Forward to the past

As girl who had long hair for the biggest part of her life, you can't stop imagining 
how you'd look with short hair.
I refuse to cut my hair off. Many people admire my hair. I'm just blessed with the most straight hair, that's naturally healthy. Although I dye my hair from the age of 14. My current hair color resembles my natural hair color, a faint red shine is still there. I used to have dark red hair for a long time.

I wanted to try out the 20's waves hairstyle. This is how it all started. My hair almost reaches my waist now, and for this hair style you need to have a short bob. I first put the wave in my hair with a curling iron and pinned my hair away at the back. I was surprised that it actually worked, this was the first time I tried this hair style.
To finish the look I did a dark 20's make-up. My outfit, on other hand, was more 40's meeting current times.
Clashing era's doesn't bother me. I like to experiment with looks and styles.
I received many nice compliments that night. 
Lately I've experimenting with a lot of different hair styles and the waves will surely be used again one day!

I wore: COS lace top, C&A skirt, Hell's Belles bag, H&M lace bra and shoes

" Wake up, before it gets Winter "

"Wake up, before it gets Winter" is a collection of Julie Van den Berghe, a student at Fashion Academy of Ghent. The previous years she already showed to be a talented and promising student. This is her graduate collection of third bachelor. It was my favorite, so i decided to feature it here.
There're several things I like about it. Obviously the amazing color palette of pinks and reds. Sheer blouses in combination with heavy knitting. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but knits are one of my favorite materials.
This collection combines perfect aspects of winter, but also summer. There isn't much difference in the Belgian weather, if u ask me...
The killer shoes and metal leaf are the perfect finishing touches for these ensembles.
See it for yourself.

Moss anyone?

So the latest challenge of Project Blogway is "Kate Moss".
I sure do love her and she's definitely an icon. But when it comes to looks we're two opposites.
I've never been and never will be as skinny as she's, nor will I be blond. Still I admire her nonchalant rock'n'roll meets boho style. And I tried to play it out with this outfit. Skinny jeans is one of her trade marks and a floaty blouse ads a relaxed edge to this look.

Wearing: H&M blouse and pants, Zara bag, I am necklace, C&A sunnies and unknown flats

I also want to thank my readers, thank for taking the time to read my blog! 
I appreciate it very much!

Rock'n'Roll is how we do it

The second challenge of Project Blogway was Rock Chick was another subject that's really close to my heart.
I don't claim to be a rock chick or any other type of girl for that matter, but still it's another image that suits me well. I didn't have to look long for my outfit. I could've made a dozen of different ones for this theme with the clothes for my wardrobe. But I wanted to use my "Balmains" again. I'm not for knock off designs, but couldn't just let to buy these beauties. I got them on ebay and I must say they look pretty good!
The special accessory I was talking about in my previous PB post is one of my boyfriends guitars.
Unlike me he actually plays on it.

H&M top
C&A leggings
Ebay shoes
Pieces scarf
Gibson guitar

Forever 21 Pre-Party Party

Great news for us, Belgian fashion lovers, Forever 21 is coming to our small country.
Two major stores will be opening, first one in Brussels (30 July) and the second one in Antwerp (August).
A big event was organized to celebrate this great news. Lot's of bloggers and press enjoyed a hologram show of the new collection and a great party which ended with a bang on the sounds of Belgian Electropop band Teddiedrum who played a live gig.
This was a party I'll remember for a long time, lot's of nice people, great music and delicious cocktails. 
What more can a girl need for a great night out?! The hologram show was pretty impressive. Glad I had a chance to see it with my own eyes. But pretty hard to catch on camera.
A little video to give you an impression of the night and off course lot's of pictures!

I wore : Zara dress & bag, ebay shoes, Vivienne Westwood bones necklace
