Last week, the ever so sweet people at UPR and Zalando invited me to discover their newest collection, an offspring from the collaboration between blogger / it-girl Eleonora Carisi and Zalando. I hadn't attended an event for ages, the first images looked very promising and I had to miss my blogger friends for way too long; the perfect mix to get me going. Most events take place an hour drive away from my home town, so it's not always practical nor easy for me to attend them.
The event took place at Nomad in Antwerp. Time? 9 am. Auch! Getting up at 6 am wasn't an option (unless you want to meet some cranky b*tch), so I decided to crash at Michel and Bart's house the night place -- They're really good friends of mine and they live in Antwerp. Thanks again for the fun night, guys! Love you!
Anyway, UPR and Zalando organized a healthy breakfast for us bloggers, at which we could enjoy the great food, the lovely collection and cosy scenery (read: huge plants and trees in a tiny location). Eleonora Carisi is all about nature, which shows in the 9 piece collection she designed for Zalando: the print is a green leaves overload and the collection is made from silk, cotton and organza. You can check out the whole collection on Eleonora's own blog here.
Cutting it short: I had a blast with my fellow bloggers, binged on all the delish food and really loved the collection, even though I always thought that I'd never like the color green. Thumbs up!
The Eleonora Carisi For Zalando collection will be available from March (which is, like, now) and you can get it here. Please note that the collection is made from pretty things such as silk, cotton and organza, so the prices are adjusted to that fact. But remember: you get an eye catching statement piece in return!

Blending in perfectly with my Eleonora Carisi For Zalando blouse. I love the print and leather pants combo! Never mind the shoes, lol.
