Outfits Inspired by Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013

Rebecca Minkoff, known for her playful designs, debuted her  Spring 2013 collection with... The collection, inspired by American photographer Slim Aarons, was full of 60's and 70's inspired floral prints. Minkoff's collection of ready-to-wear separates incorporating recent trends such as ombre and sporty accents, perfectly captures an updated look of 60s jet-setters. 

I was able to draw inspiration from the line and come up with three similar outfits on a budget and (an attempt at) Rebecca Minkoff inspired nail art. 

The Clothes

This look is the most casual of the three but definitely not the most understated. The simplicity of the distressed jeans are surrounded by an eye-catching floral print and I pop of bright orange.

The second look mixes casual with glam and makes it look so comfortable too! The jacket adds a sporty vibe to the look but the body-con skirt and heels make it flirty and fun.

For a more 70's vibe, the third look pairs a front tie shirt and light-wash denim.

The Nails

My inspiration for the nails came from the different prints used in Minkoff's collection. For this look I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish in "White On", Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in "Blue Me Away", and OPI Red Crackle Nail Polish.

The print on the thumb came from the blue and white jacket and pants (See post header image). I did it by first using "White On" and using  the round end of a sewing pin to create the stripes "Blue Me Away".

To create the other two prints, I used "White Out" as the base color again. Inspired by the different red floral prints in the collection, (see post header image) I used OPI Red Crackle Nail Polish. I love the way it looks and after looking at it for a while it started to remind me of Lady Gaga's infamous meat dress.

The design on the middle fingers were inspired by the strings on the blue sporty jacket in look two. I started with "Blue Me Away" and then drew connecting diagonal lines using "White Out" and a pin.
