Hello there,

How are you?  Have you already found something precious during the sales?  If not, I might be of help.  In this post, I prepared a small selection of items that you can find on sales at some of my favorite brands.  I know it’s a bit late, but look at the bright side: if you find these pieces, you’ll probably get 50% by now (ooh happy face)…

I think I only put real crushes in this post, and I organised the items by categories: you have the dresses, some skirts, pants, jackets and coats and so on.  Happy shopping 🙂

The London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017-2018 Report


After the NYFW, let’s have a look at what happened during its London counterpart.  I think that London Fashion Week (LFW) is probably the least popular of the four.  I’m not sure why though…

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.

Checkers: SS15 Trend

Hello there,

It’s been a long time, and I’m sorry about that. I hope that you all are great, that you are enjoying summer, and…that you are ready to take some fashion risks. Because in this post, I will write about a particular print: the checkers.

This trend could be seen on various catwalks, including Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, and Altuzarra.

More affordable, and more easily wearable are the (very Belgian) pieces I will show you here 🙂

First of all, Essentiel-Antwerp proposes *amazing* pieces (as usual):

Special Post: Blake Lively’s Press Tour

Hello there,

How are you doing today?

I know that I’m late, but in this special post I wanted to talk about the stunning, the statuesque, the gorgeous fashionista: Serena Van der Woodsen Blake Lively.

The new mom has been promoting her new movie, “The Age of Adaline”, and she’s been killing it with her outfits. Every time, it was classy, sexy, beautiful… but also super different and original. And that’s why I wanted to dedicate this special post to her very fashionable press tour.

All right, let’s face it, there are plenty of great designers out there. And if your name is Blake Lively, I’m pretty sure that you could wear any designer’s outfit you want. So, she could have been wearing Chanel, or Gucci at every single event; but I think she wouldn’t have made quite a statement.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of Chanel, Gucci, Dior, and the like; but so is everyone. Hence, if you wear them, you kinda play it safe, don’t you think? So instead, she took major fashion risks: regarding prints, regarding colors, regarding cuts, etc. (Granted, she wore many pieces that she sells on her website Preserve, but still).

Enough talking, let’s have a look at Blake’s magnificent promotion tour looks. I love the fact that every outfit is super different from the other: she wore coats, she wore high-waisted pants, she wore purple, she wore prints, she wore skirts, she wore long dresses, she wore short dresses, … And she was stunning. Every. Single. Time.

Hello there,

How have you been mes amies?

Long dresses.  Colorful pants.  Fluid materials.  Fun prints.  We all love it.  Add a touch of elegance, and you have a Spring/Summer trend: Hippie Chic.  Designers such as Gucci, Etro, Pucci, Max Mara, and Dries Van Noten, were examples of actors of this seventies revival.

In this post, I will show you where you can find pieces to rock Vanessa Hudgens’ favorite style 🙂

Essentiel Antwerp has awesome maxi dresses with floral or abstract prints, that seem to be extremely nice to wear.  And if you are looking for a pair of wide leg pants that do not look like pajamas, you now know where to find them!

Flower Power: SS15 Trend

Hey there girls,

How are you doing today?  Personally, I’m great.  You know why?  I can feel the spring coming!  We have a nice sunny day in Belgium today and it makes me chipper 🙂

What’s better than a sunny day to rock flowers, the first trend of the Spring/Summer 2015?  In this post, as promised, I will show various pieces from several brands that you can use to sport the trend.

I know that this is not the most original trend (as Miranda Priestly would say: “Florals?  For Spring?  Groundbreaking!”), but this is always efficient: it’s pretty, it’s girly, and it’s fresh.  So, let’s have a look at what the brands offer us.

If you read the post about my favorite looks from Essentiel Antwerp, then you must have noticed several pieces with a flower print already.  Here is a gorgeous sample of pieces that you can find in their SS15 collection:
