Channeling The Great Gatsby

Posted on

With the much-anticipated Friday release of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby approaching, we’ve got the roaring 20s’ on our minds. The film has been hugely influential this season when it comes to fashion, beauty and accessories. The Gatsby look is famous for its glamourous, sophisticated style; think flapper dresses embellished with sequins and sparkle for the ladies and dapper suits and hats for the gents. Be sure to check out our top Great Gatsby-inspired picks when dressing for your next night out!

Style Muse: the Year of the Snake

Posted on

 

IT_Blog_snake

With Chinese New Year this weekend, we couldn’t help but take inspiration from the Year of the Snake! Let’s celebrate the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac in style.

Skin is in. Slinky scales in supernatural power colours are winding their way into seductive wardrobes around the globe. Bring the look to your best accessory – your nails – with essie sleek stickers.

The colour of the 2013 Year of the Snake is Black. Black is described in the Zodiac as the colour of Space, Arctic night, darkness on the Abyss, a colour of deep waters and of course, the colour of the dark smoky eye you can create with Stila’s Stay All Day Wet-to-Set Eye Shadow Trio in Thunder Cloud.

For those who prefer a neutral palette, the Year of the Snake is best celebrated with a statement accessory. RW&CO.’s  new shoe collection (coming soon!) has just what you need with a pair of gold-snake print flats.

But let’s be honest, we’re the type to embrace the Snake from head to toe. Helping us out is a matching SYLK blazer and short suit from Mendocino, a bright snake print summer dress from Rachel Rachel Roy and a snake-inspired cardigan from Jones New York!
