Ok, i know i so obsessed with shorts right now because i just bought another pair. This time round, it is from AllSaints. What i like about this are the details but i am not sure about the fit though. As you can see, there are zips on the back pocket and riveted strips on the side pocket. The best thing is that it cost only £15 (shipping cost more), so much cheaper than the €700 Balmain ones. I must admit i have been desperately looking for cargo shorts to get the Balmain look. With the Balmain prices, it's no longer about whether i can afford it or not, it's about making sense of how much is the item actually worth. With the same amount of money, i can get many other things.

I was just browsing through Luisaviaroma to check if the Spring/Summer 2010 items are in and i saw this D&G shirt. The price was reduced from
€149 to €99 and my size was still available so i thought this could be a post Christmas present for myself. I have always like shirts with epaulets. Checked or Plaids shirts are plenty and plain colour shirts are common. Military style is one thing but what i like about epaulets is that it add a sparkle to a plain colour shirt. And most importantly, D&G shirts are cut slim which is rather flattering for me....

While searching for a pair of cargo shorts to get that Balmain look which i previously blogged about, i found this Adidas Originals cargo shorts. I was searching around for this a couple of months back but i couldn't find it anywhere. When i saw that the price was reduced from €110 to €50, i knew i have to get it right away.

Got this from MatchesFashion for £190 and the original price was £298 if i am not wrong. Even though the shipping cost is £30 but it is still a good deal for me. Sad to say, the size is not my usual size. I'm usually a 85 but this is a 95. 10cm might be a big difference but since it is a belt, i can easily make more holes or have it altered at a leathersmith!
I really adore the cargo shorts with boots look. It really suit me in this hot and humid weather, i just can't wear slim or skinny bottoms without perspiring profusely. This is a pair of Balmain cargo shorts from the Spring Summer 2011 collection but who would actually pay €600 for a pair of cargo shorts? Yes, it is biker style with zippers and maybe waxed but it's still EXPENSIVE! I guess i will just look for an alternative brand...
