Bonkers for Balmain: #Paris Fashion Week

I woke up yesterday dreaming and wishing I was in Paris for fashion week!!
NY and Paris are the two big cities I want to be in for Fashion Week. It’s something about these two cities- Paris- sexy laid back and New York Loud and outrageous- two extremes experiencing fashion!!!


But since I can not be in Paris- I whipped out my pics from the winter I was in Paris… and started to reminisce… I’m sooo planning a trip there this summer…

Anywho… back to fashion…
Fashion Week has started in Paris this week, Dior show was today- which I’m excited to see the pics- John Galliano is a fashion genius of out time… Just found out on Twitter Rih Rih was at that show... will have pics of her posted in no time.

I also heard my fav style director is in attendance... Kate Lanphear.

Balmain was yesterday *i was there in spirit*- a favorite of mine this season- since the rising of the exaggerated shoulders worn by all of our fav celebrities; I've been on the prowl.

Christophe Decarnin has been a key influence this season and for next summer he took a step up, moving away from his 80s looks into tarnished military-style.

Check out some of the looks.

I love this collection- makes me think safari- sexy beast- the studs remind me of bullets… military jackets- tight cargo pants and lace up boots!!! FIYAH!!!!
Lace Boots are hot this season too... I've had my eyes on these- Givenchy- is a fantasy- but a Stylista can dream- cant she?

Guess who is in Paris for Fashion Week??? Search.Style.Snap fav walking stylicious mannequin... Rihanna!!!

Decked out in Balmain front row at the show... Harem with Lace top and power shoulder blazer!!!

I love the broach on her lapel. Ladies along with Jewelry- Broaches are key as well. Great way to play with your outwear- like a denim jacket, blazer... all great ways to apply a broach.

Side note: Zara has a black power shoulder blazer in their Fall assortment (Balmain inspired)- I'm trying to hunt one down- if you see one in Zara- I need a size small... hit me on the email!!! :)
Whats shaking this weekend? What do you guys plan on wearing? It's going to rain... but don't let the rain stop your styling!!!
