There has been a study on the human behavior regarding our copying actions. We unconsciously copy someone’s every move. In fashion, we do exactly the same thing. I, for example, look at blogs for some inspiration so that I can “copy” it in my own way. I get inspired and it gives me ideas on what to wear or which outfits to make with my existing closet – instead of throwing everything out and shop for an entire new wardrobe! This phenomenon also occurs with men, even though they think they’re the strongest gender and can resist pretty much everthing. Well boys, think again… I happen to know you’re in need of some inspiration! So I looked up a few inspiring pictures and discovered a lot of cool (streetstyle) blogs which can please both men and women. Take a look and clicky clicky on the links below!

Unbelievably insane

 

You saw my link on Facebook or Twitter, clicked on it, saw an awesome layout and scrolled down. You thought by yourself: unbelievably insane… What exactly? You kept on scrolling. The pictures seemed pretty: the lights, the background, maybe even the person in it and her clothes. In that case: you hyped this look. But the question remains: What is unbelievably insane? I’ll tell you:

  1. The Smets Premium Store is! If there’s one hotspot all the best designers hang out, it’s Smets! Who can you run into? Well, I saw a glimpse of Proenza, Alexander Wang, Manolo and so on and so forth. Yes, they’re almost all there! But not without the price tag, of course!
  2. Isabel Marant sneakers are! They were on my wish list and my wish came true! I had put them on already. As you can see on the pictures: these aren’t mine, but they’re my sister’s second pair. Yes, indeed, I just said second! They’re really comfortable, easy to walk on, easy to combine! I don’t even mind the stares or the questions: what’s that yellow thingy? I love them and there’s no one who can change that!
  3. The fact my sister’s gone! It’s actually more unbelievable than it is insane. Maybe in her case it might be: being away for at least 3 months. Living on your own, finding a job in a country you don’t know, where you don’t speak their language and where they’re too lazy to speak English. Yes, my sister is crazy! And I have to be honest: I already miss her…
  4. The Topshop jewellery collection is! I’ll be going to London this weekend and I have a few things I’ll be looking for: shirts, collars in every possible way, a bag and statement jewellery of course! I’m craving a lot of long earrings and big chunky necklaces lately
  5. Making a magazine is… I was really excited about making one. I think I still am, I’m not sure. There’s a lot coming towards me at school and it seems I can’t really finish all of it! We’ll have to see, I guess!

Like the pictures? Gilles took them at the Smets opening! Thanks ;-)

Hey shorties, it’s my birthday!

We’re not going to party like it’s my birthday, sorry… I’m just going to have dinner with friends and maybe drinks afterwards. What we are going to do is laugh at this picture! How cute, funny and not to forget: awesome was I? I’ve got a few pictures with this face expression but I thought one would be enough!
