[Trendspotter: Balenciaga Egyptofunk Collection F/W 2012 + Mirrored Sunglasses]

It's not an unusual thing when some fashionistas are spotted sporting the same outfit or accessories.  At least it's nothing to be worry about or ashamed of, according to the guardian of fashion Anna Dello Russo in her lesson #6: "Somebody wearing your same outfit? Wonderful! You did the right choice" *here*

Well, during the fashion weeks of Spring/Summer 2013 collection, some noted fashionistas seem to generate the same fondness towards these two futuristic-themed pieces: the Balenciaga Egyptofunk Collection F/W'12 and the mirrored sunglasses, as they keep getting caught on camera donned in different styles.

The Balenciaga Egyptofunk galactic tees and sweatshirts sell out in a speed of light, leaving one with no "on-a-second-thought" option ...either get it now or never.  It seems that Nicholas Ghesquire's mission on bringing back the 80's sci-fi geek attire in a space-y balenciaga chic way is quite a hit, seeing from the positive signs shown by the fashion universe. 
And here they are, energized in the fashion weeks by these fabulous fashionable femmes...

[Mirrored Sunglasses] 
"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" is what you might hear yourself say as you catch your own reflection on this nothing but a pair of mirrored sunglasses.
Every fashionable being that walks this earth has started to proclaim their love (again) to the reflective nature of mirrored sunglasses since last season, as they were re-introduced by Rag & Bone and Trussardi in their S/S'12 collections.  
Up til this season, the reign of this eyewear still continues, proven by snap after snap of pictures of its loyal devotees, who have been fashionably sporting their very own pair of mirrored sunnies from one fashion week to another. 
Well, what's not to love from these double-agent shades (UV protector/Mirror 911)?

So, for you who are never gonna lay a hand on this $285 Balenciaga t-shirt *here* or this $3,150 Balenciaga sweatshirt *here* (given the fact that some of them are already sold out) and not willing to justify for a $350 Rag&Bone mirrored sunnies, stow you worries.  You can always refer to them as inspiration, fashion is about "inspire and be inspired"

[Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013: Street Style FĂȘte]

The designer Italiana, Miuccia Prada, once said that "daring to wear something different takes effort."
It is indeed true, given that difference may not always be good or bad.  But be that as it may, the possibility of looking effortlessly dashing above all those efforts is not ruled out, as shown by our modaiole show-goers at Milan Fashion Week S/S'13
It is neatly done by incorporating pieces of exquisite detailing in such an apparent yet tasteful manner.

The legendary Miroslava Duma and Taylor Tomasi-Hill did it again at MFW S/S'13.  The cunning styling of prints and leather that totally worth a helluva rounds of applause. 

It always works when it comes to highlighting the edgy bottom pieces by pairing it with simple tops.

 And of course it works vice versa with edgy tops, as well.

Denim shorts certainly can have the high-fashion vibe to them, with the right styling

Embroidery gone fabulous (and red), yes?
*Those Valentino All-Red Rock Studs Heels are supercalifragilisticexpialidocious*

Tonal suit up, ladies!

 Black and White and never waver...or just a bit, for that saucy pop of color.

The essential Fall Must-Have: Oversized Studded Clutch, Matching Cuffs, Bordeaux Nails, Dark Green, and Bended Heels

And last but not least, the mirrored sunnies that reign supreme
