Balmain Fall 2012 Campaign

Balmain's Fall campaign has been out for a while, but it is still one of my favorites of the season. The more pared down ads are definitely starting to have an impact in the face of excessive accessories-focused spreads.

Summer in the City

Just a few snaps from an unreasonably hot weekend day spent in the city wearing a vintage-inspired surf shirt and my new favorite glitter Miu Miu shades.

Proenza Schouler Fall 2012 Nail Art

When I first saw OPI's new Pure Lacquer nail polish strips a lightbulb went off. The metallic scale print  of the "Reptile" strips has a lot in common with the beautiful Far-Eastern patterns from Proenza Schouler's Fall 2012 collection--all they needed was a few angular black lines. To round out the full look, I painted Lady Amherst Pheasats (thank you Vogue.com for identifying the birds) on two fingers on each hand.

Trend: Eyeing You

Not mad at this trend towards beautiful, not so evil, eye-inspired jewelry.

Polished Nail Art

In case somehow you missed it, you should probably watch my new nail show on Look TV. I've gone ahead and pulled each look out separately so that you can choose between Dior, Altuzarra and Chanel.

Trend: Fancy Back Earrings

I think the rule of three can be thrown out here and detailed earring backs can be fully considered a trend. The first piece in this category that I was really drawn to was Pamela Love's Lapis Spike Earring that I wrote about in May. Since then I placed my order for a pair on Moda Operandi and have watched the trend grow. The styles of these earrings run the gamut from understated to over the top, but one thing's for sure; the arm party has moved North.
