I’m wearing:

  • Black Peplum Skirt – Vero Moda (old)
  • White sheer top – Century 21, New York
  • Black trench – Primark
  • Wedges – Camper
  • Black Leather Arm Cuffs – H&M Trend (also here)

What’s in a bag

Just arrived in Austria now, what a long roadtrip fulled with mountain views and McDonalds pitstops. But I am so happy to be here, can’t wait to get out in the snow/sun tomorow.

When I was packing all my stuff for my holiday here, and trying to take only the necessary, even in my handbag, I found out that my “necessary essentials” are very unisex, and I have a very un-girly, all black/white purse contents.

Here are my essentials, that I can’t live without and ALWAYS have to have in my bag:

From top left to right:

  • Carry-all leather clutch – American Apparel
  • Mini bottle of Daisy perfume – Marc Jacobs
  • My “Lucky scorpion” – little store Soho, New  York
  • Black, leather gloves – Primark
  • Oyster card to travel London
  • All white business card holder – Muji
  • Sunglasses – Ray-Ban
  • Silver USB pendrive
  • Orange lipstick – MAC
  • Iphone 4 – Apple
  • Analogue camera
  • Sheer purse – KG by Kurt Geiger

What’s always  in your bag?

Buns & roses

As you all know, it was V-day yesterday. me and my bofriend didn’t really plan to do anything, as we where both working in the day, and have a week full of pre-parties/launched/… for LFW ahead of us.

But, as we where op quite early in the morning, we decided to have a nice breakfast out together. We went to this amazing place near us called the Scandinavian Kitchen. As it is almost opposite the agency I work for,  I could stay warm and cozy until 5 minutes before I had to start. I really love Scandinavian food as it is always so healthy and pure.(AND it fits with the nordic cold weather at the moment!). Besides  honest priced meals, the Scandinavian Kitchen also has a little supper market inside with some real Scandinavian goodness!

Love the place!

I was wearing my new, nude colored KG beanie hat +  Leather jacket from Only + Black Forever 21 dress + American Apparel Male Cardigan & Clutch + Leather Primark gloves  + Topshop boots

How was your v-day?

Forget about main courses

Before the snow hit London and turned everything white, I met up with Paul for lunch yesterday. As he is working at The Koopels in Selfridges, we met at the Wagamama on the corner at his lunch break. Paul brought me the new look books, and as I told in my previous post (look here), the new collection is amazing.

I’ve loved Wagamama since I discovered it in Antwerp when I was still studying. So happy I can also enjoy it in London.

Today, we had some nice miso soup, skipped main course and went straight into a massive dessert; deep fried apple gyoza’s with ginger, cinnamon and vanilla custard, just what we needed to warm up.

I was wearing: Shirt: Zara, Jeans: Primark, Boots: Topshop, Clutch:American Apparel (+ my warm Zara coat)

Wearing: nude knit: Terminal D, Leather skinnies; Zara, Black blazer: Zara, Watch: Cheapo, Clutch: American Apparel

 Decided to ad an extra layer underneath to fight the cold. Shirt: H&M male collection.
