Perfection: Balmain Resort Collection 2013

Hello everyone

One thing you should know by now is that we are BALMAINICS so anything Balmain we will defiantly go gaga over  and some time last year we informed you about Olivier Rousteing taking over the glam-rock chic house and he recently presented the his collection.

Balmain's Collections are always beyond stunning and this specific collection has to be perfection for me.
Its quite obvious that the iconic Parisian house collection had a different inspiration to their usual collection but still remaining with their common elements that we love them for...such as plenty of gold, embellishment,large shoulders and of cause the skinny leg but the excitement comes with Rousteing introducing us to new elements that any fashionista will just die for like the pleated cuffed pants, black and white play, monochromatic looks, splashes of mint, yellow and salmon, leather, diamond shaped prints, strips and the long blazers adding an edge to the looks yet keeping it very spring-fresh and chic

Every detail was influenced by his Miami summery holiday in from the surrounding textures, colors, art deco details & architecture, the styling was indeed impeccable with heavily embroidered detailed and chic metallic heels

I applaud Rousteing for his amazing work so far and for paying so much attention to detail and effortless tailoring. What are your thoughts on this collection?
Enjoy the rest of the day

Crushing on the Celine " Trapeze" Bag

Hey Fashion Lovers

How is everyone doing? Its mid-week and I am extremely exhausted..can Friday come already!!
 I've been dreaming about all things Céline especially my latest obsession The "Trapeze" Bag.
Yes, I am such a bag lady.... cue Erykah Badu and if its one of those hot totes that I can throw my whole life in then its a major bonus.
This Céline's Luggage tote is the edgy answer to the Birkin, then the Trapeze is the Kelly’s more flamboyant counterpart which retails at approximately at $ 3 000 which is R 24 000...I know for sure i will  only being seeing this bag in my dreams. Single-handled with a large flap, it’s more streamlined and elegant than the Luggage, which, while appealing, verges on the cluttered side which is so not typical. It has the foundation of a traditional tote—the classic square-ish shape and simple foldover closure which is good—but clearly, this bag is anything but traditional see for yourself below.

Christmas is around the corner and I know I have been good so putting this on my wish-list would not hurt right?
