I’m not your most fashion-savvy person out there so although I will recognise certain names, I can never tell you what sort of clothes they make. So for example, when I saw the beautifully beaded eagle in flight suspended at the base of a plunging back of what is otherwise a very simple, even plain black sheath dress, I could never tell you that it was from the fashion house of Balmain.
But it is. I was terribly fascinated by this one because of the interesting back to the dress. From the front, it is a simple high necked deep navy blue sheath. Turn around, and the back pungles down to the small of your back with that interesting beaded eagle. I’d love to shimmy myself into that dress!
But we’re not here to talk about dresses and Balmain designs. This is about Balmain Ivoire fragrance – a reworking of a Balmain classic scent from 1979. If you can remember that and are reading this, I would like to a) take my hat off to you and b) meet you! 😛
