Sharper Shoulders

If, like me, you're enamoured by the concept of the 'sharp shoulder' a la Balmain, then you'll be pleasantly surprised by the less pricey takes on this trend of the season.

First up, the take on the power shoulder by Stolen Girlfriends Club
(p.s. how much do we love their new collection! No idea what I'm talking about? Check it out.
I'll be paying a visit to Subway DC tomorrow to see if the new arrivals are in)

Photobucket
$465.00 AUD

Then, this gorgeous cropped, skinny fit version by An Ode to No One.
(truly a skinny fit and a SHARP shoulder....bonus? the cool bow on the back)

Photobucket
approx $385 AUD

And last but not least, this subtle take on the sharp shoulder by Queen's Wardrobe
(subtle until you add your own shoulder pads to the mix and then we're talking serious business. Perfect for work if you leave out the optional shoulder pads)

Photobucket
$100.30 AUD


So which would you get??

Oh dear, I'm in love with those shoulders!!!!
I know many people that think it's so 80's and that is awful, but I think it's a new conception and I don't care... I have to put my hands on something... even if I'll have to do a DIY.

Hope you're having a nice time, gorgeous.

Mmmh So I personally vote for the last version, its slightly Futuristic/uncluttered "GLAMazon-esque" side (ps: OOooooh YES, maybe I am going to repeat myself BUT this strong shouldered-shapes are MADE FOR you) !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

I am drooling all over this post.

I think the last one is my favourite, classic. I prefer the skin-close shoulder but must admit it is eye-catching.

Btw, if you haven't already watched it, I recommend "Frost/Nixon", deliciously good.

It's all so very Star Trek meets Haute Couture =) I bet you would look, aaaaaa-mazing in one of these creations.

Sorry I've been lagging in commenting, I will try better to keep up. I do read AND appreciate everything though, dear. ;)

Busy busy busy weekend, surprises in store soon enough. In the mean time lots of photo-taking. Yay!

Ohhhh I love the last one...so badass!! I am dying to try this look-we all know about my slight balmain obsession, it's sick really.

I hope you're having a lovely weekend my darrrrrrling! XO

ill do a post with all the things ive been making soon :)
im inclined to the last blazer. I like how the shoulders are bold , high but softly rounded. unique!

Miri said...

I love the shoulder pads! I am quite in love with the last one there. It looks simple and good for everyday wear.

I like some of the 'out-there' crazy designed ones, but I would never wear them anywhere!
