My beautiful wedding shoes.
A whole year without blogging! 2013 was a whirlwind of a year; I got married, moved into a new house and have been travelling! But hopefully 2014 will be more productive for me re bloggin!
Every year I’m super excited to see what department stores such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Harrods & ect have to offer as festive window displays (sad I know). This year the Harrods window display stole my heart and my eager anticipation had not gone to waste. It had Elie Saab and Disney!! I mean what more can a girl ask for!!
Harrods had enlisted fashions elite (big names such as Elie Saab, Valentino, & Versace) to recreate a selection of Disney princesses.
As a young child I loved Disney and still do. My favourite Disney movie being Beauty and the Beast (Belle my favourite Disney princess), Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin and more recently Tangled, however I was saddened to discover that my favourite designer (Elie Saab) had not been enlisted to recreate my favourite Disney princess and adorn her in one of his exquisite haute couture gowns. Nevertheless Aurora looked beautiful in the salmon pink Elie Saab gown that was heavily beaded.
Below I have posted a few photographs of Aurora in Elie Saab! ♥
So I know it’s been a while since the Balmain RTW ’13 collection debuted at PFW but I was absent during that time in the world of bloggin’. LOL! So I shall blog my thoughts about it now.
I love Balmain and the fashion house continued to impress me with there ever stronger pieces. Olivier Rousteing; the designer is said to have been inspired by Cuba and the 1990’s singer Sade and this is very much reflected in the collection.
Olivier Rousteing once again showcased his talents when it comes to embellishments. The pieces in the collection were the reflection of a true craftsman hard at work. The collection also saw Rousteing experimenting with volume and exaggerated silhouette. The highlight of the collection for me was the use of heavy beading, thick lace and the large hoops that the models were fashioning.
Below I have posted my favourite looks and details.
The details on the dress below I just LOVE!! I need this.
