Pimp my Hat!

Dear fair friends,

I’ve been approached with a challenge :

Choose your favorite sports hat on Fanatics and style away !

Well now, I’m not a huge sports fan myself and I’m actually also more a classic-with-a-twist-styler than a comfy-sporty-one so YES it was a challenge 🙂

I accepted on the condition that my selected pieces can be fair!

I’ve chosen a cherry-red hat from the Reds and honestly, there’s no big story here,  I ‘ve just been seduced by the great colour 😉

Now how should I style it?

It’s no surprise that my kinda-classic-styler sub-conscience took over a little..

Maryshoppings’ tips in Antwerp

Hello everyone,

As you know by now, I’m living in Antwerp, Belgium.

It’s the fashion capital of this country where the big-mouth-people live, party and brag about their city. I’m not born here so when the online tourguide Citypath asked me to share my tips in town, I felt so flattered 🙂

Here you can see the results of the shoot with Antwerp as a beautiful view.

You can read my 8 tips in the article over HERE but for my blog-loving friends, I love to add some extra goodies about my favorite neighborhood in Antwerp :

I lived in the South part of the city for almost two years now and I really like a lot of the places there.

* Yes my dear, guilty as charged on the coffee-addict-department, so I know my way around for a good cup of the black gold :

My 2 favorite places on the south part : Revista and Tinsel : they both serve delicious coffee and treats in a cosy atmosphere.

* Coffee, cake, wine, food and even a guest room : Patine

* In for a Sex and the City-moment? Go sipping over here : Sipsreservation needed in the weekend, Josephine’s, they also serve delicious food, and last but not least Bar Zar, a cocktailbar where the interior shows different moods.

* You are a foodie and looking for a personal treatment, stop by Puur Personal Cooking, don’t forget to make an early reservation!

* You are a foodie and looking for great sushi? Go to the lovely temple of Umami

Hope you enjoy Antwerp as much as me!

A sweater and a (Girlie) skirt, really?

Dear Fair ladies,

This week I’d like to present you the result of a styling session I did to prove that sweaters do fit with -in my case- a girlie skirt.

I admired the look from Elena Borden and Elisa Nalin in Elle and what I loved about it was the mixture of nonchalance and sweet chic so I went for it myself…
IMG_0718I started my look…with an ethical sweater from Les Gens de Labas and a Belgian designed skirt from Odette en Ville

IMG_0720Shirt : Ralph Lauren/Jewelry : BIBA/Sweaters : Les Gens de Labas / Skirt : Odette en Ville / Glasses : Dolce & Gabanna

Ethical clothing information

* Les Gens de Labas designes and produces in Belgium with organic material.

They also design jewelry in Morocco in their own workingspace where they are doing job creation for berbers, native inhabitants.

* Odette en Ville designes in Belgium and produces in Portugal

* Unfortunately Ralph Lauren and Dolce & Gabanna scored only E on the Rankabrand-app
