In love with the pants

Hiiiii there! Another very quick post to let you all know that I passed my exams and I don't have to redo do any of them in August! Yay for me ^^ Now, those of you who have me as a friend on Facebook might have gotten sick of this picture already. It was taken about 2 months ago because I needed a picture for my school blog to put next to my editorial about John Galliano. I had taken some more pics so I thought I'd share them with you, together with the exciting news!

Now, let's enjoy the sun and the parties for about 3 months, starting with tonight: the F21 party!

I'm wearing harem pants by Stills, white tee by H&M and red heels by Steve Madden!

Here's another post about the fashion show I attented like two weeks ago in Antwerp. You have no idea how many pictures I still have to show you guys. I've actually got to shower and then hurry up to the boyfriend to wake him up - we're going shopping for him, yaaay! So here's a quickie: the people at the party! I'm was quite thrilled...

Antwerp fashion show: the hair

Hey guys! My exams are officially over and now I have the time to blog normally again ^^

Last weekend I got invited to go to the fashion show of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. It was held in a big hangar beside the docks. All pretty fashion people aside, there was also a backstage full of pretty collections and models, of course! Luckily the academy teamed up with L'Oréal Professionel Coiffure and Yves Saint Laurent make-up to give us, fashion lovers, an amazing result. Below some of the pictures involving the different hair styles and a bit of the make-up. Be sure to come back, because there are two more posts coming up about this event!

Loved the simplicity of the girls their hair, but yet some of them got a special touch like the two pictures above. I'd like to have a bun like theirs too :( The boys got to go all wild with their wax and gels for a very sexy, yet simple look. Anywats, I loved being in a place surrounded by fashion! Thanks to Sarah and L'Oréal, I had an amazing time!

Sometimes fantasy is better than reality

Exactly two months ago, I helped out Celine, a friend, for her final project for school. She has been studying graphic design and chose advertising as her final year. Love her choice and loved to help of course! She first asked me to style her models but then she said who the photographer, which I knew already, would be and suddenly I was a model as well! I could style my own outfit and I gave a few tips on the other ones. And then the day came where we all went to Sint-Lukas, the famous art school in Brussels, to shoot. Celine's first idea included the - not so yummy for my taste - Carpe Diem drinks. We would each have a different flavor, depending on our mood. This all changed into the famous game 'The Sims'. In this ad it's all about fantasy and reality. I'm the student who's fed up with studying - haha, I really am at the moment - and wants to go on holiday, which is my fantasy. Ken and Tiffany represent the reality of a couple, which is constantly fighting. But you can see their fantasy on the door behind them! We had a blast shooting their pictures and mine of course ^^

You can see the result, shot by Kaat Vandenbroeck, below. The making of pictures were shot by Jana Keppens. Also a big thanks to our darling Lori Verbeckt for our make-up and being so adorable! I thank Celine for letting me help her and I hope I was a great help for her too ;)

And here's the result:

High tea party

Hey you! I'm so sorry, but I'm running late on a lot of blog posts! I've got so many things to share with you guys. This post is an outfit of about 2 or 3 (?) weeks ago at the launch of Tiany's Kirilove collection for Vero Moda, which I've told you about here. As you may have seen on the pictures, there were a lot of cupcakes and other delicious stuff that you'd normally eat with a tea in hand. Yes, you guessed it right, it was a high tea party. So I thought I'd dress 'up' and I did: I wore a vintage skirt from my aunt with an FCUK top. My Pippin boots got to go out for the first time and of course the Belgian weather wasn't all that great so I had to put on something more: a short jeans jacket!

Do it like a dude at H&M Man

Dear boys, we'll never forgive you for taking away our beautiful COS store, but hey... I guess you deserve at least one shop in the busy shopping street ;)! Yes, you guessed (and read) it right: there is a new store in la Rue neuve and it's not just any store. It's the 5th H&M store in the street and it's dedicated to all the men. I went to the opening to snap some shots as a preview, for those of you who haven't been there yet. The shop's design is still intact (COS did a great job) and that's what makes this a wonderful but peaceful place for you boys to look around and spend your money. It has three floors filled with t-shirts, jeans, shorts, hats, sunglasses, underwear,... and so on and so on! They also had  a range of evening clothes such as suits and a lot of ties! It's a definite must-go for guys who like H&M and don't really spend too much money on clothes.
