The 2013 Met Gala Recap

3

Not only did the 2013 Met Gala bring art enthusiasts and fashion designers together, it brought our city together. Each year that the Met Gala takes place the city becomes a bit more vibrant. The punk theme truly brought nostalgia to the city and encouraged everyone to dress the part. We loved how each starlet had fun with their looks and we’re dying to DIY our own punk project.

Chains on the Runway

Many runway shows are very intimidating. There’s a fierce model walking down with a well calculated soundtrack matching each step. We often overlook the details of each piece. While examining some of the recent runway looks, we came across M&J-like trims that resemble the most coveted pieces.

Some of us aren’t able to afford the beautifully chic clothing on the catwalk, but we can definitely use it as inspiration to create our own. Since DIY’s are the thing this year too, why not revamp your t-shirts with lace by adding simple lace accents to clothing or even accessories. Check out this blog for more revamping inspiration!
