Balmain F/W 2009

These are some of my favorite looks from the Balmain F/W 2009 show, I really loved the skinny black pants, heels with bows, strong shoulders, and silver dresses. My favorite look out of these is the first one, I really like stripes. Also, the quilted leather skirt is amazing! I got these pictures from style.com, where you can view the entire collection.

I went to the mall the other day, and got these two pictures from Nordstoms. The first one is a group of looks from Stella McCartney and the second one are two looks from Donna Karen, I especially like the red skirt. I also decided to try a new thing for me. I bought yellow eyeshadow. I have seen it a couple times in various runway shows and decided I wanted to try it. I purchased Chrome Yellow by MAC, you can purchase this eyeshadow here. I feel like yellow is a hard color to wear because it can almost make you look sick. I find that wearing it only on the lids with the rest of the face plain, created a focus on the color and didn't make me appear like I was a clown. But, you also do not have to choose a bright yellow like I did, softer yellows or just applying a bright yellow sparingly or mixed with a lighter shadow can make this look more wearable for everyday.

Dior F/W 2009

Picture Board

I took a bunch of magazines and clipped out some pictures I found interesting. Then, using a cork square as a base, I layed out all my clippings in a collage. I secured them by stapling everything down. The large flats in the collage are Kate Spade, the jacked the model is wearing and the green leopard one are both Dior. The man holding the tennis raquet is tennis star Rene Lacoste and the gray dress is D&G. The rest of the pictures are randoms, I picked some for the colors in them or just because I liked them.
