New // Isabel Marant Renell Jeans

My first Isabel Marant-item is a fact. While on a shopping trip to Antwerp with my boyfriend, I managed to get my hands on the Isabel Marant Renell Jeans, also known as the Navajo pants. They're from the Fall/Winter 2011/2012-collection and are those type of jeans you either love or hate -- I've loved them ever since I saw them all over Fashion Week.

I found them at the Graanmarkt 13 store and I know I would've regretted it if I didn't buy them, especially since they were the last pair in store. The fact that I got them at a 20 % discount makes it even better. I can't wait to wear them and have already been brainstorming on an outfit. I love them in white too, but since I rarely wear white (and they didn't have them at the store anymore), I decided to go for my beloved black. I advise you to visit the Graanmarkt 13 store if you're in Antwerp. Not only do they have the best items and brands, but the girls working there are also very helpful.

My boyfriend likes the pants too, which kinda took me by surprise. Well, I won't complain about that matter. ;)

So, what do you think?
Tell me your thoughts in the comment box below. Can't wait to hear them. :)

P.S.: The pictures were taken when it was dark outside, so I had to use the flash (which I usually never use, since I hate 'flash-pictures'). I just couldn't wait to show you the pants. #blush

Personal // Christmas

While wishing you a Merry Christmas in advance in my previous post, I am now wishing you a belated Merry Christmas! I hope you all had an amazing time with your loved ones and I wish you all the best in the world.

My Christmas consisted out of family, friends and TONS of food -- That's what you get when you come from an Italian family. A couple of days ago, I was invited to a friend's Christmas party, which meant I got to spend the night with some of my closest friends accompanied by tons of food (again).
That's me after dinner in the first picture -- Totally tired of eating and resting to let everything sink in.

I wanted to show you some pictures of the Christmas party, ft. three of my closest friends. There are  other friends worth mentioning too, though. Friends who were at the party and of which I didn't  manage to take a picture and friends who were not there, but whom I still keep close in my heart. I'm going to start with them first:

Sabrina: My best friend since high school. She and I are the perfect example of the fact that you don't have to see or hear each other every day to know that you can count on each other, no matter what.
Hille: She's been there for me in some critical moments. We've been through so much together, I couldn't live without her.
Giovanna: The hostess of the Christmas party and someone who's become a close friend over a short amount of time. We've known each other since high school, but we never really hung out together -- Until a couple of months ago. I'm so happy that I got to know her better.

I feel blessed to have such amazing friends and I hope that you also have those few close friends of which you know they will always be there for you (and vice versa, of course).
Ready to see the faces of my other three close friends?

Detail // Feather

I got inspired by one of my all time favorite musicians for this detail: Steven Tyler from Aerosmith.
He's well known for wearing feather earrings, feather extensions and God knows what else and I've been kinda digging it for a long time.

I've been on the search for 'the perfect pair of feather earrings' (Djeez, what a description) and after quite a long search, I found these red ones. What I like most of the combo with my long hair is that the feather comes peeking out once in a while and isn't visible all the time. It's funny to see people look at your right ear while they're talking to you and see them think: "What the hell is THAT?" 

Even though I was obliged to buy them in pairs, I only wear one earring. Don't ask me why, I just think it's more fun. I'm still looking for some feather extensions and my mom is trying to talk me out of it, saying I'll "look like a chicken" -- She already knows I won't listen, though. Sorry, mom!

To see my beloved Steven Tyler rocking his feathers, just Google 'Steven Tyler feathers' and you'll get a gazillion pictures.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas in advance, hoping you'll all get to spend it with your loved ones.

Fashion News // Alice Dellal for Chanel

Pictures: wwd.com & fashioncopious.typepad.com

Yes, yes, yes! One of my favorite IT-girls ever, Alice Dellal, will be the new face of the Boy Chanel handbag collection. I literally can not wait to see the results of the campaign starring the tattooed and pierced Brazilian model, which is expected to launch in March next year.

As a sign of 'confirmation', a sneak peek appeared on the Internet, showing Alice Dellal being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. Dellal, former model for Mango and Agent Provocateur, is seen in a girly ensemble, which is a nice change from her leather, ripped tights and spiked filled outfits.

Alice, who has Charlotte Casiraghi from Monaco as her sister-in-law (how cool is that?), was my inspiration to shave a part of my hair. You can see the result here. I love how Chanel always manages to find a balance in being young and edgy, but still classy.

What do you think of Lagerfeld's choice?
Hit or miss?

P.S.: I'd like to thank one of my favorite stores, the SN3, for personally tweeting me the news on Twitter. So sweet!


Outfit // Powder Pink

Hi everyone!

Notice anything different? Apart of wearing my contacts again - I do still wear my glasses, though - I decided to try something different with my hair. Inspired by Mary-Kate Olsen in this picture, I decided to try out her hairdo ... And I kinda like the result! Do you? It's also the perfect way to hide the left side of my head / hair, which I shaved last Spring and is growing back now, making it a total disaster.

This kimono-like blouse is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. Even if I like leather, skulls and everything 'rock-ish', I still am a girl, so I like girly things from time to time too. ;) The clutch was a birthday gift and I never got around to wear it, until now (obviously).

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this hairdo. :)

Blouse: ZARA // Skirt: H&M // Booties: SAM EDELMAN // Clutch: MARC BY MARC JACOBS


Outfit // Faux Fur & Leather

You might notice something different ... I'm wearing glasses from now on - orders of the eye specialist. I've been wearing glasses ever since I was 7 years old, but I switched to contacts as soon as I was allowed to. Well, that wasn't such a great idea ... My eyes are damaged of wearing contacts non stop, so I have to wear glasses for 6 months straight. My eyesight is really bad (I have - 11 on both eyes now), so the lenses of my glasses are really thick. Just so you know, in case you were wondering why my glasses are deforming my eyes / head. I know that almost everyone is wearing these type of glasses now, but because of the thick lenses, I had no other option. What do you think?

As for the outfit, I opted for faux leather pants, a faux leather jacket and a faux fur vest. I'm also wearing knee high leather boots and I like the fact that they kinda blend in with the pants, making them almost invisible. Temperatures are staring to go down at a high speed now, but as long it isn't snowing, I won't complain too much. My dad bought me this bag when we were on a holiday in Sicily three years ago. The bag's shape is totally ruined (which is my own fault), but I still love it.

Random // Winter Blues

I've been meaning to shoot some outfit pictures for a while now, but this sh*tty weather sure is one hell of a party pooper. I absolutely detest winter and I hope that it will be over ASAP. And as for snow ... Well, lets just say that I am not hoping for a white Christmas. #sorry

Since I couldn't shoot new pictures, I thought it would be fun to do a post with pictures of old and more recent outfits I took when the weather gods showed more mercy. Followers who have been reading my blog for a while might recognize most outfits while new followers will have a nice summary of some of my favorite spring and summer outfits.

I hope you'll enjoy this post!

New // UGG Australia Classic Short Sangria Boots

Do you still remember that I recently attended the opening of the UGG Australia-store at Maasmechelen Village? Well, I was gifted a pair of UGG-boots by the friendly people from UGG Australia, Maasmechelen Village and Oona that day.

Let me get things straight first ... I find it important to be honest with my readers, so here we go:
I usually would never buy these shoes myself. They just do not fit my personal style. But I always was curious about their secret, since I saw so many people wear them. People in my home town, at school, celebrities on the set of their new movie / TV-show / whileshopping ... They all have 'em.

I initially chose a pair of black UGGs with a zipper on the sides. You know me, I will always have the urge to turn to black. When I tried them on, the first thing I said was: "OMG, look at my feet!". UGGs tend to give your feet a ... well ... lets say 'different' shape. But I got over it and I found (and still find) them extremely warm and comfortable. Believe me, they might not be the most flattering shoes on earth - I am aware of that - but they are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own at the moment.

So I wore them non-stop to go to school or to walk around the house and in my enthusiasm, I managed to break the zipper. I went back to the UGG-store at Maasmechelen Village and got to choose a new pair -- Thank you all, once again. Due to the hundreds of people invading the store on a daily basis ever since the opening, my size was almost sold out, except for a pair of classic short sangria-colored UGGs. After doubting and debating for almost an hour and my mom reminding me that I keep saying that I want to add some extra color to my closet, I decided to get them.

My dad, sister and brother-in-law think they're 'UGGly', my mom thinks they're cute and my boyfriend thinks they are 'okay' (I think that he doesn't wants to hurt my feelings).

How do you feel about UGGs?
Share your thoughts in the comment box below... I'm so curious!
