Ok, I take it back. Don't do this. It's shit and a waste of time.
Balmain was definitely my favourite show from Paris Fashion week. It had so many things I love at the moment - drummer boy jackets, electric coloured dresses, studs everywhere, sequins, ripped jeans, flowing dresses. I also loved how wearable the collection was - oh if only I could afford Balmain!
One show that captured my attention particularly was the Balenciaga show. I loved how the mixture of textures and colours played with the light, giving off a futuristic, sci-fi vibe. However, for me this collection was more of what we've seen before like the whole futuristic trend in the 90s at the excitement of the milenium.
Here's some pictures of my trip...
Oooh I nearly forgot...the goody bag! It wasn't as good as I was expecting, I think I was expecting the same type of stuff as the fashion week bags haha. It had this random wrinkle cream stuff, some tony and guy hair cream, a cute little box of...sanitary towels ha, a little pink diary, a big galaxy (not shown in the picture because I've devoured it, of course), a tester of some san tropez and elizabeth arden stuff. The bag was cute though! And here's a picture of my juicy couture blouse.

WOW WOW WOW AGAIN!
This issue looks amazing, I haven't had a good read of it yet but I shall have a thorough look tonight and post my findings tomorrow :D
Also, (random thoughts while watching the hills) does anyone else think its rather funny how they're playing a song called "bad girl" in the background when Stephanie goes on a date with doug behind lauren's back in season 4 episode 7? Ha.

This is actually a lace skirt, but it's a weird length so I thought I'd try it as a top, and it worked! I think it looks cute with the flower in my hair.
This is a gym class heroes t-shirt i got from their gig, they have such awesome graphics, I think this looks really funky with the tights and jacket.

She's funky, she's fresh, she's KESH! Kesh is a 21 year old British Designer/DJ. She started out with designing T-shirts and she was discovered after meeting Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco and handing out samples of her T-shirts. She's recently held her first fashion show. It's impossible to describe her style, it's just so crazy! Acidic colours, Gold blinggg, nu rave, indie, funk, disco, electronic are some words that come to mind.She's a complete cheapskate - and that's why I love her! In all her interviews she's like "oh yea, this was £1." Nearly everything she wears is customized or made by herself, I saw an awesome video in which she made a dress in 30 minutes for an interview, and it was gorgeous! She just makes it all look so easy. Type "kesh 20 minute dress" into google.
She also DJs in her spare time and at the moment she's travelling all around the world for her DJ-ing. Here's an interview with her, she seems so nice and down to earth!
