Love the fashion life

My thoughts on Fashion, Love, Life and New York…

Out of the office


In my previous post I told you that I had the intention of blogging more frequent. But time got in the way – again. Summer arrived, I graduated (YAY!) and all of my time got absorbed by meeting friends, having a cocktail (or two), sunbathing and some great trips (close to home and further away). But as summer passed by, I realized I didn’t spend any time on this blog. And admittedly, since my inspiration was lost anyway, I didn’t feel bad about it either. I don’t do half work. I either write something I’m satisfied about, or I don’t write anything at all. That is why I’ve decided to take an ‘official’ break from this blog and make up my mind whether or not I still want to continue with ‘Love the fashion life’. During this time I’ll be able to search for some new inspiration and clean things up (lay out, content, etc.). Also: I’m officially starting my job hunt. So maybe a job in the fashion industry may suddenly give the much needed inspiration after all. Fingers crossed!



NEW IN: Sandro Jeans

During Easter Weekend I went on a short citytrip to Paris with my BFF. In spite of the cold and our sore feet & muscles, we had a BLAST! It was my fifth time in the city of blinding lights. Of course I had seen most of the touristic spots on my previous trips, so this one was all about what Charlotte (the BFF) really wanted to see (it was her second time in the city), some spots I had yet to discover and stores, stores, stores!

You may be surprised that after one day only, having seen cultural highlights such as Montmartre (Moulin Rouge, Place du Tertre and Sacre Coeur) and all kinds of stores (Galeries Lafayette, Chanel, la Rue Saint-Honor√© (Colette!)), we (Charlotte) only shopped 1 thing: an egg shaper! We had been very good girls! Until the second day at least…

Fashionata Ladies Night

Yesterday evening the first Fashionata Ladies Night took place at Renaissance, Antwerp. Fashionata blogger and host of the event, Sofie Valkiers, entertained her fans, friends and other fashionistas with some Piper Champagne, giveaways, workshops and a fashion show! And that all after a week of ‘fashionista war‘! Not everyone would remain this calm, kind, elegant and sophisticated (though a bit nervous ūüėČ ). Out of over a 1000 entries (you had to subscribe to be able to attain an invitation) I was one of the lucky ones to obtain a ticket!

In my opinion, Renaissance was the perfect location to hold this fashionable event. For those who don’t know the store: Renaissance is part of the ‘Princess‘ group and sells hot and trendy brands such as Victoria Beckham, Peter Pilotto, Alexander Wang and MSGM. The all white store just breaths elegance, pure perfection.

Maybe you’re all curious if I was one of the giveaway winners? Unfortunately I was not. One girl won a diamond (worth of ‚ā¨ 950!) and another one (who was the fair winner for her impeccable red lips/high heels look) went home with a package consisting of a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, a headphone, Diamanti per Tutti jewelry and a free overnight stay at hotel Julien! Since I already won the Sofie Valkiers for Diamanti per Tutti Valentine’s give-away, it’s only fair someone else took home all of these must haves. Congrats to them!

For a lack of a decent camera, I took some pictures with my iPhone, so you can get an idea of the evening:

NEW IN: CRIME sneakers

Sneakers are currently very hot and trendy. Everywhere you go you see someone with Nikes, Pumas, New Balances or sneakers from another brand. ‘Sports(shoe)wear’ apparently has gained an important place in our ‘shoewardrobe’, a place just as important as a pair (a lot of) pairs¬†of ¬†sky high heels.

With Spring coming up and all of my old sneakers worn down to the bone, I was in some desperate need of a new pair. It needed to be a pair that I could wear Winter to Summer, with a bit of ‘fantasy’ and above all ‘comfortable’ for my BFF-trip to Paris (countdown!)!

Have I found them? DUH, the title says it all! These pretty and ‘a bit of everything’ (spikes, different fabrics, the worn look…)¬†Crimes will be my ‘partner in crime’ (got it? ūüėČ ) the following months years!

SS13 – Paul & Joe Sister

This past weekend I was on the seaside. With all of the new spring/summer collections in stores (my ss13 wish list is coming up soon), I just couldn’t resist paying a visit to one of my favorite shopping addresses:¬†Pied de Poule¬†(remember¬†this?!)! Leaving this store empty handed? NEVER!

I’ve tried on several dresses, but in the end I was in doubt about two. Which one did I choose?

Hairdo Inspiration..*

What do you do when you have an appointment with your hairdresser? There are 2 options: you know what haircut you want and you even take a picture of it with you, OR you doubt endlessly and afterwards you end up with your old haircut, just a bit shorter. Currently I belong to that final group.

I have exactly 12 days left – I know, I’m thinking about it long beforehand – to decide which haircut I should get. You’re probably wondering: ‘Girl, what’s the big deal?!’. Well, I find myself in a dilemma. On one hand, I love long and wavy hair, which is why I have let my hair grown for quite some time. On the other hand, I’m crazy about short cuts such as Karlie Kloss’s. I’ve collected the ones that I’m considering:
