I have been obsessed with these Balmain slacks since I saw them after the Fall Fashion Week, along with this amazing top

Gorgeous…if not a little hard to wear casually, but it inspired me to spice up a pair of simple black H&M pants I had

So the other day when I made that visit to M&J Trimmings I picked up so brocade ribbon!

I wasn’t going for the same type of embellishment as the Balmain collection, but something with a golden, gilded look.

Done!

I think these will come in very handy from now on!
