balmain please

pretty please, with a cherry on top? i'd like to thank youtube for showing me the fashion paradise that is the online video collection of the balmain 2013 runway shows. i'm kind of obsessed with the spring/summer RTW show AND the Resort 2013 collection, which is featured here. it's traditional by means of being just so signature balmain but new by means of being so innovative. they always stay true to the balmain girl but add the extra intrigue and twist. i love it! (i don't care! i love it!.... now you have that song in your head, right? the epitome of catchy) enjoy your weekend xoxo, mary

tropical cowgirl

Americana’s south west tradition from the eyes of French-to-the-core Isabel Marant surfaces as a tropical, kitschy spring/summer 2013 collection. YEEE-HAW! Rodeo style studding in Aztec shapes, embellished belts, cutout shapes, and structured denim meets Hawaiian style prints that are so very chic.  A dichotomy I can appreciate. I say yes to dressing as a tropical cowgirl. Thoughts?
