Well, I guess you’ve figured out by now that we’re really into music as well as fashion. We were hence kinda psyched to try out the X-mini, a teeny tiny music gadget with a lot of impact. This little ball is actually a speaker that is lightweight, visually pleasing and compact. It charges via your computer, can play for 11 hours straight and costs next to nothing. The ideal buddy to take on holiday (Check!), attach to your phone while getting ready in the bathroom (check!) and take to festivals (to be continued).
Love the clutch, the green coat & the classic white converse. Oh and the nails!
In the last month and a half, I went to no less than five different concerts and festivals. That means I’ve been dancing A LOT and enjoyed an awfull lot of good music. Couldn’t be happier about that!
Two Door Cinema Club
Tuesday was the long awaited concert of Two Door Cinema Club in the Botanique. Those of you who read the blog regularly, know that their music makes me very cheerful. I got to know them at Rock Werchter two years ago and have been listening to them ever since. Starting with “Sleep Alone” and following with “Undercover Martyn” set the bar high from the moment go. At a certain point you could feel that the band’s touring adventures took away a bit of the enthusiasm I saw at Werchter, but about midway though the concert they were completely into it and so was the crowd. Dancing garantueed with Two Door Cinema Club.
In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye premieres december 6th in the USA, so we’ll probably have to wait a while before it comes to Belgium. For now, the trailer succeeded in making me curious. - I adoooooore striiit- Can’t. Bloody. Wait!
… This tee by Brian Lichtenberg. Who needs Céline when you have Féline, right?

Back from a looong weekend in London! Had a lovely time, especially since it was the first time I went back with the BF since we’ve lived there together. To sum up the weekend: Three exhibitions, some shopping, a lot of walking, a whole lot of cocktails and if possible, even more food.
I absolutely adored the Hollywood costume exhibition at the V&A. I think it might be my favorite so far. I have a soft spot for film costume and it was amazing to see some of these garments in real life. I think I pinched my boyfriend about a million times: “Look, there’s Fight Club!… And The Birds!!… And Moulin Rouge!!!”. Wow. Read more..
Nothing nicer than having brunch with your girlfriends on a Sunday afternoon. While Patricia was revisiting London, our good friend Charlotte was back in Belgium for the weekend so I decided to catch up with her and some other friends at Bar Louis in Leuven (and indulge in lots of champagne and food). One of the better places to take your first date or to spend your Sunday.
I’m finding myself desperately craving some new La Fille d’O unmentionables. My eye fell on the Clap Your Hands capsule collection a few days ago and I can’t stop thinking about it. Especially the Better Puppy and Silver Mouth styles charme big time. It might be daring, but dear lord ain’t it pretty?
Back in July, my friend Ploy introduced me to the concept of Bubble tea. We were in a mall in Bangkok and I didn’t quite understand the idea. It’s tea? With a flavor? And sweet bubbles? Ploy told me it was all the rage in Asia, and even in London. I’d never heard of it in Belgium and at the time, it didn’t really appeal to me and I let that one slide.
Back in Antwerp I spotted Jili. It hadn’t opened yet, but this was it: Bubble Tea was coming to Belgium. When I was strolling around on a sunday afternoon last month, I noticed that Jili had opened its doors. The lovely owners immediately offered me a sample and since then, I am so hooked. I actually like the jelly more than I do the bubbles (or “Boba”), and my absolute favorite is Jasmin tea with Lychee flavor and green apple jelly. YUM!
I’m totally into Hart of Dixie. Not only because of hot neighbour Wade and Golden boy George, also because of the sweet southern vibe, Lavon Hayes and Lemon’s cute uptight side. And because of the styling. Rachel Bilson resembles her alter ego Zoe Hart in more than one way wardrobe wise. There’s the shorts, there’s the blazers, there’s the casual meets chic. Although Zoe runs around the Bluebell town square in higher heels than Rachel would on an average day. But maybe that’s just to prove she’s a New Yorker.
Anyway, when I started working on this post, I immediately got an e-mail from Marijs with pictures of Rachel. Which made me wonder why we hadn’t featured her before. I guess it’s safe to say it’s about time for a Style Highlight on this petite actress!
