Outfit // Voodoo Child

Well, nothing new to say about this outfit. Most of you know that I'm a sucker for band shirts, so when I saw this one at the H&M men's department, I had to get it. To make something clear: I do love and listen to all the bands that are pictured on my shirts. I'm allergic to people who wear band shirts of one of my favorite bands and that can't name even one song. 

Another fact: I love blue and gold combos. I thought it would be fun to add some bold jewelry and a classic bag to this rather casual outfit.

Sorry for the awkward poses, but it was freezing when we shot these pictures.

What'd ya think?

I'll meet you on the next one. 
And don't be late."

Beauty // Guerlain

I was sent these Guerlain goodies by the sweet people at LVMH as a Christmas gift and even though I'm not the best beauty blogger out there, I wanted to share this with you. Among other things, like adorable mini Dior towels, I got to try out two lipsticks from the Rouge de Guerlain-collection and their famous Météorites Perles

Merry Christmas!

I wish that I could show you a picture of my Christmas tree, but my mom decided not to set one up this year. I guess you'll have to do with a picture I've found on Tumblr

Anyway, back to the original purpose of this post...
I'd like to wish you all a merry Christmas, with lots of love and happiness! You know, all the super cheesy stuff, but I'm not going to bother you with that. I'm planning on spending the night at home with my family and some friends, talking and stuffing myself with tons of food. What are your plans?

Shark Attack Video // Verso

So, here's my video of one of my personal hotspots: Verso in Antwerp. 
As I already told you in my previous post, I always visit the store whenever I'm around... Not only to drool over all the new goodies, but also because I'm hopelessly in love with the location. This might sound strange, but you see, Verso happens to be located in a beautiful mansion which dates all the way back to the 16th century. You have to see it for yourself to believe it, no joke. 

With some of my favorite brands being sold there - Alexander McQueen, Dior, Givenchy, Love Moschino & Yves Saint Laurent - you can imagine the damage it does to my bank account. My favorite part of the store is where the accessories are being displayed: they have the best selection when it comes to bags, sunglasses, jewelry and shoes. And even though we didn't shoot there, Verso also has a men department. #ExtraFun

Anyway, I'm done talking for now... Time to show you the video! I don't have a personal camera crew at my disposal, so I'm sorry if your hawk eyes detect some beginner mistakes. My sister and brother-in-law were a major help in editing this video and we decided to speed things up, so we could give you as many teases as possible. Now hit that 'Play'-button and do let me know what you think!

New // Valentino & Tom Ford

Santa came early this year and decided to gift me two of my favorite fellas. I got these two items at Verso, one of my favorite multi brand stores in Antwerp. They have the best selection when it comes to brands such as Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Moschino, Valentino, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and way more. I was allowed to shoot a video in the store, which I'll post here as soon as I finished editing it.

The Valentino-bag was on my wish list for a while now. Studs and leather: my favorite combo. I like the fact that it it's black, it fits my style perfectly, I can wear it every day and that I can throw all my shit in there.

Shark Attack Loves... // Dita Von Teese & Cointreau

Let me introduce you a collaboration that makes my heart go boom boom boom: Dita Von Teese & Cointreau.

I've been a fan of Dita ever since I saw her perform a burlesque act in a giant champagne glass. After that, she married one of my high school idols: Marilyn Manson. I still love the shock rocker and his music, but I'm not that obsessed about him as I used to be. Oh, and did I mention that I'm absolutely jealous of Dita's make-up, which always seems to be flawless? Eye liner and red lipstick are her signature look, which happens to be my all time favorite too. Just holla at my Instragram (@Krizia_S), lol. 

Anyway, Miss Von Teese and Cointreau - the yummy orange-flavoured liqueur - teamed up for a project called: My Cointreau Evening Bag. Dita wanted to design a bag which holds all kind of secrets and surprises and she nailed it head on. The bag contains a bottle of Cointreau (obviously), three different kind of spices (to spice up your cocktail, of course), a powder box (which actually is a tea box), a spoon (with a vintage look to it), a 'jigger' (a glass to measure the right amounts of ingredients) and last but not least: a secret book of recipes which contains all of Dita's best cocktails and how to create them.

Oh, and did I mention that you can remove all of the parts inside, so that you can carry Dita's design as an actual bag? Now, since I've been a verrry good girl this year, I'm secretly hoping that Santa Claus will think of me and Miss Von Teese. 

If you've been a bad girl or if you just want to gift yourself something pretty, you can go to Smets Premium Store (Brussels), Baby Beluga (Antwerp) or Eva Bos (Ghent) to purchase one of these beauties.

Outfit // Uniform

God, it feels so good to write a new post. I feel so bad for abandoning the blog, but I want you to know that it's not my intention. The last couple of days were filled with teaching my students the last things they need to know for their exams, setting up those exams -- which took me 'till 2 am to finish them -- copying them and so on. I'm more than ready to see those kiddos sweat over the questions I'm asking them. #EvilGrin
Anyway, the Christmas holidays are coming up, which means I'll have 2 weeks off, which means I'll have time to blog on full force again. 

My mom and I shot these pictures when it was drizzling. I love December for the Christmas spirit, but I detest it for the weather that comes with it. I received this jacket - and some other stuff - by Very Simple, an Italian brand which sells the cutest items to wear. As a full blooded Italian, I'm proud to wear items to support up and coming Italian brands and designers. The jacket reminded me of a school uniform jacket in a way, but I decided to add a touch of 'badness' by wearing my beloved leather pants. I've been living in them for the last couple of months, I just love them. To find the nearest Very Simple-store in Belgium, you can contact FAMS at +3222675186. To find the nearest one in Europe, you can mail at info@verysimple.it! 

As for the booties... Do you remember them? I already have them in green (see here), but the sweet Sharon from Hippe Schoenen also sent them to me in black. Loves it! I'm also happy to announce that I'm one of the ambassadors of the brand, so I'm very excited to see how that will turn out.

Aangezien ik één van de ambassadrices van Hippe Schoenen ben, krijgen mijn Belgische en Nederlandse lezeressen 10 % korting! Je kan hiervoor de kortingscode sharkattack12 gebruiken. Laat me zeker en vast iets weten als je een paar schoenen gekocht hebt! Happy shopping!
