30 Inspiring Outfit Ideas To Try This November

Hello there,

Getting dressed in November.  The key here is: layers.  And oversized sweaters :). That’s what I love about fall.  You can walk outside with just a sweater, or with a cute shirt and a long coat.  In winter, it’s more complicated to get out without a full on onion look.  So, let’s enjoy it while we can 😉

31 Inspiring Outfit Ideas To Try This October

Hello there,

How are you adjusting to fall? 🙂 Are you excited?  I know I am.  At least I am now, I’ll probably be less excited when it’s all grey and rainy and dull.  But right now, I’m over the moon.  I can’t stop thinking about hot chocolate (don’t let me fool you, I never stop thinking and never stop getting excited about hot chocolate), pecan pie, and warm sweaters…. I’m sure I’m not the only one – yeah, you know who you are 😀

Anyway, here you’ll find 31 looks you can try out this October and these looks are featured by some of my favorite fashionistas and favourite fashion bloggers: Olivia Palermo, Rachel Bilson, Paola Alberdi, Alexandra Pereira, Michelle Madsen and Xenia Van Der Woodsen.

One word for October: layers.  In Belgium, you can have absolutely any weather imaginable: warm and cold; dry and wet; summery and wintery.  Hence, you gotta leave your house *prepared*.  The best solution, as far as I’m concerned, is thus layering my dears!

Week 1: October 1 – 8

10 Things You Didn’t Know About… Oscar de la Renta

Hey there,

Oscar de la Renta makes the news today.  Three days ago, he would have turned 84 years old.  Five days ago, Peter Copping announced that he would leave the brand immediately.  So I thought it would be nice to get to know the late designer a little better!

  1.  Oscar de la Renta was born July 22, 1932 in the Dominican Republic and died in Connecticut at the age of 82, after a long battle with cancer.  When he was 18, he travelled to Madrid to study painting at the Academy of San Fernando.  How did he get into fashion?  When he was in Madrid, he was enlisted by Cristobal Balenciaga to sketch for him.  Afterwards, he went to Paris and worked at Lanvin; and then he moved to New York in the early 60’s and set up his own label [1,2].

First Purchase of the Season: Maxi Skirt from Kocca

Hey there,
How have you been?  You know I told you last week that I went shopping and that I found bought 2 lovely pieces.  Well, in this post I will show you this second item.
I bought a maxi skirt, also from Kocca.  When I saw it, I loved it immediately; but I wasn’t sure it would suit me, given that I’m quite short.  Well, guess what?!  It looked great, and I have to say I’m really glad about it 🙂
Check it out (I took the pictures from the brand’s website):

How To Wear The Oversized Sweater?

Bonjour les ami(e)s,

Today, I’ll write about an easy but stylish look.  Oversized sweater + skinny jeans + boots = a winner.

If you lack inspiration (it happens to everyone), or if you feel lazy (it happens to everyone), just throw an oversized sweater over a pair of skinny jeans, and you’re good to go.

A/W Sales – Part 4 (and Last Part, I Promise)

Hello there fashionistas of the world,

I hope you are all having a great day 🙂  This post will be about a piece I bought on sales in January (yet another).  I promise, this will be the last post about my purchases of last month!

Today’s post is dedicated to an accessory.  I don’t think I ever wrote exclusively about an accessory, so this is a first.  Accessories are über important.  They can really finish off a look.  I know it’s a cliché thing to say, but I really think they have that power.

You’re probably asking yourself: “What kind of magical accessory is she talking about?”  Well, wait no more my friends, and just look:

A/W Sales – Part 3

Bonjour people,

How are you doing today?  In this post, I will – again – write about something I bought last month on sales.

As I already told you, I love sales.  What I love more, is when I can get a classic on sales 🙂  The classic I’m talking about is a black skinny jeans.  This is a piece that everyone should have.  When you lack inspiration, it is your go-to piece!  You can wear it with almost anything, AND still look fierce.  My new skinny jeans is from IKKS – oh yes, in case you didn’t notice, it’s one of my favorite brands 😉
