I’m not in the least bit original. There are times when I feel bad about myself for having mainstream tastes. I don’t know, even if I’d  be wishing to be very different from everybody and all that, like not carrying a bag, I couldn’t resist the rage that is Balmain.

Voilà, I’m just starting to grow bored with bon-mauvais goût* printed jeans and fringed boots that even my facelift-enhanced-grand-mother-in-law bought… But on the flip side, the military spirit of the little Balmain jackets of the SS09 show is kind of becoming my new obsession.

But  fine. Since I’m also a recessionista, [I loooove the crisis because it allows me to justify a number of incalculable things! “No, I’m not buying Balmain, what with the ongoing crisis… Before, ohohoh, yes, of course, all the time! But now, no, no, no, no, no! C’mon, let’s be reasonable.”] As for my jacket, I think I’m going to look for it elsewhere but rue François 1er.

I’ll follow the likes of Louise and Céline.  I’ll go on a bargain-hunt.

Yes. Now. Because when springtime comes, it’ll be too late.

This is how I find myself forced to plan my fashion decisions.

So, it isn’t me, okay? Blame it on the recession!!!

Oh ! I hadn’t seen that Jane of Sea of Shoes had made a post about military jackets (when I tell you I’m very original) a few days ago ! Thanks Tour D’Ivoire for the link !
