Do it like a dude: Basics in the bag

Here I am with another post for you guys. This time I wanted to show you what I think is essential to put into your rucksack, satchel or any kind of bag you like, of course.

Smell like you mean it: If there’s one pet peeve we all have it’s smelly people. Some don’t even realise they need something to help them, perfume or deodorant in human language ^^ The Wood perfume by Dsquared is really good and I recommend them to you. I wanted to put the Armani Black Code first, but that would have been a bit cliché. As for a deodorant, you can choose any kind you like, as long as you just put on one! :-D Oh and a girl’s pet peeve is definitely a stinky breath and in my case you could use a pack of Trident Cinnamon gum, yummmyyy!

Go classic: The nautical stripes should be in every guy’s closet, no doubt. Pair it with some tortoise wayfarers and you’ll be a hottie in no time! Haha, just kidding, you have to do more than that! For example: pick your girl up on time. In order to do so, wear a simple Casio watch: easy to read and good on everyone’s arm. Some are also into bow ties lately – raises her hand – so it can’t be missing in your bag full of basics. Okay, I’d settle for a normal tie as well. You guys are so picky!

Invest: Do not only invest in quality clothing but also in gadgets like a DSLR, a good phone and a tablet, preferably an iPad (said the Apple fan girl). I know you guys go for handy and not pretty but do consider the Pantone cases for both iPad and iPhone. They come in every color and they’re hip and cool and… Well, all the things a guy wants to be these days!

Hotspots to come

doub magazine, garage berlin, vintage, fashion per kilo

I’ve been bombarding you with Brussels hotspots every time and sadly that’s all I have to offer for the moment. I thought I’d spare you a trip to Bruselas and just give you a hint on what’s coming up: both on the blog and in DOUB Magazine (the magazine I’m making with a classmate/friend of mine: Jilke). Just a few more tips: foreign, quality, gadgets, yummy and original. Enough for now? Haha, wait until you see them and judge for yourself.

Happy wednesday & enjoy the new episode of New Girl, I know I will ^^

P.S. Also follow DOUB on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated!

Every cloud has a silver lining and this jacket is literally it! It can make any outfit a smashing one in just 5 seconds. I wore it to the first showroom I visited for the Antwerp press days and even though the school’s chairs ripped my dotted tights that day, people still complimented me on my outfit, the jacket in particular. Another outfit I put together with my favorite H&M Trend jacket, was the one I wore on a dinner date with Kim and Gilles in Brussels. Although I had literally put on my clothes in only two minutes - I told you I wasn’t ready Gilles :p – I managed to look decent and for my own sake: comfortable and confident! So, the idiom is true: this jacket brings out the optimistic Afrodite! I know you’ve seen the look before, when I asked you to vote for me but since I still had these pics, I had to make an outfit post, just because!

I’m wearing: Vintage hat – Persol sunnies (also vintage, from my cousin ^^) – H&M Trend silver jacket – Vintage black shirt – H&M Leggings – Isabel Marant Willow sneakers – MBMJ Bag (cousin’s)

Have a happy tuesday ^^
