Woo Hoo for Fashion!

I have never been one for over-the-top fashion looks. I have never even remotely liked clothing that brings to mind the Victorian era. Certain prints and fits just make me squeamish. Blech!

But the very moment that I laid eyes on pieces from the Fall/Winter 2010 Collection from Balmain, I felt my heart go pitter patter. These looks, I totally go for.

The top one is my favorite look of the collection. There is so much shine, deep colors and perfect fits. I mean, seriously, when was the last time you saw brocade look that good? Never, right? Somehow, Balmain has taken prints and fabrics that have historically looked "stuffy" and "gilded" and given them the perfect mix of femme and edge.
I'm sure that this is one of those love it or hate it collections. I, for one, absolutely love it. (And you must check out the dresses. Wow.)
What do you think? Would you wear this look?
You can check out the entire collection on the Balmain website.

I think you are a glam rock star in another life, have you looked into this? Very shinny and sparkly and yummy.

I would!

Though my bf would surely make fun of me, saying, "Sarah, you're not on a runway!"... because I love to take my time and dress up... fantastic collection -- thank you for sharing this :)
