YSL Spring/Summer 08
So I just received the spring/summer 08 catalog from YSL and just wanted to share the good and the bad with you. None of the ready-to-wear were really eye-catching since they sort of went for a pj's look this season...very Tilda Swinton at the 08 Oscars :P However, the accessories had some notable items.
First the UGLY:
While the star motif is cute...WTH is up with those SHOES?! I mean..yes, most of us know where our toes are thank you. But for any of you who may have forgotten and need reminding...look no further, YSL to the rescue. And is it just me or did they over do it with the straps?? These are like Super Duper strappy heels! In Christian's words, these shoes are just "God awful ugly" (roll the eyes, flip the hair)!
The FIERCE (say it like you mean it!):
Love this new metallic gold YSL is pushing! While the belt I can do without, everyone and their moms are raving about the metallic crackled gold Majorelle bag. But what really caught my eyes are the flashy pumps! While the crackled gold version is very, um, unique...I'm really all about the shiny metallic bronze. I have these great Giuseppe Zanotti pumps in the same color but those are no where near the sexiness of these YSL pumps. But yes, I should diversify and stop spending money on sky-high YSL pumps...
**NOTE: Sorry my pictures are so crappy but if you want, just ask and I'll show you the actual catalog!**
