Press Days SS13 Antwerp

A few weeks ago we were invited to enjoy the press days again. As usual, Antwerp is first to invite us so of we went!
We were welcomed very friendly with drinks and fingerfoods. Had a little chat with fellow bloggers and loved the clothes, shoes and accesories. I could do this all day, but unfortunately there are other obligations - school for instance. I have no more words to hold you, here are some sneak peeks from the Antwerp Press Days.

MOD DE DIM

As Summer is almost over, we have to take out our tights again. As much as I hate wearing them, a nice print or color can convince me to buy some. Or, make me doubt, as I only have simple black tights. For example, the new tights from DIM look pretty good! I think I'm going to buy some decent pairs, I'm in desperate need of colorful ones.
DIM came up with a new theme for Autumn/Winter 2012: Miss CitaDIM. The DIM-girls are all over the world, from New York to Paris to Shangai. Each DIM-girl has her own style. The tights can have a little vintage touch, can be colorful, classy, etc. With the DIM-tights, you can be who you want to be.
The prices are between 8.80 and 15.50 euros.

Alice Temperley for JBC

First Monday of September is for a lot of kids one of the most hatest days of the year: back to school! Thank god for us, who are done with secundary school, we only start the 24th. Monday was a happy day for me and the other fellow bloggers who decided to go to the blog launch from Alice Temperley for JBC.
The collection doesn't contain a lot of pieces, but the pieces form a unity. They are romantic and classy, but still have a little twist that make them a bit though. At first sight you'd say the clothes are only wearable for a fancy evening, but if you match them well, you can wear them anytime.
The collection is timeless, thanks to the black and white fabrics and the rich details on every piece of clothing. I'm also very happy to announce that this collection is affordable for all of us. So get to the JBC store and buy that fancy dress you always wanted but couldn't afford!

New Look AW12

During the press days, I absolutely fell in love with the new collection New Look presented us. They had that little edgy side I adored but yet stayed stylish. First week of September, I'm going shopping with my sister - I still owe her a birthday present - Shanah will come too and so does my brother. Little family shopping spree, haha. I'm planning on spending a long time in New Look, drooling over all the things I want to buy.
So excited to go shopping again, I've been broke for ages, not sure I'll be able to control myself. Anyways, here are some of my favorite pictures from the Lookbook.

Sandrina Fasoli AW12

Yes, I'm the worst blogger ever. I just kinda forget to blog during summer - or any holidays. My time is being spent at work, on Facebook, downloading things and I'm finally cleaning out my laptop. I'm also moving this year, going to stay at a student house. Sorta. But still lots of things to do such as painting and moving stuff. Hope it will all work out with all the freedom I'll have, haha.
Now, here's a little something I got a while ago. I kinda have a weird taste sometimes, going from all classy to sporty comfy. Like a real chameleon! This is something I'd love to wear, the little details are really awesome and are really the finishing touch to an outfit.

I.Code by IKKS - Let's Get Dressed Up

I know I've been absent, and I don't have a valid reason. I've just been busy, that's it. Summer is flying and we haven't had very good weather here. Belgian Summer = rain. Hate it! It was so nice in Croatia, I miss the heat. We had at least 30°C the whole two weeks we were there.
While I'm talking about Summer, here are some clothes from IKKS I really liked. They made me miss Summer even more. But Belgian Summer doesn't stop me from wearing dresses and skirts! So, IKKS, here I come!

Diesel Women's Collection

Here are some pictures from the new Diesel collection I absolutely adore! Diesel is, as said before, one of my favorite brands. They have that little rough, edgy rock'n'roll touch I would want everyday. Now, here are some pictures, others can be found on Facebook as you may already know. And while you're there, hit that Like-button for me?

A.P.C. Women's Collection

I'm not gonna bother you with a lot of talking, just warning you that I'm back home now to blog. Next month I'll be at my grandma's, because it's closer to work and so I can keep her company. This means I won't have any internet connection on week days. The weekends, I will we at home though and I promise I'll do my very best to blog then. You just have to know that I won't blog regularly - not that I do now but you can see what I mean.
Now without any other introduction, here are some pictures from A.P.C.'s Women collection. You can find all my favorites on Facebook, as usual.

Diesel Autumn/Winter 2012 Campaign Screen Test

Diesel, one of my favorite brands! I love the edginess they can put in their pieces, the rock look and attitude. Diesel and me, that's like a perfect match.
This Screen Test campaign put fashion and strong personalities together and created a set of very cool shots. The creator of this series is Steven Meisel, the iconic fashion photographer, and he used contemporary models such as Karen Elson, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jamie Bochart, Fei Fei Sun, Coco Rocha, Mirte Maas, Sid Ellisdon, Ethan James, Yuri Pleskun, Sallieu Jalloh and Dae Na. Each of them expresses their own individuality with different props.

A.P.C. Men's Collection

I'm back from my holiday! Got a nice tan - well, to my standards - and I'm full of energy! I still owe you some posts with nice collections that are coming in stores soon. I won't talk too much but just show you some items I really liked. You can see more pictures on Facebook if you got curious :)

Salvatore Ferragamo Accesories Women

I know it's been a while, but I have an excuse. Exams started the first Monday of June and after my exams I gave my laptop to someone to arrange some stuff for next year. And now I'm leaving again.
Good news is, you can enjoy plenty of new pictures on Facebook, the articles online will follow as soon as I can without spamming :)

A little time ago, I went to see Salvatore Ferragamo's Autumn/Winter collection for 2012 and I really liked it. As it is almost Autumn, after a non-existing Summer, the press releases are dropping in my mailbox. I opened one randomly and I fell in love with a particular item of this collection. One of the most perfect watches I ever saw. There were more items of course that caught my eye and I will share some of them here with you, the others you can find on Facebook of course.

Hearts #1

Press days are over, so are most of the events. At least, they are for me. Exams are coming and then I'm off to Croatia! I'm really looking forward to enjoying some sun and the coolness of a swimming pool. Now that the calm periods are coming, I've decided to keep blogging. But about what? Well, this section is about random pictures I saw online and liked or something I really want.
The very first Hearts-post is about something I'd love to have. An industrial-piercing. Unfortunately, my parents won't let me have one :( Here are a few pictures I found on weheartit.

New Look AW12

Oh my god! The new collection from New Look is just.. awesome! It has an edgy look, with print pants and loose sweaters and shirts. Collars, spikes and studs, you see it all. High heels with an attitude, spikey rings and necklaces. New Look also has a lingerie-collection that is very feminine. Something else they started is make-up and such as nail polish, fake eyelashes, etc.
The location for the showroom was pretty cool as well, and so beautiful. It was located in a poolhouse, with inside pool. Unfortunately, we didn't know about the pool, so no bikinis, no using the pool. We did get to meet other lovely bloggers and stayed talking, drinking - no, not only champagne - and eating for quite a while. Other people we met were two sweet British co-workers from New look, Andrea Logan and Lucy Kalus. They were both so sweet! And for once, I could talk English with native speakers and not just with Shanah. People look weird at us when we do that. In September, we're going shopping. Hardcore. I need everything.
Enough said, here's a little peek, more pictures on Facebook. Damn it was hard choosing pictures.

Moët & Chandon: Ice Imperial

I like to get a drink now and then, for instance during the press days or at home while eating some chips and stuff. Most of the time, it's bubbles. I love bubbles, it's fresh and I love the taste, but damn, that one drink over the line hits you when it's too late. I can't hold my liquor so I get tipsy after three glasses most of the time. Enough said about me not being good at drinking.
Moët Ice Imperial is the first champagne specially designed to be drunk with ice. Ice? Yes! You read this correctly. Thanks to the special formula, the champagne with the ice cubes keeps the taste longer intact and it stays fresh longer. Most champagnes tend to lose their bubbles when they heat up, Ice Imperial doesn't.
There were also some extra's. First, you could add flavours into your glass of champagne: lime, mint or strawberries. After a few minutes, your champagne tasted fresher (with mint or lime) or sweeter (with strawberries). Second, there was an app for Moët Ice Imperial. You just took a picture and then you could add a special filter, kind off like Instagram, but with other filters.
I have said about everything I wanted, if there are any questions, just ask and I'll reply asap :)
You can also found me on Facebook.

A.P.C. Brussels' First Birthday

Jean Touitou organized a little party for his brand. The Brussels store of A.P.C. blew it's first candle and that had to be celebrated! The party was quite sober with drinks, little snacks, some music and ofcourse lots of people, but tthat completely fits the French brand's code. The store is designed by architect Laurent Deroo, who has worked with the brand for ten years. The Brussels store is quite unique, as it has a little backyard and a very cool wavy wooden ceiling. A little extra: A.P.C. exists 25 years this year and everybody has to know. There will be events all around to world, starting in Tokyo and ending in Paris, where it all started, with a big ass party later this year.
To be very honest, I didn't quite like the women's clothes that were in the store that day. But I absolutely loved the men's collection! I want my next boyfriend to wear clothes like that, haha. So, here are some snapshots from that rainy evening. Also to be found on Facebook.

Salvatore Ferragamo AW12

Salvatore Ferragamo? To be honest, I had no idea what I could expect in the beautiful suite of the Amigo hotel where some items were showed for next season. I did Google it so I did know it was about fancy shoes and bags - like the iconic Sophia bag and the Marilyn Monroe shoes. I was a bit surprised to see clothes, my quick Google-search didn't show this, but there were some nice items. Unfortunately they didn't catch on my camera - yes, I suck at taking pics.
As I quite love fancy things, I fell for some pieces in the showroom or more showsuite. The trip hurt my feet when I got home, my shoes were fancy but the cobble stones weren't. But, what the heck, it was worth it. These are some of my favorite pieces shown, other pictures to be found on Facebook.

Converse - Just Add Color

Converse and Maasmechelen Village organized a little something called "Just Add Color". It is actually quite simple, you buy a pair of Converse shoes and you can personalize them. Well, not yourself ofcourse, three graffiti-artists do it for you. You hand in your pair of shoes and tell them what you want. And tadaa, your very own pair of Converse-shoes! After reading this, I just had to go so I convinced my mom to take me there. Thank god she was willing to drive all the way to Massmechelen Village and my brother came along as well - yes, he likes shopping.
Another thing that I just had to see was the biggest Converse-shoe ever! It was really huge, I expected a big shoe, but it was even bigger. I felt so tiny, haha.
Until the very last moment I had no idea how I wanted my new shoes to look like. So I asked if they had any stencils and there was this one I liked. At first I thought it was a zebra-print, but actually it's a fingerprint. Not mine, that would've been epic, but it's still really cool. On the other shoe I chose for my name - ego! The colors were chosen by the artist, because I had no idea what I wanted.
Enough said, here are a few pictures and as usual you can find all of the pictures on Facebook.
Almost forgot! These sessions are only temporary. The artists are in the Village for only two weekends: the 12th & 13th of May and the 18th & 19th of May from 13.00 till 18.00.

Triumph Inspiration Award 2012

Yesterday was the distribution of the Triumph Inspiration Award. The little show consisted of showing the 5 models selected in front of a jury and a little audience, all presented by Veronique De Kock - our very own ex-Miss Belgium. After the showing, the jury deliberated about who should get which price. There were 5 prices: Price of the Public, the Press Price and then the usual third, second and first place. All of them were cash prices, but the first place had a little extra: a ticket to go to Shangai!

Press Days: Tan-Dem AW12

Press days have been over for about a week now, but I still owe you the last one. It took us quite a while to find this one - thank you google maps - and we got kinda lost. I absolutely have no orientation so I was depending on my fellow bloggers to guide us. In the pooring rain, we finally found it, apparently it was accessible by tram - fail. So yeah, we were soaking wet, at least my feet were, but we still enjoyed the preview of next season's collection. Don't forget to take a look on Facebook for more pictures!

Press Days: Pure AW12

First of May, a little bit of sunshine and a day off from school. Should be fun, do some reading in the garden, catch a little sun of my very white skin - I kinda look like a corpse or so on some pictures - but faith decided otherwise. I'm sitting inside, cleaning my room and blogging. Press days are over now, but I still owe you two posts about visits. Number one is Pure - as read in the title, obviously. I knew them already from last press days, SS12, and I'm very happy I could come along with Shanah again. Don't forget to take a look on my Facebook page and while you're there, hit that like button!

Press Days: Turbulence AW12

This week we visited some press agencies in Brussels, way closer to my little house in the middle of nowhere. First up was Turbulence's virgin press days, so first time ever! Most of their brands were honestly unknown to me, but I loved them! The room was arranged in a simple way, with the racks against the wall. The clothes were mostly Autumn/Winter, but there was a little part more summerish in colors, which I really liked. Enough said, picture time! And don't forget to check out my Facebook page as well :)

Naf Naf Reopening Store

Yesterday was a little private party to celebrate the reopening of the store in Brussels, more precisely in the Rue Neuve. Naf Naf went for a little boudoir-style, with furniture in the store that are used to show the clothes or just as decoration. I've always liked Naf Naf because they have that little girly touch I crave from time to time. The official opening was today, so everybody, rush to the store!
So, at the party, there were a lot of people! And plenty of lovely food, but I didn't snap a picture of that, the clothes were too attractive! Little bonus for me: the fabulous dress I saw at the Media Mania Press Days last winter, was hanging in the store! Yes, I took another picture. It's so pretty, I want to buy it and wear it all the time, even when I'm sleeping. Just to feel like a princess.
Sorry, wandering off, haha. So, the store gave this very feminine with a tad of girly feeling that made me want to  twinkle around like a little fairy. It enchanted me so much I bought the cutest little black dress - didn't own a LBD yet, shame on me. But, enough said, let's take a little look here and on Facebook.

Press Days: Media Mania AW12

Last post about the press days for this week, next week there are some more but that's for next week. So, Mediamania was the last one for that day. To be honest, it was the only one I knew from before, I went to their Spring/Summer press days last winter as well. By the time we got here, our feet were really painful so it took us quite a while to find the courage to walk around. But, we got up our feet and walked around. There were a lot of beautiful things, just like at the other bureaus. Here are some pictures I took, you can find all of them on Facebook.

Press Days: Bestseller AW12

Next in line was Bestseller's AW12, which was in this special building. It had this old and fancy atmosphere, it was pretty cool. Also, we could enter a contest where we had to take an original picture on a bike. The picture was taken by the people from Bestseller and I don't like the one I have, so you won't see it. But I will explain to you what I did and then you just have to use your imagination: the bike was a very bright orange lowrider and the saddle had a backrest, so I decided to get on the bike backwards. I did put my feet on the pedals and held the handlebars, which made it quite difficult to keep my balance, but I managed to stay long enough for the picture! Yet again, more pictures are te be found on Facebook.

Press Days: Oona Welcome Days AW12

Second on the little -ahum- traject was Oona. The welcome days were presented in a huge room which was arranged in a simple way, and I loved it. I wish my room was that big so I could hang my clothes properly and I wouldn't have to open that damn closet everytime I need to change my outfit. So exhausting to open the door, realize you're on the wrong side and squeeze yourself between the closet door and your bed. But that's another topic. Picture time!

Press Days: Listenup AW12

It's that time of the year again! We got to see a little preview of what's coming for Autumn/Winter 2012. I love going to the press days, and being invited is always such an honor, to see what will be in stores. Makes shopping so much easier, haha! For all the press day-posts, I'll post a few pictures here, but you can still find all the pictures on Facebook.
