Glasses Awe

I tried on those glasses the other day. I am currently in Paris and I did my normal trip to Galeries Lafayette and Printemps to gaze at the designers. It's sad to say that I had never seen Maison Martin Margiela's clothes in person before. I really don't understand why the giant department shop in Dublin,Brown Thomas, isn't better stocked. It has the major designers like Prada and Dolce and Gabanna but it's a very small selection. That said the last time I was there they had ONE Balenciga dress and an actual rail of Philip Lim which is a welcome improvement. C'mon the dublin of today is not like the dublin of the 80s. Not like I was around to see it,but i'm told it wasn't the nicest! We should be aspiring to be like all the other big european capitals. We just need to embrace a little culture.

Anyway this was not supposed to be a rant on the state of Dublin, this was supposed to be talking about Printemps and Galeries Lafayette! I started off in Galeries Lafayette as it is the more renowned of the two. It was okay. They had a big Comme Des Garcons rack which was nice and it was listed that they had Louis Goldin, which I was surprised at, but it turned out that she was nowhere to be seen. But the designers I liked were smatterings between more low end ones like Diesel and Guess.Not to say these are bad brands, its just I go to department stores to look at designers in person,not to actually buy anything. Even though I was enamoured by Max Mara socks... I then moved on to Printemps which I thought was alot better. It had a large Burberry and Balenciagca section and I was in actual awe in the Maison Martin Margiela section. It was so great touching the clothes that I reconized from the show and putting the glasses on felt amazing!I also saw real Herve Leger bandage dresses! It was pretty embarrassing the daze I was in when walking around the shop, touching all the clothes. I think I'd probably have a heart attack if I ever went to a show because I would be so amazed!

For some reason my blog layout has been all messed up with my Brace Face post...If anyone has any ideas on how to fix it,help would be appreciated!


Is it just me or does the Christian Dior Couture show remind you of Disney Princesses?

The 5 year old in me likes it.
