Do you have that one runway look that you refer back to every now and then when you're bored or feeling uninspired? Ever daydreamed about that look you have etched in the back of your mind, knowing that even though it is ridiculously expensive and will be at least a ten years' wait until you own it, there is no way you envision yourself being eighty, looking back at your fabulous wardrobe, and not seeing it amongst the pack? No, just me. Keeewl.

Today, we're going back in the archives-kinda. I don't think there has been a designer piece since fall 2012 that has stayed with me as much as this one above. Ask my friends (like you could, but if you could..), they'd admit to having seen it pulled up on my dash at least one or five times. I'm not quite sure if it's the elegance and sheer genius-ness of the piece, or if it's because since my first viewing of this suit, I immediately blurted out, "This is what I am wearing to my wedding party- yes, it is going to be a wedding party. Either way, this is a phenomenal piece nested in a phenomenal collection. In case you think I'm exaggerating, I decided to dedicate a post to the collection that stole my heart. You ready?

Folks, I give you, Oliver Rousteing's of Balmain's fall 2012 RTW collection:

Every now and then I have these super cliché moments in fashion and I cry a little inside that I don't own Dorothy slippers and could plant myself in the Balmain studios...or plant the Balmain studios in my closet. I mean, the ability to have a viewer imagine themselves in and want to be in every. single. look in a collection...the power. That's it. I'm gonna marry Rousteing. That would definitely solidify me owning that suit right?

I had the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week recently. If you know me or this blog, it's been a very long time coming. Ok, maybe like three years but still it was a plesant surprise to receive my first real invite to a NYFW show, this side of the continent***. I felt truly special, as NYFW  seems to set out to make one feel, with the stark scent of exclusivity. But I also knew almost immediately, I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by. It was practically divine. On the very same day I looked up the dates for this past season's show, was the very same day I ranted about the state of NYFW, and the very same day Yuna Yang sent me an invite. Something much larger than I was at work, so I took heed and followed through with the prompting (Thank you sweet baby Jesus). Yuna Yang

Entering from the End || On ALL NIGHT of LEMONADE by B

I am listening to “All Night” and I am in tears. I am crying from the inside-out. There is no flood, just pain (and healing *rolling eye emoji).


And yes that word counts as a B reference so let's just start there.
