Pin me up

Me again! I'm having vacation, aka the time of my life.
I just spend the weekend at Graspop, one of the biggest metal festivals of Europe.
Thanx to a great opportunity I will be going to Werchter too. But more about this later.
Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough the two first days, so I didn't risk to take my camera with me.
On the third day I was just plain lazy.
I'll probably take my camera with me this weekend, so I can show u some pictures.

But about something else now. I'm a participant in a new Belgian bloggers initiative called "Project Blogway".
Each week the bloggers take outfit pictures around a chosen theme.
The first theme of the contest was the 50s.
I was very glad with the chosen theme, because the 50s are one of my favorite decades.
And nothing let's u feel as feminine as pin-up look.
I know some of you have seen a few pictures I send in already, but I want to show u some more.
Because I had so much fun shooting this look. I just had to wear my favorite leopard print for this outfit!
It was actually quiet funny, because it was shot in between two rainfalls. And we were kind of waiting for the rain to stop to take the pictures. Weather is kind of unpredictable here.

Wearing: Zara dress, H&M shoes and bag, Etam belt

If you liked my outfit, please vote for me at"Project Blogway"in the left sidebar.
The next theme is Rock Chick and I can't wait to shoot that one. I'm going to have a special accessory for that outfit ;)

On dark shades

I'm finally free of my exams and studying, just can't believe it!
So, this weekend was one to celebrate it.
Saturday we went to the fashion show of the Antwerp Fashion Academy.
It was inspiring, as always. Afterwards we went to the after party at Ra, the place was packed with the most fashionable people. We soon moved the party to a gay club where we danced till the sun came up.
I enjoyed this night so much, being with your friends and care free, even when u're dead tired.

And again I chose black that night, continuing my pirate theme, I guess :)

I wore : Asos unitard, InWear mesh, Lipsy jacket, Sacha boots & H&M necklace

In time of exams one doesn't always find times to relax, but I made it obligatory.
No more studying till I drop or not seeing friends for weeks. 
So yesterday, after just having four hours of sleep that night, I met with my best friend. 
We always end up doing the same, having lunch, shop, take pictures and off course chatting.
Always having a nice time.
Afterwards me and my boy went out for dinner and a movie. 
We finally watched the new Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides
Well, you maybe already see it coming... I felt inspired by the pirate theme. 
Though I didn't went for full on pirate gear, I had the idea in the back of my head while choosing.
I call this look Pirate-Chique :)
Off course this was the perfect opportunity to wear my new boots too. I like the fact that it's a overall black look, while the previous one was white. I'm all about contrasts, I guess...
I must admit that I loved the movie. Witty Johnny Depp just keeps on surprising and the beautiful Penelope is a nice addition! And you've got to love Gemma Ward as the evil mermaid!!!
Despite the tiredness and the exam of that day, I had a nice time.

The boots are proper pirate material. I officially call them "jingle bells"

I just love the lace of the dress

Wearing: Manigance jacket, Zara dress, Ken bag, Sacha boot and Fashionology earrings

How far is Olymp?

This weekend has been hot again. Another opportunity to work on my tan.
I went from vampire like white skin, to olive in just two months. Thanks to an early trip to Tunisia and the remarkably good weather in Belgium afterwards. It's still quiet unusual to see myself in a mirror or on pictures and not looking pale after all those years. Having my tan is like going back to my roots, my native country is famous for it's hot weather. So I always had sun kissed skin in childhood.

So, what's there to wear on hot summer day when u already have a tan. White!
I rarely wear white and don't have a lot of white items in my wardrobe. 
For this outfit I was inspired by Greece, country that I love very much. And more specific by Greek mythology.
What woman doesn't want to be a Goddess ones in a while? So I just went for it, well at least tried :)
I bought this tunic last year from H&M Against Aids collection. But the weather wasn't that good anymore and I lacked a tan. So yesterday was the first time I wore it. 
I combined it with my most favorite sandals, which are very Greek-like, and silver jewelry I bought in Tunisia.
I maid little braids on the side of my head and pinned across the back of my head to finish the look.
I kept my make-up in gold shades for a more natural effect. Avoiding black eyeliner is a big task for me, but I succeeded.

Wearing: Tunic from H&M Against Aids collection, vintage Cosci bag, silver jewelry from Tunisia

In other news

The time of finals is here again. I just had my first one yesterday and I think it went ok.
Afterwards I met with my best friend for lunch and some shopping. On the to buy list were the boots from Sacha   that I've seen last week while in Antwerp. I fell in love with them, but hadn't had the time to try them on. Gladly they had them in Ghent too. 
While in the store I bumped into the Belgian male model, Cesar Casier. It's a small world when u live in Belgium.
I looked for such boots for a long time. They're not classical biker boots, but do come close to them. Can't wait to wear them, I have already many different outfits planned in my head.
The boots make noise too, thanks to all the metal details on them. They're like wearing jingle bells :)

I have a confession to make here, I'm a major accessories addict. I have ton's of them lying and hanging around or stored in boxes.Unfortunately I don't have enough space to put all of them on display, so I forget about some of them for a long time.But still...
These are some of my new finds. The first four from the left are from I Am, the dreamcatcher on the right is from H&M. I'm proud of myself because I managed to wear three out of five necklaces already :)

I just love the feathers on this necklace

I've been looking for such a coin necklace for ages, but the ones I found were never good enough.
Well, this one was an ugly duckling itself, additional to this necklace was some beige layered laces that ruined the whole thing. No wander a lot of the necklaces were hanging in the sale section.
I just removed the laces et voila! 
I added a crystal hanger from Monet & Co ,that I recently bought too, to it
By the way, it Napoleon on the coins.

I always love to read and try to do so often. I mostly read while on my way to college, on the train.
Taking a break from the True Blood series I started to read the autobiography of Slash, that I borrowed from my boyfriend. I love to read biographies and this one is very well written, easy to read and really funny.
Yesterday, while shopping I found the book about the band Jane's Addiction. It was laying in the sale rack of the Fnac for just three euro's. I couldn't let it there for such a price and started reading straight away on the train.
