So, Marie Antoinette Walks In To A Bar…

8 Jun

… dripping with ever-so-intricate jewels… or, wait, are those…. nooo…  God save the Queen!

I was  reminded of my original sighting of couture’s recent foray into mixing street culture with fashion proper by both Miss Défilé’s latest Coco post, and by my friend Key’s beautiful body of adornment (and, admittedly blatant mention of this).

Trompe L'Oeil

Tattoo You

Leave it to the messiah of all that is classy and classic in this divine world to bring us- temporary tattoos? !?  Yes.

This also proves the old addage that you can slap a brand on to just about anything these days- your skin included.  Les Trompe-L’Oeil de Chanel “Temporary Skin Art” is available directly through Chanel’s site for a semi-steep $75– a bit much for something that’s just going to come off in the shower.  But, ’tis a small price to pay to gratuitously display your love for Chanel, and possibly gain a little street cred while you’re at it.  And, I must say, the designs are quite pretty- quite fit for royalty.

The Girl with the Pearl, Bracelet.... Tattoo

Leave the Cracker-Jack sifting to the kids, ladies and opt for something a bit more opulent-  a bit more bad-ass.  ♥
