SHOPPING : Balmain Tribute
It looks like I'm on a inspirational day !
lol no, I have loads to catch up so.. hear me ramble for a moment today !
Last week, we had to wave goodbye to the Balmain Tribute store. What can I say.. When I started to get interested in fashion, buying shyly Vogue magazine at the newspaper kiosk, I fell in love with Balmain. That punkish-baroque vibe, that gold everywhere, that studs and those shoulder pads ! such good memories - yep, I should get a life.
But still, I miss this Decarnin era.
So, that Tribute store kinda unsettled me. This is more of a eighty-something vibe ; but I don't know really. The items are well made, the pieces are interesting, but I haven't felt like getting Balmain.. Or maybe it's just me, I'm old and senile !
Here's what I picked :
There are a couple of pieces that I loved - although not-so-Balmain for me. I think that this lace shirt is going to be a must have, and those plain red jacket and bra, perfect.
I made a quick outfit with it :
I shouldn't sound that disappointed,
those items are actually nice to use,
and are making some good basics !
OK, I couldn't resist.
glad I could share my Balmain memories with you,
