My lucky find: Balmain for H&M booties


Back in the Fall I was lucky enough to get an exclusive invite to shop the Balmain for H & M pre-sale at one of the NYC stores. I made it a point to check out the collection. Incredibly, as much stock as they had, so many other editors and stylist were invited which left a limited selection. I am not one to scour stores or do much digging.


I made my way around the store and found two dresses, a few tops, a jacket, and a shoe box with my size on it. I peeked inside and saw these absolutely incredible booties. I didn’t hesitate to try them on, and just like Cinderella, they fit! I took my selections to the counter and checked out. My total was a (bit) more than I had planned, but it was completely worth it. These sparkly booties are everything.
