remodel; everything has been done.

balenciaga's quirkier collections, like those of prada, are usually ones that aren't instantaneously wonderful, celebrated, and favoured. i grew to adore and covet those sky-high buckled boots from AW06, the jodhpurs from AW07, and the exagerratedly chunky strappy sandals from SS07. but this collection, as bizarre and zany as it may seem, struck my acceptance nerve. i liked it, i honestly did. the ingenious juxtaposition of the flowers on the constricting silhouettes amused me.

what about you?

I didn't like it. But, I know most people did.

Let me first say that I love your blog. I've been checking out some of the previous posts and I've enjoyed reading every single one of them.
I agree with you on the Balenciaga SS08 show - it was great. I don't know how wearable it is for everyday life, but I like it either way.

I was wondering if we'd exchange links? :) I'm gonna link you right away so I won't forget.

I like the shoes, but not the dresses.
