changing room hijack

Tried on some Balenciaga at this random little store that sells past season stock.
The embroidery on the white shift was bat-shit crazy. I took a gander at the retail price and it was like 1995 euros, which honestly seems like Mervyn's pricing compared to the "new" standards we've been bombarded with lately. It was reduced down to 450. Even if I would've had the cash I wouldnt've got it because it barely covered my ass and I'm so not into that.

(blurred my face because the bad lighting cast some unsightly shadows on my mug)

tried on some ss08 floral junk but there is no way to get around that print. The shortsleeve top (230euro) in the pic above looked amazing on me, the shoulders were cut in the stiff scuba fabric so it gave a great silhouette. I wish he had chosen leopard or giraffe print instead.

ss07 dress (350)
Pardon the painfully blurry pic, but I had to hurry up and take the picture before the overbearing SA could barge back into the changing rooms with more shit to try on.

also tried on this Dior shortsleeve jacket (300 euro) in black. It was GORGEOUS and fit me like a glove. I started hotflashing right then and there.

here's what I wore

H&M cardigan
Bernhard Willhelm skirt
Chloe wedges
Giv Pumpkin

I totally agree - the floral you tried on was not one of the best that season and even the gorgeous ones looks dreadfully hard to pull off. It just made more sense for the dresses because then all you have to think about is accessorizing. That Chloe top (dress?) reminded me of one of Chanel's couture collections - maybe it was F/W 06. The season with all the denim boots. Loved it.
