Das Glück

Hello,
My time here in Belgium is passing by so fast. I saw a lot of new places, met exciting people and I m busy with some new projects and cooperations.
I want to share with you the most special vintage events I attended here. Radio Modern is a vintage party concept hosted by Neo Retro agency. 
There is a dance initiation, a beauty boudoir, a live band and swinging people all properly dressed. It is like stepping into a time machine. The event took place in "De Roma" one of the most magical vintage places of Antwerp. This venue is a classic 1928 cinema and was meticulously restored by enthusiastic volunteers. 

For this event I had opportunity to wear Das Glück dress.  Behind this brand are two really talented girls from Netherlands and Germany who make this classy and timeless dresses. They are really nicely made with good quality materials. And what is important they are custom made.  Here are Das Glück website and Facebook page and make yourself Glück with new piece of clothes

Woody Ellen bags

Dear readers,

Last Saturday was a lovely, sunny spring day, a perfect day for shooting these wonderful bags in a beautiful park full of cherry and magnolia trees.
Behind brand Woody Ellen is Ellen Cornelis, Belgian illustrator and painter, creative lady with magical hands,living in Lovendegem, near to Ghent.  She converts her beautiful painting into these wonderful bags.
Every bag is painted with a lot of love and creativity, on water resistant fibre. Every move of brush is precise and magical.

You look for something vintage inspired, colorful and elegant? Then take a look in her website or online shop, I m sure you will find something for yourself. You can choose between more different collections, different sizes of bags, and there you can also find wallets and little charming mirrors.

Ladurée Macarons, the "sweet caviar".

Dear readers,

The Parisian pattisier Ladurée was the first Macarons producer and became famous all over the world with boutiques in Paris, London, Geneva and recently also in Antwerp (Belgium). Like in Paris, it is a small but yet very romantic shop. In Antwerp the boutique is situated in the Schuttershofstraat, in the centre of the town. 

I am a big fan of these rainbow colored, multi flavored almond cookies with their rich palette of different tastes, textures and of course the smooth filling. 

We were delighted to work together with Ladurée in Antwerp in this marvelous atmosphere. A blue painted sky, french perfume, the aromas, the furniture and decoration brings me back to Paris in the roaring twenties. 

I hope this pictures will give you appetite for more of the "sweet caviar".
