Gold, lace, crowns, cat-eyes and crimson lips---can you tell that I was inspired by Dolce and Gabbana's Fall 2013 runway? I never want the beauty of that show to leave my memory. Who doesn't want to feel like a queen for a day? This post is the last part of my Dolce and Gabbana inspired DIY series (previously seen here and here). I took my time making this particular crown, and I'm exceptionally pleased with the result. All of the supplies used to make the crown came from Michaels or Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts stores. The majority of the makeup in these photos came from MAC (lips) and Sephora (eyes). I purchased these royal nail decals last year from Walgreens. I hope you enjoy!
I've been a super fan of Guess ads since I was in high school. The Guess store was my favorite place to shop, and I used to drag my mom there all of the time to buy jeans, jackets and tops. I wanted to be the sultry girls in those monochrome ads and, many years and style changes later, I still do. Lately, two particular campaigns, Guess by Maricano Fall 2010 and Guess Fall 2011 (featuring Amber Heard), have been especially inspirational to me. Knee-length dresses, rolled jeans, heels, cat-eye sunglasses and head scarves are right up my alley.
