Si tu as un rêve…

Si tu as un rêve, tu dois le protéger. Tu verras que les gens incapables d’y arriver feront tout pour te décourager. Si tu veux vraiment quelque chose, t’as qu’à te battre, point-barre.

When I first spotted this Mya Bay bangle bracelet around Dogs & Dresses‘ wrist, I knew… I had to have it! ‘Si tu as un rêve, tu dois le protéger et te battre‘ is what it says, an excerpt of a quote in The Pursuit of Happiness (the 2006 Will & Jaden Smith movie). As I probably told you all a thousand times before, I’ve always been one to follow my dreams and do whatever to reach my goals. Okay, not whatever but you get the point, right? You can probably imagine how happy I was to receive the bracelet as an early Christmas gift! I’ve been wearing it ever since and I doubt it’ll ever leave my wrist.

Thank you so much Mya Bay & E. ^^

Make me your Aphrodite. Make me your one and only but don’t make me your enemy

I’ve never been one to hide I have roots outside of Belgium but before I can even spell ‘I’m Greek‘, my name gives it away already. Having a name like this, has made various scenarios come to life. Questions like ‘Isn’t that a Goddess?‘, ‘Is Zeus your dad?‘ or ‘With an F or PH?’ have been asked repeatedly. But let me tell you this: I love my name! Jokes or no jokes, I honestly couldn’t care less. I can’t imagine my life without this name. And yes, as most girls, I have wondered about how I would name my children and I definitely would want them to have a Greek name. I even got two names in mind!

Besides having Afrodite as my name, I now get to sport it around in everyday life… on a sweater! This pretty cool piece is O’Rèn, a Belgian brand by two talented fellas from my neighbourhood. I was so excited about the whole Olympus collection and I freaked out when I saw that my name was used too! Thank you boys, I can’t wait for the Jeux de Mots collection!

Press days – stock sales – the holidays. That’s mostly how it goes at the end of the year, say around November. I have enjoyed the first two and I bet that last one will be splendid as well. I scored some designer stuff at the ICON stocksale last weekend. A pair of Golden Goose sneaker, what whaaat. I always hated the brand and the looks people tried to pull off with the shoes. I won’t say I’ll be able to put together the perfect outfit but I have come to appreciate the sneakers in a different way. So, aren’t you curious to see how I’m going to style them? That makes two of us, because I have NO freaking clue! Luckily, I do have this Isabel Marant Étoile top I also managed to take home with me. A simple blue top tucked in my high waist jeans on one side and a pair of ankle boots, perfect look for a night out with the girls – or maybe that one boy ;-)?
