It may be sunny but it is still chilly… one of the last times I get to wear my Uniqlo J+ coat. I’m on trend with the pop of neon from my LemLem scarf but most of all I love the vintage brooch that my cousin passed on to me from my Aunt. They know I will wear the weirdest pieces. Worn with the Liz Claiborne sweater I scored at the thrifty in Florida, In My Air blouse, cat skirt found on Etsy and ASOS monk straps with my dear YSL muse bag.
Mixing patterns and stripes with this thrifted Liz Claiborne sweater and and cat skirt I found at 4getmenotshop on Etsy. Keeping it colorful with these ASOS monkstraps that I am obsessed with.
Yves Saint Laurent FW 12 : Runway Recap
Stefano Pilati’s final collection for Yves Saint Laurent was heavy in symbolism. From the white calla lilies to the body armor of chain mail dresses there was a sense of finality. It is believed that the calla lily represents purity, death and rebirth while chain mail was used to protect the body from death in the middle ages.
I personally found all the leather pieces to be too heavy and severe but I thought the capes and knit capelet above were so elegant. It is as if the skin slashes through the garments. As usual, the shoes were stunning in sculptural metallic designs.
I think it’s lovely how delicate the heavy metal dresses can look.
You can view the full collection @ NYMag where I culled these images from and the detail shots from the excellent detail gallery visit Style.com.
STYLIST SECRET: if you spill something on a favorite item and it stains just go ahead and tie dye it! Recovered BCBG dress with YSL belt.
Amazing collection, I love the cross over tops and the mixture of colors
More seafoam green for ss’12. I’m not mad at it.
MANICURE MUSE: Yves Saint Laurent Spring ‘12
Never underestimate the power of a first impression, because I couldn’t get YSL’s opening look out of my mind. The boldest among a collection of dark purples and French navys, this graphic topper unprecedentedly stood alone. I love the hand-drawn effect of the print and had loads of fun doodling this nail art. I used Office by American Apparel ($6 at americanapparel.com) as the base and topped it off with my trusty nail art pen and Vinyl by Orly.
Brilliant idea, MissLadyFinger!
