Things are about to get WEIRD! Or, shall we say creative? Couture is one of my favourite little fantasy worlds to jump into. Since it’s only shown in Paris, I’m going to pretend I’m in one of my favourite places…
I love these shoes. I actually have a pair of pointy-toed black flats that kind of hurt, I wonder if some ankle stabilization would help?
This skirt is really nice. It looks like it’s either a half or three-quarter circle skirt. I’d say there’s probably some sort of lining, then a sparkle layer, and maybe a layer or two of tulle on top to tone down the sparkle?
Not everyone may have time to glue a tonne of sequin’s on a blazer, but I do! For reals though, I think this would be a pretty cool way to take a painting and pixelate it. I mean, the next time I see black blazers on clearance I’m buying them out.
I can’t really tell if these shoes are covered in very tiny rhinestones or just a coat of glitter. Honestly, if I’m going to do sparkle shoes I’d veer towards rhinestones. I need to experiment more, but glitter tends to not have the staying power or replaceability of rhinestones.
Also, I haven’t seen the full video of the show, so I’m going to choose to ignore whatever’s going on to the left.
I’m a sucker for trim. To tone down the very strong matador vibe I’d omit the frog closures.
I love the way this drapes. I’m not sure about it on a blazer, but how pretty of a wrap skirt, or maybe a wrap top, would this be?
I like the idea of a cutout embellished glove with glitter. It’d be all about finding the right applique.
I know this gown is less than practical, but I’m thinking a wrap mini skirt with some sequins and feathers on the side would be super cute. Maybe in a dark grey?
I’m not a fan of exactly how it’s been done, but I like the idea of the pretty flowers popping out from a neckline or sleeve. It’d be something fun to play with.
I’ve always wanted a skirt like this, but I’ve never found one or made one. It might be time… Really all you’d need is a feather trim, and on this one some sparkly things, which is always a big plus.
I think this is really full on, but I like the ribbons at the bottom of the skirt. I also love a good line of bows down the front of anything. The blue and white are also really pretty for summer.
I mean, ankle pearls. I bet I could do this on a flat.
Why do I not own shoes with pearls? You could easily do this with some flat backs and glue.
Now, I know that the embroidered bit is attached to the dress and not the belt, but imagine if it was a belt? You could even do snaps and make an amazing interchangeable applique belt that could go on any plain dress.
Maybe I’m on a weird belt kick and noticing these things, or maybe Elie Saab is just making cute belts, but I love this. I think the hardest bit would be figuring out a closure- I’d be worried about the rock being too heavy for ribbons, but wouldn’t want the clunkiness of a clip. Maybe conceal something behind the stone?
My brother’s a geologist so you’d think I’d know what the rock slices are called, but there ya go. I think they’d hurt on the earring, but the bangle is super cute- and would basically just be glueing a rock to a bangle. I mean, come on. *update, they’re called agates, and you wouldn’t need to find a fake one because real ones are surprisingly affordable. Yay!
The stripes just look like black ribbon and I like the way they contrast with the crinkling of the top. I’m pretty sure I could just do a sort of adapted pattern from a tank that fits me well…
There’s something really cool about this jean skirt. I’m not a fan of the fringe on the bottom, but that’d be easy enough to leave out.
Louis Vuitton did white paint splattered on coats in their men’s Autumn/Winter line. It irritates me a bit because a few years back my Dad was painting the house and apparently paint got on my boots some other way that had nothing to do with him, I don’t know, draw your own conclusions because I certainly did. In any case, there splotches of white paint on my boots. I’m just mad at myself for not having the like, creative intuition to just roll with it and add a tonne more splatters. I think I need to find a great coat on clearance and honour that poor, poor loss.
I’m really into the champagne gold hem on the bottom of this dress. How cute would a glitter hem look on a black circle skirt?
This belt reminds me of the plastering on castle walls. I think it’d look really good in gold and black…
Whoo! Couture week is over and I definitely need to go shopping… apparently at a rock and gems store.
