Personal // Instagram & Snapchat September 2015

I'm a little late with this post; I had a busy couple of days with wedding and parties, but here's my recap of September on Instagram and Snapchat! You can follow me on both by adding me; my username is Krizia_S. I can't wait for Halloween this month. Who's excited as well?


Money VS Budget // Dior VS Zara

It's been a while since the last Money VS Budget post, but when I saw these black patent ankle boots with translucent heel at Zara, they immediately reminded me of the boots starring in the Dior Fall '15 fashion show. I couldn't find any prices on the Dior boots; they weren't mentioned on their website. So I guess it's best to visit a Dior store if you want to go for the real deal. 

For more info about the Dior boots, go to their website or to your nearest Dior store. 
You can shop the Zara boots on their website.

Fashion News // Balmain x H&M Reveal Official Campaign

Sorry for the Balmain x H&M overload, but I'm just dying over this collaboration here. Balmain's Creative Director Olivier Rousteing released the images of the official campaign on his Instagram-account, in which we also can finally catch a glimpse at the men's collection for the first time.

And surprise, surprise (or not): the campaign stars Rousteing's close friends and favorite topmodel squad, also known as Jourdan Dunn, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. The Balmain x H&M men's collection is shown by models Hao Yun Xiang and Dudley O'Shaughnessy. Can we please take a moment to appreciate the striking resemblance between O'Shaughnessy and Rousteing himself? Both have the same bronzed skin, full lips and they sure as hell have one hell of a cheekbone game going on.

On my personal wish list? The emerald green dress, the draped mini skirt, the dress Kendall is wearing in the picture above, the black jacket with white pearls, the black and red fur jacket, the waist belt and the embroidered silver clutch. However, judging by the price tag of Gigi's dress, I have a feeling that this collection will cost a small fortune, so I'm obliged to narrow the list down to an absolute minimum. The drama! The horror! All I can do now is drown in self-pity and wait for the official summary of every single item and its price tag. 

Balmain x H&M will launch on 5 November 2015 in selected stores worldwide and online.

What about you? Thoughts? Wish list?

Shark Attack Loves... // Anecdote

It's hard to accept that fall and winter are coming, but since I'm stuck to the couch with a huge cold, I think it's time to (very) slowly say goodbye to my easy breezy clothes. Finding and wearing winter clothes that I like have always been an issue for me; they make me feel trapped, make me feel claustrophobic and I just really do not like all the brown shades overload once the F/W collections hit the stores.

That's why I was very, very happy to discover Anecdote: a Dutch brand that caught my attention immediately. They're all about clean silhouettes, the perfect balance between the masculine and the feminine, the ultimate basics... Anecdote works with tons of wool and a touch of silk, linen, cotton and denim, so the items are definitely worth the investment. Too bad that I can't find the black booties on their website, because those babies are going onto my wish list as well. Off topic: how insanely gorgeous is their model? It makes me want to dye my hair in a heartbeat.

Anecdote is only available at their store in Amsterdam (perfect excuse for a citytrip) and on their website. I opt for more selling points ASAP!
