Pandas, all I’ve been seeing over and over again is the beautiful Balmain for H&M collection. Suffice it to say, it’s been officially imprinted on my brain until it comes out on the 5th of November.
Normally, my weekend photo journal posts have been about colours, eras, and places. They have been generalised because, I tend to lust over many things. What can I say, I’m a woman of many loves. But I decided to make a tiny exception this time round. Reason being, I will finally be able to afford an earring from Balmain and not a tiny bead off one of Olivier Rousteing creations.
Let’s be honest, most of us common folk will never be able to buy a belt from a Balmain Paris collection, let alone a head-to-toe outfit. So when they announced this pairing, it was like listening to a silky smooth verse being laid down to a beautifully hard-hitting hypnotic beat. I think it’s safe to say, it’s put most of us into a trance that won’t be broken until the 5th of November. I for one, will be on my computer clicking away trying to fight the urge not to murder my computer as I stare at the inevitable crashed H&M site because everyone and their cousin’s friends will be on it at the same time! Here’s hoping I get one bracelet or something. I still can’t afford the lavishly detailed-driven beaded jacket that has an intoxicating grip on my soul. It’s said to be £299.99 (roughly $459.40) which is something that I wouldn’t be able to throw money on. Even though I do have a credit card and I could just make one purchase. One tiny, itty-bitty purchase. But, I know me, and if I purchased it, my guilt of buying an extravagant garment would hinder any pleasure I would receive from wearing it. Winning the lottery in the next week would certainly help my situation tremendously. But seeing as I have yet to be lucky in the money department, I won’t be holding my breath.
Either way, there’s something so captivating about each piece. And sometimes, women get distracted by detailed beauty. There’s no harm in that. Granted it should not be the end all or be all. Because as I’ve said, time and time again; There’s so much more to life than materialistic things. However… there’s certainly no harm in lusting and admiring over such creations.
Keep a lookout on the streets if you’re in one of the H&M stores. If I can’t get online then I will definitely be the sad wide-eyed lady frosting up the glass while drooling as I peer inside looking at all the things that I can’t have.
So without further ado, here is the upcoming collection…
