but there was certainly no shortage of glamour and swagger. Oversized fedoras, floor sweeping skirts, glittery capes and le smoking tuxedos screamed 70s rock ‘n’ roll. We absolutely loved it and are dying to get our hands on one of those stunning hats by next spring.
We were immediately inspired the moment we saw bare nails with blood-like, drippy polish accompany Prabal Gurung‘s spring collection at New York Fashion Week. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and thus, the timing couldn’t have been better to recreate this deliciously daring DIY for our phalanges. Though a more vampy, burgundy color went down the runway, I went for more vibrant red . . . but the best part about this tutorial is that you can make it your own with just about any color, for any season!

Daniele and Jodie Snyder, the creative duo behind one of our favorite jewelry labels Dannijo, sure understand the importance of presentation. Sara from Collage Vintage recently gave us a peek into their New York studio and we just love the way they’ve brilliantly transformed some of their gorgeous pieces into decorative, armor-like emsembles.
