Balmain‘s Pre-Fall 2019 or David Koma‘s F/W 2019 collection are both boasting the animalistic trend with beaded ornates that curve from the hip up towards a single padded shoulder. Dragons or serpents, both are stunning examples of an opulent yet unfussy approach to design. Wear them with smoky eyes and your hair pinned into a bun to highlight the shoulder cutout or opt for the skirt with a turtleneck during the day.

Match Your iPhone Case to Your Nails


Personally speaking, I might reach for my mobile phone more often during the day than I reach for a glass of water. So I literally died when I came across those iPhone cases that look identical to a bottle of Chanel nail polish. Available in the season’s new shades from the Collection Printemps Précieux de Chanel, Empire, Fracas and Accessoire, as well as long-time classics such as Dragon and Blue Satin – it’s even coated with a crystal clear enamel layer, made by Hong Kong-based Etsy vendor The Custom Art.

Ladies, it is time to outfit your iPhone with seasonal trends in mind.

LoL, Sandra
