Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion*

Dad is out. Mum is playing bridge. I’m looking after this person in the freezing house:

Am drinking coffee out of my Solitaire mug:

Someone orange and fluffy has been inside a lot today. Here he is sitting on my chair:

Work hard at Spin. Here is graph:

Then wash my hair despite the sub-Zero conditions.

Yesterday a kind receptionist at the gym puts all my earrings back in. Show you:

Some of them were taken out for a Scan years ago so am happy to have them all back in.

Yesterday at the museum we see the Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion exhibition. We see this:

An American called Elizabeth Parke Firestone had a different pair of shoes to match each of her Balenciaga couture dresses, see above.

On the second floor there are clothes by designers inspired by Balenciaga. I would like this Oscar de la Renta 2015 dress:

It’s just So Me. Can wear it with Fit Flops, probably, and jazz it up with all my different bolero cardigans.

There is this snake dress by Iris van Herpen, which is not for every day but certainly makes an impact. Mustn’t let the fluffy monster claw or bite it:

And this beaded, sequinned feathered one by Yves Saint Laurent:

And this feathered evening dress by Hubert de Givenchy, worn by Gloria Guinness in 1961:

“There’s rather too many feathers and sequins for my liking,” Mum says. However, I love feathers and sequins.

Here, Josep Pont suggests feathers by using sequins:

This is for Delpozo. The founder of Delpozo, Jesus del Pozo, was awarded the Cristobal Balenciaga award for best Spanish designer in 1989.

Right, had better eat my orange, drink my lemon squash and find Rear Window so can watch it with Mum when she gets home.

Mum is here! Fluffy monster is on the piano stool.

The attached photo is today’s Spin outfit.

Happy Thursday everyone!
