Runway Trend: Temporary Tattoos

The most unlikely of trends has popped up on several Fashion Week runways: tattoos. It started at Rodarte, with their futuristic tribal sleeves, half sleeves and neck tattoos.


At Chanel, there were pretty black and white tattoos that looked like jewelry.


There was more of a “prison tat” feel going at Jean Paul Gaultier. The models names were stenciled on various parts of their body.


Could this trend take off? Will temporary tattoos start popping up in stores next Spring? I think it’s an interesting new twist, I’d probably try something like tattoos at Chanel. It’s a very pretty, artistic addition to an outfit. So, was this just a runway trend, or will some of us be slapping on temporary tattoo sleeves in the near future?

Oh Chanel, say it isn’t so!

I bring sad news today. My favorite design house of all time, Chanel–has for the first time in my life, failed me. In recent years, a certain, hideous line of purses have been popping up on soccer moms and that girl from high school who lived in her Sperrys and Clarks. My Aunt has tried to buy me one, we’ve all seen them…..

Vera Bradley purses.

I’m very proud of my own grandmother for not carrying one of these bags. She’s currently toting around a Hayden Harnett for Target bag and that is why I love her, but I digress… 

I just dislike the sewing circle-esque patterns and the overall construction of the bags. 

Not ten minutes ago I discovered something that will probably forever haunt the fashion obsessed side of my brain.
