Shirkers are red, Workers are blue. I’m loving this Lee sweater and so will you!

Last season, I was contemplating buying the famous Filles à Papa Courage sweater but I ended up not to. Too expensive? Too mainstream? Too lazy to go to the store? Whatever it was, I stopped thinking about it and thus stopped the wanting it. But then out of the blue – pun intendedLee turns 125 and Filles à Papa gets to make a capsule collection for the jeans brand. Helloooo indigo sweater, wanna come to mama!? That one, I couldn’t get off my mind. Not too pricy! Totally my colour! And above all: very eager to find this beauty. The search started bumpy but all of a sudden I remembered this Lee pop-up in Brussels! Called up my girl T and headed over as soon as we could. I’ve been workin’ this beauty ever since ;-)

 

Weekend Blog Awards (video)

Whoa, November has been busy up until now. Last week we had the press days in Antwerp, the H&M x Alexander Wang launch and most importantly the Weekend Blog Awards, hosted by Knack Weekend. I was nominated in the Fashion Category but I had some strong competitors so I knew my chances weren’t that high. Thank you for the votes nonetheless but I think the actual winners really deserved this one. Both Ruth and Nathaliegorgeous and above all hilarious bloggers behind The Merrymakers – have been managing a busy PR life and maintaining this cool blog, it was about time they got some credit for it!

My video accomplice Winny Man was there to capture every moment and yet again… she did an amazing job! THANK YOU WINNY <3

Work hard in silence. Let succes be your noise – Frank Ocean

I’ve never been one to brag about things I’ve achieved, I hardly dare to talk about it. Luckily, I have some friends and my parents that do that for me. They’re a real life conversation starter when it comes to my blog and I thank them for that. Normally, I’m very outgoing but I’m quite the opposite blogwise. Maybe it’s because people still don’t understand the blogosphere up to this day?

So I work hard in silence and I get a pat on the back from time to time. For example, a sweet colleague pinned a recent article about my Sacha collaboration up on the corkboard at work. I was surprised & quite happy to see that even my colleagues, who have nothing to do with the fashion part of my life, were proud of what I’d achieved up to this day. At least, most of them. Sadly, I stumbled upon the same article that had been ‘vandalized‘. Okay, quite the strong vocabulary… I ended up being a mix between Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dalí and Jack Sparrow. Very mature, indeed. Shall I print out every feature and let them sweat a bit? ;-)
