Aime Toi



A Burberry wool duffle coat and fluffy Muks boots (from www.shoeonthecake.com) make a perfect outfit for the first cold days.
Btw, this coat is my latest purchase and it was love for the first sight - so warm, so bright (it feels like Christmas when I wear it :-D) and such a perfect shape! I´m taking it with me to Paris tonight, can´t wait! :-)

Vernissage in Antwerp

 

Last Wednesday I went to a vernissage of a very tallented architect and artist Michiel van der Bos in Antwerp. And I couldn´t resist to take a couple of outfit pictures in Antwerp by night.

Black & White Experiment

 
 
I keep experimenting with photography technics and this time I´ve tried to make my pictures in black and white. I really enjoy the result plus like this you can see better the jeans structure. I add a couple of non-retouched photos as well so you can see the colours of the outfit.

Rock´n´Roll by See by Chloé



When it comes to significant items, I always start with them when composing my outfit. In this case, such item were definitely my pink wedges from See by Chloé.
Well enough theory, this is my "rock´n´roll" outfit.

See by Chloé Booties in Electric Blue



Electric blue suede and silver lamé on a black woollen background – those were the ingredients of my today´s outfit. Although silver lamé usually reminds me of a spacesuit, I couldn´t resist this dashing jacket.

Double Pied de Poule


On Saturday, I tried quite a risky combination of two pieces with a dog-tooth pattern, both in different colours. And I have to say that I really like the result.
I took these pictures by a lovely little church I discovered by chance in Uccle (and of course I forgot its name).
P.S. Yes, I know that I kind of look like Yulia Tymoshenko with this hair-do, I hear that all the time. :-) But there´s a "significant" difference, she has one braid around her head while I have two. ;-)

Velvet Jacket

 

Good Monday morning everyone! Did your weekend pass as quickly as mine? :-)
Back at work - back to smart outfits. Today I´ve chosen this black-beige combination with a velvet jacket that I really like but don´t wear that often.

Mer du Nord Dress


If I remember well, I got these boots in Bruges in 2008. And they´re still one of my favourites, such a piece of good leather and in addition so comfortable! This time I matched them with a brown dress from Mer du Nord and distinctive earrings.

My Way of Business Dress Code

 

I´m not a big fan of a business dress code, although it´s supposed to be my daily "uniform". That´s why I´m searching for ways to evade, mainly through colours and modern shapes.

Blue + Trenchcoat



A sporty casual combination wrapped in a classic trenchcoat, that was my yesterday choice.
I´m trying a new photo editor program, in case you´re asking why the photos are a bit greenish today. :-)

Brussels Beauty



Good morning! I was thinking that there´s too much of me on this blog (well it´s my blog but that´s not an excuse :-D) so I´ve decided I´m gonna surprise you with new faces and their styles from time to time.
And here´s my first "victim": Katka has agreed to run the risk to be a model for such an "experienced" photographer as I am... And here´s the result. Isn´t she pretty? :-)

Typical Autumn



If I should define my typical casual autumn outfit, it would be something of this kind... Greyish shades, a woolen coat with pied-de-poule pattern, ankle boots and warm tights or overknee socks. These super-soft ones from Tommy Hilfiger are my favourite.

New Boots In



It´s always better to face the upcoming winter season with new equipment. And here´s mine – three amazing pairs of boots from www.shoeonthecake.com. Blue See by Chloé suede lowboots, grey Ash Jalouse calf suede ankle booties and Muks tall wrap suede and fur boots. Which is your favourite pair?

Rock Ballerina


 


A bit schizofrenic outfit - a romantic ballerina skirt in nude with a rocker leather jacker in black and leopard pumps. What do you think?

PFW Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013

 


The Louis Vuitton fashion show presented in the Paris Fashion Week was really noble and impressive. Models dressed in 60s style dresses with a damier pattern were strikingly arriving to the catwalk on escallators - who´d expect that?! 
Those outfits, styling and models themselves somehow reminded me Uma Thurman in Gattaca, a sci-fi movie about genetically superior (wo)men. What do you think?

This Is It



This is exactly what I would like to wear today - a bright colourful outfit for a good autumn mood. But as I´m having a cold, I´m staying in bed with a million of handkerchieves around me instead. 

The weather is a difficult part of living in Belgium and this "flu" autumn season is the worst. :-( Don´t expect any Indian summer and better get your hoods, hats and scarves ready. Yes, here even I got used to wearing hoods. In Czech, I used to wear umbrellas but in Belgium I can´t recommend them as here a wind gust settles an umbrella in max. five minutes.

So, this was my optimistic post for today. :-D

Trip with My Grandma



On St. Wenceslas Day, I went for a trip with my grandma and her airedale terrier Agata. We visited a region of my grandma´s childhood and had lots of fun the whole day! :-)
Just Agatha was quite annoyed, she is a lady of a certain age and doesn´t fancy whole-day trips at all. Obviously not even the chateau Zleby made her excited. :-D

P.S. You cannot see my gradnma as she forbade me to put any of her photos on my blog...

MFW Prada + Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2013



Another significant collections presented in the Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 were from Prada and Alberta Ferretti.
While Prada has introduced a collection with Japanese influences, mostly in black and white, Alberta Ferretti has shown amazingly delicate "mermaid" looks in water colours.
Would you choose your outfit?
