An interview for Diamanti Per Tutti

An interview for Diamanti Per Tutti

A couple of weeks ago, Antwerp based jewelry brand Diamanti Per Tutti asked me to interview and photograph a fellow blogger. And another blogger would in her turn also interview and photograph me. The idea was that you could ask 5 questions, and you can ask anything! I was pretty...

3.1 Phillip Lim Geode print

Just a quick update in between packing for The Big Move to share my crush of the moment: this 3.1 Phillip Lim geode print. The colours are so amazing and the whole thing feels really fresh to me. Very high on my (imaginary) wishlist. This print is a very close second. Ah the craving. It doesn’t...

Hello Jetlag

Hello Jetlag

A very jetlagged hello from NYC, and what better to do than write a small update when insomnia strikes? 2014 has been a tiring yet amazing rollercoaster so far, and its latest twist has sent me off to NYC on a quick break. I’m launching a new site called The Epic Guide with my boyfriend soon,...
Birds of Paradise

Birds of Paradise

The Antwerp Fashion museum MoMu has a new exposition going on called Birds of Paradise. I got to visit it yesterday on a guided tour by curator Karen Van Godtsenhoven, so needless to say I was pretty pleased! You see, in these environments, I get to truly geek out about clothing the way I like it. Not the...
The Cat's Pajamas

The Cat’s Pajamas

Yesterday was a sweatshirt, pencil skirt and converse kind of day. Most of the sweatshirts I own don’t really work well for me with a pencil skirt, but with my latest (my fifth!) OMSK sweatshirt, that all changed. The silhouette of the Madonna is a bit less fitted, with batwing sleeves and rounded  hem at...

Everything you need to know about The Grand Budapest Hotel

I had been looking forward to the release of Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel for quite some time, so when the movie hit the theaters here in Belgium, I just had to go and watch it as soon as I could. With the obligatory popcorn in hand, I was immersed in Wes Wonderland almost immediately...

Me neither, but here’s the answer anyway! Seattle based artist Cheyenne Randall, has a weird and kind of wonderful Tumblr featuring fictionally tattooed icons. A creative use of photoshop indeed. Some of my favorites…

Adventures close to Home

Getting some fresh air weekend while strolling trough Antwerp. Spring is definitely coming, seeing as it was the first day I could wear my favorite trench out in stead of a winter coat. Can’t wait! Since we don’t really have time or money to leave the country now that we’re renovating, the boyfriend and I...

Wardrobe details: Louis Féraud clutch

Way back when I was a student in Leuven, I came across this beautiful suede clutch bag in a thrift shop in Leuven. It was priced 2,5 euro’s and when I opened it, the amazing blue velvet lining had a Louis Féraud label. There’s something about finding that amazing gem for next to nothing that...
No Glitter No Glory at Blogging Business

No Glitter No Glory at Blogging Business

Let’s rewind a little and give you some background info on my blogging history! Back in 2006, I published my first post ever on the popular (and award winning) blog Asfaltkonijn. I was 19 years old and it was a completely different time. Blogging was still considered very geeky, and not in a sexy way. These were...
