My name is S and I am a twenty-something Belgian. I live in a small and super cute town in the French speaking part of Belgium. The reason why I started this blog? Well unsurprisingly, I just love fashion. Always have, always will. I am a very private person – if you looked at my blog, you probably noticed that there aren’t any pictures of me and I will probably try to keep those at a bare minimum – but still, I will try to tell you a little more about myself.
When you’re a little girl (or a little boy, I don’t discriminate), people ask you “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. And to that question, I always answered the same thing: “I want to be a fashion designer…. or a lawyer” (I love Ally Mac Beal). I was genuinely convinced I would study law or fashion design. I guess the latter was more of a dream career. You see, I’m an extremely reasonable person (probably too reasonable sometimes), and I don’t think I would have risked that: good schools are expensive, while the probability of success is quite low. Let me tell you a little anecdote. In my last year of secondary school – senior year for my American readers 😉 – we had the opportunity to meet professionals from the sector you were interested in. I met a man who worked in fashion, and he asked me if I had any questions. I didn’t. Not specific questions anyways. I just wanted to know what it was like to work in fashion. He told me, and I will remember that all my life: “If you don’t have any questions, this meeting is pointless. My goal here is to deter you from choosing these studies.” There were too many fashion-designers-wannabe, and not enough places he said. Well, let’s just say that this lovely man achieved his goal. Now, you are probably telling yourself, so S is a lawyer then. Well…. no, that’s the other thing. A couple months before graduating high school, I decided for a Bachelor (and then Master, and then Doctorate) in Business. This is just a tiny example of how indecisive I can be 🙂
Now, why this blog? Yes, I love fashion but there are plenty of great fashion blogs out there. I told you earlier that I’m from Belgium. But the reason why this information is in the name of my blog, is that I ❤ Belgium. I’m proud to be Belgian. We have plenty of super talented people in Belgium: singers, actors, directors, but also, designers. Hence, what I will try to do with this blog, among other things, is to make you discover Belgian designers, and Belgian brands. But, I will also write about my favorite brands, my fashion icons, some styling tips, …
Since we live in a super-duper-connected world, you can find me everywhere: Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and, if you want to know more about my inspiration, favorite designers (Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad to only name a few), and style icons, you can check out my Tumblr 🙂
I hope you will enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it (and if you do, you can subscribe here 😉 )! If you have any questions, any requests, any comments, please feel free to contact me. I’m really looking forward to reading you!
