Mustang Style with @Ford

Leaura and I are always checking out fun ways to incorporate Ford Style into our everyday lives and last week we learned now!  With the amazing team at Ford who is always coming up with interesting ideas and collaborations, we were able to experience the styling by Christos Garkinos with all his vintage finds.  We also got signature Mustang x OPI manis to complete the look!

  • Summer ‘Stang – To spotlight summer road-trip style, Christos Garkinos, globally recognized celebrity stylist and co-owner of the renowned Decades vintage boutique, can provide style tips and examples on how to get the perfect vintage look this summer.
  • Mustang Mani – OPI and Ford Motor Company have gone full throttle, taking the “pedi to the metal” with the official launch of the limited-edition nail lacquer collection inspired by the popular Ford Mustang. The OPI Ford Mustang collection features six Mustang-inspired shades that are set to hit U.S. stores in July.
  • Old School –  From the 2014 Ford Trends Book, we know that old has become new again (just look at Mustang and The Blind Barber!), as consumers find comfort and connection in products, brands and experiences that evoke a romantic nostalgia.
  • Get Lucky – Nothing says “Made in America” like Ford Mustang and Lucky, and the two have teamed up to release an exclusive line of T-shirts, which will be available this Summer.

Thanks for inviting us!
