Look of the day: Summer Vibes

Summer Vibes

When I'm making those summer-inspired "look of the day"-outfits, I get a tingle in my toes yearning for the summer sun. Especially now that my boyfriend and I are making plans for a trip to New York in April! I'm so excited about that; I've always wanted to visit and discover the city that never sleeps. But besides that, there are a lot of other places that I would like to visit too. 

Lately I have a huge crush on everything that's pink, although I am absolutely not a typical pink-inspired girl. On the contrary! But I have the feeling that pink will be my color for the summer this year...

Brrr...it's going to be the coldest week of the month and I'm already feeling it... Me want summer back!

Lintie mary-jane pump by Rupert Sanderson

The perfect shoe just entered my life, I'm flabbergasted...

I just discovered the pair of shoes that were made for me: the Rupert Sanderson Lintie high heel peep toe pumps in red suede with a 10 cm heel. The design, the color and the qualified finishing are really my cup of tea. 

But first things first, who's Rupert Sanderson?! I guess most of you will not know the name, but that's okay. I discovered the brand myself when I started working at Smets Premium Store Brussels. Rupert is a designer who started to make shoes just out of ambition and curiosity. He learned the craftsmanship while visiting as much shoe factories, tanneries and last makers as he could. After his studies at the Cordwainers College in East London, he started working for Sergio Rossi and then Bruno Magli. 

His design philosophy is simply 'less is more'. Avoiding augmentation and over dressing the foot he concentrates on perfecting line, volume and material to flatter and lengthen the leg, and make women feel sexier.  His inspiration comes from the materials themselves; from the sensual curve and silhouettes of the lasts and heels, to the quality and finish of the best leather and fabrics.

Another nice fact about Rupert: to complement his obsessive passion with the Italian craft of shoe making, every pair of Rupert Sanderson shoes is named after a Daffodil. 

The beautiful Astrid Bergès-Frisbey wears the Lintie
pumps at the Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris.

Look of the day: La Vie en Rose

La Vie en Rose

A new week and thus a new look of the day! For this week I wanted to keep it girly and sweet, because it has something inconsiderate which I really love. I'm turning 23 years old this year and sometimes I feel the pressure to perform and make the right decisions for my future. It's so hard sometimes to make the good choices... At such moments I would love to be a child again, protected by your parents and living in your own fantasy. Aaah, time flies and we only try to make the best of it. I hope that there's much good for me to come...

Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?

Together with my colleague Michael we had some fun taking pictures with the mirrors at work. Because all the triangular mirrors where standing around one another, we could realize this trompe l'oeil effect with the pictures. What's even more fantastic about it, is that you don't even see the photographer in the pictures! It's perfect to take outfit pictures, because you immediately have all the sides in one picture. I'm a fan!
And for all the people who think we're having fun instead of working: these pictures where taken during our last hour of work when there are no costumers left in the shop. ;)

Here are my outfit details:
Top: ASOS Collection
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Cardigan: Zara Knitwear
Wedges: See by Chloé 
(my first sale piece this month)

Have a nice sunday!

Temperley London Pre-Fall 2012

There is only one thing I can say about this picture:

I love everything about this outfit: the lace finishing at the neck, the length, the sleeves and the fact that they combined it with a classic trench. The pre-fall collection by Temperley London really looks amazing.  If you want to see the full collection, click here.

Look of the Day: Summer Blues...

Summer Blues

The last days, I really miss the summer with its warm days, flowing dresses and lovely sandals. The people are much happier in summer and everyone is so much friendlier. Don't get me wrong, I also love the winter but it always takes so long... After a few weeks of cold and freezing weather, I always get the summer blues. So to get a little bit more happy and friendlier, I've made a wonderful summer outfit with lovely pieces and sweet colors! My heart already fills with warmth at the sight of this outfit. 

Have a nice week!

I love this editorial featuring the beautiful Meghan Collison! The styling and hair & make-up is so stunning. And somehow she has the perfect look for this editorial... I can't say what exactly do I like about her, but she's extremely gorgeous in these pictures.
