Balmain Pre-Fall

One of the first labels I ever really got into was Balmain. I was obsessed with their signature embelishments, mini dresses and amazing tailoring. Also, I was pretty astonished at the fact that Olivier Rousteing, who took over for the house in 2011, was only twenty five years old when he succeded Christophe Decarnin. That's a major accomplishment to be able to follow in the footsteps of Pierre Balmain and Oscar De La Renta, at such a young age. As I began discovering more designers and more brands, I kind of put Balmain in the back burner. However, their Pre-Fall 2013 collection brought it all back for me and reminded me why I  fell in love with Balmain in the first place. There's just no way you can't swoon over this.

Gotta Have it!

I was browsing on one of my favorite websites, Etsy, and I saw this awesome transparent clutch which i really really really want now! I just wrote a post about how I need a new clutch and this is the perfect one, I love how unique it is and the gold chain cuff attached to it. I'm still contemplating whether or not I should buy it since it is a little pricey with the shipping, plus, I've been seeing a lot of DIY videos for transparent clutches so maybe i'll try my hands at that...maybe.


The marketing major in me is a sucker for ad campaigns, i'm currently loving Kenzo's spring/summer 2013 one.

A Graphic Study

Like I said, black and white is a major trend that I'm into right now. This spread for Vogue Japan gives a tribute to that, even feauturing some of the pieces that I chose for my Fashion Trend: Black and White post, which made me really excited!!

Keeping it Clutch

Every girl needs a clutch in their life. It's the perfect small bag to carry all your essentials when going out, this way you don't have to worry about carrying around a huge handbag. I myself am in need of a new clutch and I'm loving all these options. New year, new clutch.
