SFFW14 Day 4: Vintage Vibes

Thursday, September 25, 2014

For Day 4 of San Francisco Fashion Week (which fell on a Thursday) I really wanted to pay homage to a Vintage "Throwback Thursday" in the fashion realm. I'm a huge Balmain fan (I mean who isn't?!), so when I found this gorgeous beaded bodycon dress in my mothers closet from the 80's, it looked and represented what Balmain, Emilio Pucci, and even D&G were showcasing on the Fall runway during Paris & Milan's fashion week - It would only be super appropriate to demonstrate my love of the old with the new ;-) I didn't want to take too much away (or add too much to the already gaudy) dress, so I added a very Versace-ish lion-head ring, simple gold Jimmy Choo clutch, and classic 80's white pointy pumps to finish off my fierce ensemble!
