It’s currently 6:30 am in Mexico and I am preparing a presentation on “Blogging for Bosses.” I’m UP and feeling productive, so figured now was as good a time as any to tell you about my last day in Paris!
I was super blessed to be invited to Balmain’s Fall 2022 show.
When you truly love and frequently patronize a brand, it’s lovely to be able to experience a show! For Fall 2022, Balmain offered a sporty, futuristic collection that featured bodycon dresses, metallic armor inspired vests, and smart jackets. Even gowns exuded an athletic aura: think football jersey inspired bodices paired with voluminous skirts.
Fittingly, Serena Williams sat front row, embodying the perfect balance of athleticism and style. I said hello, and she said she loved reading Fashion Bomb Daily and was proud of all I had accomplished. I almost fainted, but instead I smized.
After the show, I said hi to Precious Lee, who worked the runway in this bodycon dress. I love seeing women with curves on the runway! It makes me feel like maybe I could pull this look off as well. What do you think, should I add to cart once it becomes available?
My dates for the night Stylist Jeremy Haynes, designer Mark by Mark, and I also grabbed a picture with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing. He was humble and elated to have completed yet another amazing show.
Can I tell you I came to Paris with no plan and this is what happened? Leap, and the net will appear!
I leave you with Love & Light,
