Couture Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017-2018

Hello there,

This week was Couture Fashion Week.  Let me repeat.  Couture.  Fashion.  Week.  Put another way, it’s Dreamy-Gowns-OMG-I-Am-Dying Fashion Week.  In this post, I selected for you my favorite looks of my favorite designers.  For some (yep, you know it — Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad), I could have showed you the whole runway!

I’m also really excited to see who’s going to wear these beauties at the future awards shows 😉

Let’s have a look at the crème de la crème of Couture Fashion Week.  All pictures are from Vogue.

2017 Cannes Film Festival: Best Dressed

Hey people,

Last week, the Palme D’Or went to Ruben Östlund for The Square.  But it’s time for us to take a look back at the gorgeous looks we got to see on the red carpet (or rather, the red steps – les marches).

Boho Chic or Hippie Chic?

Hello girls,

How are you doing? I hope you had a great week and that you’re having an even greater weekend 😉

Here in Belgium, we had a few fabulously sunny crisp days. I love those kinds of days, and it made me long for those spring and summer days (and oh oh those summer nights 😀). And I pictured myself sitting at a nice café with some friends, recovering from an epic day at Coachella, pulling off the boho chic style.

And then I thought, wait a minute. What’s boho chic? And what’s hippie chic? Is there actually a difference between these two trends? And if yes, what are they? And then I thought, I cannot be the only person who’s a little confused about this. (Not like I lost any sleep about it, but still… ). So, it’s only natural that I came up with this article: Boho (Chic) vs Hippie (Chic). What’s the deal, trends?

Let’s start with boho chic. Boho comes from bohemian. Bohemian is:

“a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, esp. an artist or writer (New Oxford American Dictionary); or a nonconformist writer or artist who lives an unconventional life (Wordnet).  A synonym would be gipsy.”

When you check various websites, such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, or InStyle, here are the key words that are used to describe the boho chic trends: late 60’s and 70’s, maxi dresses, crochet dresses, Yves Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant, tie dye, paisley, floral, suzani, printed maxi dress, gladiator sandals, floppy hat, a fringe cross-body bag, fur vest, beaded vest, flared jeans, a coin-embellished belt, denim cut-offs, feather earrings, boots, …

The pioneers were Thea Porter (check this, this, and that out) and Talitha Getty (the featured image was taken from CBS), followed by Sienna Miller and Kate Moss in the UK, and the Olsen twins in the US.

Military: SS15 Trend

Hello people,

How are you? I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here is purely Belgian weather. It’s rainy, grey, and then there’s a tiny ray of sunshine. Then it rains again. Which means that every morning, you have to get prepared… just as if you’re going to war 😉

In this post, I will show you pieces you can find to rock the military style, one of SS15 trends. I’ve always liked that style. I don’t know if it’s the same for you, but when I wear a military piece, a jacket for instance, I feel more powerful in a way; like I can do anything. I feel stronger strooooonger than yesterday, now is nothing but my waayyyyy. So here are pieces that can help you brave any sh*tty day!

Hotel Particulier proposes a suede jacket, and a long vest; while Zadig & Voltaire also has a nice sleeveless jacket.
