How To Dress To Go From The Beach To The Street?

Hey there,

How are you?  I hope you’re all going great.  I don’t know about you, but gosh I really need some sun right now!  For those of you who are not in Belgium, you should know that it’s been basically rain, grey sky, a little more rain, and some grey sky again for a month (give or take).  Put another way, we are in November!  So no wonder that I’m craving some holidays.  I have to hold on for two more weeks, and then I’m off (happy face)!

So, if like me you still have some summer trips ahead, this post is for you :). I put together 4 looks that will get you from the beach straight to the street!  Sometimes it is just a pain in the a** to pack an outfit in your beach bag for after the beach; or – even worse – to go back to your hotel or apartment to get changed before hitting the streets for a quick bite to eat, for a gelato, or for some shopping.  Wouldn’t it be easier if one single outfit could do the trick?  Yes, definitely.  Let’s have a look!

How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Pink Parade Edition

Hello girly girls,

How are you doing today?  In this post, you’ll find a small selection of pieces if you want to rock one of the SS17 trends, namely the Pink Parade edition.  And, let’s be honest, who (like, who) wouldn’t want to wear pink all season long?  I love wearing pink (and not only on Wednesday 😉 ).  Besides, it seemed to work pretty well for Elle Woods right?

If you still have doubts about that very girly colour, you should know that it was seen on the Hermès, Michael Kors, Sacai, and Sies Marjan shows.

How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Comfort Zone Edition

Hello girls,

How are you?  In this post I prepared a small selection so that you can sport the “Comfort Zone” trend.  I love some sequins, and intricate pieces.  But sometimes, I just want to wear neutral colours and sleek lines.  Something easy and practical – dirty word in fashion, but sometimes that is just what we want.

The trend was seen on several shows during the fashion month: Kenzo, Stella McCartney, Valentino, and Balenciaga.

Let’s see where we can shop some very comfortable (but still very very stylish) pieces 🙂 Continue reading “How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Comfort Zone Edition”

How To Wear the Spring-Summer 17 Trends? The Wallflower Edition

Hey people,

I hope you’re doing great!  Let’s continue our SS17 series, and today we’ll turn to one of our ultimate favorite: wallflower print.  The trend was seen on the Michael Kors, Balenciaga, Paul Smith, and Isabel Marant’s runway shows.

It’s a super easy trend, but oh so efficient!  You can basically sport it anywhere, anytime: work, vaycay, music festival, dinner with the family, … We love it!  So, where can we shop pieces to rock the trend?  Let’s have a look!

Couture Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017

Paris. Fashion week. Haute couture. Probably the equivalent to “Oh my God! This is so beautiful, get outta here!” (Or “Shut the front door” as James Corden would say).  Every single time, I’m blown away by the stunning and dreamy dresses. It’s not necessarily about being wearable, it’s about designing beautiful, heavenly, out of this world looks.  At least, that’s the way I see it.

For each show, I selected my favorite looks. And I must admit that for some (I’m looking at you Elie and Zuhair), it was really hard to choose…  (All pictures are from Vogue).

A Little Selection of Party Outfits for the Festive Season

Hello everyone,

Do you realize that Christmas is like… in a couple of weeks?!  I swear, sometimes it’s like a troll is  stealing time from me.  There’s simply no other reasonable explanation.

Anyway, if you’re looking for the perfect outfit for the holidays, and if you don’t have the time to go walking around for hours in search of  it, I made you a small selection here 🙂

Essentiel-Antwerp: a silver sequined dress (need I say more?!?), a sexy LBD, the cutest skirt (I tried it on, but unfortunately it didn’t suit me), and a gold sequined pouch.

Venise Film Festival: My Top 20

Hey there,

Sorry for the late post, but I’m currently in China and things have been pretty hectic!  I hope everything is great with you…

The 73rd Venise Film Festival started on August 31st and closed a few days ago.  You know how I love festivals and other (award) shows where actresses and other public figures make us swoon with the most gorgeous dresses.  Well this year was no different, so now is the time to take a look back at the best looks we saw on the red carpet 🙂

20.  Gemma Arterton in Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini and Messika Jewels

What To Pack For A Weekend In Knokke?

Hey there,

Are you surviving the crazy heat?  I barely am.  Seriously.  When you are not at the beach, and when the temperature is above the 30°C, it is unbearable.  So what I really want right now is to spend a few days on the Belgian coast. Luckily, I will in a couple of weeks (hopefully, it won’t rain by then :p) …

And since I know I’m going to Knokke for two days, I’m already packing in my head.  I thought I would share it with you 😉
