One of my most inspiring fashion muses! Can’t wait to snatch up what is bound to be an amazing read!
Barefoot Blonde in Balmain
The third and final collaboration with online luxury website, LUISVIAROMA, just happens to be my favourite! I’m physically drooling as I type this post over the immaculate detailing of this leather mini dress by Balmain. The blogger claimed it fit like a glove and certainly looks oh so flattering on her flawless frame. It almost overshadows the equally unreal SL accessories, almost. Unfortunately, the necklace by Aurelie Bidermann is basically impossible to see, luckily there’s enough eye candy in the shot that it doesn’t really take away from anything!

Another LUISVIAROMA and Barefoot Blonde Collaboration
These shots are major! I can’t get over the detail and design incorporated into each piece of this shoot. The Erickson Beamon body jewel is the real pièce de résistance for me, and although I can’t afford to buy the exact item, it does look like something that could be replicated!

Lanvin in Florence
Loving the photos captured by Barefoot Blonde blogger in her collaboration with LUISAVIAROMA, an online luxury shop. The backdrop in Florence is so breathtaking, it almost looks like a painting.

In lust with the last look modelled impeccably by Daisy, the sweater and boots are just unreal!
Balmain Spring 2014 RTW, an excerpt from Style.com:
Overalls at Balmain? Two years ago, when Olivier Rousteing stepped into his creative director role, it was bling, baby, bling. But after a Fall show that often landed on the wrong side of audacious, Rousteing is reconsidering the house’s signature intense beading. “I wanted to explore something casual and sporty,” he shared backstage. “It’s less evening and more real. It’s more me.”
Cue Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Relax” on the soundtrack and the first look out—a cardigan, of all things, belted over a ruffled skirt that fell all the way to the knees. True, it was black leather, but a skirt that grazes the models’ knees qualifies as headline news at Balmain. And there was more where that came from, including quilted bombers, sweatshirts, and baseball tees.
We’re not saying that Rousteing gave up entirely on glitz. Not at all. The silhouettes were more relaxed than usual, but there was still plenty happening on the surface of things. For Spring, he likes pied-de-poule in black and white and Vichy prints in baby blue or pink, accented with necklaces and wrestler’s belts. Denim got the deluxe treatment, quilted and trimmed in chunky gold chain, or reproduced in a silk print. Crystals came in at the end, but because they’re so familiar at Balmain, they felt predictable. Best in show was a pair of those overalls fitted all the way up above the bust in glossy black leather.
