Giorgio Armani SS 12
How very Man Men Esque, right? Peplum is making such a comeback this Spring. The cut of these pants, the placement of the slit. adds the perfect amount of femininity. I’m hoping this trend catches on and more designers take notice to bring this more main stream.
This is such a simple DIY and bring a touch of glitter into the most UNEXPECTED place!
The glow and prisms that display at night are beautiful.
Give your hallway sconces extra sparkle using blackout lampshades that can be purchased from a home-supply store. Working in sections, apply craft glue to the inside of a lampshade using a paintbrush. Sprinkle glass glitter over the glue. Let dry for 1 hour, and shake off excess glitter. Repeat until entire inner surface is coated.
And since we’re going RETRO today, let’s talk nails! I swear I had a dress with the same colors and pattern in the 80′s! How adorable with an all white Spring outfit. Daisy are so simple so paint!
Apply a dark-colored nail polish. This will be the background for your daisies. The darker the background color, the more your white daisies pop. Allow the first coat of background color to dry and then apply a second coat. Allow both coats to fully dry (at least 20 to 30 minutes).
Use a small-bristled paintbrush or toothpick to paint a yellow circle in the center of each nail. The circle will be the center of your daisy. Simply dip the paintbrush or toothpick into your nail polish and apply a small dot to the nail.
Draw the white petals of the daisy. Clean off the yellow paint from your paintbrush and dry the bristles with a cloth, or use a new toothpick. You can draw straight lines out from the center dot or encircle the center dot with white dots — the latter might be easier if you don’t have a steady hand. You’ll probably need about six or seven lines or dots to make a full-looking daisy. Allow the white petals to fully dry.
Happy Thursday Dolls!
