HM x Balmain

What should I say... you are probably saturated with these Balmain by H&M looks but I just have to show you these gorgeous velvet patterned trousers. I love them!

To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the collection up until the night before everything was out in stores. Getting up at 5am the next day to stand in a queue knowing that I worked until 12pm, didn't really appeal to me - I was shattered. Plus, did I want to go through the whole craziness and chaos again like last year for the Alexander Wang by H&M collection? It was a tricky decision for me - I thus ended up setting an alarm on 5th of november to ring at 4:30am. You would expect me to get up… well guess what… I stayed in bed and just decided to get my beauty sleep instead of injuring myself and my wallet.
Upon this decision, I chose to go to our local H&M store the following day and still found my luck. I scored these gorgeous velvet trousers.
Today, looking back I am glad I didn't go, because after speaking to some friends and reading the news, people were apparently going crazy and some even came out with scratches on their faces. People turned into animals for this collection.

For this look I paired the velvet trousers with a turtle neck top, a loose blazer and I added my adorable Chanel Boy bag. This season is all about velvet!!
"The more velvet, the better! "
