Balmain x H&M

I don’t post much about fashion coz I apparently have a very delayed sense of style.  I don’t follow trends at all and dress more for my shape – small waist, big hips – than anything else.  When I was less confident in my body, I just dressed in fairly baggy clothes as I was afraid that I was one tight pencil skirt away from looking like the naughty librarian.  But now I kinda relish it.  Maybe it because I’m getting older and gaining confidence in what I look like and really don’t care for others opinions!  Watch out – tits and arse coming your way.  I know I did a post on how I couldn’t figure out what my style is, but maybe that’s it – sexy librarian, lol.

Anyway, I write all of this to introduce you to my picks from the Balmain x H&M collection coming on November 5th.  I’ll be up all night November 4th to try get some items online.  Then I might have to feign illness and braves the hoards at my local stores.  I like Balmain when his clothes are sexy, over the top and still elegant.  Totally look at me fashion, but in a classy way – which the Neo in my head loves to wear once a month when I try to act 21. What I like about the collection is that it fits in with the general Balmain aesthetic and doesn’t look like a cheap imitation/knock-off.  I wonder what the actual detailing and finishing will look like, I hope it’s worth the price point.  But still, Balmain-ish for less than $1000, I’ll take it.  To be honest, I had a few other picks but I thought they were too expensive.

Planning on setting up a “gofund” me account to afford everything – feel free to donate!  Photos from the lovely fashionista.

  1. I love that black top, too! I was thinking about trying to buy something online but I saw the prices and I decided that I won’t spend to buy something from this collection, which is too pricey, I set my eyes on the biker jacket but it cost 299 euros! These collaborations are becoming more expensive, season after season.

    1. I totally agree with you, I thought some of the prices were a bit much for H&M, there are a few other items that I like but were out of my comfort zone. However, I wasn’t at all surprised based on the fact that I once saw a real Balmain TSHIRT – yes tshirt made out of cotton – for $600, and jeans in the $2000 range. But I think its perspective, if The regular line dresses sell for 4-5figures, then hundreds here seem reasonable. I think they don’t want to cheapen the brand too much. which unfortunately makes it still very pricey.

  2. I like that last top. It’s the type of statement piece that could work with jeans, dressy pants or a skirt. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. I’m not even going to kid myself into thinking I’ll remember to get up that early 🙂

    1. I think I will need the luck! Only one store in my city will get the collection, and what with the kiddie school drop off situation, theres no way I can do the whole line-up for hours thing. Will have to get up and try my luck online!!
