New // Sacha Sneakers

 photo DSC02036_zps1a78e698.jpg
Meet my new sneakers, gifted by Sacha. When they told me I could pick a pair from their website, I knew it would be sneakers, since my ankle is still broken and I probably won't be able to wear heels for a while... Which is also why I'm not posting any outfit posts lately. All I can wear for the moment are leggings and sweatpants. Nothing fashionable about that.

Anyway, I thought these sneakers would look cool combined with a pair of skinny jeans, leather trousers or underneath a dress. If Rihanna's allowed to do it, so am I. When I opened the box, I immediately noticed the platform sole. They didn't seem so 'platformy' when I clicked them home, so I kinda started panicking. I never considered myself as one to wear platforms. Anyway, I do like myself a challenge once in a while and the more I look at them, the more I like them. They'll add the right amount of dope / swag to an outfit. Oh no, I'm talking slang now! 

I did some research on bloggers who love to wear platform sneakers -- check out my selection below. What do you think about this trend? Love or hate?

Money VS Budget // Kenzo VS H&M

The Kenzo-sweaters with the famous tiger head print have been dominating the fashion scene for a while now. From fashion bloggers to fashion editors, they all fell tiger head over heels for them. As it happens with all it-items, high street labels quickly started to sell their own version. I thought the hype would be over by now, but if it's up to the designers at H&M, this wild trend is here to stay for a bit longer. 

With the original Kenzo-sweater being sold out pretty much everywhere, you can pick up the budget friendlier version at H&M or online HERE.

Shark Attack Travels // Ascoli Piceno: Lost Count

Sooo, this happened during my holiday here in Italy. Remember my previous post, where I told you I was meeting up with 2 friends from Belgium? Something funny happened that night and while we were still laughing about it, I slipped and broke my ankle. Apparently, I can't laugh and walk at the same time. I was wearing my Chloé Susan boots and it's actually the second time I fell while wearing them, because the sole is so slippy. I definitely learned my lesson. Should I sue them? Just kidding, because I love those shoes to death. The first thing I thought was: "Oh my God, are my Chloé shoes okay???" Until my friend asked me: "Are you in pain?" And I was like: "Yeah, acutally I am!"

The picture above was taken right before I went to the hospital. I got all dressed up, explaining to my mom that I might bump into a Dr. McDreamy or Dr. McSteamy. Well, that didn't happen and we ended up sitting in the First Aid waiting room from 10.30 am 'till 6 pm. Italian hospitals are the worst and you have to pray that you don't end up there during your holiday. I rented some crutches and a wheel chair, but the doctor told me to stay inside and keep my leg still. That's why, as stated in this post's title, I lost count of which day we are today. Anyway, here are some snaps of when I was being a rebel and went outside.



Shark Attack Travels // Ascoli Piceno: Day 4 + 5

The reason why I skipped 2 days of photographs is because I was stuck inside, collecting votes for the competition in which I could win a vintage Chanel-bag. My best friend Dario spent 3 days at my aunt's restaurant back in Belgium, asking every single client that entered to vote for me. He's such a sweetheart and I bought him a nice Thank You-gift, but I can't tell you what it is, because he reads my blog! I ended 2nd in the competition and I want to thank everyone who voted for me!

We went to Meletti to drink a crodino yesterday, which is a 100-year-old bar and used to belong to the Meletti family, famous for their anisette. After that, we went straight home. It started to rain again, so it wasn't fun to stay outside.

P.S.: Sorry for the repetitive bag and shoes. Flying with Ryanair comes with tons of restrictions, so I hate to limit myself to one bag and two pair of shoes (my Chloé boots and Chanel espedrilles). A nightmare for every blogger!


Shark Attack Travels // Ascoli Piceno: Day 1

Hi from Italy! 
Yes, I'm finally here again with my mom and my sister. I haven't had the chance to visit my family for 10 years, so it definitely feels good to be back. I'm staying at my mom's cousin's house and I'm glad I'll be able to update the blog during my stay, even if it takes forever with the slow Internet connection.

My family lives in Ascoli Piceno, a medieval city located in the middle of Italy's east coast. During our arrival and the first part of our first day here (which is today) it was warm and sunny, but now it's raining cats and dogs. We went for a walk around the city and it feels surreal to be here again. Plus, as a history lover, it's perfect to be surrounded by Roman bridges and medieval buildings. I already ate too much, by the way: white pizza with corn, stuffed olives (olive ascolane), risotto, frozen yoghurt, mini pizza on the go and we still have dinner tonight. 

I already tried to snap as many pictures as possible. I'm so proud to show you the beautiful city I can call my temporary home again.
