Paris must have rubbed off on me...

Lately, I have been so enamoured with classic French dressing.

Yesterday I took my favourite fashion buddy shopping for the usual trip around the shops in London. We decided to check out just how good the sales are (however we ended up drooling over all of the new merchandise for Fall 2008 Part 1)

Our mate at Balenciaga took out the brand new hand painted one of a kind dress made of latex. The price tag is hefty- 31,000 GBP. That's $62,000! No wonder the store only received one, which no doubt will be snapped up straight away by some Russianista in seven inch stilettos. Perhaps.

Here is a photo of the dress:

The photos do not do this collection justice; I even remember looking at the reviews and photos when they debuted on and shrugging to a less impressive follow-up to Fall 2007 (hard to beat, admittedly!)

The sales were better than we thought- considering at this time of the summer, most merchandise has been picked over by the many 'vultures' wanting a bargain. I ended up with a pair of Balenciaga heels (will fit in for Fall 2008) and Josef caved in and bought a pair of Martin Margiela 'jazz shoes' he had been lusting after for quite some time now.

I agree taking pictures of our purchases may have been a bit silly, but we were excited about our day, and walked away quite inspired
