We were just testing my bf's new camera here.
Wearing one of my "school" outfits. Most of the time I just wear something simple and comfortable and upgrade it with some accessories. This is one of my favorite sweaters.
Love the loose knit & the colors.
Unfortunately it wears out pretty fast, so no I have some holes in it.
These are busy times now as I have plenty of school work and all these dead lines.
Just keep on pushing the boundaries. Exams aren't far away either.
Can't wait for the summer, really in need of some vacation.

The Opulence

I'm debuting my Jeremy Scott blouse from the f/w 2008 collection called The Opulence.
I love Jeremy's humor fashion and this collection was one of my favorites.
This blouse was waiting to be worn for a few months. But it was a bit too cold to wear it. I got it for my birthday from my boyfriend.
Absolutely adore it, green is my favorite color too.
Wish I could find more pieces from this collection. The earrings were pretty incredible too.

Tomorrow I'll be going to a festival called Groezrock. Can't wait, as I'll see one of my favorite bands, AFI. Haven't seen them play before. This is also the first festival of the year for me. And they're promising good weather.
What else do you need to have a great weekend?
Expect the pics soon.

School has just started again and things have been a bit hectic around here, so I've been missing out on the blogging field... But back now.

This sunday I visited the biggest European floral exhibition, called the Floraliën.
It took place in Ghent.
The venue of the exhibition was huge, I've never seen so much beautiful flowers in my life.
The ideas some designers came up with were incredible. This was one big inspirational trip for me.
It really stunned me how creative designers were with all sorts of plants, flowers, trees, ...
I really got an Alice In Wonderland feel there.
Off course this was the perfect occasion to debut the famous H&M rose jacket from the Garden Collection. This was definitely one of best buys I ever made!

This ball of flowers was huge, and so impressive. Didn't even look real.
Must have been a lot of work to put together something impeccably symmetric.

This tree in a box was the most surreal thing of the venue. It looked like a tree in a mist, which reminded me a lot of Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow".
I bet Veronique Branquinho, knowing her obsession with trees, would have liked it too.

Alice In Wonderland

I postponed going to the movies to see Alice such a long time, because I heard that many friends were disappointed by it. I can't say I was too, but I felt that something was definitely missing.
Maybe it was too much Disney and the movie lost on the Burton spirit?
I did expect it to be more outrageous, that's for sure.
It's still pretty good, though...

What are your thoughts on the movie?

Recently I found this Alice inspired shoot from Italian Vogue from 2008.
I especially liked it because it features Amanda Seyfried as Alice.
Isn't she just born to be her?
I'm a big fan of her, this girl has this amazing charm, beauty and intelligence.
She's also a pretty good singer
I wish it was her who played Alice in the Burton movie.

On other hand, life has just proved, yet again, that's not a fairy tale.

This morning I missed out on the biggest sale ever. The 1 year anniversary of The Outnet.

Everything was going for 1£. Crazy!!
Off course I wasn't lucky. The server was stuck all the time and by the time I got in, there wasn't much left. And even then you couldn't load the item into your basket.
When I saw that they also sold the two Rick Owens leather jackets, I was dreaming about for so long, I nearly started crying of disappointment.
Silly right?
But the girls who also can't afford expensive stuff will understand.
For ones there I hoped to win something, I never win something :(
They sold more than 800 pieces...

I hope you all have a nice weekend!

This weekend I finally got the chance to enjoy the great weather.
A little bit of sun always cheers me up.
I maybe don't look like a sunny person, but I definitely am one.
*Speaking about shameless self-promotion*

Although it's sunny, I'm still wearing tons of clothes.
Mostly because I used to live in a country with very high temperatures.
Seeing all this people already wearing shorts and t-shirts gets me shiver.
