Seaside

Yesterday I went to Fotofestival at Knokke. There were several exhibitions across town.
The ones I was interested in were Tim Walker and Cecil Beaton.
Knokke lies by the seaside, so we took some pictures.
The weather was so wonderful and I really needed a break from studying.
What a wonderful day it was!

The Queen


Photobucket

This post will be coming a bit late, but still I have the need to share this experience with you.
On the 17th of May I was one of the lucky people, out of 15 000, who saw Lady Gaga perform in Antwerp. This show was definitely one of the best moments of my life! Never I have seen something like this and I have seen quite a lot of concerts before...
The energy in the venue was just electric, people were going crazy. Often Belgian audience is quite hard to play for, they just can't let go that easily. But not this time, everyone bowed on their knees before the Queen. Yes, because that is who she is, The Queen! Not the Queen of pop, she's the Queen of the whole music industry and maybe the world. I know some of you are still giving Madonna that precious place, as much respect as I have for her, she's not who she used to be and so is her music. There's also one big difference between the two of them, Lady Gaga is not afraid to show her human side, behind all that glitter and decadence hides a beautiful human being, who really cares about her fans. Stefani Germanotta, as that is her real name, is not artificial, on the contrary , she's as real as you can get. Madonna on other hand, is a cold hearted machine.

As for the show, Lady Gaga gives it all on stage : emotions, energy, style, an amazing voice, good dance moves, great acting skills, ... you name it, she has it.
This is the show of your dreams, with 15 outfit changes and almost as much decor changes.
Between some of her outfit changes there was a video interlude, each and every one of them blew my mind!
Right before she came up on stage, they played Michael Jackson. Isn't this perfect, the King introducing the Queen?!
The first thing we saw of her was a projection of her shadow as she began singing "Dance In The Dark". When the curtain was lifted the venue just exploded, I have never hear people scream as much!
It really was an unforgettable experience. She will be back in Belgium on the November 22 and so will I. The tickets were sold out immediately, but there're always people who return them or cancel. So if you have the chance to go see her show somewhere, don't hesitate and just do it!

Unfortunately on the same day Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist was in the country to sign his book. I had to miss to because of a project presentation and the concert. But no regrets, Gaga comes first.

The summer is back in town and guess what? I have to study for my finals...
Not a fun way to spend the warm days :(
But on the 16th of June, I'll be a free person, at least for a while.
I'm so excited that I can wear my summer dresses again.
Wearing a winter coat in May is way too strange!

For this outfit I combined a classic look with a rock 'n' roll twist.
Think of Chanel spring 08 meets Brody Dalle.

Wearing: Asos dress, ripped dotted tights, satin flats, C&A heart shaped glasses

These were new sunglasses that I wore for the first time, but just after we took these pictures, they broke. Ok, they were cheap, but something like this has never happened to me before.
I abuse my H&M glasses for about a year and a half and they're still alive.
I was very disappointed, because I really liked them.

Black is the new black

I'm kind of back (=
Sorry for my absence, but I have been busy and extremely sick the last few weeks.
I guess the school pressure got to me, I was exhausted. Happy to feel better now.

Last week I received my wedges that I bought on ebay, finally found what I searched for so long.
I wore them thursday for the first time and they're extremely comfortable!
They're a perfect addition to the black part of my wardrobe. I love wedges, there's something futuristic about them.

Wearing: Barbara Bui top, H&M skirt & leggings, Zara blazer, Ebay wedges

This studded Barbara Bui top if one of my favorite pieces. It's made from exquisite wool and cut in asymmetric lines. I have the same one in grey. They're just perfect basic pieces, I wear them a lot.

Yesterday I was on the hunt for a yellow leopard dress at H&M. At first I saw it on the website,
thursday I saw it hanging in the stores window, but all the stores were closed that day.
Both of the H&M's in Ghent had them hanging in the windows, but they were already sold out.
Belgian people have never been crazy about yellow/pink leopard print, but I guess the low price of 19,95 euro's made the people think different. Both dresses in the windows were reserved too.
I never experienced something like this in H&M... It left me frustrated, so i decided to go to Antwerp today. Same story there, dresses are sold out and every store has them in their window display. I didn't asked if these were taken too, but just bought the grey/black version with zebra stripes. Which is pretty nice too :)
I even like it more, it looks more elegant. Which one do you prefer?

Wish I found the earrings the model is wearing too!

Alannah Hill f/w 2010

These are the campagne images of Sydney based designer Alannah Hill.
Absolutely in love with the colors and clothes, not to speak about the gorgeous flowers!
I love the mix between Blair Waldorf and Alice in Wonderland.
(Yes, expect me to mention Alice a lot)
