Please Help Me!! Balenciaga Jumpsuit.
Ok. I have had dreams about this jumpsuit, I want ONE sooo bad.

Does anyone have any info at all to give on them?

Like the RRP, or about?

Waitinglists?

is it possible to order from it France? since there is no Balenciaga shop in London

Has anyone seem people wearing them/ is it to much for an "everyday" item?

Anything at all...

Thank you, guys

This is the perfect look for the jumpsuit, not a fitted as on the model but, a bit more slouchy.

Now, that is...

Perfection.

I called Selfridges today, they had neither the Nautical jacket I wanted or the Jumpsuit in.

When I heard what the Nautical jacket costed I nearly fell of my chair

2000...

wow.

i think your best bet for that jumpsuit is a balenciaga boutique...because it's a difficult item to sell...so i doubt many stores will be carrying it...

i hope yo have non-existent hips...because that will be necssary for the jumpsuit to be flattering...

^ Yeah, I have they do not have the jumpsuit in.. in my size.. But thanks for the input.


Have you tried on the jacket? My mate, said that it makes your armes and body seem uber thin, by the way its cut.

I seem to have bad shopping karma, I wanted some pointi Lv multicolour pointy-toe flats that I saw on a Japanese girl, today. To my great dissapointment no-one has heard of them, well at least now at Sloane or Bond street.

So i think ive got bad- shopping karma, at the moment.

Balenciaga Sizing help?!
I've seen a pair of Balenciaga trousers that i want to buy but i'm not sure what the sizing is like; and i don't know whether to get a size above normal or if i'll be okay with my usual size because i've heard they can run quite small, but a lot of people say that Dior is and i've never found that, i hope someone can help.

Thanks,

Diorella

In my experience, Balenciaga definitely runs small, especially the high-waisted items. Unfortunately, they're also extremely inconsistent and the fit has varied from season to season...I suggest you ask for very accurate waist and hip measurements before commiting to anything.

Sorry if that's not too helpful...

I second that. I wouldn't touch Balenciaga unless I could try anything on. They are infamous for their sizing problems.

I finally found a pair of the fab gladiator sandals at the weekend in Harvey Nics, I am a UK 4.5 which is a 37.5, they had a pair left in the 38.5, I could only just get my foot in it, and no way was the zip going to do up!!! My feet felt fat for the rest of the day!! . crazy sizing!

The shoe sizing is ridiculous also yes i agree, i tried a pair of the wedge boots with the shearling trim last year ( the f/w 04 ones ) and they were tiny in my usual size *sob*
