Autumn is in full swing and I’m totally digging it. With the lovely weather we’ve been having here in Belgium, it’s been a great vibe. We still have the sunshine AND can do fall dressing, awesome! Here are some of my new fall essentials.
1. Timberland x La Fille d’O boots
Winter is getting rougher each year so I’m very happy to welcome these Timberland boots to my wardrobe. Not just Timberlands, but very special limited edition La Fille d’O x Timberland boots, lasered with the tattoos of the lingerie brand’s founder. The idea is that you balance on two extremes, luxuria and chastity in my case. This collab celebrates both 10 years of La Fille d’O and 40 years of Timberland. That’s my kind of shoe! In fact they’re so special that if you want a pair, you can only order them this or next saturday at Marcoz Antwerp (so on the 5th or 12th of october). It’s definitely worth the trip as the lasering is free with a new pair of 6” Premium Timberland boots and you get to choose between Chastity vs Luxuria and Humility vs Superbia.

2. Hoss Intropia Necklace
This is the second season we have Hoss Intropia in our shop, and again they have wowed me with their amazing prints, cuts, shapes and ah… the accessories. I’ve been wearing this one a ton (exhibit A and B), so I thought it was time for a new buddy.
3. Selected Femme Scarf
We tend to be quite critical when it comes to the free items we get sent. General rule of thumb: if we wouldn’t buy it ourselves, we’re not writing about it. Sometimes, the match is just right. Like with this Selected Femme scarf I found in the mail the other day. It looked like it kida sorta maybe already belonged to me. Perfect colours, perfect size (I like my scarves big), and I’ve been wearing it ever since. (You can find it in a different colour here, although I really prefer mine ) FYI, Selected is doing a pop up store at high end concept store Smets in Brussels until te 12th of October.
4. OMSK sweatshirt
A whole lot of love for this one. The sweater arrived at Lily and the Lady in August and I couldn’t wait for colder days to wear it. Now that it does get a little chilly every now and then, I’ve been sporting it almost non-stop. Great with everything from jeans to skirts, and the fit is amazing! The sleeves are slightly cropped and the shoulders are a little rounded, which gives it an elegant and feminine silhouette.
5. Moody Make up
Fall calls for darker make-up and I am really into these moody reds at the moment. The Clinique polish is great, it was released a couple of months ago especially for sensitive skins. So the product is really mild on your nails, and at the same time I’ve been really pleased with how long it lasts! The colour I’ve been wearing most is called Black Honey and you can find it here.
The other shiny object pictured is a lipstick from the new Riri <3 M.A.C. Fall collection, it’s a moody matte hue called “Talk that Talk”, and will be available in Belgium from the 5th of october. This one’s also limited edition, so be quick if you want it. The down- and upside of this dark berry colour is that it’s very dry. It’s quite hard to apply, so that takes some time, but on the other hand: it lasts aaaages. I wore it last night and I’m so lazy when it comes to reapplying my lipstick, but this one stayed with me for quite some time. (Note: I was even sipping champagne and eating grapes) At first sight, the colour seems chocolatey, but don’t be fooled: once you apply it, this deep purple undertone emerges, it’s absolutely brilliant.
