It still baffles me at just how much money really circulates out there, and I was reminded today just how exclusive and expensive Balmain really was.
In my fairytale world, I have access to the Balmain collection. I guess unless you are a kpop singer like 2ne1, or a wealthy and successful person, or just fortunate to have a trust fund, this outfit is feasible, but for me, I will just have to admire it from afar.
This is CL from 2ne1, a popular kpop group. They apparently dressed her up in all Balmain and spent just a small price of $183,000...which ended up being more than the production of the actual video...still trying to figure out how they got that to work, since I heard that Balmain doesn't dress celebrities for free. Maybe there's some misinformation there.

I happen to just like the photo in general, but that jacket and top is just killing me today.
I believe the retail of this combo cost somewhere around $15,000, but upon investigation today, it is on sale and you can get it now for around $4500 LOL
Only 4500 lol...I can't believe it cost that much.
A long time ago, I had a bit of a shoe addiction...
anyhoo, My Balmain shoes would go so great with this outfit too....sigh.
Sorry about the poor picture, but it's very punk inspired cross strapped heels by Balmain.
Maybe I can pray that Balmain does a collab with H&M and I can wait in line like all the other lunatics at night to access to the collection ;)
