So what do you guys think of the Paris collection so far?  I loved what Raf did for Dior.  Woke up at 5 am to watch the show via my friends on Instagram,  I think Balenciaga looked super fresh.  Very interesting proportions and completely 21st century.  Balmain sort of scared me, but I do love all the belts.  Speaking of belts, how about these belts wrapped around one of our epic shouldered vintage Alaia or YSL jackets to create your take on Olivier Rousteing's take on the big shouldered late 1980s?  These belts are from the decade where I first  found my love of fashion so I hope you can fall in love and get wrapped up in Claude Montana and Jean Claude Jirtois who knew their way around a shoulder pad and certainly around a waist, too. Go for an original and trust me these belts will cost 1/10 of the Balmain ones!  I wish the Jitrois ones were in my size.  The buckle is so super-sized and means business!
