Good Morning Everyone and welcome to Monday. It's incredibly cold here in Chicago. I feel like we're living a real life version of the movie Ground Hog Day. If you've never seen the movie, it's about a guy who wakes up everyday to find that it is once again Ground Hog Day. He can't escape it!! Well, it's officially the never ending Ground Hog Day here in Chicago. Each day we wake up to sub zero temperatures and more snow. So a Spring/Summer collection is right up my alley this morning!!
I received an email about a pin that I had posted on Pinterest being repinned. Typically, I just delete the email, but I took a look and a bag on that person's board caught my eye so I decided to take a look. There I saw a pin from the Balmain Spring/Summer collection and I HAD to see more. The collection is very 80's inspired. Remember when we wore lots and lots of what they now call bling? Well, this is rather over the top, but there are design details that I think are especially nice. I have posted my favorites, but if you would like to take a look at more of the collection, here's a link,
When I saw this top, I was in love. I absolutely love everything about this top and would love to make one.
The back pockets on the skirt. Very unexpected, but so cute.
Couture baseball fun!
Another oversized baseball jacket paired with matching skirt. Love the idea of a sweatshirt being turned into a skirt.
I've included a video of the fashion show. Watching the clothes move is quite a treat. It's a little less than 10 minutes long, and well worth the time spent.
If you've saved all your big, bold, gold jewelry from the 80's, well, it looks like you're in luck. Actually, just a touch goes a long way ;)
Have a lovely week.
