Bedroom and lingerie

As you might already know we've been renovating for quite some time now and I'm happy that the whole house is starting to take shape. You have seen some bits and pieces from the living room already here and now I'm happy to finally show our almost finished bedroom. 
In here we went for a bit of a vintage/Victorian feel of a boudoir, all is missing is a crystal chandelier to complete the picture. I'm very happy with how it turned out, very suitable for our 'darker' personalities. Because we have an almost black shade of wallpaper we decided to brighten things up with a white wardrobe and lamps. The wardrobe is an essential part of every bloggers life, I guess. For now we have just one to split with my boyfriend and off course he's losing, space wise, to me. We'll be needing a second one, when the other room is finished too. I wasn't kidding when I said I almost need a separate wardrobe for my faux fur coats. 

Furniture wise our bed and wardrobe are from Ikea and my vanity table and chair are vintage. I think vanity tables are so hard to come by these days, I don' think European woman overall are that vain to have this piece of furniture in the house or everyone has the same white one from Ikea.
Ikea is off course is great and I love it, but if you want to bring some personality to your interior, I think it's better to mix old and new.

The reason for all this bedroom talk (pun intended) is that I recently got approached by Wolford to get to know their collection. As you might know Wolford is most known for their incredible stockings and nylons. I'm myself quite a tights lover, but decided to get to know the other side of the brand which is lingerie. I'm sure some of you know the time in life when you're forced to by cheap ass lingerie, because you rather use your money for anything else, but when you do grow to a certain age, you start to invest in quality lingerie. I'm one of these people. Luckily my humble B cup doesn't need much support, so I can still wear pretty much anything, but once you sway for better quality it's hard to go back.
I was still in need of a skin color set, so I first went to the Brussels store to have a look at the models they had, to touch and to try it on. I'm incredibly happy with the tulle set I got. The bra is pretty basic, but because of tulle material and velvety details it has such a luxurious feel to it. I'm pretty smitten with it and the bf doesn't mind it either ;)

White dress and Kuilted bag

The forever absent blogger returns again, this time my laptop was out of use and besides that still very busy at work and with our renovations. Adult life is hard, fact.
So I at last managed to take some new pictures and it might appear that I'm lying the whole time and just on holiday somewhere in Italy (never been, insert sad face). The pictures are just taken around the corner of our house on our way out to dinner and the light of the setting sun was just wonderful. I'm actually quiet happy with how they turned out and I love my new dress from, I think this is a great example of how an affordable piece can still be well manufactured. The fabric is really sturdy, so you have this poofy effect it's suppose to have, without it hanging around you as a deflated balloon. Actually I just went into a Maje store recently, as they're famous of using this type of fabric, and the dresses they had there were the same quality for x10 higher price. Score!

In other news, I'm not a month back from holiday, but already dying for another one. The next vacation is in November for me, still a long time to go, but we'll be going to Mexico. Muchos excited!

Wearing: c/o SheIn dress, New Look sandals, Asos sunnies, Karl Lagerfeld Kuilted bag.

P.S. I recently went to see Magic Mike XXL with my baes Annebeth and Naomi and I rarely wanted to marry the screen as much as I did during the movie. Oh, my, this was everything and you should go and see it! Also love the soundrtack, tunes on repeat.
