Yes it’s true, it’s me again, JustToni! …. No shade, but I am not much of an H&M shopper, okay, I’m not an H&M shopper period, … but they really got my attention with this Balmain collection, or at least part of it!
JUST OFF THE PRESS! … On Tuesday night, H&M hosted the penultimate performance in its Balmain collaboration tour: a red carpet event with a runway show at 23 Wall Street. And just as I suspected, according to the fashionista.com report by Lauren Indivk, There was a discernible difference in quality from the Balmain clothes. More zippers buckled than not; jackets weren’t neatly tailored; large dangly earrings and a satin-y material used on pants and skirts looked conspicuously cheap. But the more expensive in the collection, … the glittering and reflective dresses looked good, and they sold a compelling vision of womanly power and glamour.
I guess we will just have to wait and see for ourselves!
Oh how I love the fall! What I love most of all, aside from the crisp bright mornings, the amazing colorful foliage and of course, being the season of giving and family, … it is the perfect weather for dressing! It’s not too hot, not too cold, but just the right temperature for great street style! Transitioning from summer to fall can be lot’s of fun, and allows you to test your creative juices. It is the time to truly play around with your existing wardrobe, by lending a touch of sporty elegance with the help of a faux-fur vest, a stylish poncho over a great pair of jeans, or a cropped denim jacket with your favorite maxi skirt creating a great boho look, … one of my favorite looks by the way! So let’s “Fall” in-love with autumn and start your transition!
