There Quite Possibly is No Cooler Handbag Line than Horse+Nail

The horse shoe. A metal object designed to protect a horse’s hoof from the trials and tribulations of everyday horse-life, it is also thought to be a good luck charm, bringing prosperity and good fortune to those who possess it. The aesthetically pleasing image decorates homes, skin, clothing, earlobes, etc--prompting nostalgia for the Old West and pride in American culture. Useful, symbolic, and fashionable, its likeness transcends age and time, cementing itself as an everlasting icon and world recognized emblem.

But the vision for the horseshoe that Lindsey Hufnagel has carried out with the creation HORSE+NAIL is one so original and absolute, it begs to be noticed.

Jogger Mania


















What?

In 2014 the term joggers does not refer to those who run at a slow pace, but a casual cinched chino that resembles the pants that a jogger would wear. What was once seen as street style has now taken a sharp turn to the runways and high fashion clothing stores near you.

Who?

When the term “jogger” is mentioned, one name instantly comes to mind, Kayne West. “We brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, ad they said no. How many Mother******s you don’t seen with a leather jogging pant?” said West in an interview when asked about the jogger trend.

Altuzarra for Target Collaboration

The entire fashion world has been eagerly awaiting Target’s next designer collaboration, all with the success of past such collaborations such as that with Peter Pilotto to Prabal Gurung. This time, they are teaming up with Joseph Altuzarra, who launched his line, Altuzarra, in New York in 2008. The line is heavily influenced by his multicultural upbringing and his international education in fashion and the collection for Target features pieces that are very chic, feminine and seductive and Joseph utilized some python prints for the Fall. This doesn’t surprise us here at Joonbug.com; Altuzarra is a widely recognized name and he won the CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund awards back in 2011. The collection varies from skirts, silk blouses, snake skin print dresses, sweaters and even trench coats and also offers various accessories like ankle strap stilettos and knee-high boots. There’s definitely a little bit of everything in this collection. The pieces are casual enough to wear to work, and yet sexy enough to wear out on a date or a night out on the town. If you’re thinking about what the price range is looking like, prices range from $18 to $90.

How to #OOTD Like a Pro

Attention all Instagram addicts: are you ready to get your #OOTD likes up? Here at Joonbug.com we have the answers to perfecting the ever so trendy flat lay. With these four simple steps you will be on the popular page in no time.


Step No.1: Pick a solid background.

White is always a safe bet because it amplifies the color contrasts of your items. But any clear solid background will work. Here’s a tip for getting a white background when you don’t have one- a solid white bed sheet or the inside of wrapping paper. We've also seen wood and grass backgrounds on the popular page. But if you don’t have any of these options readily available, any solid surface will work. Be creative and try something new!
