All white

Although the pictures may say the opposite, I'm getting really excited over here! And I've got so my reasons: just one more resit to go, in less than four days I'll be about 4000 kilometres further with my feet in the Atlantic ocean and my Nike ID's will arrive today! After Friday, I can finally enjoy the last weeks of summer without any obligations. No resits, no need for studying, no summer job, hoozay!

About the outfit, it's my first try on an all white look! Well technically not 'all' white, but you got the message. I like the result, but to be honest, it didn't really feel like me. An all white look creates such a clean, perfect image. Personally I like things to be a bit more casual and nonchalant. So I guess it'll be an all black look next time? Anyway, I'm too excited because of the reasons above to be bothered. 
Toodles, darlings!

Edit: Today turned out even better than it was! I finally found the perfect black booties that I was looking for so long, the sweet cassière gave me a compliment about my red lipstick, I discovered an awesome cheap design store in my neighborhood and my Nike's have arrived! There was a big smile on my face during the whole way home haha! :D Oh snap, it's even still there!

Morbid humor

Do you know that feeling that you're suddenly very into something? A movie for instance? Well, I have it with The Addams Family lately. I rewatched the movies and fell completely in love again with their morbid sense of humor. Especially mother Morticia got my attention. Despite the fact that her make up look isn't very uhm... flattering, Anjelica Huston made a marvellous character out of 'Tish' Addams. And then not the mention the chemistry between Gomez and Morticia! Ah, if only someone could treat me the way Gomez treats his Morticia! (Oh shut up Siel, you've got an awesome boyfriend al ready.)
I wondered if I could remake those crazy cheekbones of her. One thing led to another and POOF... suddenly I was making pictures trying to look like her!
Do you think I succeeded?

Anyway, it gives a good dose of inspiration for my favourite holiday: Halloween! Can't wait till the 31st of October!

For those interested, this is the order of the movies:
  • The Addams Family (1991)
  • Addams Family Values (1993)    Sequel of previous movie
  • Addams Family Reunion (1998)  Stands apart from previous movies (and less good in my opinion)
I didn't watch the original series again, but they're certainly on my series-to-watch-list!

PS. Sorry for the overload of pictures and GIF's, I just couldn't decide which ones I loved more! :)

Sporty chic, winter pastels

Yup, definitely approved!

Earlier I spoke about how our dear old JBC is an underrated brand in Belgian fashion. While giving a look on their a/w'14 collection I have to agree again. Come on, sporty chic, winter pastels and a dose of glam, that's spot on!
Also I'm getting sort of an addiction of winter coats, there are so many pretty ones lately! The pink one above for instance! Luckily I can use a new coat, so I get all the fun of being on a coat quest hehe. ^^

Current favourites:
All from JBC.

Same dress, different outfit. This dress looks completely different without a belt. Like a playful babydoll. It changes me in a free spirit that only wants to spin around and around!
Oh summer, please never end.

New hair, don't care

I couldn't resist it. I had to find an excuse to show you my freshly cut hair coupe. It's not a big difference, just a bit shorter and it's a little bit layered again, but I like it very much! It feels like such a fabulous WAG's hair cut, always perfectly healthy and bouncy. Until I wash it probably...
Anyway, enough about the hair. Whatcha think of my new blouse? I couldn't resist it in the sales last month. Yet another white blouse. But in my excuse, the pattern is perfectly trendy and we do have to go with our time, don't we?

Yes, I admit it, I'm hopelessly in love with this dress. I always loved off shoulder tops and wide, swirly skirts, and this dress has both! It makes me feel all girly and playful. My mum calls it my princess dress, and my sister is even worse by calling me a barbie doll who belongs in a window display. But I don't really mind as long as I (and the boyfriend) like it! ^^

&Other Stories dress - vintage belt

PS. these picture reminded me a little too much of a certain Christian tradition we have here. So I had a little fun playing around and made a matching card. Lol.

My own personalised shoes

Let me tell you a little story about shoes, sportive shoes that is.

I've never been a sneaker type. Yes, I do own a pair of all stars from when I was 14 years old and yes I still wear them occasionally when I need shoes that might get dirty, but that's about it. That mostly summarizes my sneaker history.
And then there is the sports shoes story, which is even worse. I used to detest those things. I'm not a very sporty person, never have and probably never will. The only time you could find some sport shoes on my feet was during gymnastics at school. And even then against my will. The only thing I could think of was how ugly and huge they were.
You'll understand that I viewed the upcoming sneaker trend of the past years with suspicion. But surprisingly I slowly started to appreciate those low white all stars and even the Nike free runs. After working in a big sports store this holiday, and seeing those kind of shoes all around me, I started considering a pair of my own...

Exploring time! I spent a while searching on the internet for the sportive shoe of my dreams. Pretty soon I stumbled on this pair. Instant love. But since I strongly believe in real life fitting I decided to try on a similar pair first. And guess what, there appears to be a Nike store right next to the store I worked, that's handy! So I tried on a pair I thought (as a Nike noob) to be similar. And then the big shock came, they made me walk heavenly! Like my feet were two soft, comfy clouds. You can imagine where this is going. These little wonders appeared to be another model, the lunarglide, not the free run. And when I tried on the free run (with some help of the salesman), I was really disappointed. No comfy cloud feet this time, but an awkwardly wide part at the toes instead. Soooo what to do now? Order a not so comfy but beautiful pair of free runs or personalize my own heavenly comfy lunarglides?
Well, I choose the latter and present you: my own personalized pair of Nike ID lunarglides! They will arrive by the end of August and I honestly can't wait! Normally they will arrive just on time for my holiday, hooray!
