Dear Carmencita: Vintage Market & Nail Art
One thing remains relevant throughout history: the timeless fashion of a little black dress, sometimes seen on John Singer Sargent’s most daring sitters. Tonight, we draw inspiration from the delicate, bold, and intricate fashion seen in Sargent’s work with vintage clothing and modern nail art.
