Outfit // Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone!

I wish you all a happy and (not too) scary Halloween! I'd love to celebrate Halloween in the USA some 
day, since the Americans are some die hard Halloweeners. Since I have to prepare a major internship during the holidays, I'm not going to dress up tonight. I might go out with some friends, but nothing too special. After the holidays, I have to teach English and history at my old high school for 3 week straight and it takes a lot of time to prepare all of the lessons I have to teach. I'd already like to apologize for all the trees I'll kill during these 4 weeks while copying, typing my lesson preparation forms, preparing tests / tasks ..., but don't worry -- You will be used well.

Due to my internship, I'm not sure if I'll be able to post a lot, since school is a bigger priority, whether I like it or not. So please bare with me -- I hope you'll understand and I also hope that I'll still see all of you again when my internship is over. I do have an exciting event on 11th November, which involves a collaboration with Coca Cola Light, but I'll keep you updated on that matter. :)

I leave you with some pictures of last year's costume -- My friend Hille and I went clubbing and we were the only two with Halloween-costumes, along with these other two fellas a.k.a. George W. Bush and Osama Bin Laden. We won a prize for 'Best Costume' (which is not that hard if only 4 people are wearing Halloween costumes) and we were given free drinks all night long. Definitely one of the best nights ever!

What are your plans for tonight? Is any of you going trick or treating? If you're dressing up as a skeleton, a ghost or something else, do let me know! I'm always curious for things like that!

New // Film & Fashion

Yesterday, I went shopping in Maastricht where I found these two fashion documentaries for only 16 euros. It was such a bargain, that I couldn't leave them in the store, especially since the left one is a DVD-box containing 3 DVD's with documentaries about the lives and careers of Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld and Valentino. The DVD about Valentino is the famous documentary 'Valentino: The Last Emperor'. I never had the chance to see it before, so I'm glad to own it now.

The second DVD is called 'Signé Chanel', which is a documentary about Chanel (duh!), but more specifically on how Karl and his employees create the haute couture collections. They give you a detailed look on the first sketches drawn by Karl himself, to the many seamstresses pulling some all nighters to get the items ready and to the models finally presenting the clothes on the catwalk.

Has anyone of you already seen one of these documentaries?
Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts on them in the comment box below. :)

Outfit // Peter Pan

Wearing a Peter Pan-collar and a Tinkerbell-bun -- I got my clothing and hair inspiration from my two favorite characters out of one of the best Disney-movies ever. The sun is still shining these days, giving me the chance to wear this shirt designed by my friend and co-blogger Tiany Kiriloff. This shirt was one of the first items that caught my eye when I had the opportunity to have a preview at her collection last spring.

If it weren't for the cute collar and color, I'm not sure if I would have bought it. I also bought it in white, which is a basic item that goes with almost everything and will never ever go out of style. Because of the popping color of the shirt, I decided to keep the rest of the outfit simple.

Wanted // Part 3

Most of you will probably be tired of seeing the Yves Saint Laurent Arty Rings all over the Internet, but I could look at them forever. Already owning the dark blue and light blue Arty Rings, I thought I'd be more than satisfied... But I'm not. The new collection of Arty Rings hit the (online) stores, and I've fallen head over heels for this dark red beauty.

I love big, chunky, gold jewelry and the fact that this ring looks like it comes from an ancient treasure makes it even better. You'll probably think I'm crazy, since I already own two of them but to me, these rings are one of those items of which you'll never have enough. My dad's probably going to kill me for buying another one, but knowing myself, I won't be able to resist. All I have to do now is save up some money... And not to forget that my birthday is coming up soon! I can't believe I'm turning 22 on the 5th of November, but I'm trying not to think of that too much.

What do you think? Yes or no?

Outfit // The Doors

For today's outfit I got inspired by one of my all time favorite bands: The Doors. Their lead singer, Jim Morrison, used to wear these type of outfits all the time, meaning leather pants, leather boots, chunky belts, a white or black shirt and a leather jacket.

I can still remember the first time I heard a song of The Doors. I think I must have been 14 or 15 years old and I was watching a movie called 'The Lost Boys'. In the movie, they play The Doors' song called 'People Are Strange' during one of the scenes. There was something about Morrison's voice that got me completely hooked and I still am today.

Last spring, I finally got to visit Jim Morrison's final resting place. He's buried in the Père Lachaise-cemetary in Paris. I had been waiting for this opportunity for years and I found it so strange how I could feel so sad about a person I'd never even met or known in my life. I guess it shows how much music can affect us. I've put one of my favorite songs in the end of the post, called 'The End'. This music might  not be everyone's cup of tea, but I still wanted to share it with you, since music is a big part of my life too.

Backstage // Strijk A Pose-tour

Hi loves!

As promised: the backstage pictures of the Strijk A Pose-tour with Belmodo.tv and Philips. I had a great time and was well taken care of, thanks to Angelique from Belmodo.tv and a professional team of photographers and make up artists.

The day started with taking a picture of my 'Before'-outfit. Then, it was time to hit the Vero Moda-store in Hasselt to select some outfits for the photoshoot. I'd also like to thank the sweet girls who work at Vero Moda for helping us out with everything the crew needed! There were so many items to choose from, but we somehow managed to create some outfits pretty fast. After that, it was time for hair and make up. I normally don't wear any make up besides some mascara and lipstick, adding some foundation and eyeliner if I have a party or special event / occasion to go to. Nonetheless, I loved the make up and I can't wait to try it out again.

And last but not least: the photoshoot. It was my first time to be part of a professional photoshoot. My mom always takes my pictures, so posing for a 'stranger' all of the sudden took some adjustment, but everything went smoothly in the end.

Here are some backstage shots, they're too fun not to share them with you!
All pictures are taken by Siska Vandecasteele.
