WHAT: Balmain zip bootie
WHY: You have to admit: you're a bit tired of Balmainia. Another seqined, body-con rocker chick dress on a model-type strutting the red carpet may even make you yearn for the days of the trapeze dress (ok, maybe that's a bit too far). Why not keep 'em guessing by echewing the look du moment (by which we mean give your dangerously sharp-shouldered military jacket a rest) in favor of a more unexpected Balmain offering, like these zipped up ankle booties? Die-hard chicsters might not even recognize them as Balmain--which makes them all the more alluring, n'est-ce pas?
