Sammy Dress: Vintage Cape Review

No comments : recently contacted me to check out a product of theirs. I haven't done a lot of clothing review so I figured why not? In terms of shopping online, I often find it difficult to buy clothes just because I have a weird body shape. So I absolutely need to try on clothes before I buy it. 

So I always wanted a cloak ever since Blair Waldorf rocked it in two different episodes of Gossip Girl. God, I miss that show! Going a little off topic here, but I think it's so cute that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody got married. I know it's wishful thinking to have an OC/Gossip Girl cross over, but that would be so awesome. My latest television obsession is Scandal and in a pretty recent episode, Olivia Pope wore a gorgeous black cape. That show is my new style inspiration now that Gossip Girl is off the air. Anyways, when I saw this cloak on SammyDress, I just had to have it.

Alexander McQueen Spring RTW 14' Inspired Nail Art

I just want it to be Spring, so for inspiration I've been looking through Spring and Summer on Vogue's website. I'm just honestly so tired of winter, I want to start wearing cute dresses and sandals. For this nail art, the design was inspired by Alexander McQueen's Spring Ready to Wear 2014 collection. The collection has a lot of primary colour and what I would consider as rocker chic. There are a lot of cool intricate patterns and leather too! I tried to represent the design as best I could.

Oscar de la Renta Autumn/Winter 13-14' Nail Art (St. Patrick's Nail Art #2)

1 comment :
On to St Patrick's Nail Art #2! This time it is inspired by a dress from Oscar de la Renta Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 collection. I love mix of texture and the different shades of greens.


In order to replicate the ruffled texture, I used a green gel pen to create rough and messy strokes. I also alternated between light and heavy strokes to create shadows and highlights. I applied a translucent and shimmery green polish on top of the pen drawing so that it lighten and blend a little more.

Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 14'-15' Nail Art (St. Patrick's Nail #1)

St. Patrick's day is coming up in few days so I will be creating a few green-themed nail art idea to wear on that day. I'm pretty excited for it since I am having my fourth annual St. Patrick's day party. Now that I'm out of school (for almost 2.5 years now, holy cow!), any time I get to see a big group of my friends together is always a blast. For this first St. Patrick's nail art, I gave a green spin to the design below from the Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 14-15' collection. I love the black cut-outs, again it looks complicated but it is surprisingly easy to do. All you need is a steady hand! 

Last year, I created a Chanel inspired nail art with a St. Patrick's twist. So if you're looking for something easier to do, check out the tutorial I did. If you have the time and patience to do this check out the materials and tutorial after the jump!

Peter Pilotto Spring/Summer 14' Inspired Nail Art

I am so over winter already, so I'm bringing out my bright coloured polishes and rocking spring themed nail art to brighten my mood. I recently picked up a few items from the Peter Pilotto and Target collaboration. When I went to Target in Toronto on the day it the collection was made available, the rack was virtually empty. A week and a half later, I went to visit my hometown in Sudbury and the Peter Pilotto section was pretty much untouched. I was able to pick up a lot of stuff that I had my eye on. I absolutely love Peter Pilotto designs because of their use of vibrant colours and contrasting patterns. The collection just seems fun!

This design is inspired by Peter Pilotto Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Honestly, out of the whole collection, I felt this design was the easiest to replicate.
