The holiday season is around the corner and that means a numerous amount of parties and events to attend. Each year I feel like I don't have enough outfits to dress up properly during these lovely days. Unfortunately I don't have an unlimited budget to spend on clothes. But thanks toOasapthis is no longer necessary. Oasap is a webshop which offers high-street fashion for low prices. Below I selected some of my favourite items for the holiday season, click on the links if you're interested in buying them.
De afgelopen dagen was het wat rustiger op de blog. Dit komt doordat ik vorige week in Antwerpen was voor de persdagen. De PR-bureaus stellen dan hun showrooms open zodat bloggers, stylisten en journalisten de collecties voor het volgende seizoen kunnen gaan spotten. Omdat ik zoveel showrooms bezocht dit seizoen, ga ik een beetje per categorie mijn favorieten tonen. Vandaag begin ik met de trends op kledinggebied.
The past few days I have been a bit quiet on the blog. This is because I spent a great amount of time in Antwerp last week because of the press days. PR agencies open up their showrooms for bloggers, stylists and press to discover the collections for next season. Because I visited so many showrooms, I will show you my favourites by category. Let's start with the clothing trends for this spring.
Flower power and prints
De lente is het seizoen bij uitstek om de gekste printjes uit de kast te halen. Dit is jaar na jaar zo en ook nu is dit niet anders.
Spring is the perfect season to take your craziest prints out of the closet. We see this trend return each year so no surprise there.
Rock & roll
In tijden van crisis en angst scheert de punk en rock & roll trend hoge toppen. Verbazingwekkend veel collecties hadden in hun lente en zomer collecties opvallend veel leer en edgy items zitten.
In times of crisis and fear, punk and rock & roll bring some comfort. A surprisingly amount of collections for this spring and summer have a lot of leather and edgy items.
Soft colours and fabrics
Een lente zonder zachte kleuren en stoffen zoals kant en suède, is hetzelfde als een Kerstmis zonder cadeautjes. Ik spotte zoveel mooie items in een aantal showrooms.
A spring without soft colours and fabrics such a lace and suede, are like a Christmas without gifts. I sighted so many gorgeous items in numerous showrooms.
Do you remember this blogpost from a few days ago in which I talked about wedding dresses? I found another gorgeous webshop called LandyBridal. As you want to remember this day for the rest of your life, it's very important to find a unique design. One of the most popular online webshops for weddings dresses is LandyBridal.
With 15 years of experience LandyBridal will make sure that both the bride and her guests will look fabulous on the big day. To help you find your way through the large selection of dresses, I'll show you some of my favourite designs.
Lace is definitely one of my favourite fabrics. It gives such a romantic touch to an outfit. Furthermore I love embellishments so the Fashion Illusion Natural Train Chiffon Ivory Long Sleeve Wedding Dress with Appliques from the vintage lace wedding dresses is my favourite.
Of course I get if some you prefer to have a more up-to-date and modern dress. Luckily LandyBridal doesn't only offer themed dresses but they also design some new dresses each year, discover them on the wedding dresses 2016 page.
NL: We hebben lang kunnen genieten van een milde herfst maar afgelopen weekend begon het dan toch eindelijk af te koelen en guurder weer te worden. Afgelopen weekend ging ik shoppen in Maasmechelen Village, een echte mode walhalla. Ik heb heel veel leuke dingen weten te kopen maar daarover later meer. De laatste tijd ben ik echt into blauw tinten maar dat merkten jullie allicht al aan deze outfit ;-) Wat vinden jullie trouwens van mijn gepersonaliseerde Stan Smith sneakers?
ENG:We enjoyed a real Indian summer of here in Belgium but last weekend temperatures finally started to drop. In spite of that I did some shopping in Maasmechelen Village, the fashion place to be. I bought some pretty things but more about that later. Lately I have really been into blue shades but you probably already guessed that by taking a look at this outfit ;-) Do you like my personalised Stan Smith sneakers?
pants: H&M // sneakers: Adidas Originals by Zalando // coat: Mexx // bag: Michael Kors // scarf: Louis Vuitton
Keep calm... I'm not tying the knot! But a lot of my friends are getting married next year so you can't blame a girl of getting carried away. I started dreaming what my perfect wedding day would look like and the most important thing is definitely the wedding dress. Of course I want to look like a real life princess but on the other hand I don't feel like spending a truckload of money on something you're only going to wear once. This is how I ended up looking for wedding dresses online and I stumbled upon the webshop CocoMelody.
CocoMelody has over 15 years of experience in the wedding business. The company designs everything in their workshop in California. You can order online or go to one of their shops all over the world to try on the gorgeous designs. Shop your wedding dress or bridesmaid gown at CocoMelody!
My dream wedding but definitely be somewhere on a sunny beach. This would mean no painful heels, a more relaxed atmosphere and a less tight dress. Check the selection of beach wedding dresses
Don't worry if beach weddings are not your cup of tea. CocoMelody has still plenty of other choices such as a brand new selection of 2016 wedding dresses
That's not everything. A little bird also told my CocoMelody has a lot of sale items and reductions.
ENG: Holiday season is around the corner and that means my search for the perfect party look has started. Once the clock strikes midnight on 31st December I want to be the most fashionable chick on the dance floor. This year I teamed up with Farfetch to put together my favourite outfit.
I always connect to holiday season to colours such as red, gold and black. These colours are chic and classy in my opinion. I also like to stand out from the crowd; so while other girls opt for a dress, I would rather go for a fancy top and some gorgeous boots.
Farfetch is of course the online shopping destination for every fashionista with items being offered by + 300 boutiques from all over the world. Farfetch only offers the best of the best. Scroll down to see from which brands I selected items and click on the brand's name to buy these items online.
Q: What would your perfect party look for the holiday season look like?
NL: Weer een feestje hoor ik jullie al denken... De laatste tijd worden de bloggers erg in de watten gelegd en deze week was de hoogmis voor modebloggers: de Zalando Blogger Awards. In verschillende categorieën werden de beste Belgische modebloggers gekozen. Maar ook voor de mensen die niet genomineerd waren, zoals ikzelf, was er ruimschoots entertainment voorzien.
Voor en na de award ceremonie werden we verwend me heerlijke drankjes en een uitgebreid pastabuffet. Er was een modepanel die ons vertelde hoe zij het gemaakt hebben in de modewereld. Zalando hadden enkele leuke spullen meegebracht uit hun showroom en last but not least was er een DIY corner. Hier kon iedereen ook een gratis paar Stan Smith's laten personaliseren. Ik hoef jullie allicht niet te vertellen dat vooral dat laatste erg in de smaak viel bij het publiek.
ENG:I hear you thinking: another party!? Lately bloggers get really spoiled and last week was a highlight for fashion bloggers: the Zalando Blogger Awards. The best Belgian fashion bloggers were elected in different categories. But there was also plenty of entertainment for people that didn't get nominated like me.
Before and after the award ceremony we could order some delicious drinks and eat from a gigantic pasta buffet. There was a fashion panel which told their inspiring story on making it in the fashion world. Zalando brought along some pretty goodies from their showroom and last but not least there was a DIY corner. Everybody got a free pair of Stan Smith sneakers to let them personalise. I think I don't need to explain that this made everybody very happy.
