Be my Valentine ?

Hey You <3

Valentine’s day is around the corner and wether you have a boyfriend/husband/fiancé or nothing at all, it’s another occasion to find and flaunt in a cute dress and have a great night out !

I chose this cute little red dress from Mango’s spring collection. I love the off the shoulder  look to tease a little. It’s not really noticeable on the pictures but the material is really pretty, it’s a little satiny which is really classy. The color is really vibrant and flattering too. I added this leather black wrap belt to accentuate the waist and simple shoes.

My hair is in my simple, usual straightened look and when it comes to make up, it’s nothing crazy, it’s like the usual look I do except from a winged eyeliner. I think it’s a great way to add sophistication for your date.

I hope you like this simple, but effective look !

Dogstooth Print

Hey you ! <3

I’m finally back here, ready to kick 2016 in the butt !

I was busy with revisions all December (yes, that includes Christmas and New Year’s Eve, thanks belgian education system ? ) and then with exams all January until now.

Anyway, here’s my first look of 2016 !

For this look, the focus is mainly on the trousers as you might have noticed. I have been eyeing this pair of trousers on the Mango website for a while now and I was right to wait up to the sales because they were 50% off !! They only cost me 17€ so, I mean, how can you resist ??? ?

I know this might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I like to spice up my outfits and most of all, I like to go out of my comfort zone every now and then and try new things. Dogstooth print (or also known as “Prince of Wales” print ) was something I never tried or owned! But I really love the British, classy vibe it has.

As I said, I like to spice up simple outfits with original items. So here I chose a simple cream jumper and a biker leather jacket and the trousers do the talking.

I hope you like this first look ! More new things are coming up soon ! 😉

Vintage shopping

Hey You ! 

A few weeks ago, Trends-Shaker.com, a Belgian website talking about trends in Belgium (food, fashion, design, etc…) contacted me. They challenged me to take part in a competition among other belgian  instagramers/bloggers.

➜ We had 30 minutes to create a look with vintage clothes from the ‘Melting Pot Kilo vintage store’ in Brussels. We had to use from 3 to 5 kg of their clothes and maximum 2 of our own pieces.

After that, we did a little photoshoot and we had to post one picture on Instagram. The girl with the most likes wins and will receive 30kg of clothes !! 

Please vote for me by liking the picture ➜ here 😀 !


 

This was my very first experience with vintage clothes and vintage shopping. To be honest, before that I never really thought about thrift shopping or vintage clothes. I thought they were only a thing for people with an interest in retro style, wanting to dress like in the 40s/50s etc..

and I was TOTALLY WRONG

As I was browsing through their clothes I realized most of the clothes were from the 90s/80s. I took my mom with me for this experience, she was my age in the 80s. As many of you I think, I have seen pictures of my parents when she was younger, and I always thought my mom’s style was so cool !

First of all, I was chocked over the fact that the woolen jumpers, despite the fact of having been worn, and being 30 years old, were still impeccable. They did not have bubbles on them (you know what I mean ?) and were a lot thicker than the ones we know today….


cough
*Made In China* cough

12355204_10205379213063942_903139559_n-2I knew I wanted to wear a nice jacket. And when I saw this bright red bomber jacket, I couldn’t resist. I also found a bunch of amazingly tailored blazers (included one you’ll see here on another post 😉 ) and I decided to pair it with a suede skirt which is so in trend this year. Funny how you can be in trends in 2015 while vintage shopping ! The pieces that were mine were my converses and my beige jumper.

I highly recommend you to drop by this shop if you’re passing by in Brussels. They sell their clothes 15€/kilo it’s insane !!

Get the look : celebs inspired festive outfits

Hey you <3

Bored of the eternal LBD (little black dress) for christmas and/or New Year’s Eve? Want to shake things up and wear something different, original this year ? You’re at the right place !

I have created/copied 3 different festive looks directly inspired by 3 of my favorite style inspirations :

Alexa Chung

Kate Moss

 Rosie Huntington Whiteley

 


Miss Chung

I love the classy ness and the 60’s vibes Alexa Chung always brings in her outfits. I decided to recreate one of her most iconic outfit from a few years ago : This total burgundy look.

This look is perfect if you want to wear flats but still want to look sophisticated and sexy.

Moss is Boss

You might not be a fan of her today or even when she was younger. But I think Kate Moss is the best when it comes to a carefree and original look. I was inspired by this iconic look from when she was younger and out partying with Naomi Campbell, as you do.

For all you rock stars and 90s-nostalgics out there <3

Elegant like a Rosie

Rosie is one of my biggest style crush lately. She’s always SLAYING on red carpets and I picked one of my favorite outfits of the moment too : the suit. It’s different, elegant, original and one big trend of this season. Many female celebrities have worn one on awards shows, red carpets, etc.. It’s androgynous and a the same time so feminine, I’m obsessed.  You can be sure that you’re going to stand out wearing a suit.

> If you’re scared to go for the full look, go for a nice fitted blazer and cigarette pants, black for example.
