you could have been more than a name on the door

I don't know how, I don't know why. All I know is that I fell asleep for 6 minutes on the floor mid-bite a Triscuit and woke up with my hand in a cup of paint water and having dreamed about THAT Balenciaga line.
Someone needs to explain.Anyway, I'm quite happy I had this absurd dream because I forgot how much I loved this collection and had fun revisiting it and being an insomniac. When I went through the photos at style.com saving the ones to add to a collage I ended up saving I think all but 3 of them...narrowing it down was quite a chore, and I still had to make 2 collages. Whatevs, it's amazing, that's all that matters.There were way more different looks in the collection (shiny pencil pants, for example) but these collages were more for my favorites and less for the sake of presenting the collection in an all-inclusive matter. I didn't really dig the pantaloons but show me structured dresses with the pattern of curtains your aunt from Miami has hanging by her Beach Sweet Beach sign and slightly unsettling family portrait in which her son's facial expression indicates he may have a stick up his butt?Smitten indeed.
(For the record, I do not have that aunt.)
The oversized seams, the huge flowers, the intricate paneling, the TOTALLY KOOKY AND SEIZURE-GIVING boots-
You know what?
No.
NO.
I'm done. This is too much.
I'm done.
Way too epic, I cannot handle it in this state.
Okay?
