Detail // Marni Wedges

With the news of the Marni for H&M-collaboration flooding the Internet this morning, I suddenly remembered that these Marni-wedges are hidden somewhere in my closet.

I found these wedges in Maastricht at a 70 %-discount, but I must admit that they are quite painful. These are the type of shoes that make your feet feel as if they've been run over by a truck or something, but are way too special / fascinating not to wear. I always get tons of looks and compliments when I'm wearing these and I'm already thinking about when I can wear them again. Lets just pray that it won't snow any time soon!

What do you think about the Marni and H&M-collaboration?
You can see a sneak peek-video HERE. I literally can not wait to see the entire collection

Wanted // Burberry Silver Metallic Pants

While shopping this weekend, I spotted these pants by Burberry and I instantly fell in love with them. Now, € 750 for a pair of trousers is quite a lot, but they've been stuck in my head ever since I saw them and I already started a piggy bank to save the money.

I'll probably get tons of weird looks wearing them, but I've already brainstormed on how to wear them. 
I think one of my gazillion leather jackets and my leather peep toe booties will do the trick.

What do you think?
I really wanted to show you these pants and know your thoughts on them. :)

Beauty // Cat Eyes

If you follow my blog on a regular basis, you should know that I rarely blog about beauty. Why? Because I hardly wear make up and I'm not very creative when it comes to powdering my nose.

I was willing to make an exception for this post, since eyeliner cat eyes are my signature look when I go out or go to events. I finish the look with some red lipstick and voilà, I am ready to go. Now, applying eyeliner is not the easiest thing to do. It took me months before I could apply it somewhat decent.

While checking one of my favorite blogs - Belmodo.tv - I stumbled upon an amazing and very easy tutorial to create the 'Cat Eyes'-look. Do you want to know how to do it?
Click below to see the tutorial I took inspiration from and to see pictures of me doing the same.

P.S.: Excusez-moi for the blurry pictures, but I took them with the Photoboot application on my Macbook.

P.P.S.: Yes, I only have one 'eyelinered' eye in the picture above, since I took pictures while fancying the other one.

So, what do you think?
Worth trying or still too difficult?

Event // Opening UGG-store @ Maasmechelen Village

I finished my internship yesterday and is there any better way than to celebrate that with a fashion event? I think not! Yesterday, I got invited to the opening of the UGG-store at Maasmechelen Village a.k.a. the outlet shopping walhalla in my home town. Most events I get invited to involve a one hour drive (at the least), so whenever I get invited by Maasmechelen Village, I try my very best to be there.

When I arrived there at 4 p.m., I saw a huge line of people waiting outside. Since we were considered 'press', we got to enter the store immediately. I also apologize to the woman complaining that we got to enter first: Sorry, ma'am!

While talking with some other bloggers, thinking I would have tons of time to take pictures, they let in the first customers. I have never experienced something like that in my life. Women, men, boys and girls were all pushing each other to get their pair of UGGs first. I saw a couple of poor guys holding 6 or 7 boxes, while their ladies were running all over the store searching for more furry goodies. I almost got run over a couple of times, which made taking decent pictures quite impossible. So I decided to show you some pictures of the total chaos going on in the store.

The credits for the other (decent) pictures go to Maasmechelen Village (click HERE to see all images).

The UGG-store offers a big choice of shoes and accessories for women, men and children.
You get a 30 % discount on the original price. Not too bad, right?
Interested? You'd better hurry! The UGG-store is opened 'till March 2012.

I'd like to thank Oona and Maasmechelen Village for having me and for always making me feel so welcome.

P.S.: That's one smiley me in the last picture. Can you imagine the look (and smile) on my face when I was told that I got to choose a pair of UGGs to keep and try them out? Those who follow me on Twitter already got a sneak peek of the pair I've chosen. For those who don't have Twitter ... I will show you my choice ASAP and will also tell you how I feel about them. :)

Feature // Styletoday.nl

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a party at Maasmechelen Village to celebrate the fact that they are providing my little home town with some fashionable stores for 10 years now. I got snapped by the Style Today-crew, but totally forgot about it. Thank you, Valerie, for letting me know!

So, that's me on the right and I was wearing my sequined blazer by Maje, a white tank top from H&M, a bag by Chanel and some H&M-pants and New Look-pumps which (obviously) aren't visible on the picture.

My internship will end this Thursday and I promise you that I'll be more than back then!

Have a nice weekend, y'all!

Event // Customisez-Moi: Backstage + Show

Last Friday, I took a break from all the preparations for my internship and went to Brussels for the Customisez-Moi fashion show. I had a great time hanging out with some fellow bloggers / friends whom I hadn't seen for a very long time.

Remember when I told you about a collaboration for Coca Cola Light? Well, I'll tell you more about it once I get all the details myself, but this event had something to do with it. Customisez-Moi offers young and upcoming designers the chance to show their talent and designs. Besides the main collection, some designers also designed different silhouettes with all kinds of Coca Cola Light-materials.

We got the chance to go backstage and preview the Coca Cola Light-collection and also got some front row seats at the fashion show. Backstage pictures are always fun and front row seats just mean better pictures -- Not that my photographic skills that great, front row or not. ;)

Here are some shots I took backstage and some of my personal favorite items of the collections.
I hope you like it!

WARNING: Picture overload.


Help // Asos Gift Card

Hi everyone!

Yes, I am still alive. I've just been super busy with my internship -- One week down, still two to go. Since it is a national holiday tomorrow, I decided to do absolutely nothing for school tonight.

My friend Hille gave me an Asos gift card for my birthday (you can never go wrong with some Asos) and I decided to focus on the tops and shirts. I'm a bit skeptical when it comes to online shopping, because I always think something will go wrong with the delivery or fitting of the items. So I thought that tops would be the safest when it comes to sizes. I have made my top 3 staying in the price range of the gift card, but I need your help, because I can not choose between these three items at all!

Which one do you prefer?
1, 2 or 3?
Please help me!

1. ASOS Maximal Sequin Jumper
2. ASOS Jumper With Neon Hedgehog Design
3. ASOS Jacquard Sleeveless Shell Top

P.S.: Thank you for all the birthday wishes in my last post!


New // Hermès Carré: 'Jungle Love'

Another birthday gift, this time given to me by the best sister and brother-in-law in the world! I couldn't believe it when they gave me a big orange Hermès-bag this morning. Inside, I found my very first Hermès Carré scarf, called 'Jungle Love'. And oh boy, am I in love with it! I couldn't have wished for a better gift. Now lets hope the rain will stay away just a little bit longer -- We don't want to ruin this baby, now do we?

Oh, and before I forget...
Thank you al so much for all the birthday wishes on Twitter and Facebook!
You're the best!

New // Marc by Marc Jacobs Goodies

Hi everyone!

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have read that I went to Maastricht to  do some pre-birthday shopping with my aunt. My birthday isn't 'till this Saturday, but since my aunt owns a restaurant, she hasn't got that much free time to go out. We had a lot of fun spending some one on one quality time together. When we got to Aim, my aunt bought me something which I was on my wish list for quite some time now. Aim sells brands such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Patrizia Pepe, See by Chloé ... and is definitely worth a visit if you're in Maastricht.

Do you want to see what my aunt got me?

Feature // Interview for Social Wardrobe

Hi everyone!

A while ago, I was contacted by Charlotte from Social Wardrobe to do an interview about Shark  Attack. What makes it a bit more special, is that she interviews Italian fashion bloggers. As you may, or may not know, both of my parents are Italian. I know, I don't look like your typical Italian girl - no Sammi Sweetheart or Deena lookalike here - but nonetheless, I'm still proud of my roots.

So you can imagine that I didn't need too much time to think about whether I would do the interview or not. Well, my first 'Italian' interview is a fact now! I must thank my mom though, since she helped me writing it. When it comes to the Italian language, my talking skills are better than my writing skills.

I know most of you won't understand a word of the interview, but for those who are still curious, you can have a look at the interview HERE. I'm talking about why I started with the blog, my fashion icons,  about how I personally think fashion blogging will evolve in the future, the beauty products I use, ...

I hope you had fun celebrating Halloween yesterday!
