Fashion News // Alexander Wang For H&M Women's Lookbook

AlexanderWangHMCollage
There have been a lot of little peeks and previews, but the long awaited lookbook from Alexander Wang for H&M is finally here! The collection is just what we're used to of Mr. Wang: lots of neutral colors (black, grey and a touch of white here and there), clean silhouettes and a sporty chic vibe.

Even though the collection isn't my thing completely, I did see some items that I like; the dress on the right in the picture above, the baggy leather pants and the black peeptoe ankle boots. The collection is set to launch on 6 november. I was lucky enough to be invited to the presale event the day before, which is also my birthday, yay! So, I'm hoping to get my hands on at least one of the items on my wishlist -- now all I have to do is wait for H&M to announce the pricetags of the items. 

What do you think about Alexander Wang for H&M? Will you be waiting in line?

Outfit // Transition

Transition10
We used to have some type of Indian summer in Belgium, but it looks like fall is claming territory more and more for the past couple of days. This transition is making me kinda moody, tired, restless and so on; it's always a period that I go through during this time of the year. Anyone else who's experiencing the same thing?

The same transition has been noticeable in my closet: I've - slowly, but surely -  been collecting new items which are suitable for fall and winter. This knitted vest is one of them and I've been living it it for the past two weeks. It's just so warm and cozy, I love it. Fall and winter clothes never used to be my thing; they always made me feel trapped and claustrophobic in a way. But lately, I've been seeing some items that I like here and there so who knows...

On my lips is MAC's Heroine, which I thought was perfect to complete this look. I hope I don't look too goth now -- even though I used to have such a phase in highschool, hehe.

Review // MAC The Matte Lip 'Damn Glamorous' & 'Trust In Red'

MACDamnGlamorous2
Yes, another red lipstick to review. Oh, and it's matte - again. Those who know me know that I can't go without popping matte lips, preferably red. So when I found out that MAC was launching a limited edition collection of matte lipsticks - aka The Matte Lip - and that there was a gorgeous red color among them, I caved and bought it. 

The lipstick is called Damn Glamorous (what's in a name?) and is described by MAC as a "bright pink red" color. I also purchased the matching lip pencil, which is called Trust In Red. I always get both lipsticks and lip pencils: when applying my lipstick, I start by contouring and 'coloring' my lips with the lip pencil first and then apply the lipstick over it. It will last all day long, I promise you. 

Curious to if Damn Glamorous really is that damn glamorous?

New // Sam Edelman 'Chester' Boots

SamEdelmanChester1 
Remember when I went to the Sam Edelman event in Antwerp a while ago? I had the amazing opportunity to meet the designer himself - such a charming fella - and was also told that I could pick a pair from the Fall / Winter 2014 collection afterwards. So, not too long ago, I went to the Gimpex showroom to pick out my favorite pair and then had to wait until they arrived in my size.

I received an email from the ever so sweet ladies at UPR that my shoes finally arrived at their agency and, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I went to pick them up yesterday. Tadaaa! I decided to go for the Chester boots. Black ankle boots, part leather / part suède, a thick golden chain on the back (a trend I already wrote about here); I absolutely love them. I have slowly been updating my closet, making it fall and winter proof, and these booties are a perfect addition. 

What do you think about them?
