Balenciaga and Lola

These super short dresses from Balenciaga are so freakin nice! And I bet so expensive too - even if each piece wouldn't need more than 2 yards of fabric! Darn it!

I'm liking the 'scarf as headwrap' by the way!

Which reminds me, forget the Prada-ish turbans. Better start stocking up on scarves! "Dalagang Bukid" style scarves and granny style babushkas and are fast becoming a fashion HOT instead of a NOT!

As seen at Rachel Roy Resort 2008...

...and Blumarine Fall 2008

My Lola Imas used to wrap her head with a silk scarf, knotted under the chin just like the above photo. Always with big dark sunglasses whenever we go on long drives to the province. I always thought it looked funny, but I guess this was a statement during their time! Now its back! Just goes to show the 20 year rule in fashion really is taken seriously huh!
