Bal Masqué

Photobucket

You probably have seen this already, but still!!!

I rarely get overwhelmed these days by editorials, there's just so much going on, we get spoiled and forget to appreciate it. But when I saw this one, I was just simply blown away.
It's just everything I stand for, dark, edgy, glamourous, mysterious, a bit disturbing, but still classy.
Who would have thought that in technological times like these going to the basics of fasion photography could be the best solution? Well, I always believed in the power of simple black & white pictures. That's where the source lies, it always will.
I can't even describe how much I love Mert's and Marcus's work, for me, they're really the top.
They always succeed to surprise me.
This editorial just focusses on fashion without bragging with eccentric poses, decorations, or tons of high tech retouching and editing. It is what it is, and that's just magnificent.
Off course the amazing models cast represented by Lara, Freja, Mariacarla, Crystal and Daphne, styled by Carine Roitfeld is a dream come true. Crème de la crème!

And I'm not even talking about the hair and MU, let alone the clothes and accessories. Dying a silent death here. I was just thinking how I shouldn't buy anymore new magazines until I don't read all the ones I already bought... Well, I guess I can make an exception for this French Vogue, right?!

I need to have it!

Neon Spots

Here're the promised pictures from the Hermès "I love my scarf" party that I went to last Thursday. I had a nice time, especially because my friend Nathalie was with me.
She's a little sunshine! A big thanx to her and her bf for providing the pictures ;)

We had an opportunity to take a picture with the famous scarf. I also saw a few fellow bloggers. It's always nice to see people in person, makes this all more real to me.
The party itself was nice, but there's always place for improvement...

This red haired boy (wish I knew his name) practically made my night by telling me I looked magnificent. He did too!

And yes, I'm totally aware of the fact that I look Chinees.

Also debuting this Dolce & Gabbana dress that I totally adore. It needed a special occasion to be worn. And what about my mad neon sunnies?!
Forgive me all this vanity!

I'm also on Lookbook now ;)


I wore Dolce & Gabbana dress, Prada "Postcards" sunnies and H&M shoes.

To new beginnings!

You can definitely say that the summer is all gone now. We just had, what it seems, our last summer day this weekend. Although it's still not too cold, but the rain is here and there's just something in the air, that smell of fall.
For once I'm not regretting the end of summer, as it has not been very pleasant in some ways.
I'm all for new beginnings and yet again, this is one for me.
The start of the college season is not too far away, so all the worries will be about that soon.
Starting all over again has never been easy, but I'm a girl who likes a challenge.
Unfortunately the changes of my private life affect my blogging habits too, so from now on you'll see less outfit posts from me. At least for a while. I hope to figure something out as quick as possible.

Anyway, I can't wait to start wearing my trench coats, that French look, channel that romantic feel. I wish I was there, I miss Paris so much...
Seeing the new episode of Gossip Girl made me all happy. B & S in Paris and Chuck arriving!
These are really the moments that make me forget it all and live their lives.

For another news, I have been invited to the Hermès "J'aime mon carré / I love my scarf" party
in association with ELLE Belgium.
I'm very excited to go! I don't want to miss another one. Last week I had to skip the opening of River Island store 'cause of an illness.
I promise to show you the pictures.

Is anyone else going to be there?

Les Belges

Belgium has got some fashion talent and we're not afraid to show it!

Photobucket

For the first time Flanders and Wallonia decided to join forces during Paris Fashion Week.
Flanders Fashion Institute (FFI) and Wallonie-­Bruxelles Design/Mode (WBDM) collaborated together to show the world a new group of Belgian talent.
From 1st to 5th october fifteen different designers will present their collections to the media and buyers in Les Belges showroom in Paris.

Photobucket

I think this is a wonderful opportunity for young talent to get discovered and make good connections abroad.
I wish them all good luck on their journey!

Here's a small selection of my favorite designers:

Izumi Hongo has just finished her education at the Fashion Academy of Antwerp.
With her collection "Private Painting" she won the Sacha Shoe Award 2010.
She'll launch her own line named " Van Hongo" this october.

Welcome to the dark side

Photobucket

Nothing ever appealed to me as much as the dark mystery of things.
A beauty with a slight edge, that dark side of the soul, which everyone of us carries in them.
There can't be light without darkness. All that we have to do is to find ourselves in it and give it a right place.
Don't be afraid, just join the dark side.
