*Balmain Fall 2010*
I know it's not Fall yet, but I can't help myself from perusing through the Fall collections in hopes of the months to come. It started with my excitement over the Artic women in Chanel's collection (blogged HERE) and now I'm really swooning over Balmain's collection full of metallics, exuberant detailing (I adore the brocade and beautiful prints on these jackets...reminds me of the Christian Weber blazer I adore so much worn HERE) and of course I'm a HUGE lover of all things blazers and jackets so I was spellbound by the gorgeous coats in this collection!
Designer Christophe Decarnin definitely went "Baroque 'n' roll" this season and I'm head over heels about it. I adore the strong shoulders in this collection and it reminds me that I have a couple of 80's blouses from my mom with sharp shoulders that I'm itching to throw into my Fall rotation (I'm so sentimental about everything from my mom and it feels wonderful to be able to wear a little piece of her with me).
There are a couple months to go before it actually gets chilly at all here in So Cal, but I just can't help myself I have Fall Fever. :)
Any Fall items your craving?
p.s. Oh! And of course I love the long-sleeved mini dresses for Fall! That is a great happy medium for us So. Cal girls. :) I obviously cannot afford Balmain, but I may have to attempt a DIY of these mini dresses. Now of course this means I need a place/occasion to wear it this Winter. Any suggestions?
